Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out - GREAT profile! Your background - GMAT score, Extracurriculars and current employment - seem like they are all on the right track for a top 10-25 MBA program. I also appreciate your clear articulation of what your strengths – ambition, leadership, goal-driven – these are all great qualities for an MBA program.

My biggest feedback to you would be to create a highly compelling story that shows a clear rationale for why you are looking to attain an MBA. Because you are part of a highly competitive pool of MBA applicants, you want to do everything you can to stand out. I would make sure your story includes a cohesive narrative of 1) who you are, your passion, and your goals, 2) why you are qualified for a top 10-25 MBA program and 3) why an MBA is essential to reach your goals. Having a clear narrative of why you need an MBA at this moment of your life will make your application successful, and show the strong need for an MBA while also showcasing your fit with top programs.

If you'd like to chat live about your profile and some of the questions you have, feel free to email me at
