That GRE is pretty weak. GPA is fine. Are you international or Sri Lankan American? Name brand work experience? What’s the goal? Extracurriculars?

It mostly sounds good, the GRE sticks out in a bad way though.

Okay chance, low GRE and gpa but stem helps and experience is good.

Thanks y’all. Needed a reality check, but think it’s worth applying? Should’ve applied r1 maybe for slightly higher chances :/ Also, their median GRE is 163 in each section so I’m not tooooooo far off

Honestly I’d be lying if I said I knew the answer to that. The only thing I’ll say is that for dual degree programs like that (barring some exceptions) you have to get into each program individually, so I don’t think your score would be looked at in a more positive light.

Some folks here recently said I might have a much higher chance at Yale SOM. Would y’all have any insights on my chances at Sloan r2 given I’m not submitting test scores?

TBH the most concerning thing is your current research role. Not considered to be competitive job for HBS. How much do you make?

Not too worried about that because someone from my org making even lesser made it to HBS two years ago. HBS fries to bring folks from nonprofits for diversity, and my org is a pretty well reputed one. Think it’s the scores that’ll hurt me, but will still submit r2!

They reached out this morning to reconnect. I have 6 yrs experience in MCOL. their inital offer back in July was 165k. would pushing for 180k be over the top?
