BD Profile Evaluation [#permalink] New post 17 May 2011, 10:15
Hi everyone. I appreciate any suggestions and comments regarding my profile evaluation.

Personal: Asian male, 24 years old

Undergraduate: 3.5/4.0, top 10 undergraduate business school; Spring 2009

Work Experience: Consulting at a big four accounting firm since Fall 2009. Primarily performing quantitative analysis, such as validating financial models and valuing derivatives

GMAT: 730 (V44, Q47)

Activities: Volunteer program, clubs during undergraduate studies

Objective: Business development at Fortune 500 company

Targets: Finance program at Berkeley, MIT, UCLA, Wharton, Yale (any additional programs/schools I should consider?)

One big question I have is regarding when to apply. It sounds as though a lot of people go through the application process twice. If I apply this year, I’ll only have two years of working experience, and so I’m not sure if that will be looked upon favorably. On the other hand, if I wait until next year to apply and don’t get accepted, I will have to wait until five years after I’ve graduated from undergraduate (five years working experience) to apply again.

Any feedback and questions are greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance.

Your profile seems somewhat similar to mine--Asian male, somewhat recent grad, similar academic history. I'd recommend adding Columbia and UChicago to your list, and maybe adding a couple safety schools (while you should be competitive at most of your choices, it might be advisable to choose a fallback). As far as applying with less than average experience, if you feel ready to attend b-school, and you can effectively convey that through your essays, i don't see any reason to hesitate in submitting applications. Best of luck to you, and I hope you find the answers you're looking for here.

Thanks a lot for your input. Before looking any further into schools, I'll take some more time to reflect and decide on when I would like to go back and why it'd be appropriate then.
