Candidate:

Ms. Aspiring Entrepreneur

About Me:

I’m a consultant-turned startup enthusiast. I’m currently working on a product in partnership with a major Chinese company by day (so I like to think I’m capable of handling cross-border relationships) and being a dog mom by night (and so far I’m not too bad at handling slightly crazy teenage dogs neither)

Details:

Undergrad School: Georgia Institute of Technology

Undergrad Major: Industrial Engineering

GPA: 3.8 (Highest Honor)

GMAT: 750

Age: 27,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Other Degree/Certification: Dual Bachelor's Degree

School Name: Emory University

Extracurriculars: Participated in dog related research, Runs pet social media account, Member of pet owner support group

Work History:

Title: Product Manager

Industry: Banking & Finance

Company: Start-Up In Selected Industry

Length of Employment: 1 yr

Title: Consultant

Industry: Consulting

Company: Top Firm In Selected Industry

Length of Employment: 3 yrs

Big Life Wins:

Gaining recognition as a TypeB person in the consulting world where most folks are Type A was a big win for me. From managing another team member as a fresh-in analyst or being entrusted to responsibilities beyond my role was rewarding. The ego for me was always getting a job done right and not so much about myself, but it has been working out well

Post MBA Goal:

My goal post-MBA is to work on my own start-up full time. I’m looking to gain better business acumen and upgrading myself to be a better leader and mentor such that I can be a fitting leader in my own start-up and lead the company down a sustainable path.

    Stanford would be making a big mistake by turning you down. You have a fascinating background as a woman, with a degree in industrial engineering from Georgia Tech (there are three MBA students at Stanford in the Class of 2020 from your alma mater, two who majored in mechanical engineering and one who majored in biomedical engineering. So Georgia Tech has definite cred with GSB admissions. Your 3.8 highest honor GPA in a difficult subject is a tad above the school’s class average and your 750 GMAT is nicely above the 732 average for the latest entering class. Plus, I like your experience as a consultant who is working on a product with a major Chinese company. And since you say your consulting firm is …

    Hello Ms. Aspiring Entrepreneur! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Thanks for posting.

    I got really excited when I read your profile — you seem to have both the stats and the work experience to get the attention of some of the best schools out there. What I am worried about for you is your goal of creating your own start-up. Have you already made progress on this or is this totally a post-MBA dream? I ask because entrepreneurial goals are so much easier to sell and understand if you’ve already made some progress and have something to show for it. If it’s more of just a dream, you may want to give your immediate post-MBA goal some more though. B-schools know that starting a business …

    I think your odds are definitely higher than average given that you have a very strong GPA and GMAT score. Georgia Tech is one of the top institutions for Engineering, so that should help. I like that you have a coherent story - one where you moved from Engineering (analytical background) to Consulting to Entrepreneurship. GSB makes sense as a next step. You should elaborate any results that you had with this recent startup experience.

    Your big wins need more reflection. If you command, how many people are under your wing? This helps to measure the impact of your voice. In your extracurriculars, feel free to share how many people your dog IG has impacted and improved. That X factor would certainly be welcomed everywhere.
