I just finished writing the GMAT for the 3rd time and although not as high as I expected scored a 600 (Q32 V40) (I went from a 360 to a 600). I wanted to get a profile evaluation to see if my other characteristics can compensate for a low quant score.
Here's my details:
- GPA/Major/School - 3.2/Business Mgmt & Information Systems/Ryerson University (Canada)
- GMAT with breakdown: 600 (Q32 V40)
- Resume highlights:
- Big 4 Professional Services (current) --> Consultant
- Big 4 Professional Services(2 years) --> Business Architect (promoted 1 level up)
- Top Capital Markets bank (1.5 year)--> Equity Trading Systems Analyst
- Started a company in 3rd year of university (website/closed project)
- Started a company in 2010 (website/sold company)
- extracurricular involvements:
- Volunteer at Daily Bread Food Bank
- interesting personal facts:
- First generation immigrant
- rebuilt a 74 Chevrolet Corvette
- only individual in immediate family to attend university
- self taught 3 programming languages on the job
Overall, I guess what I'm trying to communicate is that I think my quant score is an anomoly in my abilities. My university scores in Statistics, Accounting, Finance, Management Accounting, and Micro/Macro economics at a B+ or higher in addition to my job requiring some quant skills.
My dream school is UC Berkeley followed by Duke, UCLA, McCombs, and Carnegie Mellon. I intend to major in entrepreneurship with the intent of moving into product management for a consumer electronics firm.
I want to do an MBA to make an industry switch since most of my internship experience and post-grad experience is in financial services.
Any help would be great!
