The Experts Rate The Odds At: 40%

  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 40%

    Congrats on that 740 GMAT score, ten points above the HBS class median. You have a solid background for a highly competitive application to Harvard. Your double major at a top ten to 15 undergraduate institution with a 3.54 is also strong. The fact that you are a relationship manager at one of the largest asset managers in the world is a job that I would presume to be highly selective as well. And your MBA will easily allow you to pivot your career into tech. If for any reason Harvard takes a pass, you should feel pretty confident that that three and possibly four of your other targets are going to say yes. Good luck to you.
