I am looking to apply in round 1 or 2 and was hoping you could review my profile.
26 (male) at matriculation with 44 months of full time WE (government mgmt consulting) - just switched companies over the summer for a promotion/more responsibilities
700 GMAT (95% V, 67% Q) - low quant, but since I did well in calculus, statistics, and finances courses, perhaps they may give me a break. Would taking an online course like MBA Math help in this area?
3.3 cumulative GPA (Econ major) from private Top 20 (I think my final 2 years was around 3.2ish but my major was something around 3.0). Transfered from a state university with a 4.0 my freshman year, but I'm not sure if adcoms will take that into consideration.
Didn't get involved with anything during my undergrad unfortunately, but I picked up the slack post-graduation by volunteering to do some college career counseling, volunteering at the Make A Wish Foundation, and I hold a chair position on my local alumni board. I was also captain of my kickball team and I coordinate monthly company happy hours
I have good reviews from my employers will be able to get solid recs from them as well.
I would like to get into more generalized strategy consulting, hopefully with an energy focus, or even a general management track at an energy firm.
A little bit more about myself...I've lived on three different continents and worked for a summer in Abu Dhabi for a PE firm. Will being "cultured" (for lack of a better word) help potentially?
My list of possible schools includes the following:
I'm on track to be promoted in January and I'm worried that if I apply now, I'm not going to be impressive enough professionally. I've done quite a few things in the past year (business development work, creating marketable solutions for my consulting group, became a task lead (without any subordinates)) so maybe that'll be enough but I have no idea. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
