  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 5%

    Reading your profile and the thoughtful perspectives by Nisha and Jennifer made me remember an article I wrote some time ago that showed the tremendous odds Indian candidates in particular face at U.S. business schools. We were able to get our hands on some incredibly rare data: the numbers of Indians and Chinese who apply at individual business schools and their acceptance rates compared to Americans and Europeans. The gap was rather shocking. It showed that Indians consistently faced much higher rejection, sometimes four to five times the rate of rejection for U.S. and European applicants.

    It’s one thing to continually say that Indians–male and female and especially male Indian engineers are the most overrepresented candidates in the elite MBA applicant …

    Hi, it’s Nisha, Sr. Consultant with from mbaMission. It sounds like you’re on a great track so far in your banking career. However, you are early on in your career (HBS students have an average of about 5 years of work experience) so I strongly recommend waiting at least another year to continue building a track record there – the HBS candidates I’ve worked with successfully had at least 4 years of work experience. Regarding your stats – you’re applying from a very heavily represented demographic, so I highly recommend retaking GMAT and bumping it up at least 10 points. You’ve got excellent outside involvement so far, and waiting the extra year+ to apply will give you the chance to continue increasing …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. Some strengths I see in your profile are that you’re a woman in a more male-dominated industry and you have global work experience. You have a solid GMAT and GPA, and I love that you have a clothing business on the side — that’s interesting! I do see some weaknesses though, some of which you can address before you apply (and some of which just are what they are!). You’re from an over-represented demographic so applicants like you have to work even harder to stand out. You’re quite light on work experience so I might recommend waiting at least a year to apply, which gives you the chance to gain more experience both at work and outside of …

    You have strong grades and with 1-2 promotions at a BB I think you'll be competitive from a professional standpoint. It sounds like you also have a unique extracurricular running an online clothing business; however, it would be helpful to better understand your story and how everything leading up to this point has led you to Harvard (and ultimately MBB).

    Way too young, don’t see Harvard admitting an analyst. Maybe in a few years as an associate or higher.
  • 10% | 7 days ago

    You're on the right track with on-target stats and fantastic work experience. You just need a bit more time for HBS.

    Hate to be redundant, but you haven't demonstrated growth progression in your roles so far.
  • 15% | 1 week ago

    Two young but if you get a bit more work experience you could be a very serious applicant to HBS.
