Hi everyone,

As an undergraduate senior, I'm considering applying to deferred admissions MBA programs in 2018, specifically the programs at Stanford and Harvard (2+2). I would appreciate any thoughts/advice/recommendations!

GMAT: Estimating 710-730

Work Experience:

Internship working on a supply chain project in Indias leading watch manufacturing firm. ( 6 weeks) // improved cycle-time efficiency.
Summer internship as research intern in Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad(IIMA)(It is one of the best B-School In India) (2 Months)

Other points

Financial Inclinations:

Am a Level 1 Candidate for CFA and am writing it in June of this year.

Technical/ Outside college organizational points:
I also have worked on a lot of technical projects and won a few college fest competitions.
My dad is a businessman and owns a small manufacturing plant for plastic bottles and I work with him during my off time.

Post MBA aspirations,
Currently Got placed in a Tier-2 Consulting firm. Was planning to go for Impact Investing.

Do you think there is anything key missing? What would help my application? I would really appreciate any insights or advice.

Thank you!

Kghp Thanks for sharing your profile, breaking into the 2+2 program is really tough for all candidates and especially so for candidates coming from your competitive demographic. Your profile is solid, nothing here that will have you stand out however I would focus on getting to at least a 730 before taking a shot at these programs given how competitive your applicant pool is. Your story will have to be exceptional for you to breakthrough at these programs
