Hi,

Would appreciate if you could evaluate my chances for i) entry to H/S/W, and ii) full scholarship at a top 20. I'm a Pakistani professional; my profile is as follows:

1) 2 years work experience in the marketing function of Pakistan's top FMCG. If I apply this year, by matriculation I'll have 3 years of WE. My job includes planning (i.e. identifying growth opportunities in category on the 5 year horizon), campaign management (liaising with creative, media planning, activation, digital agencies) and innovation management (liaising with supply chain, R&D).
2) 770
3) Lahore University of Management Sciences (Pakistan’s best business university) I graduated top of the class with a GPA of 3.9. I also attended a student exchange program for a year.
4) President of international student club at university. Also won multiple national student competitions.
5) None
6) HBS, S, W. (if I can get a full-ride at a top 20, would definitely be fantastic)
7) R1, R2
8) Brand Management in CPG
Also, i'd like to hear your view on whether I should apply this year or gain further work experience (given that I don’t see any fundamentally different learning coming my way in the next year and a half at work- also I’ve read that applicants with good GPA/GMATs should apply earlier, as the more experienced you get, the lesser grades tend to matter.)

You have a competitive profile for your target programs. You may also want to consider Kellogg, Duke, Darden, Ross, and Tuck.

Best,
Linda

Hey,

Thanks for the response. Could you please elaborate on what sort of profiles/application aspects can help in securing a full ride at the likes of Kellogg/Tuck?

Thanks

You have some aspects of a profile that will increase the chances of getting funding: A very high GMAT and high GPA definitely help. Basically when you make the school look good or when the school things you will make it look good in the future, they are more likely to offer money. How can you do so? High stats are something easy to point to. Show that you share school values. Convince them through exceptional achievement, contribution, and leadership prior to your MBA that you will be an exceptional student and alumnus.

Best,
Linda
