Canadian medical student profile Review for HBS [#permalink]

Hello!

Thanks in advance for reviewing my profile and providing feedback. I’m from Canada, and aiming for a top U.S. MBA (specifically GSB or HBS). I’m planning to apply in round 1 for the class of 2021 (so I’m submitting my application by Sep 2018). Also going to apply to Knight-Hennessey at Stanford – would appreciate feedback on my competitiveness for this as well.

GRE: 329 (V163, Q166, AWA 5.5)

Undergrad: 3.97 cGPA from most competitive undergrad program in Canada (also top premed program)

Graduate: Doctor of Medicine (from highest ranked medical school in Canada)

Work Experience/Activities: MBA-level summer intern at MBB (McKinsey/Bain/BCG). Cofounded and currently building a stealth health-tech startup. No full-time work experience as entered medical school straight out of undergrad.

The main question I have is whether I should retake the GRE. I’m unsure about the accuracy of the reported GRE medians for HBS/GSB as they’ve only recently started accepting it. I know my score is decent, but I took the test after 1.5 weeks of prep as I was pressed for time (cold diagnostic was 323…V164, Q159), so I’m wondering if I should spend a bit more time for a better score, or just use that time to focus on the rest of my application? Alternatively, does it make more sense to instead take the GMAT, as there’s more certainty about where I should be scoring? My cold GMAT diagnostic (GMAT Prep 1) before studying for the GRE was a 690 (V42, Q42), so I think I can pull off the necessary score with a bit of practice. I know this is likely a moot point as my score is probably fine, but I’m just trying to make sure I maximize chances first time around.

Hi mbahopeful3124,

Thank you for sharing your profile. From the background you provided, I don't think retaking the GRE or the GMAT will be a good ROI, but I would like to learn more about your profile. A couple of points on the GRE/GMAT will not break your candidacy should the rest of your profile be top-notch. If you are interested, we can schedule a free consultation to discuss further. Feel free to email us and schedule the call.

Best of luck!
