    Hi there! It’s Stephanie Horn, Master Consultant with the MBA Exchange and recent Poets and Quants “Top 10 Admissions Consultants”. Ms. Big Pharma, I love your passion.

You will need to demonstrate your quantitative abilities — hopefully, you got strong grades in math classes in college and have a good quant score on your GRE. If not, there are strategies you can pursue to offset this. You will also need to demonstrate your leadership and ability to set strategic, quantifiable goals through your work experience in your essays and letters of recommendation.

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 50%

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission! It’s always great to come across the profile of someone who’s so passionate about their industry, and healthcare will only continue to grow.

I think that as long as you’ve shown career progression (bolstered by excellent recommendations), explain your motivations behind wanting to switch to the strategy side of healthcare, and make a strong connection between yourself and KF to show why the program is a good fit for you (make sure to visit campus, go to events, and talk to students/alumni) you’ll be a solid contender.

    You’d mentioned big cities …
