Below is a summary of my profile. I elaborated a bit since my situation is bit complicated. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated!

Gender: Female

Nationality: Korean

Age: 23 (25 at matriculation - planning to apply for Fall 2011 admit)

Undergrad GPA: 3.04 at CMU. I was an architeture major for 3 years, switched to a interdisciplinary program (somewhat unique to CMU- basically a self developed combo of arts and humanities) my last year. I had 2 very rough semesters (one in my 1st yr, one in my 2nd) one of which was probably just a lack of maturity, and the second was influenced by a personal tragedy. the courses i did poorly in were design classes (not really relevant to MBA), and I made the deans list of my school my third year, so I did well in my last two years, am i am hoping i can address the 2 bad semesters in my optional essay.

GMAT: (Q47 V40) 710

Work Experience: 1+ years (should be over 2.5 by matriculation) at a small IT firm. I was promoted 3 times within a year. I actually began in a mainly administrative person (had difficulty finding a job when i graduated in 2008 right before the market crash and was unsure of what i wanted to do at the time) and am now the accounting manager. It is a bit long to explain because there are actually three companies (same owners) that share the same office, so i do work for all three companies at varying levels, and i have additional duties besides accounting that i undertake as well that involve working with pretty much all of the different departments (tech, sales, legal, etc). My concern is that since it is a very small company (less than 15 employees) its difficult to demonstrate much leadership experience, as the corporate ladder is very short.

Extra curricular activities: none at present worth mentioning, but several in undergrad, including leadership positions in a variety of student groups and volunteer experience

Future goals/ why i want an MBA: I have no background in business, have never taken any business classes, and as my undergrad degree is pretty irrelevent, i feel an MBA would provide the foundation that i need to progress. Given my design/creative background, i would like to work in a creative field/industry, but am no longer interested in a creative/design function, if that makes sense. I would like to focus on marketing, with a job in product management or product development to start.

Thank you!

GPA: 4.0/4.3 from an Ivy League school
GMAT: haven't taken yet, but expecting something like 750
Work experience: 2 years
Extracurriculars in school:
-on the board of one of the school's honor societies
-tutored math, physics and chemistry for years

I don't have very long work history, nor do I have strong recommendations. What are my chances of getting into schools like Harvard, Warton, Stanford and Sloan?

Thanks so much for answering !!

Hi, would love any professional feedback I can get on my profile.

-I'm 27 yr old white male from the US
-Attended Cornell/Columbia/Brown/Penn and had 3.5 in History & Chinese Language
-720 GMAT, skewed towards verbal with I believe 98th verbal and 77th quant (roughly)
-Post grad 6 months in London working for Tishman Speyer (top real estate developer)
-Moved to Shanghai afterword and spend ~3.75 yrs in real estate private equity (small but reputable firm, partners include former goldman, carlyle, etc.)
-Moved to the middle east and have been here ~1 yr working at a top sovereign wealth fund (leading international player), covering asia including aus, japan, china, hk, etc... substantial international travel throughout region, high comp, generally very good / high exposure type job

-perceived weaknesses: few EC's in college (though i was involved, no positions, etc.), low quant on GMAT and non-quant UG major (though theoretically this is mitigated somewhat by the fact that I build financial models all day and work in high finance so am clearly okay on math), GPA not an eyesore but nothing great either

-perceived strengths: ivy league graduate, currently work at renowned organization with considerable pedigree, consistent career path in buyside real estate, language skills and vast international exposure (travel constantly for work and have closed deals in 5 countries), legacy at CBS (thanks dad)

Shooting for Wharton / HBS / Booth / Columbia
