Hi lapras,

You have a strong application, and your numbers are aligned with the programs you are looking at. Two things come to mind when looking at your application. First, MBA programs are looking to cultivate future leaders, so any leadership experience you can highlight is important. I did not see this in the summary you had written.

Second, you are in a competitive pool, so it is important to consider ways to differentiate your application. Here is how one candidate did this and was accepted into Columbia, Tuck, and MIT: http://www.stacyblackman.com/comprehens ... ies/case2/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team

Hi lapras,

Two factors admissions teams will strongly look at are your work experience and leadership experience. It looks like you have changed careers several times, and you should be prepared to address this in your application.

I also recommend you read this case study of a candidate from a family business. It should provide insight into ways you can approach your application: http://www.stacyblackman.com/2012/06/21 ... k-for-you/


Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
