Background: Indian male/25 (non-US citizen)
Work Experience: 2.5 years at a top management consulting firm (McKinsey/BCG/Bain) in a US office. Have been staffed on an international study (South America) too. Recently got promoted to a post-MBA position. While in school, I interned at some top firms too (does this count for anything?).
College: 3.51 from a top public (UVA/Michigan/UCLA/Berkeley) in Electrical Engineering and Business (Honors). Graduated in 2010.
GMAT: 770 (Q51, V42)
Extracurriculars: Varsity college sports team, president of a few clubs, published a journal research paper, currently involved with a local sports club team, run marathons for charity, and have been heavily involved in a non-profit for the last 3-4 years. If it means anything, I have lived in 4 different countries.
Target schools: HBS, Wharton, Stanford, Columbia, Chicago, Tuck, Sloan. Please suggest others that would fit my background, and would have exit ops for PE.
Applying in: R1 2013-14
Post-MBA goal: Ideally, move to a PE megafund (or MM). Otherwise, return to my firm.
Looking good! You have a competitive profile for your target schools. You may also want to consider LBS. Otherwise, you have chosen well.
