    Hi Dental Surgeon, this is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. A lot of good points have been covered above by other experts. Will try to add to those thoughts. Pardon my directness here but it seems you are operating in a “anything but this” mode. You seem more passionate about leaving dentistry than about getting to another role. At least that what comes across from your introduction. Dont see a direct connection between your dentistry experience, non profit experience and moving to a broader healthcare role. Also if seeing a smile on your patients face is a big life win, why would you want to give that up. It doesn’t add up. My suggestion would be to therefore “go deep” and gain clarity on what …

    Hi Ms. Indian Dental Surgeon,

    Ms. Indian Dental Surgeon – Thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus.

    At Fuqua, I spent ~6 years evaluating applications from Indian nationals so I’m well positioned to offer my thoughts.

    While your experience as a dental surgeon is unique, your stats are soft for someone in a super competitive demographic. I’m curious about the impact that you have made as a surgeon and why you want to move away from that role. It will be important for you to tell this story in your application.

    Fuqua, perhaps more so than other schools, values community engagement. I may be missing it but didn’t see any meaningful extracurriculars.

    I’m not sure when you intend to apply but you should build out your profile and make …
