Candidate:

Ms. Access To Opportunities

About Me:

Grew up on a farmworker labor camp that instilled in me a passion to give back. As a Questbridge Scholar, I received a full-ride to attend Wellesley, not accounting for the 100k I received in private scholarships. The dearth of opportunities at my disposal motivated me to increase access for others by pursuing a career in public service consulting.

Post MBA Goal:

In the short run, I want to gain operational experience by working at a fintech startup that facilitates lending and borrowing to underbanked individuals. In the long run, I aim to transition from public service consulting to venture capital to continue bridging access to opportunities for marginalized communities by redeploying capital.

    Ms. Access to Opportunities – Thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus.

    Although your stats are on the softer side for Stanford GSB, I see glimpses of what is likely an authentic and compelling narrative about giving back. I think your AI/ML background will help adcom understand that you are capable of doing the work. You might consider taking a course to show that you are a stronger student today than you were during college. Consider using the optional essay to explain the circumstances behind your GPA.

    Stanford wants to admit students who change lives, change organizations and change the world. I think you are already doing this and an MBA from the GSB will put you on track to make a broader impact …
