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)(21-2)

Ms. Burger King

  • 690 GMAT (43Q, 42V)
  • 3.87 undergraduate degree in international studies and Spanish from Duke University
  • Work experience includes two years at the Burger King Corporation, starting as a management trainee working in marketing analytics for Latin America; quant-heavy role involving forecasting sales and analyzing promotional performance; was promoted first in my class of 30 analysts to marketing manager in Central America; led marketing strategy for 10 countries in region, spending 50% of time in country; led a turnaround plan for the Honduras market resulting in positive EBITDA for the first time in several years; received the VIP award for work there, an honor given to just 3% of employees globally; then left Burger King seven months ago to join a tech startup as director of marketing
  • Extracurricular involvement as university editor of the Duke student newspaper (wrote 2-3 articles per week for 2 years); member of Duke Business Society; recruitment chair of my sorority; did a study-abroad program in Madrid; currently mentor inner-city high school students through LaunchU, the Junior League Chicago (women’s service organization); avid runner, dancer, baker
  • Goal: To transition into global brand management or international business strategy for a multinational company
  • 25-year-old Hispanic female

Odds of Success:

Harvard: 40%
Wharton/Lauder: 40%
Northwestern: 40% to 50%
MIT: 30% to 40%
UCLA: 40% to 50%
Columbia: 40% to 50%

Sandy’s Analysis: What we’ve got here is a 25-year-old Hispanic female with a 690 GMAT that is good enough if they like you. That is something they will wink at if they like you. And there is a double whammy here because you are a Hispanic female. You have a great career. You’ve had a quant-heavy role and were promoted first in a class among 30 analysts in Latin America, with half your time in-country.

Leaving Burger King after two years to join a tech startup as director of marketing is surprising. As we always say with startups, adcoms want to know if it has venture backing or is it your two friends in their mother’s kitchen. What that company does and what you do there is very important to your story. In any case, you have solid goals given your work experience and impressive extras.

I don’t think you are a reach at HBS. With serviceable execution and a powerful recommendation from someone at Burger King, you could make it there, especially if the tech startup is legit and not a joke. You are competing with other URMs and you have a powerful case. If you had a 720 GMAT, you would walk into Harvard. I don’t think the 30-point difference is going to stop you. You have a really good chance there. Everything in your story is real solid and tight, from your living-in-country experience in Latin America to your work in marketing analytics.

I’m not sure why you would want to do the Wharton/Lauder program. My advice: The Lauder thing is like saying, “Forget everything else I told you. What I am really interested in is political science and Latin America.” It’s a nutty idea. I don’t think you have a Lauder profile. On the other hand, you are what Kellogg dreams about. MIT would have an easier time of not getting excited about you because of the GMAT score and because they have a small entering class. UCLA would go for this, and you could never tell at Columbia because they are so protective of their yield. If you want to go to Columbia, you really need to show an interest in the school. I would visit and try to work up a New York angle. Otherwise, you could end up on Columbia’s waitlist.

Bottom line: You have a bright future and you will have it your way.

 

Mr. Big Three

  • 740 GMAT
  • 2.6 GPA (my school hardly distributes a GPA of 3.0)
  • Undergraduate degree in naval architecture and ocean engineering from a top university in Brazil
  • Work experience includes two years in a Big Three management consulting firm across industries, function and geographies; internships at a homeware startup in business intelligence and at a Brazilian yacht shipyard
  • Extracurricular involvement with pro bono consulting for Brazilian entrepreneurs through an accelerator; teaching English in Taiwan; founder and former president of Brazilian Student Association
  • Goal: To transition into a business development position within renewable energy industry, hopefully a renewable energy startup on the West Coast
  • 25-year-old Brazilian male

Odds of Success:

Stanford: 20%
Berkeley: 30% to 40%

Sandy’s Analysis: This is real solid at Berkley if you can explain the low GPA. Do you have access to class standing? That would help schools understand what is going on, even though they claim to know about such things. Also go to some Berkeley events and info sessions and ask them if they are familiar with low GPAs at your school.

Stanford is always tricky and on the surface you do not have any of the do-gooder, save-the-world jive that they look for in males (not sure if you are white, but males who have worked for yacht companies are not likely anything other than white ;-). But on the other hand, they are always looking for strong applicants from Latin America, and Brazil is a favored country.

Your current job as a consultant at a Big Three management consulting firm is real solid and gives you instant credibility.

What is the track record of dudes from your class applying to B-school? As often noted, that is a great metric to begin with. And your goal to transition into a business development position in the renewable energy indsutry is real good if you have any track record to pin this to.

Hey pal, looks like you are California-focused, but explain that GPA and think about HBS. Harvard could work and your odds there are much better than Stanford because they enroll a much larger class.
