Hi there Dre1091,

So -- right off the bat: I did a conversion of your GRE score to GMAT score and I hate to be the bearer of bad news BUT it's the equivalent of a 630...(according to the ETS's score converter?).

Columbia's middle 80% for GMAT scores has a 700 as the bottom of the range -- that means only 10% of the class gets in with a score lower than 700. Anecdotally and unscientifically, this tends to be people who are super-rich, are non-native English speakers (so the Q was high but V was low), or add significant leadership/diversity to the class.

Unless you can get that score up to something closer to the competitive range, I'm afraid that all of the schools you mention may have similar results.

If you can get the score up, then ask around your firm to see who else has gotten into MBA programs in the past 5 years or so, doing the job you do. This will help you get a sense of how your role / company is perceived by b-schools.

I can't give more advice since there is almost no information here to go on -- does "M&A Consulting" mean you're personally actively guiding companies through the merger process, or does it mean that you are merely using your CPA to do due diligence? There's a big difference...?


Thank you,
Maria

Hello Pitbird!

Thanks for your inquiry - in sum, do not waste your time trying to reach the upcoming INSEAD deadline. I worry that your TOEFL score is too low -- after all, they specifically say that they want candidates to have at least a 105 to apply -- and so what's the point of applying in R2 if the score may disqualify you?

The picture for HBS is even more grim. Yes, people get in to HBS above age 30, but please realize that the bar for achievement is then quite high --- and you are far below their minimum TOEFL of 109. HBS in particular is rightfully focused on the TOEFL since its curriculum requires reading a lot of material every single night and also being able to debate vigorously in English. Have others from your NGO gone to HBS in recent years? If so, ask them what their stats / achievements were that got them accepted.

I don't think you're too old for INSEAD, they do tend to be more open to older candidates, but I would urge you to cast a wider net in your school consideration set. Even people with flawless stats should look beyond H/S!


Thank you,
Maria

Thank you Maria for such an honest answer. I know no one from my NGO who went to HBS but there are surely some because it is one of the biggest NGO. I will take another TOEFL exam. But what about my GMAT score?

Hi there -- I'd prefer that the GMAT score be closer to the averages, but for INSEAD in particular it's not a deal-breaker. I had a client from Africa last year with a lower GMAT score get into INSEAD (a sub-700 GMAT). Thanks!

Thank you Maria. I thought that for INSEAD the first two rounds were the best for applying. Afraid to reduce my odds by applying R3 just for the TOEFL. Difficult decision.

Yes, the first 2 rounds are DEFINITELY better, but there is no use in applying in R2 if your score is too far below their stated requirement? As an AdCom person I've heard of likes to say: "Why are some people in such a hurry to hear 'no'?" Perhaps you could contact their AdCom and see if a 101 is still acceptable. In my experience, especially for such a global program, where everyone is coming from around the world, it's VITAL that everyone be at the same level of English, so I would think that INSEAD would be pretty firm on this number, but you never know unless you ask!

Hi Maria,

I've called them and they say that the score will not disqualify me. The score is just 4 points below the recommended score. There is no minimum at INSEAD, they said. They will look to the overall quality of my application. But I still don't feel confident to apply for tomorrow (R2)

Thank for your usefull feedback

Hi ApplicantLab,

I would like to request a suggestion/opinion on a confusion I am facing. One of the B-School Forum Moderators suggested that I reach out to you for help as you people have a rich experience in the MBA admissions process.
I received an admit from a business school in Georgia, USA with a full scholarship and stipend/graduate assistantship. Therefore, I asked other MBA schools for which my decision was pending after the interview if it is possible to provide my application decision sooner as I already have a decision in hand and wish to make an informed decision before paying out the enrollment fee. The schools reverted with a request to send them a copy of "Admission Letter" and "Scholarship Letter" before taking the case to the Admissions Committee for decisions.
Now, I am little confused whether to provide the letters or details such as the name of program, amount, the deadline for payment, etc. to those schools. I am not sure whether this would put my only admit into jeopardy or help me.
Kindly advise. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi there,

I see no downside to providing this information to the schools that asked for it -- I'm not sure why it would put the one admit into jeopardy? The other schools are probably asking for this to make sure that you're telling the truth, and since you are, then there's no downside to providing this information?


Thank you,
Maria

Hi Maria,

I guess you are busy since the deadline for Round 2 is near but appreciate your time to help evaluate my profile and answer some of my questions below.

Questions:
1. I’m expecting a baby coming mid-Mar 2019 so I want to apply for Round 2 and finish interview before my due date. Having a baby is also the reason I want to apply for part-time MBA as well. Is that a disadvantage for me?
2. Do you recommend me taking the GMAT one more time to improve score before Round 2 deadline on Jan 15? I’m not certain if essay writing quality will be compromised if I include the GMAT practice in my schedule.

Hi Maria,

Thank you for your time! Originally, I was planning to wait until the fall of 2019 to apply to MBA programs to build up my work experience; however, I figured that applying to some programs this year would be a good way to get a feel for the application process (and perhaps get accepted to one of my top choice schools).

I chose to apply to Yale and Northwestern this fall, and got denied at Northwestern and waitlisted at Yale after an interview. I am not yet applying to any Round II schools, and I'm planning to enroll in the HBX CORe program in January to help strengthen my position on Yale's waitlist. (I expect to get my CORe results back in mid-April, which would fall after Yale's round II decision date (April 2) but before the round III date (May 21).

An overview of my background/experience:
27 y/o white American male
3.66 GPA (magna cum laude) from a top-5 LAC; graduated in 2013
Graduated from a Master of Social Work Program earlier this year and working full-time at a Catholic social services organization in Indiana
780 on the GMAT (Q50, V48, AW 6.0, IR 8) (took the GMAT in November 2016)
Work experience: worked for 1.5 years as an AmeriCorps VISTA member prior to grad school. I researched and gave presentations on unaccompanied child migration from Central America. I started my current position as a counselor in June 2018, so I will have about 2.5 years of work experience if I matriculate in 2019, and 4.5 years if I matriculate in 2020.
(I also spent a year in a religious order, and although I wouldn't really count it as work experience, I figure I should put it on my resume so schools aren't wondering what I did the year after I graduated from college.)
As I mentioned above, I am planning to enroll in the HBX CORe program in order to gain a background in finance, microeconomics, and analytics. I believe this coursework will help demonstrate to schools that I am prepared to take on MBA-level quantitative coursework.

Intern/volunteer experience: The MSW program involved about 1,000 hours of field experience. I interned at a mental health center for the first half of those hours, and for the second half, I interned at a homeless services agency in DC. I also interned at a men's transitional home in the summer of 2016, and worked on a project to assess residents' perspectives on the program. I also spent 3 months living and working with immigrants from Central America at a shelter in Houston back in 2013.

I am greatly enjoying my work as a counselor. However, I am ultimately hoping to pursue an MBA so that I can transition to nonprofit management. My goal is to help nonprofits grow and develop so that they can better serve their clients. Following graduation, my plan would be to work as the director of development for a medium-sized social services nonprofit, or as an associate director at a larger social services nonprofit.

Here are some questions I have at this time:

1. I would love ask Yale and Northwestern for feedback on my applications this year, as this could help boost my chances of acceptance the following year (or getting off the waitlist at Yale). Would it be a bad idea to reach out to them directly for feedback? I'm guessing the areas that I most need to strengthen are my work experience and quantitative background, but getting some confirmation on their end would be much appreciated.

2. Do you have any guesses about my chances of possibly getting off the waitlist at Yale after completing the CORe program? I imagine this is hard to answer, as the odds must change a lot from year to year.

3. I am greatly enjoying working at a Catholic nonprofit, and I hope to continue serving at a Catholic organization following my MBA studies. With this in mind, I have been thinking about Notre Dame and Georgetown, as both are Catholic universities that I believe will offer a solid nonprofit management education and a great career network. In fact, I have even been considering submitting an application to one or both of these schools for Round II of this year. What advice would you give about that option? Part of me feels it would be more prudent to wait until next year to apply (especially because I am still on the Yale waitlist).

4. If I don't get off Yale's waitlist, and if I don't apply to any schools for round II, then my plan would be to apply to a number of schools next year (ideally before the round I deadlines). Here is my list for round I 2019 applications at this point. I would appreciate any feedback you might have on my chances and on my goodness of fit for each program. I'm certainly open to adding other schools, but that may require taking some off this list (at least for Round I).
I recognize that applying to 8 schools in one round is a lot of work, but I think the deadlines for these schools will fit together pretty well, and I'll be able to start working on essays during the summer. I'm open to shifting to a 2-round plan, though.

1. Columbia (would apply ASAP to benefit from the rolling admissions process)
2. Yale
3. Northwestern
4. Michigan
5. Duke
6. Notre Dame
7. Georgetown
8. Harvard

Thank you in advance for your feedback!

Hi Annie!

First of all, congrats on the upcoming arrival :)

Secondly, before we even get into your candidacy, you might want to reach out to the Haas EWMBA program and see if you're eligible to attend, given that you are not currently employed. I'm not sure about Haas, but I know that some part-time MBA programs want students to be currently employed while doing the program, so that should be your first step.

Thirdly, given your career goals, I'm not even sure that you need an MBA? I think an MBA might be overkill. I'd advise you to instead look in to Masters in Real Estate, which are 1) shorter (and therefore cheaper) and 2) less of a hassle to get accepted to than typical MBA programs.

If I were you, I'd look into these things first (or, well, concurrently) with applying to programs.


Thank you!,
Maria

Hi there!

Ok, to answer your questions:

1) Northwestern will probably not give you any feedback, so I wouldn't even bother asking. Yale on the waitlist -- SOME schools will give specific feedback on why someone is on the waitlist, but MOST do not. The expectation is that you self-assess your candidacy and try to guess what may have been lacking -- note that nothing may have been "lacking" per se; it could just be: "We like this guy.....buuuuuuut.... let's see who we get in R2 who might be the same but a smidge stronger...." With a 780 GMAT, I don't think it's academics that kept you out -- so yes, sure, go ahead and take HBx Core for your own edification, but don't bank on it being "The Thing" that gets you off of the waitlist per se.

2) Odds of getting off the waitlist depend upon how many other social workers they get in R2 with a profile similar (but maybe a smidge stronger / a smidge weaker) than yours. Sorry -- don't have any numbers. I do suspect that Yale, given its relatively recent salivation over GMAT scores (they are trying to get their avgs up) really REALLY likes your 780, and I'm guessing not a lot of social worker types are scoring at that level.

3) I'd wait to apply until next year. And then yes, cast a wide net and look into the Jesuit programs as well. The reason I say this is that you JUST got your MSW degree relatively recently. You're "lite" in the work experience space, and I worry that THEY will worry: "Does this guy actually know what he wants? Or is he a 'degree-collector' -- someone who is never happy and is simply looking to get degree after degree to try to solve their existential angst :) ?" If you live in Indiana now, and you have a 780 --- my hope would be that Notre Dame would love you!

Over the next year, see if you can try to get involved in SOMETHING, ANYTHING on the "businessy" side of where you work. That will help prove to them that you actually WANT to work on the business side (not everyone does, when they deeply reflect on what would make them happy -- managing can be a real pain, ha ha), and that you're not just hopping to the next shiny object but really know what you're getting in to.


Thanks!,
Maria

Hi Maria,

Thank you for your time! Originally, I was planning to wait until the fall of 2019 to apply to MBA programs to build up my work experience; however, I figured that applying to some programs this year would be a good way to get a feel for the application process (and perhaps get accepted to one of my top choice schools).

I chose to apply to Yale and Northwestern this fall, and got denied at Northwestern and waitlisted at Yale after an interview. I am not yet applying to any Round II schools, and I'm planning to enroll in the HBX CORe program in January to help strengthen my position on Yale's waitlist. (I expect to get my CORe results back in mid-April, which would fall after Yale's round II decision date (April 2) but before the round III date (May 21).

An overview of my background/experience:
27 y/o white American male
3.66 GPA (magna cum laude) from a top-5 LAC; graduated in 2013
Graduated from a Master of Social Work Program earlier this year and working full-time at a Catholic social services organization in Indiana
780 on the GMAT (Q50, V48, AW 6.0, IR 8) (took the GMAT in November 2016)
Work experience: worked for 1.5 years as an AmeriCorps VISTA member prior to grad school. I researched and gave presentations on unaccompanied child migration from Central America. I started my current position as a counselor in June 2018, so I will have about 2.5 years of work experience if I matriculate in 2019, and 4.5 years if I matriculate in 2020.
(I also spent a year in a religious order, and although I wouldn't really count it as work experience, I figure I should put it on my resume so schools aren't wondering what I did the year after I graduated from college.)
As I mentioned above, I am planning to enroll in the HBX CORe program in order to gain a background in finance, microeconomics, and analytics. I believe this coursework will help demonstrate to schools that I am prepared to take on MBA-level quantitative coursework.

Intern/volunteer experience: The MSW program involved about 1,000 hours of field experience. I interned at a mental health center for the first half of those hours, and for the second half, I interned at a homeless services agency in DC. I also interned at a men's transitional home in the summer of 2016, and worked on a project to assess residents' perspectives on the program. I also spent 3 months living and working with immigrants from Central America at a shelter in Houston back in 2013.

I am greatly enjoying my work as a counselor. However, I am ultimately hoping to pursue an MBA so that I can transition to nonprofit management. My goal is to help nonprofits grow and develop so that they can better serve their clients. Following graduation, my plan would be to work as the director of development for a medium-sized social services nonprofit, or as an associate director at a larger social services nonprofit.

Here are some questions I have at this time:

1. I would love ask Yale and Northwestern for feedback on my applications this year, as this could help boost my chances of acceptance the following year (or getting off the waitlist at Yale). Would it be a bad idea to reach out to them directly for feedback? I'm guessing the areas that I most need to strengthen are my work experience and quantitative background, but getting some confirmation on their end would be much appreciated.

2. Do you have any guesses about my chances of possibly getting off the waitlist at Yale after completing the CORe program? I imagine this is hard to answer, as the odds must change a lot from year to year.

3. I am greatly enjoying working at a Catholic nonprofit, and I hope to continue serving at a Catholic organization following my MBA studies. With this in mind, I have been thinking about Notre Dame and Georgetown, as both are Catholic universities that I believe will offer a solid nonprofit management education and a great career network. In fact, I have even been considering submitting an application to one or both of these schools for Round II of this year. What advice would you give about that option? Part of me feels it would be more prudent to wait until next year to apply (especially because I am still on the Yale waitlist).

4. If I don't get off Yale's waitlist, and if I don't apply to any schools for round II, then my plan would be to apply to a number of schools next year (ideally before the round I deadlines). Here is my list for round I 2019 applications at this point. I would appreciate any feedback you might have on my chances and on my goodness of fit for each program. I'm certainly open to adding other schools, but that may require taking some off this list (at least for Round I).
I recognize that applying to 8 schools in one round is a lot of work, but I think the deadlines for these schools will fit together pretty well, and I'll be able to start working on essays during the summer. I'm open to shifting to a 2-round plan, though.

1. Columbia (would apply ASAP to benefit from the rolling admissions process)
2. Yale
3. Northwestern
4. Michigan
5. Duke
6. Notre Dame
7. Georgetown
8. Harvard

Thank you in advance for your feedback!

Hi Maria,

Thank you very much for the prompt and detailed response! I think you are spot on about my need to demonstrate that I see the MBA as an integral part of my career development, and not as some trophy. I am looking forward to using the MBA and my MSSW together to help expand services to clients.

If you have any thoughts about what my chances might be at the schools on my list (or if there are any schools I should consider adding or dropping), I would greatly appreciate that too—but you have already been very helpful!

Thanks Maria :)

I asked Haas, and they said I would still be eligible to apply but my application would be less competitive than other candidates. They also advised to include my situation in the application with a plan to secure employment after graduation. This will most probably be my optional essay.

On Masters of Real Estate vs. an MBA, I have thought about it too (and the cost difference). One thing that made me want to do an MBA is that in real estate consulting, knowing contacts in other industries and landing new clients will help to advance career faster. Also, most of my global clients previously have headquarters in the US so learning "management" here will help me stand out in leadership team later if I go back to Asia.

The networking benefit of an MBA does sound cliche though so please do share your view if I over-value it in my situation.

Appreciate your feedback as usual,
Annie

Hi Annie!

First of all, congrats on the upcoming arrival :)

Secondly, before we even get into your candidacy, you might want to reach out to the Haas EWMBA program and see if you're eligible to attend, given that you are not currently employed. I'm not sure about Haas, but I know that some part-time MBA programs want students to be currently employed while doing the program, so that should be your first step.

Thirdly, given your career goals, I'm not even sure that you need an MBA? I think an MBA might be overkill. I'd advise you to instead look in to Masters in Real Estate, which are 1) shorter (and therefore cheaper) and 2) less of a hassle to get accepted to than typical MBA programs.

If I were you, I'd look into these things first (or, well, concurrently) with applying to programs.


Thank you!,

Hello Maria,

Could you help evaluate my application and share your advice.

Female, 25 years old.
Study undergraduate in Vietnam (3.6/4.0 GPA) and Master degree in the UK.
GMAT: 670 (Q46-V39)
Working experience:
2 years in the Leadership Program of Unilever Vietnam.
6 months in the Assistant to Managing Director of a big local food manufacturing firm in Vietnam (annual revenue of $100M)

Some other extra information:

My concern is that the local firm is my family business in which my mother is the Chairman. Therefore, should I use the Rec Letter from my current company or should I ask for LOR from one of my client in Japan/Hong Kong?

Hi there -- well, it sounds like they're telling you it's going to be a tough thing to get in, so your essays will need to be super-strong. ApplicantLab can help you there!

I'm afraid that I don't work in real estate so I can't comment on the value of the broader network of the MBA. I'm not sure that many of my classmates have needed commercial real estate consulting in their careers, so I'm not sure that it would be useful for you to know them, if you see what I mean? But this is where lots of research really pays off! Ask around and see what others say!


Thank you!,
Maria

Hi there! The main thing that jumps out at me is:

Quote:
My concern is that the local firm is my family business in which my mother is the Chairman. Therefore, should I use the Rec Letter from my current company or should I ask for LOR from one of my client in Japan/Hong Kong?


This is an easy one to answer -- it MUST be from someone who is NOT a family member. Therefore, your client sounds like the best bet.

The one thing that concerns me a little is your GMAT score, which is below their average. If your quant score was strong, I'm less concerned since they will give you (I hope!) some leeway on verbal. However, if quant was your downfall, I'd urge you to consider re-taking it if possible. If you can't that's ok, just write an optional essay explaining how the GMAT score does not fully represent your quant / analytical skills.


Thank you!,
Maria
