Hello,

Thanks for your inquiry. It sounds like you have a lot of professional experience, now you’ll need to focus that into “leadership stories” in order to differentiate yourself from the field.

The first thing you’ll want to do is conduct your school research to see if your general statistics are in line with the school’s profile. LBS, HBS generally require a higher GMAT, around or above 700.

Once you’ve targeted a set where you fall within a reasonable range of the current student body in terms of your academics and test scores, you’ll want to work to differentiate yourself from the field by thinking through the ways in which your past experience demonstrates strong management and leadership potential.

You can visit mbaprepschool.com to understand more about how to shape this application, so that the program realized you’re serious about their program and that you have the right goals.

If you’re interested in learning more about our services then private message me.

Thanks,
Krista
