From my research and experience, that may be limited, I think B-schools are risk-adverse. They would rather take a boring person with a solid application than a potentially amazing candidate with a weaker application.

In your situation, if I were in the admissions committee, my concern would be whether you can demonstrate your leadership qualities.
You mentioned communication and people skills. Can you prove it? Did you negotiate a cease-fire, or a billion dollar deal, or a hostage situation?
You mentioned international exposure. This would mean more than flying though. What I would look for is proof of how travel has changed you. Myself, I have travelled to over 30 countries, so I can recognise a fellow traveller by their "world view".
No start up experience wouldnt bother me, as there are plenty of people who don't want to start a business. But if you are going to say you want to, I would rather you actually have started one. Failing or succeeding doesnt matter, as long as you try.

In summary, your challenge will be to convince the committee that you are a leader, you have made an impact on people, on companies, on lives. I wish you the best of luck, but be aware of your weaknesses:
- sounds like you do call centre at microsoft. Negative.
- short experience: how could you possibly have made an impact within 2 yrs (which is when you submit your application).
- Female is good, gmat is "goodish", indian isnt (because indian applicants are very good!)
- Dont really know your educational background, but if your from IT it could be a negative.

Good luck!

I don't agree with Jasonc1111. Yes, your work experience is on the lower side but overall your profile is competitive. An MBA application is never a no brainer but I believe you have good chances if you are able to construct a believable story which demonstrates the impact that you had at or outside of work.

You also have enough time to write compelling essays and make sure to have outstanding recommendation. Best luck!

Thank you for your detailed post. I have a couple follow up questions:

1) What type of work do you do specifically at Microsoft?
2) What school did you go to for undergraduate?

Your stats and experiences are pretty good. Depending on your role (including promotion, leadership experience, rating at work), you may have a good profile to apply this year. An additional year of experience would help you but if you are a leader at work you could definitely apply now. I agree that you don't need startup experience.

Reach out if you want to chat or if you want further assistance with your applications.

Best,
Scott

Hi Nandita,

Having good stats is a fine start, but B-school admission rely on several factors out of which the main ones are quality of your work experience, your personality, perspectives and what you can contribute to the business schools.

Since you have lesser than average work experience, you will have to show them, through your resume, essays and recos that you are a young rockstar. That's all I can tell you on a high level.

If you want more specific feedback, please feel free to sign up for a free consultation (link below). As an Indian MBA student and coach, I have personally gone through the process and can guide you on the same :)

Good luck!

Hi all,

I am applying to the part time Weekend program at Kellogg, and would love to get feedback on what my chances are. While I would love to go full-time, the opportunity cost is too high considering I am married and am the sole income provider. I have 6 years of experience in ecommerce, retail, CPG.

Age: 29, Asian American
Undergrad: Chemical engineering at small private STEM school in Northeast
GPA: 3.1 (bad GPA freshman year, upward progression after 1st year)
Work: 6.5 years work experience, with clear progression in scope. Experience primarily in retail, ecommerce, consumer goods, including 2 years working at Amazon, and most recently a new position as a senior manager (ecommerce/strategy) at a large CPG. Am currently hiring for direct reports, so will have direct management experience soon.
Goal: Stay within CPG, but move into Brand Management or Product Management. Longer term to move into a GM role over a business, or consulting in CPG/Retail industry
GMAT: Just started studying so no official score yet. I took a prelim practice exam with zero prep and scored 620, so with studying and prep it should be realistic for me score around 670-680.

Do I have a shot at getting in?

Thanks in advance!

You should be in good shape if you can creep that GMAT up higher, you have nice work experience with your GPA being your main red flag so double down on the GMAT and you should have a shot

Nationality: Indian
Age: 27
Undergraduate Qualification: Bachelor in Commerce(3 year course with a GPA of 3.4)
Masters Qualification: Masters in Global Business (16 month program in Singapore and Dubai. Unfortunately, my GPA here is extremely low: 2.5 though I took a number of challenging courses)

Work experience: 3.5 years, all of it in market research. Of the 3.5 years, 2.5 years were in the Middle East and a year in India

Do you think I stand a realistic chance and it's worth applying?

Thanks in advance!

I would take a stab at applying, your obvious challenge is your GPA but your GMAT score will be well above the avg at the PT program so this will help. Also, the PT admissions team tends to be flexible and work a bit more with imperfect candidates. I would def find some time to chat with them and express your interest

Thank you for your response.

I was just wondering about my GPA. While my Masters GPA is low, I do have a decent GPA (3.5) in my undergraduate program which was a 3 year program. Won't that also be considered, and if so, could it off-set my poor GPA in my Masters?

Hi All,
So the headline is Booth- but here you say Kellogg! And we are on the Kellogg wall... so I'm going to go with Kellogg for now...
Please evaluate my profile as an international applicant for the MBA program at Kellogg So I'm not sure if you are talking about full or part-time program. The 730 GMAT is worthy of consideration- your challenges are the previous masters- need to explain why you need another one-- and also the gpa although your ug grades are not too far off. I think a lot of it is HOW you tell your story and if you can present some unique aspects. The market research angle is not seen often and that could be very compelling especially if you are specific about marketing programs at Kellogg. To do a free consult with us where we can go into your specifics in more detail- use this link:
https://stratusprep.com/free-consult/

Certainly you won't get in if you don't apply! But I do think you could benefit from some counseling as you have some areas you will need to strategize about to present your best application.

Hello everyone. First time poster and MBA hopeful here wondering if I am on the right track. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I'm a 27 year old male US national. I went to a top 40 LAC where I studied international relations/minor in Japanese language. UGPA: 3.4 GMAT: 720 (first try). Extracurricular activities during college included: publicist for university television network, radio DJ host, staff writer for school newspaper, tutor/mentor to elementary kids in the neighborhood, recreational rugby, marketing intern at an online feminist magazine, and communications/public relations intern at UNICEF.

Post college, I spent a year working odd jobs which included bartending, painting homes, working as an SAT tutor, working at a preschool, waiting tables and volunteering at a local juvenile court working as a child rights advocate. This was a very eye opening and important year as I feel like I grew a lot figuring things out and getting my life in order. Then I spent a year abroad in Turkey via a Fulbright Scholarship. After that, I got my Master's degree at Johns Hopkins SAIS where I studied IR and international econ. During this time, I worked as a communications manager at a research institution and a consultant at the World Bank (2+ current job) doing external/internal communications work. I also self illustrated, wrote, marketed, and published a children's picture book that has been doing pretty well.

Career goals: marketing/product management in tech, brand strategy/management, or stay in my field of development and do non-profit management

Thank you!

Hi

You have a great profile there. Our thoughts:

- Your overall story, experience, and scholarships should make you a good candidate. Your GMAT and GPA are well within range for Kellogg too, and your work experience is quite differentiated.
- The year you spent in myriad roles post college will help, not by way of work experience, but simply by way of life experience. This is interesting learning and you can include this in your essays to show how you did not settle till you found your path.
- A move to brand management or product management at this stage though may be a little iffy because these are areas in which you have little expertise or experience (judging only from what you posted). Would recommend you stay the consulting path instead and make a case for a more globally oriented/larger role in international development.
- Overall, we feel that if you can put in a decent application you should have an excellent chance at Kellogg!

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Thanks for sharing your profile. I would say your stats are a little low for Kellogg as you are below the avg for both schools. I would recommend improving your GMAT score if possible if you want to improve your chances
