Profile Evaluation - 700 (5.0), 5yrs work exp, entrepreneur [#permalink] New post 18 Sep 2011, 09:36
Hi Alex,

would love a profile eval from you.

personals: 26, male, asian-american
GMAT: 700 (90%), Q49 (85%), V35 (74%), 5.0 (verbal too low? retake?)
Undergraduate: UCSD, Management Science (Honors with Highest Distinction), GPA 3.5 (Major 4.0) (does adcom care about major gpa?)

Work Exp: Have 5 years of working experience.
2 years in recruitment (sales/business dev) focusing on hiring executive teams for startups
2 years in silicon valley startup (sales/business dev), early employee, helped build business unit from 0MM to 20MM annually, hired/managed team of 4 employees
1 year as founder/entrepreneur of company started overseas in HK (failed startup/does that look bad to adcom?)

EC: (lots in college) founding member of UCSD chapter of fraternity, sports (lacrosse), after-school mentoring/tutoring of underprivileged students, church
(present: not so much any more) entrepreneur community (mainly, lots of time spent here), fraternity alumni functions (when they happen), church

recs: don't have a current supervisor so asking previous supers for recs. (will have to explain this situation for some schools that require current supers recs)

Target Schools all hopefully R1: INSEAD, Columbia, Wharton, Stanford, Haas

Looking at schools with good entrepreneurship programs as well as a strong international focus. I can highlight the fact that I have started my own company (overseas) and want to continue as entrepreneur or working in startups after MBA, particularly for companies in Asia.

thanks!

If you're targeting R1, just focus on doing the best you can on your applications. Asking about your chances at these schools isn't constructive, since I assume you're already knee deep in writing the essays. But if you want reassurance -- your chances are zero if you don't apply at all.
