2) GMAT.
710 48Q/39V

3) College info:
3.37 GPA at a top 20 University (Double Major in Economics and Language, Minor in History). Worked 12-15 hours/week throughout my tenure there.
Placed out of college calculus with AP classes (both AB and BC). Took business statistics and econometrics for my major.

4.) Significant College Exp
Internship working on small-mid sized international project financing transactions. Worked on feasibility studies and presentations to secure financing ranging from 20-50mm (renewable energy and hospitality deals)

Worked abroad for one month (in country whose language I studied), helping a new startup implement marketing strategies to increase sales of products. Assisted in planning of logistics to efficiently transport products in a developing market with limited transportation and shipping options.

Fraternity Social Chair-Managed budget of roughly $20k.

Worked for Law School and Office of the General Council part time. Also tutored high school student for all four years.

Investors club, Entrepreneur Club, Multiple Language Clubs

Target Schools:
Wharton (specifically Lauder Program), Columbia, Stern, Ross
Double legacy at UPenn (Father WG, Mother BBA and Penn Grad School)

Aspirations post-MBA: Go back into international project finance to facilitate deals in emerging and developing markets. My father does this for a living, although I am not certain I am going to work there post-grad. Looking to add a much greater international focus to my career (very limited at this point in time), hence why Lauder is my first choice. I am a heritage speaker in the language program for which I am applying, so I should have an adequate skill level for their OPI interview.

Hi slowturbo,

Thanks for posting. Your numbers indicate that you have the intellect and focus to thrive in a top tier MBA program. Nothing about your story makes me think there is any reason why you cannot be admitted, but nothing stands out telling me why you should be admitted. All of the reasons why a top program would admit you are in the details of your work experience, personal experiences, personality, values and overall story.

We have free school specific advice for the programs you are considering here:

Wharton: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-s ... n-wharton/
Columbia: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-s ... -school-2/
Stern: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-s ... nyu-stern/

We also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,
Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
