Hi there!

I believe my profile is good enough for Stanford MSx and MIT SF, but I am not sure about 2-year programs, mainly because of 12+ years of work experience and age. Could you please evaluate my profile for HBS, GSB and Haas?

I am a 30-year old (turning 31 in May) Asian male (with Russian passport), currently working as a Vice Rector (in the US you call it Vice Chancellor or Vice President) in the major Russian university. Previously worked as a CIO at the large regional power utility company. A board member in the leading local techno park and venture fund. A lot of ECA and other accomplishments. Also, created a top selling survival video game (available on Steam).

Education: Specialist's degree (5-year full time) in Computer Science from the average Russian university. GPA: 3.74 out of 4.0. Officially enrolled at the age of 13, being the youngest student in the university records, and probably, one of the youngest students in Russian history. Was appointed as a professor there at the age of 18.

GMAT: expected to be somewhere between 700 and 720.

IELTS: 8.0.

Thanks!

Hi there,

Thanks for sharing your background with us. While we wait upon official scores for your GMAT, should you score on the high range of your estimate, I think Stanford MSx and MIT SF make sense for you solely based on your academic and professional background. Other aspects we should consider include your community involvement as well as your overarching goals. It's important to think through your vision for why these programs are important to you and what you hope to achieve upon graduation.

Both HBS and GSB will be rather tough given they prefer slightly younger applicants, however if you have a strong case as to why you think those particular schools make sense for you, we can certainly consider them. You may want to consider the Haas part-time program as that is a good option for someone with your level of experience.

Would love to hear more about your journey thus far. If you think it's easier to discuss over a call, feel free to sign up for a free consultation below. In the meantime, take a look at some of our free resources for other tops on how to prepare between now and application time. Best of luck!
