Hi guys,

I'm kindly asking to evaluate my profile since I don't know wether it makes sense to apply or not.

Goal: Stanford.

About myself:
1. Male, Ukrainian, 31 y.o.
2. Employment overview:
- current: Danone, innovation manager
- before: Henkel, senior brand manager.
- before: P&G, junior brand manager, supply chain leader
3. Education:
- master of Transport technologies (full time, Ukrainian university)
- master of Marketing (part time in Ukraine, UK university in Ukraine).
4. GPA: 4.8 out of 5. Diploma with honors.
5. Extra curriculum:
- scientific publications and conferences in the university
- participation in charity organization (6 months) that helps children in need.
- squash, 4 years. Participation in amateur tournaments.
6. Career goal: consulting in FMCG sector
7. GMAT, The most interesting part :) since I can improve it.
- 690 (q48, v37)

I'm sure that I can reach 720, improving my math score. improvement of verbal can be tricky.

I want to apply in R3 this year. I can not postpone since I don't want to wait and I'm already admitted to one of the very cool schools in Europe.
However, I like Stanford because of its values and mission.

So please suggest whether I should apply in R3 provided that I'll improve my GMAT.

Thanks huge in advance!

Hey MDK,

Thanks for reaching out to me. It's not realistic to apply in Stanford's round 3. If you ask anyone at Stanford, they will tell you that applicants admitted in round 3 are a rare breed indeed. In fact, when someone in class announces they were admitted in round 3, everyone else in the classroom applauds – it is that hard to get in late in the application season at Stanford.

I would definitely accept the offer you have to go to the program in the EU. Although 31 years old is young in the grand scheme of things, we all know that you are nearing the end of your shelf life when it comes to getting accepted into a top program. It does not make sense to roll the dice at Stanford and forgo a great opportunity at an EU program. Certainly the same types of values and beliefs that Stanford possesses will be inherent in the culture of your EU program. Maybe not as much – but as long as you maximize it, you should be good to go on this front.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
