Hi guys! Would love to hear your thoughts on my profile. I applied R2 to all schools and have heard back from all but 2 regarding interviews. I am currently in consulting with the federal government (IT Business Analyst role) but am hoping to get my MBA and pivot into a Public Service/Federal Government role - specifically a Fellowship Program that requires a higher education degree. I plan on pivoting from an IT position to a healthcare one as well. I have extensive volunteering experience - graduated HS with the most service hours, went to an undergrad program from public affairs, led the Student Government as VP, led a volunteer trip to another country in college, and volunteered-post college with a nonprofit organization where I led the DE&I team. After I applied, I received a part-time job offer with the foundation I was volunteering at and the position is to lead and manage the volunteer network. Also, after applying, I took the GRE again and my score went from the reported 319 to 323 - 167 Q, 156 V (Superscore: 326 - 167 Q, 159 V). I haven't heard back from my top choice but really hoping there is still a chance!
