Thank you in advance for evaluating my profile.
BA in English Literature from an elite liberal art university in China.

3.41 GPA, GMAT 740 (Q49 V41 IR7 AWA 3.5 the awa is low, made an error in exam)

Some highlights of my 3 years of working experience (4 years at matriculation)

The media are in turmoil. I kind of helped China's most important news organization to better cope with the industrial transformation.

1. Youngest recipient of China's highest-level annual journalism award because, in the first month of my job, I designed a system for my team to monitor breaking events on social media

2. Help founding our agency's social media operation

3. Help improve the financial coverage of our office

Hey there,

Thanks for posting here Yiz - happy to dive a bit more into your profile after your questions on the AWA. Also, jeez! You almost got killed reporting a story! This is by far one of the more engaging profile evaluations I've read in a while!

You've written a lot and my response is going to be short but it'll be short for a good reason. That reason being you have a solid shot at the top 16. Great GMAT, off the beaten path experience, and goals that, at a high level, make sense. You have a bit more work to do on that front but that's ok. That's execution. You have all the pieces you need to make a successful run at the top 16.

The LGBT identification does mean diversity and, if you are in that community, it can be beneficial. But I wouldn't factor that in from the get go. Use it as a measure on the margin.

I know this is a really short post compared to what I usually write but that's because you've got the pieces to the puzzle. Now it's all about how you put it together. Also, you should think about which of the top 16 you want to apply to.

Visit our free, detailed [School Profiles] to figure out what sets programs apart from one another.

Check out our guide on [How to Choose Programs] to figure out what you should be thinking about when shortlisting these programs.

If you'd like to chat about the process or if you have any additional questions, reach out - we'd love to chat with you. [Sign up for a free consultation!]

I hope this helps!
