So nice to see that you’ve done your research and narrowed down your choices. Based on the limited information you have provided, it's a little tough to assess your overall profile. Once you take the GMAT, we’ll have a clearer picture of where you stand in your very competitive demographic and will be able to dig deeper.

One major determinant of your chances of success is your ability to convey your soft skills like leadership and teamwork. You’ll also need a strong recommendation letter that shows the adcom that you perform head and shoulders above the rest of your peer group.

Most importantly, your short- and long-term career goals should be ambitious but achievable. These goals should somehow connect to what you have accomplished already and to your MBA journey. (Small accomplishments are just fine as long as they are meaningful to you!)

Ultimately, we want to make sure that you have differentiated yourself from the rest of the applicant pool by sharing compelling stories that showcase your leadership potential, teamwork ability, creativity, resourcefulness, global perspective, …you catch my drift.

Hopefully this gets your started thinking about how to frame your achievements. Feel free to share additional background, your goals, or any other specific questions I can help with!

Cheers,

Stefanie
