I am basically applying to Business Schools at the moment and i'm a bit pressed for time..since the second deadlines of most programs, I am considering, are approaching, in the first or second week of January.
Briefly, here's my profile:
Age: 25 yrs old Pakistani male
Education: Bachelors(hons.) from the top institute in Pakistan (LUMS)
SGPA: 3.46 (specialization gpa in cs)
GMAT: 710 ( took it on 23rd Dec. '06)
Experience: 2.4 years at Bank Alfalah Limited ..as a credit analyst (now a Credit Manager)
Community Service experience: worked with CARE, a leading NGO in Pakistan, that promotes better education for children. Worked here for 8 months.
Total work experience: slightly more than 3 yrs ( as of now)
Basically, I would also require more or less complete financial aid/scholarships. So here are the schools i'm considering:
1. Harvard - my first love
3. University of South Carolina -IMBA
4. William & Mary Mason School of Business
5. Boston University School of management
6. Wakeforest: Babock school of business
Pls guide me as to what would be the suitable options for me. I don't think I would have much an issue with writing good essays, since I was the editor for my bank's publications as well. I look forward to your guidance.
I would also like to know if I am aiming too high or too low ..or what other options should I consider. My long term goals include private equity fund management. Hence, i'll most certainly specialize in finance..
Thanks a lot for such great work over here..
