Harvard 2+2 / Stanford GSB Deferred Chances
Do you think I have a shot for Harvard 2+2 or the Stanford GSB Deferral Program or should I just apply after 2-4 years of work experience?
I am a URM male from a top non-Ivy (Chicago, Duke, Johns Hopkins) with a 3.8 GPA studying history. Work experience includes one summer at a education startup in France, one summer at a mid-tier BB in IBD, and one summer in IB at a top EB (EVR/PJT). My GMAT score is 740. My extracurricular activities mostly relate to education and include volunteering, research, and working with well-recognized non-profits.
Goal is to do two years of IB/Consulting, two years of Teach for America, and then use business school as a platform to do strategy for a fast-growing educational startup.
I am worried that my background in IB is a deal breaker.
Thanks for the advice in advance!
