I’m a geothermal engineer with no business background and 2 years of work experience. My GPA is very high and my first GMAT practice test was a 680. I think I can hit the mid 700s with some more study time. I’m not quite sure what I want to do with my MBA, but I’m definitely bored right now.
I don’t have leadership experience now, but I was president of my sorority and I am now pretty active in my church.
Do I have a chance at a top business school like Harvard or Stanford?
Hi and thanks for your inquiry and kind compliment.
I wouldn’t proceed any further until you have a much better understanding of your post-MBA career options. Even if we could help you gain admission to Harvard or Stanford right now (I don’t have enough information here to accurately gauge those chances anyway), why do that if it’s possible you could be similarly discontent with your next career path?
Please don’t hesitate to call us at the number below. We’re happy to talk to you and discuss your current situation and help ensure the MBA is right for you before continuing down the MBA applicant path.
I got rejected at a top school after an alumni interview that didn’t go very well. Do you think I can reapply or do you think my chances there are doomed and I should apply elsewhere?
Hi and thanks for your inquiry.
I don’t have a lot to go off of here, but assuming you didn’t raise any egregious red flags, it shouldn’t impact your chances as a reapplicant. Feel free to call me to discuss this directly and off line.
