Hi simonayzman,

Thank you for your post, and for sharing your profile. You have an excellent profile with some incredible achievements. Warranted, you are targetting fitting programs. What will be challenging, which is always the case with dual programs, is applying to and being admitted into two programs, MBA and MS. Not undoable, of course, especially with a profile like yours, but it will require a strategic approach to both applications for each school. I would recommend you take the necessary time to flesh out your professional goals, why an MBA/MS, and why now, as that is instrumental to the success of your candidacy. You have accomplished so much thus far, so be sure to spend the remaining time, between now and the application deadlines, laying out your career plans.

I hope you are considering applying to the Knight-Hennessy scholars program at Stanford, whose application is due September 18th! If so, you must apply to R1 at Stanford.

I welcome the opportunity to continue the conversation. If interested, please reach out to coordinate a free consultation (contact details in signature).

Good luck!

Thanks for the reply! I’m in the process of writing essays and fleshing out some of those ideas.

Hi. I have 15 years of education. I want to apply for Masters in Managment in Canada. Most canadian universities and B-Schools accept only 16 years of edcuation. Will it help if i do a 1 year post graduate diploma or a any other post graduate program and then apply for MS? Will it become equivalent to 16 years of education. Thank you.

Hi Natashaprabhu97,

Thank you for your post. Have you reached out to target schools to confirm your eligibility as it pertains to your academic background? Standards vary from institution to institution. I would require more information to provide an adequate assessment. If you feel more comfortable sharing your information in private, please email us at infoSiaAdmissions so we can guide you further.

Good luck!

Hi, I am an Indian national lawyer working with an Indian law firm. I have been working for 2 years now, and my practice area has been predominantly venture capital. I graduated from a national law university in the year 2016. I am currently preparing for GMAT. What are my chances to get into a good B-school programme? Would a MIM (Masters in Management) course be a better fit for me?

Hi garima5,

Thank you for reaching out. I am happy to evaluate your profile; however, with such limited information, it's impossible for me to do so. Which university did you graduate from? What's your overall CGPA? Tell me about your job. Have you been promoted? Do you have leadership experience? Have you been involved in community outreach/extracurricular, while in school or post graduation? Why do you require an MBA? Why now? What is your post-MBA objective? What geographic region do you plan on being employed in post graduation? These are only some of the questions whose answers I require to guide you.

If you would like to have a live conversation (call), please reach out to schedule a free consultation (contact details in signature).

Good luck!
