New post Updated on: 06 Feb 2020, 03:00
Hello ! I am a 22 year old Pakistani student and planning to apply to HBS 2+2 MBA program. I am majoring in Political Sciences from most competitive university of the Pakistan i.e. Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) which itself has produced many students who go on to get a Masters from Harvard. I came to know about HBS 2+2 around 2 years ago, and these are my major achievements throughout my undergraduate career:

• Graduating with a 3.8+ GPA in High Distinction
• Graduating with 15 extra credit hours (Taken more 4 more courses than the graduation requirement)
• Graduating with 5 good certifications (Microsoft Office specialist, Data Science, Business Management)
• Have 2 excellent internships (United Nations and other one was leading the biggest student-run volunteership program at university) and 1 average
internship.
• Have participated at 3 international competitions or conferences (2 times at Harvard WorldMUN, 1 time at Harvard Crossroads Program)
• Have participated at 10 national debating competitions (Debating competitions held at national universities. Have won best speaker in 4 of them)

My GMAT score is 750, which i feel is really good. Also,I am recently planning to start my own organization which is focused on the dropping medical colleges and hospitals expenses. However, I will start working on it after my graduation. Let m know if there is someway to incorporate this as well.

Finally, I am also good as long as I am accepted at any early MBA admissions at Harvard, MIT, Wharton or Stanford or what are the chances at these universities as well. Please let me know are the shortcoming of my profile ? Do i look too nerdy ? I personally I have average extra-curricular but give me honest review kindly.

I will highly appreciate your response !

I'm currently coaching an applicant for the 2+2 with very similar stats. I think you have a fair chance of getting in provided you carefully craft your essay, make sure it highlights your uniqueness and strengths. Lots of applicants have high GMAT and GPA scores, not all get admitted. The differentiating factor will be your ability to show how you will contribute to the class and how you fit into the school's culture.

Best of luck!
