Hi,

Thank you for looking at this thread.

I am thinking of applying to HBS, Kellogg, Sloan, and Haas. Given the time now (October), I am planning to apply two of them in Round 2 and leave the HBS and Haas to Round 3. Can you please tell me whether it is doable? Or I am out of my mind?

My profile is:

Chinese male, 28 years old.

Academic:
(1) 3.0 undergraduate GPA in a top Australian university.
(2) 3.86 GPA from Boston College, Master in Finance, Beta Gamma Sigma member.
(3) GMAT: not yet, first mock exam is 700.

Work experience:
(1) 3 years audit at KPMG China, lead team for field work.
(2) summer intern at a top investment bank in China
(3) currently co-founder of a small e-commerce firm in Seattle.

Extra curriclm:
(1) professional athlete with provincial champion and national award, team leader and got gold medal.
(2) student ambassador, founder of a student club during undergraduate study.

Purpose of MBA:
-- I want to do MBA because I feel in love with marketing side of the business while i was running this e-commerce firm. I love doing marketing things much more than running the whole firm. I want to concentrate on marketing, get an MBA, then get into big companies and become a marketing expert.

Thank you very much for your time!

Hi there,

I assume you'll take the GMAT soon? Or at least work on your essays in conjunction with your GMAT prep for R2 deadlines?

Generally you should have time to apply to 2-3 schools for R2, yes, depending on how much time you have on a weekly basis, when your GMAT is, how much prep you are doing for that, etc. Keep in mind that R3 can be pretty challenging, because so many seats are usually already taken in a given class. So I would prioritize and apply to the schools you are most interested in sooner if possible. It sounds like Kellogg would be a great match with your marketing passion.

It sounds like you have a strong profile if you do well on the GMAT and put together compelling essays. The combination of your financial background, some start-up experience, athletic involvement, and international experiences should provide you with some interesting stories to draw from in your essays and in the classroom.

Keep us posted on how things go with the GMAT and other questions, and good luck on your progress!
