    Ms. Cybersecurity:
    It’s Emily from The MBA Exchange. I am a former Associate Director of Admissions at Columbia Business School and application assessor at Wharton and have now been consulting at The MBA Exchange for 4 years. Having seen so many applicants to CBS in these roles, I feel there is so much to like about your candidacy! B schools will love your experience working with females in tech and entrepreneurship. Your 3.7 from UNC, your feats of athleticism in the great outdoors and your professional management experience in tech consulting will all be positives for you. The 322 will be a hindrance at a school like CBS that really likes to see high testing numbers, especially on the quant …

    Ms. Cybersecurity – Susan Cera, Senior MBA Admissions Counselor, here.

    I really like the solid work progression and ongoing involvement. These will position you very well. Like the other experts, I’m a bit concerned about your GRE which feels a bit light for CBS which is constantly looking to drive up their scores. I would seriously consider retaking to strengthen your candidacy.

    Given your outside interests (which seem closely tied to the outdoors) I’m curious as to why CBS? If you like spending your free time hiking and biking, why would you want to be in NYC? To get the nod at CBS you need to tighen up your goals and research the resources that CBS (and NYC) offer that will help you get there. Be sure …
