Thank you very much for your prompt reply.
Actually, all my job changes are based on strong reasons, i.e. career change, more responsibility, better companies, more pay (as much as 40% growth). And I hope my current Fortune 100 company can help people to understand my progression more.
I have a friend who is Yale SOM alumni. He worked in 4 companies in 4 years before doing his MBA. I hope I will be fine too.
May I have some further questions please:
(1) <Main question> How can I strengthen my profile? I am already in contact with some charity organization and hope I can find some leadership position (a bit hard for new entrant). Any other suggestion?
(2) Regarding schools, good to hear that you think Stern is doable, as Stern and Yale are my targets. How about my chance for Yale? MIT and Haas sounds good to me too.
I am surprised to know that entering LBS is harder than Oxbridge. In Hong Kong, the name of Oxbridge is VERY
For Duke, I know them because of their NCAA team but I don’t know much about their BS (sorry, I know very little about US BS at this moment
). Rochester and Texas are unknown to me (I guess the same case for most employers in HK, not sure the case in US though), so I doubt that I will send my application to them.
(3) I am seriously considering using the admission consulting service, but because the one with good reputation, like yours, although good value for the money, costs pretty much to me due to family burden. So, I need to evaluate my chance before committing to those services. If I can get GMAT730
, and if I choose a professional consultant helping me to prepare my story, including eliminating the job hopper worry, will I have a reasonably good chance for entering (in priority) Yale, NYU Stern, MIT Sloan, Oxbridge or Hass
? If yes, I will the ROI in consulting service will be good enough for me. Could you show me some light on this?
If you think any of the above is more appropriate to reply in PM, please feel free to do so.
Thank you very much.
