    Hi Ms. Artistic Engineer! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant. Let me start by saying that GSB is a reach for pretty much every applicant, so don’t be dismayed by the low odds I’ve assigned. I do think you’ll have a better shot at the other schools on your list. In terms of your profile, already having a PGDM must be addressed in your application. It is not an atypical situation, as I’ve seen others want a US MBA to upgrade their credibility/access to top employers, but you need a strong story around why the first degree was not sufficient and clear focus around how you’ll use a US MBA to benefit your career (and others, for GSB). I think the other challenge, especially …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 5%

    Hi Ms. Artistic Engineer, what a great combination you have! This is Donna Bauman with Stratus Admissions and I am happy to provide some insight on your profile.

You can get through this but you should address it in your application. For GSB, I want you to think big and mine your life for stories that can help you explain what matters most to you. This program is tough for anyone—let alone an international student applying one year after covid where as much as half of the spots for internationals …

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 5%

    Hi Artistic Engineer, this is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. Lots to like in the profile you have shared. Your academic scores are excellent. Both Jadavpur University and XLRI are top 10 in their respective domains. Your determination to do well academically really comes through. And it seems you have taken leadership positions outside work in your extra curricular activities. And a Product Manager role also gets you closer to your post MBA goals. So that seems to tie up well. My concern is that as my peers have mentioned, your prior MBA will be a hindrance at Stanford. They dont prefer those with a second MBA unless the candidates have substantial work experience in which case they ask them to apply for the …
