Hi Admissionado,

I am a first-year analyst at a middle market investment bank (Jefferies, Houlihan Lokey, Harris Williams) in a specialized industry coverage group. Won't be applying for a couple more years obviously. One of my colleagues just was accepted to Tuck R1.

GMAT: 760 (V: 42, Q: 50). SAT: 2280 (V: 720, M: 780, W: 780)

Georgetown University, 3.4/4.0 in Finance & International Business double-major. Tough adjustment to college in freshman and early sophomore years, strong upward trend in junior and senior years (~3.75)

Actively involved in firm recruiting at Georgetown, firm volunteer events (serving homeless in city). In college was music director for 2.5 years (the leader) of a community service-focused acappella group that worked with several notable non-profit organizations and held shows and developed 2 albums with proceeds to charity

Targeting HBS, Wharton, Columbia, MIT Sloan

A big career question: I am considering jumping ship and working for my family business, a ~$100 million in revenue professional foodservice distribution company in a leadership capacity. Do you think this would make me a stronger applicant? (I can provide more detail if you'd like). Or should I stay in IB?

Thanks!!!

First of all, congratulations on the fantastic GMAT (and very clever of you for getting it out of the way sooo early).
Regarding your job choice, I don't think you need to think about it in terms of MBA. I don't think that one is clearly better than the other (of course how can you go wrong with goals of leading a 100 million dollar business?). If you feel it's time for you to go move on to the family business, by all means, go ahead. Ultimately it may even be more interesting than IB, but if you prefer to gain experience in IB, it can make sense too (from an MBA point of view). So I would say: just go with what you are ready to do.
