28 year old white male
3.1 GPA - Tulane University
4 years workat a Fortune 500 financial services firm progressing from administrative assistant to highest level of analyst...analyst work was in a unique team based environment
Completed 1st level of CFA program
Steady community involvement through volunteer organizations since undergrad
Interested in working for a hedge fund/private investment mangement firm with long term goal of striking out on my own
I think I am a unique value proposition. Having lived and worked through Hurricane Katrina I have many valuable experiences to contribute to a B-school class. Additionally, during my tenure I have been through two mergers- one as the acquirer and one as the acquired.
Anyway, I was considering applying to 3-4 ultra eilte programs (Chicago GSB, Columbia, Wharton, Kellog) 3 elite programs (NYU, Tepper, Cornell) and one safety school (Washington University)
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
