  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 40%

    Hi Julie-Anne Heafey here with mbaMission. I’m a little unsure of the moderator note here about part time MBA programs – Yale and Tuck don’t have part time MBA programs, and normally we’d see people interested in part time programs in a specific geographic cluster so they can keep their day job, not all over the map. Also, part time programs aren’t the best for a pivot usually, so my guess is this assessment might be for full time programs. Ms. Biotech – am I understanding your interest correctly? So, looking at your story – MBA programs are swamped with applications from Indian engineers, but most of them are male…so I love that you are bringing a fresh perspective and supporting women’s …

    Hi Ms. Biotech, Melisa from Stratus Admissions here. It looks like you are thinking through different options and I love that flexibility. If you are interested in both full and part time programs, if you are able, I would encourage you to reach out to the part time programs. I am wondering if you may have the flexibility to live in either Chicago or SF, based on the part time programs you identified. Reach out and talk with programs. I have found that part time and executive programs are very interested in working with you to make sure the program is the right one for you. That said, I think your background sets you up to be very competitive in Haas and Booth’s part time …

    Hi there! It’s Stephanie Horn, Master Consultant with the MBA Exchange and recent Poets and Quants “Top 10 Admissions Consultants”. Ms. Biotech, you have strong engineering degrees, GPAs and test scores. Your work experience as a project engineer sounds like it gave you the opportunity to demonstrate your leadership skills and strategic thinking ability. It’s not clear to me if your role as a research associate was before or after the project engineer role — if you left for a start-up, you’ll need to explain how this is a step up in responsibilities and why you would choose to leave after one year. Looking at part-time programs is a very smart option. The part-time programs provide the same instruction, alumni network and brand cache as …
