  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi, it’s Nisha here from mbaMission! You’re coming from an IIT, have an above-average GMAT score, and have made progress on the CFA, so academics shouldn’t be an issue. So let’s look at other parts of your profile. Regarding your work experience, can you clarify what you meant by “Switched job because I felt the need to be expert in a field before leading”? Business schools will want to know what shaped your path, so you’ll want to be clear on why you changed companies so early on (not that this is necessarily a negative). In any case, the strength of your professional profile will depend on the impact and progression (in terms of title, responsibility, compensation) that you’ve made at …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. You have a really strong GMAT and a fine GPA from a challenging major and school. I’m intrigued by your extracurricular work at the nonprofits and think that should be an area you really explore in your applications, particularly because you mention wanting to start your own company one day maybe focused on inequality. Connecting these dots will be critical for your story, or else it will be hard to differentiate yourself from other Indian applicants with great experience in finance and engineering. HBS will really like the leadership roles in college and at your jobs, as well as the strong analytical skills you’ll be able to show. This community citizenship piece is the third major area …

    Universities will want you to translate that GPA in the 4.0 scale, Consistency is key when you report your extra-curriculars as you mentioned 'leading 1400 students' but silence is omnipresent when you discuss about 'education for children' and 'women in distress'
  • 75% | 5 months ago

    You have a great background. A few concerns I have is you need to be specific about your goals and why you think HBS will help you achieve. They know that everyone wants to come to HBS but you need to have a strong reason and personal story that shows them that you have really thought it through and not applying just because its HBS. Good luck!
