1)
Work Experience: 2 yrs
Current Employer: Bulge bracket bank
Position: Analyst, rotational program (5 positions to date)

2) Your GMAT.
700 (Preparing to retake again hopefully to get 730+)

3) College info:
Lesser known State/City College
GPA: 3.5 in finance, have 5C+ and 3 W's, the C+s were due to getting the hang of basic finance classes, then picked up momentum and gained A's in the advanced classes, ended the last semester with a 3.9) the W's I retook them and gained an A.

4) Significant college and post-college extra-curricular activities or community service, especially leadership experience.

College:
VP of a finance club
Representative for a women's finance association
Mentor/volunteer for high school students

Post college:
In Americorps (tutoring young children)
Advocate (similar to a social worker for neglected and abused children ensuring they have a home)
Mentor for women's association (for High school and college students)
Part of a mentoring association specifically for at risk, inner city students

(and on the side trying collaborate with a fellow advocate to create a not for profit children's aid, mostly for at risk students to create their own business plans etc.)

6) Your target programs.
Am I competitive in any of these schools?

HBS
MIT
Booth
Kellogg
Tuck
Johnson
Columbia
Yale

I have visited these schools and loved HBS, MIT, Tuck, Johnson. And are there any other schools I should be looking at?

7) Your post-MBA goal.

Longer term goal is ultimately to create an investing community/company that helps creates capital for women social entrepreneurs as my main goal (a stretch but that's an ultimate goal)

Short term goals: to do IBD mostly in restructuring to help create the investing foundation, and subsequently to PE/investing firm.

You may also want to consider NYU Stern and Duke. You have a chance at all the above, but a 730 will help a lot. Your experience is a strength. If you would like help with your MBA applications, please let me know.

Best,
Linda
