I have yet to take the GMAT yet, but I believe I can score around 720 based on practices tests about 2 years ago... My goal is to get into a top 15 school in finance in order to work in investment banking.

Education: 3.2/4.0 at UC San Diego in Bioengineering: Biotechnology. From what I recall, I got straight A's in calculus.

Experience (from recent to past):

I graduated in 2009 and have been working since...

Agent at New York Life Insurance (2011-current): Sold financial products, and did a lot of prospecting.

Sales Associate at ICIO Water from (2007-2011): Exhibited products at conventions, performed outside sales to supermarkets and expanded geographic reach of business.

Founder / CEO at SD Holiday Lighting (2007-2009): Managed the finances, designed the marketing materials and handled the sales. Installed holiday lights on over 70 houses and businesses each season from San Diego to Orange County. Recruited, trained and led over 20 Employees each year

Branch Manager at College Works Painting (2007-2007, one summer): Managed and supervised painting jobs amounting to over $50k in revenue. Recruited and trained six painters and eight marketers. Established an autonomous marketing team.

Investment Intern at Morgan Stanley (summer of 2005): Prepared client portfolios, and performance reports. Helped in asset allocation strategies.

Hi there,

Thanks for sharing your profile. I believe a lot of your candidacy will be based upon that GMAT, as well as your essays and how well you convey your 'story', linking your past to the MBA and to your future goals. The committee will be curious based on your profile why you are now interested in investment banking. Your GMAT will be the place to demonstrate your quantitative skills and also help counter balance your GPA (so you had a 3.2 overall? That is a bit of a flag potentially).

While it's great that you feel you can hit the 720 or so mark, I encourage you to focus on some thorough preparation again, as soon as you can (since the skills/prep from 2 years ago will not be fresh now) and work on getting that score so that you have a better feel for the level/ranking of program you should apply to. In the meantime it's also time to start brainstorming for and preparing for your essays.

Keep us posted on questions and your progress. Good luck!
