Who gets into Stanford GSB?
So I'm feeling discouraged after learning that a mentor of mine was rejected from Stanford GSB. He did 2 years of MBB consulting (tech-focused), 2 years of PE at a MF (but was not a finance undergrad), had a great gmat/gpa, has a unique background, and is well-rounded.
He got into wharton, but was rejected from HBS and GSB.
I'm particularly interested in GSB given its small class size. How the hell do you make it as one of the 5% to get in? A large portion of their class consists of ppl with PE/banking/consulting backgrounds, so I'm wondering what differentiated those that broke in.
