Hi all, Thanks in advance!
First, below is my profile:
Age: 27 (Korean) Major/GPA/School/Year: Finance Major(4.0) and overall(3.6) / top 10 state school / graduated in 09 Work exp: working at a valuation group at big 4 (2 year) and used to work for a small investment management com (1 year) GMAT: 720 CFA: Need to take level 3 ECs: a board member at a non-profit organization that helps low-income individuals to jobs and a co-founder at a mentoring program for Korean high school students (been doing more than 2 years for both) Post MBA goal: PE or F500 general management (would like to work in Korea once I graduate)
I think I have a unique background that most people don't have with which aligns with my current volunteering activities. Anyway, I'm targeting booth or wharton and fully understand that they both are the top programs and are very competitive.
As I mentioned, I would like to work in Korea and am thinking about going back to Korea this year and working another year or so and apply an MBA (possible around 2013 or 2014), instead of continuing to working at my current job. The main reason being is that I would like to experience what is like to be working in Korea before I apply an MBA program. Also, I would like to build some networks as well. Assuming a job will be somewhat equivalent to the one I currently have, do you guys think that will either increase or decrease my chances at those MBA programs?
I'm debating whether I should apply later this year before I move back to Korea.
