Your GMAT score is impressive, and whilst we have had clients admitted to Stanford with much lower GMAT score, Stanford generally tends to be very selective. This does not mean that you do not stand a chance, however, I suggest you additionally look into programs of a similar stature, maybe with higher acceptance rates such as Duke Fuqua, Michigan Ross and Kellogg.

If you are interested in the health field, Kellog have what they call a “healthcare pathway” and Michigan Ross have a “healthcare management concentration”. Other schools also carry similar programs and specializations.

You should also checkout our [free MBA chances estimation calculator[]. It is a great tool for those who are unsure of their options.


Good luck
Georgia



Yale's average GMAT score is around 727, Sloan's is 722, Stern's is 714 and Columbia's is 724. So you do have a chance of acceptance. However, it does depend on all the other aspects of your application. These programs also seem to have similar acceptance rates to the schools that I mentioned earlier, Duke Fuqua, Michigan Ross and Kellogg.

Again, our free MBA chances estimation calculator is great. It might be worth spending some time using it to estimate your acceptance chances.

I am wondering if I should retake my GMAT

I got a 710 (90th percentile) but my quant score is a 47 (61st Percentile)

My GPA is a 4.9/5.0 for both my bachelors and my masters in computer science and engineering from MIT.

I would be applying 2+2 to HBS/Stanford GSB

Hi gsbdreamer, HBS really likes a 49 for quant and I do believe it would benefit you to retake if you feel you could bump it to that number. However, your background does assure them you can succeed in the classroom. So I''m afraid I can't give you an accurate responses from this information; we would need to look at your citizenship/diversity factors to look at what a competitive score would be for your profile group.

If you are overrepresented, without question, retake. AND..make sure to create space on your schedule to do a bang up job on the applications: a good GMAT is wholly insufficient to get an invite to these schools, they require a great depth of introspection to create compelling content. I have an HBS 2+2 profile evaluation thread in the HBS forum if you would like a deeper assessment.

Cheers, Farrell

Hello to all,
I am a businessman, I recently started my business. I develop software for mobile phones, prompted me toTimur Artemyev and the blog about himwestminsterworld.com/amazon-pulled-some-hoverboards-in-the-uk-and-the-us/. This is a businessman who started his business from scratch, and now in many countries he is called a good person and businessman. You must always believe in yourself, you must be able to set goals and motivate yourself with something if you want to succeed. So I began to open my business. That was my story, I hope that I also encouraged everyone to act.

Hi,

How about checking other programs such as the Sloan fellows program (LBS, MIT), Stanford MSx and iBear, which have been designed for senior managers like you. At ISB, they might push you to join the PGP Pro.

Hi everyone,

Looking forward to reading your thoughts!

Applying to:
• Harvard | Stanford GSB | Wharton

Profile:
• 24 year old Indian male.
• Top Engineering college (and consistently top 10 globally in overall rankings) in the UK (integrated masters: Bachelors + Masters in 4 years. This is common in the UK). Masters in Economics & Finance at Oxford/Cambridge.
• Top 20% of my class at Engineering school (First Class Honours - equivalent to 3.8+ GPA)
• GMAT 750 (Q50V41)
• Summer internships: 1 in the technology division of an American bank; 1 on the the trading floor of a bulge bracket investment bank. Both in London.
• Will be joining Bain London office as a pre-MBA hire. (SO WILL APPLY TO HSW IN 2-3 YEARS)

Extracurriculars:
• Took a year off before starting work at Bain London to go climb some of the highest mountains across the Himalayas and Andes (not trekking - actual climbing from bottom to the top). Here, I climbed with and met strangers from all over the world (America, Canada, Nepal, UK, Argentina, Brazil). I was trained by the Indian Army Mountaineering team for a month long course at Asia's #1 mountaineering institute where I received an 'A' grade (top of my class). Also, one of the youngest Indian's to climb the highest mountain outside Asia and was selected as the youngest member of a joint Indian-Canadian expedition to Mt. Everest until I got injured during training prior to the climb and had to pull out.

• Recently co-founded a social venture which provides a platform to pair students looking for help with jobs/college admissions with mentors in universities/jobs they want in exchange for donations to charity. Have raised $20,000 for mental health & education charities.

• Additionally, I mentored 15+ URM college applicants from Europe, India, & the US for undergraduate college admissions & internships in finance/consulting. Over 90% of them received offers to top 5 UK universities, & their top-choice internships.

• Board member (youngest) of a non-profit that offers free STEM education to 100,000+ young people that were denied access to education due to war, poverty, disability or gender.

Awards & Honours:
• Won 3-4 "Young leader" type awards. One of them was for being in the top 100 future leaders from British universities (100 out of 1000+ nominations UK wide); Another was Top 100 future UK leaders out of 7000+ nominations from over 150 UK colleges.

Post-MBA goal: Return to Bain for 2 years then move into VC analysing investments in the EdTech space in India.

Other factors: I've applied twice for the 2+2/Stanford Deferred programs unsuccessfully (no interviews). Once in my final year of undergrad, once right after that during my 1-year masters. Will this go against me in 2-3 years when I apply as a regular applicant?

Thank you for your time. :)

I wish to apply for the Stanford-Dhirubhau Ambani Fellowship for MBA. I haven't attempted GMAT yet and I'm aiming for a shot at it by August 2019.

Profile:
Indian Female, 22

Academic Background:
Class 10- 10 CGPA (~95%)
Class 12- 92%
Bachelor of Science (Honours) Botany- 8.811 CGPA (on a scale of 10), Ramjas College, University of Delhi
Master of Science in Biotechnology (Currently pursuing; to graduate in May 2020)- 9 CGPA (First Year) (on a scale of 9), South Asian University (set up by SAARC)

Extracurriculars:
I've been an active participant in debates, drawing and painting competitions, essay writing competitions and MUNs at school and college level. I've won several competitions at both school, college and district levels.
I've good ranks and consistently scored First Division in various national Olympiads.
I've actively taken part in sports at both school and college level and won several team sports events, namely Volleyball, Cricket and Table Tennis.
I've been a winner at the MP National Science Congress.
I had been a member of the Literary Society of my college.
I've also actively contributed towards the designing of the logo of the Faculty of Life Sciences and Biotechnology, South Asian University and have volunteered in the Designing Team for the Abstracts Book for the South Asian Biotechnology Conference, 2019.
Some of the awards I've received are:
-Best Student Award, Ramjas College, University of Delhi
-Batch Topper, Botany, Ramjas College, University of Delhi
-Winner, MP National Science Congress, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh
-State Topper, National Science Olympiad

Apart from this, I've contributed articles for various magazines such as the college hostel magazine, Chadamama, Berlin ArtParasites and The Scribbled Stories. I've also exhibited my artworks at the college's cultural fest and also curated the art exhibition.

Work Experience: None

Career Goals:
I'm looking forward to a career in advertising and marketing post MBA.
I also look forward to investing the knowledge, experience and networking I gain from my MBA degree in trying to bring about reforms in public education in my country. Public schools in India are sadly not able to deliver what is expected out of them. I firmly believe we not only need efficient educators and enthusiastic people on boards, we also need managers. We need people with a vision, with tremendous leadership skills who are able to deliver, to steer the ship of public education towards the land it has been seeking since a long time. And I want to be a part of that change, a part of the revolution I dream of in the public education system. I acknowledge the fact that I've been privileged enough to receive education from the top colleges of the country and I wish to give back to the society with my MBA degree by contributing towards the improvement of the education sector.

I'd be grateful if you evaluate my profile and leave a comment. Thank you!

Hi! What’re my chances for Stanford, Harvard or MIT?

Hi there,

Could you help me evaluate whether I should retake a 710 GMAT, and also my chances for the top schools / schools on my list?

Thank you!

Work exp: 3.5 years at finance/tech company, ended up doing business development work, promoted twice and making $140K/year by end. Took new job / large pay cut to work for 1.5 years (by time of application) at a nonprofit startup that does civic engagement work. The nonprofit has some solid branding (funded by some top Silicon Valley founders / closely affiliated with a top 5 US university) but is pretty small and new.

Extracurriculars: Primarily tutoring/mentor ship, civic engagement (local political club). Spent 6 months in DC on work rotation doing government relations work.

Undergrad major school: top 3 US undergrad (HPYS)

Asian Female

Gmat score + breakdown: 44V (98%), 44Q (50%). 710 total.

Undergrad GPA: 3.4

In short- my scores are not good, but I have generally performed strongly in the workplace and feel I could get strong rec letters proving my out-of-classroom skills.

Goal of MBA: Network, and a clear goal to start my own civic service-oriented company / nonprofit one day. As far as immediately out of MBA- would like to explore other options for social impact work (potentially civic tech), but the exact form is TBD.

Target schools (evolving list): Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Yale, Chicago, Berkeley

Thanks for reaching out,

It is difficult to evaluate your profile without a GMAT score. However, if you are set on Stanford, the average GMAT for their MBA program is usually around 740. Other schools with fantastic finance options are Harvard, Chicago Booth and Wharton. All whose average GMAT scores are around 10 points lower than Stanford's. However, in the past we have helped applicants with GMAT scores of 620 get into Stanford, so GMAT score is not the most important if the rest of your application is outstanding.

If it is the media field that you are interested in, I would highly suggest applying to NYU Stern. Stern offers an MBA specialization in Entertainment, Media and Technology.

Your work experience is impressive and will definitely help enhance your application.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any more questions,

Georgia

ugasra I'm very optimistic!! interesting stuff, relatively underrepresented, I have a client from Paraguay at GSB right now with good but less impressive credentials. Do you have an interesting story for the main essay? If you are female even better. From what I see so far, go for it.
