I'd love a profile evaluation! [#permalink] New post 15 Mar 2013, 04:44
Hi,

Appreciate any advice you might have for me.

I graduated from a top-15 undergrad business school with a triple major in Finance/Accounting/International business with a 3.7 GPA. Also got my Masters in Accounting in my 4th year (my masters GPA was also 3.7) and was a 4-year varsity athlete

Licensed CPA
730 GMAT (about to expire so I'll need to take again. Expecting a ~750)

By the time of application, I'll have 4 years of work experience (1 already, 90% 2 promotions) at a fortune 50 company - 2 in a finance rotation program, where I did one year in a tier-2 China city. After the program I joined the Treasury group at the same company where I am on the team responsible for ABS activity and will have been there for 2 years by the time I apply

I mentor 5 employees in my old rotation program and am involved in future people planning for the program.
15 hrs/week of volunteer tax prep for low-income people.

Hoping for one of the following schools:

Harvard
Wharton
Kellogg
Booth
Sloan
LBS
Ross
McCombs

Thanks!

You have done everything right up to this stage of the game and your credentials place you in the competitive pool for a top five school. Now you can enter the next phase of this process which is submitting the strongest possible application that you possibly can. This means compelling essays, strong recommendations, impressive interviews and the like. If these controllable aspects of your application are as strong as the rest of your credentials, then you should see very impressive results. Just remember that to a lot of these schools you are competing with the best candidates in the world so competition is fierce.
