Profile Eval-how does financial success affect funding? [#permalink]
26 Feb 2014, 06:36
I would appreciate any insight you could offer into my chances of getting in w/funding to some of my round 2 applications. And then if unsuccessful trying again next year will make a difference?
I am Hispanic male 28 (29 at matriculation), GRE 168/Q 165/V (760 equivalent) I had a 3.61 from a 2nd tier midwest public school (I finished HS at 16 and just ended up at the school in my area, but was hyper active/involved undergrad) and then went straight to HKS and SAIS on full ride. I worked professionally abroad in SA as well as in the public sector in midwest. Recently I am working as an entrepreneur and have seen a good deal of financial success.
My interests are in smaller programs Cornell, Tuck, Yale for Consortium, and then MIT/Stanford.
If it doesn't work out this year I am exploring trying again next year. Do you think financial success in my current work will limit my ability to secure funding? I have been unsure in essays and interviews how much to disclose.
