Extra Cirriculars in college :

2. President of the Entrepreneurship Club - Defined a new direction for the club in the post dot com era towards broader arenas.. and involved youth from diverse schools, .. interacted with many entrepreneurs..
This led to an active involvement in an international Social Entrepeneurship movement that fosters entrepreneurship as a means of development. and poverty alleviation.. ., (SIFE).. represented Singapore, and won an international competitions beating teams from 15-20 countries...

3. represented the university as member of the debating team.

Work Ex : Will be 4 years in june 2008.


Working in a oil major(fortune top 5) as a sales executive / trader for commodity and speciality petrochemicals esp growing new market- India..handling profits in excess of 10 million. Responsibilities have grown rapidly..no direct reports, but manage many national level distributors and contractors..

Extensive travel in Asian region..

collaborated in a couple of IT startups..though nothing really came of any of them, I have gained significant insights into innovation..

worked in many odd jobs in college to support myself..

Volunteerism : still actively involved in the SIFE movement..coaching youth, organizing programs...

Ashaker,

Yes, I believe you do have a shot at the top 7 (depending of course on whose top 7 you're referring to). You didn't mention goals so this is sort of a generic response based on what I know of your profile but I think your odds are best at Chicago, Michigan, MIT, and Wharton and lowest at Stanford and HBS. You have a strong profile though so I would anticipate one or more top 7 schools admitting you.

Good luck,
