Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
-760 GMAT, 99th V, 88th Q -3.97 GPA -BS in Accounting, minor in Economics at state university ranked about 100th nationally in undergrad rankings -Member of competitive honors business program, which Businessweek has mentioned each of the last two years in its annual rankings as a strong program. -Will have CPA and 2.5 yrs of work experience at Big 4 as auditor upon entrance into program at Fall of 2011 (assuming this is when I apply and that I actually do apply) -Worked as part-time newspaper delivery manager at state's 2nd largest newspaper for two years during college. I managed a team of 70 independent contractors. Though this was part-time, the management of personnel and other skills I acquired were invaluable. I let this job take the place of EC's since I thought I would learn FAR more than in EC's. -Completed marketing and economics internship -Volunteered for three years as a youth mentor at my church during college (probably 3 hrs/wk) -Might be useless, but was a two-time all state soccer player in high school and conference champion in track.
I would love to attend a top 5 MBA program, if not top 10. I am eager to work in investment finance at some point as my family has some roots in the field.
I would GREATLY appreciate a quick summary of what you think my prospects are and what I must do to improve them over the next three years. Thanks!
Apologies for the long delay in replying; not sure how I missed your post. Your numbers are quite strong. If you're aiming for top 5 than you must be able to show a lot of leadership and impact, in and outside of work. You mentioned leadership during college, but not since. If formal leadership roles are hard to get at work then you will have 'double up' and try to wow them with your leadership outside of work. That could take the form of board membership of an NGO, leading teams of volunteers, starting an organization, etc.
Good luck, _________________
