  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 30%

    Your MD degree from Johns Hopkins buys you a lot of credibility. Truth is, not that many docs apply to full-time MBA programs. They tend to enroll in EMBAs and even the better online MBA options. So you will immediately stand out in the applicant pool at MIT Sloan. Since you only list Sloan, I am assuming that you really want to be in Boston. Given the small size of the incoming class at Sloan (416), however, the acceptance rate is really low: 11.5% for the latest incoming class. That’s even slightly lower than the 12% at Harvard Business School which enrolls a class that is more than double Sloan’s at around 930. Your GRE score of 307 is also below the mid-80% range published …

  • mbaMission Odds Assessment: 25%

    Hi Ms. Physician! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Kinda loving this combination — you’re a woman, you’re (presumably) from Ghana, and you’re an MD from Johns Hopkins! Candidates like you don’t come along that often so I think b-schools are going to be excited to see your application. BUT…the GRE score…you’re lower than where I’d like you to be. Because you’re so unique, it’s still possible that you’ll be successful but I’d love to see you give yourself the best possible chance at this crazy process. Hire a private tutor focused on you and your score and do some drills to get yourself to 320 if possible. You have the luxury of time between now and R1 2020. (I’m not clear if you’ve already applied …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling

    Hello Ms. Physician, Lisa Cummings of Stratus Admissions, formerly a Sloan adcomm. What an interesting profile, I know how hard it is to transition to US medical schools from elsewhere and Hopkins certainly is a top school. So congrats. While your profile will catch the eye of the committee so will your GRE score. I agree with Krista, work on that if you can. Have you tried the GMAT? If you haven’t, you may want to take a practice test cold just to see if you like that format better – some applications prefer one test over the other. In terms of experience, are you counting your residency as work experience? Most school do because, let’s face it, residency IS …

    You have a solid profile though one thing I think the adcoms are going to need to know is why after MD/MPH do you need an MBA and why Sloan specifically? Are you considering Wharton/Kellogg/Duke? Also, the GRE is slightly below what Sloan would need but given your strong MD/MPH background, I am less worried about that. Good luck!
