  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 15%

    A lot will turn on which bank you had worked for before doing founding your social enterprise. If it is a major global bank that will make a very big difference to your odds because you have to overcome a few significant hurdles. Let’s go through them: 1) Your 650 GMAT is 59 points below the 709 class average at INSEAD. 2) Your GPA of 3.2 is also on the low side. Sure, based on INSEAD’s latest incoming class of MBAs, the range of GMAT scores is 660 to 750 but you have to know the 660 is an anomaly and probably belongs to a former professional soccer player or someone like that. I will also assume you were born in India, given your undergraduate …

The answers to these questions, as well as the quality of your recommendations, will speak to the strength of your professional experience.

    Regarding your academics – this will be a tough hill to climb. For the schools you’re considering, the average GPA is about a 3.5-3.7, and standards are even higher for Indian …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hi Ms. Impact Engineer, this is Melisa from Stratus Admissions. Congrats on your interview with Ross! Having KPMG and start up social enterprise experience puts you in a more unique pool than other Indian candidates. It is not clear where you are currently based, but I think it is going to be important for you to explain why an MBA is important for you and why now. With close to 7 years of experience (almost 8 if you are applying this next year), you will be higher than the average. Based on your goals, it sounds like you want to expand and grow your advisory firm. You want to be able to explain how an MBA is going to help you do that – and …
