  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 50%

    Wow. You are a super impressive candidate. I love what you’ve been able to achieve. There are few women with STEM backgrounds at a public Ivy with a3.74 GPA in mechanical engineering and a 750 GMAT. And even fewer with experience at two Fortune 500 companies. And being a lover of music myself, I especially like a quant who has a real creative or poet side as evidenced by your involvement in the Collegiate Marching Band and in a Community Orchestra that peforms for the elderly in assisted living centers. That said, Stanford is a tough one given the low acceptance rate of under 7%. But your story should tilt the odds very much in your favor. I hope you do …

  • Odds Assessment: 35%

    Rock solid professional profile featuring two (!) Fortune 500 brands, no less. The rigor of your job responsibilities is obvious and significant, helping differentiate you from all the consultants and bankers banging on Stanford GSB’s door! And your stated post-MBA goal of working the autonomous vehicle space is way cool. However, you should go beyond that to state an even cooler long-term goal, even if just hypothetical. GSB expects candidates like you you to reach beyond the stars because they can actually get there! Your academic background is outstanding with a 3.7 ME degree from UT (Hook ‘Em Horns!) topped off with a 750 GMAT. I’d say your biggest, immediate constraint is in the realm of current non-work activities as I see no evidence …

  • mbaMission Odds Assessment: 50%

    Hello Ms. Test Engineer! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Every so often, a profile like yours comes across my desk and I just get so excited. You are one of those super-rare types of candidates. Female engineer, great stats, (presumably) great brands on your resume. As an engineer, your challenge in this process is going to be making sure the AdComs “get” what you do. Watch out for jargon and don’t get too technical on your resume. AdComs know a little bit about a lot of things but they are not experts and will not take time to google anything to understand it. Given that with your musical interests, you seem like a good balanced right brain/left brain person, but just be careful here!

    GSB would …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling Odds Assessment: 45%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. I’m super impressed with your profile! Such great stats alongside strong work experience. You will stand out in your demographic with these stats and will be competitive at Stanford. The problem is that so many people are super-qualified and still don’t wind up getting a seat at the GSB. So to maximize your chances and really make your application shine, you need to really shine through as a person and as a candidate. Emphasize WHY you want to go into the autonomous vehicle industry, and how, with the help of an MBA from Stanford, you will be able to change the industry, and the world. Stanford gives you ample space in your essays to delve into who you …
