  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 75%

    Well, I will say you check every box for a successful outcome in Harvard Business School’s 2+2 program. You are at a prestigious undergraduate institituion: Duke University. You are majoring in STEM subjects: Electrical and Computer Engineering/Computer Science. You have a perfect GPA: 4.0. And you scored 40 points above the HBS median GMAT score at 770. And one more thing: You are a white woman who has demonstrated through her extras that you care about others. If you don’t get an interview, HBS needs to fire Chad Losee, the managing director of MBA admissions. Harvard’s 2+2 program was made for people like you! The only way you don’t get into HBS is by completely blowing the admissions interview. Good luck.

    Lots to like in your profile and I agree with John. You check all the boxes they are looking for.
    I believe Dee Leopold manages the 2+2 process and interviewing at HBS and her advice for not blowing the 2+2 interview is: Do not sound scripted. 😉

    Hello Ms. Software Accessibility! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Thanks for posting. Female candidates with 4.0 GPAs and 770 GMATs are very rare. Add in that you are a female engineer from Duke undergrad and this just gets even more exciting. I think you’ll want to clarify WHY you are passionate about accessibility in your applications…my guess is that it has to do with your volunteer work but if it’s more personal than that, make sure it’s clear. (Aside: I’m not entirely clear what you mean when you say “…a community of people with and without intellectual disabilities.” Assuming you’ve got some great college leadership experience(s), I think 2+2 programs will want to lock you down. Execute on your apps well and expand your list …
