Profile Evaluation - 700 GMAT, 3.8 GPA [#permalink] New post 13 Apr 2011, 18:58
Hi, would appreciate a quick assessment on the below profile.

FT MBA
GPA: 3.8 in Economics (distinction), cum laude from HYP school, class of '07
EC's: 4 year varsity team member, various other clubs & publications. Worked, studied, volunteered abroad extensively (every summer) during college.
GMAT: 700 (47 Q, 40 V), took back in '07 just after starting work.

Work Experience: 2 years private equity in US after graduation, 1.5-2 years venture capital in frontier emerging market in southeast Asia (work is more operational/entrepeneurial than finance related since we work pretty extensively with the companies we invest in)

EC's: Some volunteer work, tutoring & teaching experience, do a fair bit of interviewing and marketing for alma mater here in Asia, manage a softball team in a local expat softball league, significant amount of time though has been devoted to studying the local language with a tutor.

I am looking to apply to a few schools this fall '11. Likely going to focus on the top 10. I work with HBS alums and one or two would give a good recommendation.

Thanks

HBS recommender a plus, VC/PE a real plus, as the adcoms know how hard it is to break into this industry especially as a recent undergrad, so you should definitely focus on that angle. It will help you b/c you have something rare to offer you classmates: real experience in the VC industry. Make sure you do it this year though if you want to use your GMAT score--they are only good for 5 years.
