  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 35%

    Tough Love Alert: Retake the GMAT or see if the GRE is more your style. Some 23% of the enrolled students at SOM got in with a GRE (20% at HBS, NYU (15%), and Duke (12%).

I like that you can talk to seeing multiple parts of your business cycle – and that you are currently leading an initiative to identify local/sustainable suppliers. I would suggest to dig in more here to help show the actions you are currently taking to build towards sustainability where you are. I worked with a client who was transitioning into energy sustainability from consulting and he thought through all the initiatives (even local within his company) that he was able to highlight to show his commitment to sustainability.
