1) Basic demographic info: 27 (Will be 28 by program start date), Male, White - USA

2) Educational Background: Major - Banking and Finance (Appalachian State University), 3.3 GPA, GMAT: 710 - 92% Overall - 63%Q 96%V

3) Work experience: Commercial Lending and Underwriting - Lead a small team, but I do not have any official management responsibilities; I have been promoted twice within my organization, once in role, and once to a new level in my existing role; I work in middle market and small business lending for a Fortune 500 US based bank; I have worked for 5 years, all with the same organization. I started my career in their leadership training program immediately after completing undergrad.

4) Extracurriculars: In the past I have been involved with fundraising for the YMCA, and on an allocations committee for the United Way. Currently I am a board member of my local Red Cross chapter, and am a member of the RMA (Risk Management Association). I am also a frequent international traveler, golfer, and runner.

5) Short/Long term goals: My short term goal is to go into Management/Strategic Consulting. Long term I would like to learn the skills I learn to manage a non-profit helping in developing areas. I Would like to work on the east coast in the US, although working in Europe is a bucket list item for me.

6) Schools: I am considering University of Texas - McCombs; UNC - Kenan Flagler (I would be an in-state applicant); Georgetown - McDonough; LBS

I realize that LBS is likely a long shot, but is it at least somewhat possible? As for the others I think I will be fairly competitive. I'm also wondering if anyone has any suggestions on school either ranked higher that I may have a shot at or if I need to set my sights lower.

Thanks.

Hi,

You have good GMAT and an avg. GPA scores. Your ECs seem to be fine as well. The list of your b-school(s) looks realistic and should be within your reach. However, to convert your chances from application to admission, I would suggest you to submit strong application essays and work hard in interviews. You may try your chances in b-school(s) by clicking http://www.apphelp.co.in/Bschool-selection.htm

To get some more clarity on b-school application process and inputs from top b-school grads, kindly attend the webinar conducted by b-school alumnus. For more information and to register your name, click http://www.apphelp.co.in/apphelp-alumni-sessions.php

Let me know in case of further queries.

Regards
Erina
