Candidate:

Ms. Marketing Supe Latina

About Me:

I was born and raised in California as part of a fairly traditional Mexican-American family. A fact of life growing up was that one weekend per month (and every holiday) was reserved for visiting my grandparents in Mexico and, once I could speak, that the hours spent on the round trip across the border were for Spanish lessons.

Undergrad School: UCLA

Undergrad Major: Sociology

GPA: 3.1 (last two years 3.4)

GMAT: 720-740 (anticipated)

Age: 25,  Ethnicity: Hispanic or Latino

Extracurriculars: Two-time director of volunteer org. supporting local, financially needy schools to tutor kids in math & science.

Work History:

Title: SEO Supervisor

Industry: Marketing

Company: Global

Length of Employment: 2 yrs, 3 mos

Title: Sr. SEO & Digital Marketing Associate

Industry: Marketing

Company: Boutique Firm

Length of Employment: 2 yrs

Big Life Wins:

Contributed to an internat’l client’s good opinion of my agency by thinking of the name chosen for a new product. Exceeded my superiors expectations so regularly that I was the only new hire to receive a bonus after 6 months. A personal win is growing past my PTSD enough to feel eager at the prospect of an internat’l MBA, not intimidated by it.

Post MBA Goal:

After earning my MBA, my desired outcome would be that I gain experience taking on rewarding and challenging opportunities that rely on my ability to navigate alongside or within culturally diverse and foreign business entities, confident that I’m well equipped with the knowledge and connections to excel wherever in the world I choose to go.

    Having grown up in America and having the benefit of a close relationship with my immigrant grandparents from Italy, your story resonates with me. Every Sunday, our family sat down together around a big table and had dinner together. Those were special occasions as I am sure your monthly visits to Mexico to check in with your grandparents had to be special to you. So bottom line, if you can land that 700-plus score, you have a good shot at INSEAD. The school often finds it a bit more difficult to attract students from North America so that gives you an edge right there. Having earned your degree from UCLA, widely regarded as a public Ivy, is another plus. Your 3.1 GPA is a red …

    Hi. Ms Marketing Supe Latina! This is Kate Richardson with mbaMission, weighing in on your odds. I’m so glad to see you have international experience (and language skills — those car rides paid off!) as those are very important for INSEAD. I also really like that you have supervisory experience and top performance at your company. Directing a volunteer org is impressive too — great example of leadership and giving back to your community. You seem like someone with a high degree of motivation and a hard worker and I’m glad you’re pursuing an MBA. In terms of areas to improve, with your lower overall GPA, the GMAT is certainly important for you, so I agree with ideally ~730. Especially with your major and industry …

    You would need a higher GMAT/stronger experience to offset your lower GPA. A good rule of thumb is too look at the median test scores and GPA for matriculants at your prospective programs. I'm sure you are a great talent, but remember you have to prove you deserve a spot over other professionals. Please consider applying to other schools or retaking the GMAT (:
