    Ms. Green Biz: Emily here from The MBA Exchange. Congratulations on your acceptances!
    I agree that Tuck looks to be a good fit with your background and your goals and your GRE is in the ballpark for them (though probably on the lower side for Wharton). I’m not clear from your profile why you’d choose to enter the consumer goods industry, as opposed to any other industry that can make environmentally sustainable choices. In your interviews, you should address why your interest in that industry. Maybe you can tie in something you’ve learned about the industry from your work on the science publication?

    Hi Ms. Green Biz, Julie-Anne Heafey from mbaMission here. Congrats on your acceptance to Stern and Johnson! I like your passion, impact and clear goals, and though your GPA is on the low side (is there something specific that you were able to address in your optional essay?), your GRE looks within range for your target schools. Dartmouth is a very “green” and outdoors-oriented place – so I really think you’d fit right in. You’re chances look good to me if you’ve managed to demonstrate your interest in and connection to the school. Good luck!
