    Admission at your first choice school, Stanford GSB, is a long shot. That is true for everyone, not only you, because the school rejected more than 93% of the self-selecting pool of candidates who apply to the GSB every year. In Stanford’s Class of 2020, moreover, there’s not a single student who graduated from either Megatrend University or the University of Begrade. Like it or not, Stanford goes heavily for Ivy League types. The top feeder colleges to the MBA program are Harvard (25 admits in the Class of 2020), Stanford (23), Yale (19), UPenn (15), Columbia (13), Brown (11), Dartmouth (10), and Princeton (9).
    Those students make up a good chunk of the 419 MBAs in the class. In fact, 53% of the class …

    Hello Ms. Economics! Thanks for posting. Krista Nannery from mbaMission here.
    Funnily, I spent pretty much all of April last year in Belgrade, working remotely during our quieter season and trying to write my novel. I ate a lot of cevapi!! (Didn’t make much progress on the novel unfortunately.)
    Back to you — I have actually NEVER worked with a Serbian client before. That makes comparisons more difficult but given your excellent academic results, strong GRE, and interesting international work experience, I think you will stand out during this competitive process.
    If you were my client, here’s what I would try to figure out with you:
    US work experience…is it too boutique-y? I’d try to make this really easy for the AdCom to understand and sell it as …

    I believe you have to focus on having a coherent story. It is okay to change tracks, that is the ultimate goals for most MBA students anyway, but as it stands in your MBA Watch profile, I am unable to fully understand your story. You studied Economics, worked in retail and steel industries, went back to school to study Marketing and PR, and pursuing an MBA for AI and Data Science. If I am AdCom, I want to see the factors that led you to make these pivots in your career.

    On your big life wins, feel free to tell us how many people were in the contest. It will help to measure the magnitude of your victories. You can strengthen your Quant metrics with some courses in statistics and machine learning to show the adcoms that you have what it takes (besides a strong GMAT)

    Megatrend has a very poor reputation as a degree mill. Curious to know why you chose to go to school there? Also, lack of real leadership experience is a problem. Business Assistant at a Steel company? What did you actually do? Or an assistant manager at a retail company? Definitely need a good story.
