Demographics: immigrant, black, Latina, woman, first gen, from low income background. Graduated from top liberal arts college with a psychology major.
Work experience: I’ve led high impact and high visibility projects, will have very strong recommendations from current and former managers.
My why: I have a very strong background in data and precedence on making data driven, actionable recommendations. I want to be on the other side and drive decision making and long term strategy. I still want to remain in data but want to become an executive and be an influential person on the field.
Why only HSB? I want to stay on the East Coast and would only get an MBA from GSB or HSB, mostly because of the networking opportunities and the prestige (I know, not the best reasoning).
Thinking about taking the GRE instead of GMAT, starting to prep now. I think this will be my weakest point because I’m not good with standardized testing.
Not sure if I’m being delusional by trying to get an MBA and only apply to reach schools, would like a reality check pls.
