Hello,

I think your work experience is pretty strong! I'd say extracurriculars are good but seem more like hobbies than actual leadership roles in organized activities/community organizations (but I think this is okay, given that you work banking hours). I would say a GMAT retake would be a good thing to go for - if you can get over the 700 hump it will greatly increase your chances at the programs you listed.

If you do find yourself with any free time, any community organizations/nonprofits that you can get involved with in a serious way would be a good thing.

Best of luck,
Mili

Hi Mili,

Thanks for your answer!
Regarding the volunteering/extracurricular activities, I was thinking about starting something to strenghten my profile but isn't it too late?
I mean, I do have several months before applying, but wouldn't it look fake if I coincidently start volunteering 6 months before applying to a MBA?
That doesn't look like a genuine interest to me, and I am wondering what the adcoms would think.

Great question. You're right that it can look very disingenuous this late in the game. However, it's less about the quantity (or length of time you do something) than it is about the quality. So, the idea would be to do something whereby you can make a big impact on the organization within the timeframe that you have. In order for you to want to put in that kind of time/energy, it'll have to be something you are really passionate about. If you're really passionate about it, it's not disingenuous :)

Best,
Mili
