关于我

2009年7月份,我给一个老朋友(Simon FT-MBA,2010春季班)为申请MBA而写的Essay提了几点比较关键的修改建议。后来,她成功拿到Simon的Offer。再后来,她建议我做留学DIY咨询方面的工作,并向我介绍了我的第一个客户。最终,我的第一个客户也成功拿到几个TOP16商学院的面试并顺利拿到Duke Fuqua商学院MBA的录取。 本人毕业于上海复旦大学管理学院国际企业管理系,属于商科科班出身并且做过管理工作、有领导经验的人士。

留学参考:Handicapping Your Elite MBA Odds (201607)(20-2)


 BY: JOHN A. BYRNE & SANDY KREISBERG ON JULY 05, 2016

 

 

Mr. Former Marine Captain

 

  • 690 GMAT (46Q, 38V, 6 IR, 6.0 AWA)
  • 3.5 GPA
  • Undergraduate degree in political science from a Southern State School (Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee), with a minor in Russian
  • Work experience includes two years doing analytical work at a political consulting firm after college (data/stats analysis); then joined the Marine Corps for five years, reaching the rank of Captain; consistent top 5% performer and was hand selected for a unique leadership role outside his job; after the military joined a nonprofit consulting/lobbying firm, spending the last year and one-half working to improve veteran’s healthcare and reform the VA
  • Have helped to author legislation, lobbied over 60+ members of the House and Senate, and gone on the road holding events about veterans healthcare reform
  • Extracurricular involvement is heavy as a volunteer with numerous veterans nonprofits and charities; co-founder of an organization that focuses on ending veteran suicide and also work with lots of PTSD victims and exploratory treatments
  • Fluent in English and Spanish, having spent one year on a study abroad program in Spain; also intermediate in Portuguese, Italian, and Russian
  • Goal: Healthcare management
  • 28-year-old white male

Odds of Success:

Harvard: 30%+
Chicago: 40%+
Northwestern: 40%+
Dartmouth: 40%+
Virginia: 50%+

Sandy’s Analysis: Well, there’s lots to like about your military career and jobs around it. In fact, this is beginning to smell like a run for office. You might look into Harvard’s Kennedy School as well, you’d be IN there in a flash.

HBS may go for this. Your stats are admissible and you have a solid leadership story. Healthcare management is a good goal for you. That puts it all together, and you can start with two years at McKinsey post-MBA or some specialist healthcare consulting group.

You could write the essay about how your extracurricular involvement and x y z in service gave you a 360-degree perspective about how to approach complex problems, something you’d like to do post-grad as a consultant and a leader of an organization with many demands on it–business, technology, prima donna docs and human element in some basic way, like HC.

Other schools including, Booth, Kellogg, Tuck and Darden are also good calls, They tilt towards guys like you, and I can see you as a real happy camper at Tuck if HBS does not work out. You are their kind of reconstituted “cracker”—a good ol’ Southern boy who gets Northern, with a secular religion but who still has charm and manners.

 

Mr. Lawyer

 

  • 720 GMAT (45Q, 45V)
  • 2.9 GPA
  • Undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from a good but not elite public university (think Penn St, SUNY, Va Tech, Ohio St, Maryland, Rutgers)
  • 2.9 GPA Law School
  • Law degree from a school ranked between 50 and 100 by U.S. News
  • Work experience includes 10 years of experieince as a patent attorney, in patent law boutiques, in-house, and two stints as a solo practioner
  • “My work experience has included some very high profile clients and matters, but not with major law firms. My career as ventured more towards working with emerging software companies, and I am interested in moving towards operations and finance as opposed to the legal aspects of these entities”
  • Recommendations will be written by two partners at former law firm employers, including the CEO of a regional startup accelerator
  • Extracurricular involvement in college as a member of student government and fraternity president, as well as various other activities; also very active in bar associations and local civic groups
  • Goals: Technology entreprenuership and venture Investing
  • 36-year-old Caucasian male

Odds of Success:

Georgetown: 40% to 50%
Carnegie Mellon: 30% to 40%
Cornell: 30%
Virginia: 40%
Texas: 40% to 50%
UCLA: 40%

Sandy’s Analysis: This is classic part time or EMBA territory. My guess is, you know that, but I just need to get that down here. There is a tricky dynamic going on in this story: The more you make a case for going to a full-time program because you want to do something different and switch careers, the more it makes your legal career look as if it is something you are fleeing. But a legal career, especially in patents and tech, are one of the strengths of your profile. Anyway, you know what the real score is, but I’d try to make this move look like something that builds out on your experience and is not a 180 degree turn. That is why I also question your goal of working in either entrepreneurship or venture investing. Those are kinda dreamy jobs.

Well, you’d add a lot to any class you would join, given your experience and expertise in patents, electrical engineering, and just being around. I would cast myself as someone interested in working in business development for tech companies or even some expanded role in start-ups (meaning in your case, big, established start-ups that sometimes have lawyers wear more than one hat).

“Technology Entreprenuership and Venture Investing?” I’d stay away from entreprenuership as an idea. It could signal that you are going out on your own again, something B-schools do not favor vs. working for an established outfit.

Your school choices are realistic, although I don’t have a real feel for this because I don’t deal with hundreds of applications from those schools.

One stat worth noting, as you cast down list of schools in the P&Q ranking is the admit rate at schools you target:

Georgetown—43.0%
Tepper—30.6%
Cornell—32.4%
Darden—27.8%
Texas—29.7%
UCLA—19.8%

Not sure why GT is so high, anyone?

Also note that the Duke admit rate is 23% but the enrollment of its full-time MBA students is a real plus at 894, which is big once you filter out schools in four digits: HBS, Chi, Penn, Kellogg, and Columbia (you might try Kellogg on that list, they are more likely to admit an outlier in terms of age, etc than the others).

The GMAT in your case is something of a life saver, since it is at or above average scores at most of your target places. On the more safe side, but still not “safe”, you might look at Vanderbilt and Notre Dame.
