Meet our MBA Admissions Consultants: Ipshita Jain

Each week, we sit down and get to know one of our MBA Admissions Consultants.

Ipshita-JainNot to brag, but we have an amazing team of people, and there’s more to them than just their top school pedigree or their devilish good looks. When you’re choosing an MBA Admissions consultant, you don’t just want someone in your industry or who went to your dream school. You need an MBA Admissions consultant who will be able to work with you, connect with you, and push you to be your best… and that’s not the same person for everyone. Some people need an empathetic touch; others need a drill sergeant. That’s why we think it’s so important for you to get to know our guys before you get to work.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Admissionado MBA Admissions Consultant Ipshita Jain.

So Ipshita, where are you living these days?
Boston

And your MBA is from…
Dartmouth Tuck

Why did you go for an MBA?
Network, leadership skills and some course work… exactly in that order. It was a good decision and I will do it all over again. It has certainly opened many new doors for me, and I feel I am more empowered to start a company or take a leadership position in a company.

What’s your all-time favorite memory from business school?
Glen-Tuck – the scotch club that used to meet every Wednesday each week. Many other memories are there too, but this space is too little to account for all of them 🙂

What do you like most about being an MBA consultant?
I love hearing about all the amazing things applicants have done. We get to see applicants from around the globe, with a variety of experiences and profiles… the diversity is inspiring.

What’s the COOLEST place you’ve ever been?
Alaska — I was spellbound with so much beauty around me. And Denali was the epitome of my Alaska experience. I think heaven must be close to what Denali is like 🙂

Tell us something surprising about you.
I was in a motorcycle accident when I was 19, when a mid size cargo vehicle passed over me. I didn’t have any pulse for 30 minutes. Doctors found my pulse, but I was in coma for a week after that. It took a year to recover from all the various injuries. But I am all fit and fine now, which is probably no less than a miracle, as many people who witnessed my accident would say.

Two truths and a lie.
I love running.
I dream about cooking good food.
I can never say no to a glass of fine alcohol (wine/scotch/rum).
