Admission? Profile Evaluation [#permalink]
16 Jan 2011, 21:25
I was interested in purchasing one of your multi-school packages, as I am planning on applying to several U.S. business schools for admission in the autumn of 2012. Vital info is as follows:
Nationality: British (born in Libya, raised in England)
Age: 24 (Will be 25 by matriculation in 2012)
Undergraduate Education: University of Leeds (One year exchange at University of Lund, Sweden)
Degree and Result: BSc (hons) Economics (international), Second Upper Class (2.1)
Work experience: Will have 2 years of experience by matriculation at Standard Chartered Bank (Dubai office), in the Wholesale Banking Graduate Rotation Program, where I have completed rotations in Financial Markets, Investment Banking, and Private Equity.
Entrepreneurial Experience: While at University co-established, opened a small Italian restaurant, Pizza Milano. Went on to open one more, and have subsequently sold both on.
Extracurricular Activities: Co-founded the International Literacy Foundation in 2010, an international not-for-profit organization focused on literacy promotion. Have completed projects in Canada, Pakistan, and Kenya (with a view to a few more in China, Nigeria and Lebanon) thus far which have revolved around refurbishing, renovating, and expanding libraries at orphanages and insufficiently funded schools. Additional extracurricular activities include volunteering for various causes, such as women’s foundations and the Dubai marathon.
An avid sportsman, I have also represented Liverpool and NW England at field hockey as well as representing my university and Leeds University Business school in addition to being active as an undergrad in the finance and business clubs.
Post-MBA Career Goals:
(Short-term): Private Equity
(Long-term): working for a medium sized to large NGO in Europe.
Essentially, I was wondering what my chances were of admission to Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, and Columbia are?
