Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
-29 and currently live and work in Canada -interned with a hedgefund to start my career; however, I have almost 3 years experience in agriculture (on a path to become a commodity trader with the top company in Canada) -B.A. in economics from a top 20 liberal arts university in the US -low gpa 2.7(really struggled my first two years) -NCAA division 1 athlete (sport was played all school year) -the team was very successful and I won a lot of individual awards -played two years professionally after university -diagnosed with a neurological disease my senior year (it is an incredible story about what I went through and had to overcome) -one of two people in the world that have played professionally with this disease -I do a lot of fundraising for my disease and have become a role model for a lot kids living with the disease -scored a 680 on the gmat (49q 34v), I scored a 730 on the practice exam-froze up on the English section during the exam, so I know that I can do better.
Motivation to do a MBA: -I want to be living proof to all the kids living with my disease that you can live a normal life and achieve your dreams. -Would love to get into Finance-the market and what affects the markets drives and motivates me. -I have been through a lot in my life and will have a much different perspective than others.
If want to know anymore, please let me know; I would really appreciate an honest evaluation to what is realistic.
I think your chances are good at a top 14 school. Your work experience and GMAT score is good enough to overcome the low GPA. I think your experience as D-I and professional experience, and fight against neurological disease would make great essay material.
One thing I would recommend is to tighten up your goals. For example, what exactly about finance motivates you? What role do you see yourself play after b-school and beyond?
