    Ms. Business, Tech & Education, you check the boxes. You’re 3.5 GPA is slightly below the class average of 3.7 at Stanford but in the ball park. You got your undergraduate degree in economics from Northwestern University and there are three Northwestern alums in the GSB’s Class of 2020 who majored in economics, engineering sciences & applied mathematics, and psychology. Your GRE of 332 is two points above the latest 330 average for the class. You work for a top firm in consulting so I am going to assume it is MBB.

    Hey Ms. Business, Tech & Education! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Thanks for posting. I think you’re an exciting candidate…URM, great stats, great work experience. Candidates like you don’t come along that often…EXCEPT at HBS and GSB. Just be cognizant of that.
    My first recommendation for you is to take advantage of all the amazing resources that The Consortium provides. While the schools on your list don’t all participate, The Consortium is a great organization and has some great events and support resources.
    My second recommendation for you is to add one more school here….three-school strategies can be risky especially when two of those schools are HBS and GSB. Haas to me seems like the no-brainer given your goals but talk to current students and research …
