I’m a 28 year old female M.D in Nigeria with 4 years in Clinical medicine and Health Insurance where I designed and implemented strategies to improve quality healthcare delivery, improve health coverage in Nigeria. I also found myself creating and implementing strategies to keep the company sustainable during the pandemic. This experience made me fall in love with the idea of consulting - short term goal, while long term- working at an intersection between health, business (strategy) and tech. I am planning to apply next fall- 2023 Round 1. Preparing to take my GMAT January 2023.
My concerns are; 1. my 6 year medical school did not use GPA grading system, Just - Pass/Fail. I can request for a % like top10% of class to be calculated in the transcript but I don’t know if that will work. 2. What GMAT score should I target? 3. Any tips on how i can showcase my analytical quant readiness?
