Profile Request for 2+2 and others [#permalink] New post 02 Jun 2011, 20:13
New to this forum and hoping to get some insight into my chances.

Junior at University of Maryland
Finance/International Business Major with minor in public leadership
GPA : 3.85
GMAT: 720

Currently starting my own non-profit dealing with Adult Education and currently serving on the Executive Board of another local non-profit dealing with Adult Literacy (have taught there for 4 years)

Two internships with financial consulting and auditing and looking to start my non-profit and would like the mba to help.

Was wondering what my chances were with Harvards 2+2 and with other top mba programs, even if it means I have to wait a year or two to apply to them.

Thank you

Hi jwalsh16,

You have a strong candidacy, particularly given the non-profit you are starting.

When I look at all of the clients we have worked with who have been admitted to HBS and other top programs, one of the words that stands out to me is impact. The people that were accepted do not just do their job, they go above and beyond.

There are a lot of factors that will play a role in your candidacy (letters of recommendation, personal essays, leadership experience, etc.), but for HBS in particular, I recommend you look for ways to make your application stand out. Your non-profit is a great start.

If you decide to apply to other top programs, most will want to see at least 2 years of work experience.

I hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
