Thanks for taking the time to review this.

26, male, dual British-Australian.

Education: UK-equivalent 2.1 at a good Australian university studying business. (Still can't figure out the US equivalent, but based on my average score it should be something like a B or A-).

Employment: 3 years as an Associate in leveraged finance and restructuring large distressed European borrowers in a large bank based in London. Previously I was a graduate "management trainee" at the same bank and whereby I completed my Chartered Accounting qualification.

Goals: I would like to start my own fund up focusing on investing in special/distressed situations. Long-termer, I want to get more involved in public policy and help fund small tech firms acting as "industry disruptors".

Extra-curricular: I am a Co-Chair of an organisation for young, under 35 City-based workers networking and interacting with UK politicians and other senior figures offering public policy advice, mentoring, fundraising etc. I just recently left the Committee of a Chinese-British business relations group that has been around for more than 50 years. I am also studying Spanish in my spare time and enjoy boxing and the arts.

GMAT: I have yet to complete this but I am aiming for a 720 which seems achievable given my current performance on both the Verbal (where I am very strong) and Quant sections.

I would like to know what type of range of bschools my profile would suggest I be suited for.

Thanks for your help, guys!

Assuming your GMAT ends up as anticipated, consider (in no particular order) Chicago, Columbia, NYU Stern, Wharton, Georgetown, Yale, MIT Sloan, Duke, and LBS. If you want to add a stretch school to the mix, apply to HBS. Obviously I have suggested a range of schools.

If we can help you with your MBA application, please let me know.

Best,
Linda
