Need advice on how to nail e application/recruiting process? [#permalink]

Are you starting to work on your MBA applications? Are you starting your MBA journey this fall? Want to improve your chances of getting accepted to the school of your choice? Want to improve your chances of securing that coveted internship/full-time spot with an awesome investment bank/consulting firm?
By way of introduction, my name is Joseph and I'm a 2nd year at Booth, graduating in June this year. I will be joining McKinsey full-time in the fall - I also interned with them last summer.
I'm currently helping a start-up conduct user case surveys in Chicago. I'm offering to speak in person to anyone in the Chicago area about the MBA application process and/or investment banking/consulting recruiting process (or anything about business school) over coffee/lunch.
A little background on myself: I applied to 15 schools in 2011 and received offers from 11. During my time at Booth, I also assisted my peers, who were on the admissions panel, with the review process. I secured offers from each of the big 3 consulting firms and a few other boutique shops when I was recruiting last year. In addition, I also received offers from a few investment banks including JPM so we can also talk about any questions you may have regarding banking vs. consulting.
In return, I ask for 15 minutes of your time, in person, for my survey.
Ideal survey candidate: Both males and females are welcome. As long as you've done online apparel shopping within the last year (or at least "screen-shopped"). You live/work in the Chicago area currently and can meet in the city.
If you may be interested, please reach out to me at joseph.jiexian.phua(at)gmail(dot)com. Thank you!
p.s. please feel free to pass this on to anyone you feel may be interested. I deeply appreciate your kind assistance.
