4) College achievements: President of Thai Student Association. Post college: I kept close contact with Thai Student Association in IU as advisor. I helped advise many Thai students who may need guidance on career, life in US and etc. I did not participate in any volunteer program since work was very demanding combine with studying for CFA. I do participate in charity race regularly. I understand this may be my weak point.

5) CFA Level II candidate

7) Work in consulting specialize in consumer products or pharmaceutical industries. Short term goals: I have maintained relationship with several BCG friends who may help with referrals.

Harvard, Wharton and CBS are stretches, but given your goals, background, excellent grades and competitive work experience, it still makes sense for you to apply. Also consider Duke, Ross, Darden, and Cornell Johnson.

Best,
Linda

Realistically speaking, do I have equally tough chance between HBS and CBS? Would applying early admission at CBS improve my chance by quite a bit? I am still curious about Stern, is that a stretch as well?

Applying ED to CBS does improve your chances; I don't know by how much. However, only apply ED if you would happily go to CBS. Harvard is statistically harder to get into than CBS. Historically, CBS was harder to get into than NYU, but today it probably is very similar.

If you would like help with your MBA applications, please let me know.
Best,
Linda
