Could you evaluate? [#permalink] New post 12 May 2012, 14:46
Accepted,

I'm graduating from undergrad this week and was wondering, based on my stats, what I could do to improve my chances over the next few years. I don't want my life to revolve around going to b-school, but I would like to know if you have any tips for things I should look into on the side. I would like to go to H/W/S or Haas/Anderson if I do not meet the H/W/S criteria, but was wondering where you feel I would be most competitive if I don't fit the bill for any of those.

My stats:
- Starting with an elite buyside equity research firm (~$100 bil. AUM), would like to matriculate in 4 years
- 730 GMAT (48 Q, 42 V), just took it
- 3.65 GPA in Finance from unranked state school (Magna Cum Laude and Beta Gamma Sigma)
- President of undergrad Finance club, Treasurer of Fraternity, several awards for leadership
- 5 undergrad internships - 1 in investment banking M&A, 1 in investment banking public finance
- Private Pilot
- Starting professional prep. non-profit for highschool students

I know it's a little early to be thinking about this, but I'd love to hear your opinion on what I could do to improve my application. Thanks in advance for your help!

You sound like you're on the right track. Don't fall into the trap of the typical overworked finance guy and let your extracurricular leadership fall by the wayside: keep leading. If you can manage to succeed and shape deals in your firm at the same time, you should be on target for these programs.
