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

    An art history major wanting an MBA? I love it. And given your stints in marketing roles in a range of industries, including the arts, management consulting, ed tech, and higher education, you would bring to the MBA classroom some very different perspectives. As some of the other experts here have noted, however, your numbers are a bit low for Berkeley Haas which is a highly selective school (a 17.7% accept rate) with a relatively small intake of 283 students. Yet, your 314 GRE score is nine points below the class average of 323 and your 3.36 GPA in what would be perceived ot be an easy subject is also quite short of the 3.67 average for the latest entering class. Those are averages, of …

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hi, it’s Nisha, Senior Consultant from mbaMission here! It sounds like you’ve built a broad range of skills from your marketing management and your nonprofit role. What schools will care about most is the impact you have made in your roles as well as the progression (in terms of title, responsibility, and compensation) – I don’t have much information on that, but make sure that it is captured in your resume and application. Your interest in nonprofit consulting is logical – one thing to keep in mind is that there are few nonprofit consulting firms out there, so I recommend stating in your application that you’ll be pursuing both management consulting and nonprofit consulting opportunities post-MBA. In fact, I’m working with a …

  • Sandy Kreisberg, The HBS Guru | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Berk Haas is a good choice but it is going to be a reach. Your GPA and GRE scores are below their average by a good deal. They will respect the fact that you have a lot of experience in non-profits but you could make life easier for them if you retook GRE and got it up. As we often say, schools may blink once (GPA, GRE, Work Ex etc) but you are asking them to blink twice.
    Not super clear what you are doing now but you need to get those folks seriously behind you, “academic institution to academic institution.”

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 25%

    Hi, this is Melisa, Admission Counselor from StratusAdmissions. Your experience across Non-Profit and B-Corps will speak to Haas’ Institute for Business and Social Impact. I like that you are showing increasing titles in the role examples you gave. I would want to hear more about the impact that you have made within these roles – where you’ve been able to take a leadership role and/or create innovation. I can see a natural story line from consulting to non-profit and then combining the 2 within non-profit consulting or a mission driven organization. You’ll want to make sure that you can clearly show how you have embodied the leadership principles through your work and tutoring. With your Art History major and GPA, I would want to …

    You can compensate that GPA if you take some courses of statistics or advanced mathematics. Also, if you aim to enter Management Consulting alas McKinsey, Bane or BCG, they will ask GMAT (starting from 700)
