Hej pa dig!

I agree, while reading your profile my two largest concerns were the lack of extracurrics and the academic record.

I feel that your international background helps provide another dimension to your application. In some ways, this helps counterbalance the lack of extracurrics by showing your knowledge and appreciation of different cultures.

Not to pry, but it would help to know more about your major and your undergrad institution.

I am not really sure how you should present yourself in the application. Since you are a US citizen some schools will probably automatically include you in the domestic group. Other schools have begun to classify dual nationals separately. Either way, I feel it is important to show how your understanding of both cultures enhances your abilities to understand and interact with others in cross-Atlantic transactions.

Regarding your porfolio- I would strongly consider adding Wharton and Chicago. Darden is a fine GM school but I would not consider it to have a very strong name in Scand. or Europe in general (others are welcome to differ on this point).

Dukes,

I'm a fellow Swede who's now a permanent resident in the U.S. Have the same problem as you with not stellar undergrad grades and somewhat weak extracurriculars. Like Hjort said, I hope to bridge those weaknesses by highlighting international experiences and achievements.
