I just found out about HBS 2+2 so I'm a little late to the party, but should still be able to get the application in before R3.

I understand that HBS 2+2 is super competitive, so is there any idea in me applying?

B.Sc and M.Sc in Computer Science from top 1 technical university in Sweden. 4.7/5.0 GPA
B.Sc in Business (taken in parallell) from top 5 university in Sweden. 4.1/5.0 GPA
A couple of extra-curriculars with leadership experience, including one major project with 27 people reporting to me and a budget of $80000.
Internships in a global Swedish tech company and largest Swedish independent financial advisor.
710 GMAT
Job offers from several consulting firms (hopefully MBB as well, final round next week) for upcoming fall.
My passion is within tech, so the purpose of my MBA would be to get the foundation and credibility to start my dream tech company.

I feel like all the needed parts are there, but that everything is a bit too weak.
GPA good, but not stellar. Extra-curriculars good but too few. Internships not super impressive. GMAT a bit low. Etc...

What do you think?


Fair chance of making it into interview, just develop more skills such as hobbies etc and softwares in management, as swedish you must have access to lots of resources, use them. Get in contact with HBSguru and I think you'd be good. Just know that HBS is not a deadend, its a start, so many more top US universities are there. Don't shut doors for opportunities.

Fairly good chances. You are what a channel of MBA admissions calls "Gold" school people. MICHIGAN ROSS has a good impact on profile. And Harvard is looking for implicit Leaders so you must ensure that you show your talents in your essays. The essays are important for interview call. Just take a deferred entry one year later instead of two. If you are truly a person born with the quality, you have a fair chance of getting in. My predictions 25%( Very high ).

Your profile is really good wrt your competitors, but Harvard 2+2 is meant for exceptional candidates only. I'll say, prepare intensely for GMAT; if you score good in it(say 730+) then you have a chance. No one can exactly tell that if you gonna make it, as there are very few seats.

Harvard 2+2 Profile Evaluation  [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 30 May 2019, 07:00
Hi all,
I'd like to kindly ask you an evaluation of my profile:
- Male, from western European country, 23 years old.
- B.Sc. with honors and multiple scholarships in industrial engineering. Good engineering school (not at the level of ETH or UK top tier schools but very good nationally and internationally). GPA 3.9 out of 4
- Currently pursuing a 2-year in Industrial Engineering with a focus on Finance (it's very similar to a Business Administration master). GPA is 3.6 or 3.7.
- Currently pursuing an honors program with focus on innovation management.
- Many international experiences: during my university studies I had 4-6 months periods of study in Germany, Netherlands, Spain. Very good schools.
- 5 months internship in tier 2 tech firm as a consultant, 2 months summer internship in a strategy consulting firm (strategy team of a big 4, e.g. Strategy&/Monitor/Parthenon) in the same place where I study and where I am from.
- Founder of a student professional club about tech, president for 2 years of this.
- President of another professional club (1 year).
- GMAT: 720, low IR and AWA though.
- With the school, I am working on a design project for a cultural heritage site.
- Ielts 7.5, but gave it 3 years ago and I believe it has expired.

Career goals: after graduation -> strategy consulting (or tech).
After MBA: tech industry.
Mind that I am not really planning to retake GMAT. Is not great and I could do better. But I hate it and I consider not worth to spend time on it (I took it more than 1 year ago and I should study for at least 2 full weeks to improve it).

What do you think are my chances? I hope they are good since I don't think there are many European applicants. I know also that I lack of volunteering experience, I am a blood donor, I was a little bit involved in local politics and I hope the design project counts as a "volunteering" experience.

Hi elpuntazza,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. Overall, you have a compelling profile. Areas that I would focus on is outlining a clearer career plan, particularly a plan about the two years before commencing MBA program as well as it's relationship with your long-term plan. A few comments below:

Academics: You have strong academics, which is great! Your GMAT is below the class median (740). That said, I agree with you that you should focus your time on submitting a strong application and retaking the IELTS (which has expired) instead of retaking the GMAT. be sure to continue on a strong trajectory in your current program, so there are no issues there.

Experiences: As to your experiences, they look great. I would spend some time outlining a plan of action for the two years before you commence your MBA studies and post/long-term plans. I like that you have initiated clubs and that you've been involved in other groups promoting inclusivity. What are your plans for this summer? Do you have an internship lined up?

I would love to learn more about your profile and see how we can help you present a compelling case for admission. When ready, please reach out to schedule a 30-minute complimentary consultation call.

HBS 2+2 Profile Evaluation Thread  [#permalink]

New post 01 Jul 2019, 12:28
Hello peeps.

Requesting a kind soul to critically evaluate my profile too.

I am a 26 year old (male) Chartered Accountant from India.

On completion of my CA in Jan 2015 I continued working in the Dead Advisory department of a Big 4 for 2 years approx. before moving on to a boutique deal advisory firm where I worked for another 2 years. During my stint at Deal Advisory, I practiced tax and regulatory along while ensuring commercials are not disrupted. Few marquee projects I have handled/worked upon include:

a. Pre-deal IPO structuring of a USD 1.5 Billion dollar Indian company. (Had extensive meetings and discussions with the top management to understand the commercial complexities involved which were dealt later in a tax and regulatory efficient manner) (Note - we head on faced and solved each problem we were able to get our minds on)

b. Deal advisory and structuring of a INR 1100 crore investment (Included negotiations and discussions with two large PEs over a period of 6 months. Provided extensive learning on how to negotiate and effectively communicate on the deal table)

Present stint (since the past 3 months) - working at my family CA firm and also acting as an advisor to a CBSE school. Reason for shifting out of Deal Advisory - the department seems fixed on a province and I donot see myself working solely at M&A transactions after 5 years. Further, at my own firm, I am undertaking audits, other newly incorporated taxes, laws etc. which I believe every Chartered Accountant should have working knowledge of which was missing at Deal Advisory. To add more, acting as an advisor to a school is an eye opener for me as it involves streamlining the operation and strategizing. One key event I have advised and implemented is:

- Helping stablise the transportation facility for students along with the principal and the bus contractor (no. of students, 1100) - student safety being paramount, evaluating assumptions and circumstances to check any flaws in the bus system. Further, presently, reviewing the system on an ongoing basis to detect and solve any flaws.

AIM OF DOING A MBA: Leadership quotient + all around development through a General MBA + Understanding the global context of education and the possible opportunities that may lie ahead in the field of education.

SOCIAL OBJECTIVE: Being able to provide world class education to students of all background.

GMAT score - As per current practice tests, hoping 700+

Target schools - (Research in progress - any help in identifying a school would be appreciated and welcome!)

Class 10: 86%
Class 12: 85.4%
BCom: 83%
CA: Cleared in Jan 2015

Cheers! and thank you in advance!

Hi, My name is Jayati. I am looking forward to hear back on my profile for HBS 2+2.

Background :
Academics : 8.2/0 CGPA
Btech : Information technology
Mtech : Cyber Security
College : Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad (IIIT-A) , Top coding school in India

Reading the Indian Scriptures and philosophy from 12 years of age , got the motivation to help people
Passionate about mental health issues
Also , I started a skilling project for women in the Slum areas of my city with a local NGO , realised I could do more if I started a business and
got interested in Entrepreneurship.
Worked with Reserve Bank of India to develop an idea on Blockchain which eventually I dropped

Started my company at 22 years , building a product on career counselling with AI by matching personality type of candidates with the careers. Motivated by my mental health inclinations. Learn about career psychology and design for the product.
Also working on a product for recruitment platform. Researching in Natural Language processing for developing the product.
Co- founder with my professor and leading a core team of 4 people with 8 interns
Built the team on my own

Want to do MBA eventually because I want to keep working in the startup space, learn about business and meet different people to understand more about different industries to develop products. Eventually would like to be a venture capitalist and work in domain of mental health or environment.

In the essay I want to talk about:
My philosophy background which motivates me to help and serve others.
My own experience in India where culture is a checklist culture - doing things for sake of it instead of following self goals
Being a female founder, there was resistance in terms of lack of opportunity and support from my mentors and professors.
My personal aspirations in terms of figuring out how best I can contribute and my love for startups.

Yet to take the GMAT , expecting around 710

Target schools : Harvard (top) , Stanford, Booth, Kellog, Wharton and IESE
Please let me know what are my chances, thankyou!

Hi JayatiC,

I find your profile really interesting and know there are a plethora of opportunities for you to develop your skills and business. That said, there is a bit of uncertainty (still figuring things out) that comes across in your message, which is ok; however, for a competitive application to a top tier MBA program, you require a bit more clarity of goals and how you intend to use the MBA to propel your business/venture. As to the GMAT, you should aim for a 730+ to be competitive.

I am happy to speak with you further about your goals and how we can help you make the most out of the application process. If interested, please reach out.

Good luck!

Susan

Want to do MBA eventually because I want to keep working in the startup space, learn about business and meet different people to understand more about different industries to develop products. Eventually would like to be a venture capitalist and work in domain of mental health or environment.

In the essay I want to talk about:
My philosophy background which motivates me to help and serve others.
My own experience in India where culture is a checklist culture - doing things for sake of it instead of following self goals
Being a female founder, there was resistance in terms of lack of opportunity and support from my mentors and professors.
My personal aspirations in terms of figuring out how best I can contribute and my love for startups.

Yet to take the GMAT , expecting around 710

Target schools : Harvard (top) , Stanford, Booth, Kellog, Wharton and IESE
Please let me know what are my chances, thankyou!
