Hi Paul,

Requesting a review of my profile - thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Asian American female, age 27 at matriculation
GMAT: 720, 95% verbal, 77% quant, taken 2x in 2009

Work Experience
-1/2 year in investment banking - then the markets blew up
-almost 2 years in HR consulting for a boutique firm
-laid off / freelanced for 6 months
-now in a VC-backed health care firm doing sales/marketing/finance, direct revenue generation responsibility. Will have 2+ years here by matriculation

-Top 10 liberal arts school, Poli Sci major, 3.85 GPA
-3 accounting classes, 3-4 econ/finance classes

Extracurricular Activities
-on board for college's alumni committee
-small side business in consulting/blogging/writing*
-Blog manager for a nonprofit organization
*I'm actually not sure how much I should write about my blog activities - as I mostly work and blog under a nom de plume . :wink: But I have done freelance for some good online publications and I have gotten recognition from WSJ, MSN Money, etc. for the blog. It is something I spend 10 hours+ a week on.

Target programs
Tuck, Georgetown, Duke, Darden, Cornell, Ross, UNC?

Career Goals
-Interested in either health care consulting (probably more on the provider side than the pharma side) and/or business development - negotiate deals, work in acquisitions of assets for a company. Interested in rotational programs. I definitely need more articulation here.

I feel that since I have jumped around so much, I really need a coherent "story" to emphasis why MBA now is the right step and why I NEED an MBA for the next step in my career.

Do you think I have realistic schools? Thanks for the input!
