Admission? Profile Evaluation [#permalink] New post 16 Jan 2011, 21:25
Hey!

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)


GMAT: 700


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?

Based upon the information you've shared, you will be a strong candidate for your target schools. Creating a strong application package, which is essentially your personal marketing package, is key. Also, be sure to take any opportunities to visit campuses and network with alumni and/or current students. If you are interested in a Veritas mult-school package then you should contact the office to discuss your options (http://www.veritasprep.com/info-menu/contact-us/).

Thats great. Thanks for getting back to me.

When you say i am competitive, how competitive am i? what are my chances, realistically of getting a HBS offer letter?

Would you recommend i take the GMAT again? would it look bad if took it again (would be my third time). For example if i did it again and got 710 would that be worth it? what about if i did it again and got 690 for example? how would that look to say HBS or Wharton??


Thanks you,

Mt11
