I was hoping to get a quick evaluation of my shot at my target business schools. I graduated from a top 5 US engineering school with a GPA of 3.3 (GPA of 3.6 in my major with increasing GPA each semester over my 4 years). I have a GMAT of 710. I worked 6 months for an engineering consulting firm until i had the opportunity to move into finance (what i realized i really wanted to do during college and therefore took a few business courses for electives in college). I have worked for a small sized trading firm for 1.5 years now (2.5 years at time of matriculation). Ive taken on large amounts of responsiblity at the firm and have 2 individualts working below for the past 6 months. My goal is to move into investment banking at a bulge bracket and eventually to venture capital down the road, once i have gained experience in the investment banking world. I feel an MBA is necessary to fill my lack of business education and obtain the proper recruiting resources the top programs offer in order get in the door. My top 2 target schools are chicago and northwestern. Will my stats and story give me a good chance at acceptance to these schools for fall 2006? thank you.

Wow, I don't know many people who successfully make the jump into finance after leaving school and entering another career. The fact that you were able to make that happen (and do well in your new career) will help you a lot.

Career-wise, I think you can put together a strong story. But what about outside of work? What are you involved in? How do you spend your time outside of work? These will also matter a lot if you want to get into Kellogg or Chicago.
