Dear Admission Consultants from MBA Apply,

thanks for the time spent reviewing numerous enquiries.

I would really appreciate, if you can quickly evaluate my profile. My goal is to apply soon (2012/2013) for a full-time MBA program in the top 20 US business schools.

Additionally, I completed the first 2 years of my Bachelor in Germany - also Business Administration, at a Top 3 German university, but returned to Bulgaria because of private reasons.

TOEFL: Targeting ~110

Work experience:
Financial Leasing company, subsidiary of the biggest European financial institution - 6 months (Internships)
Big4, Financial services Audit - 4 months (Internship)
Middle-sized project management company- preparation and financial analysis of renewable energy plants projects. The last year I took a position suggesting high-level of responsibility and lead the newly-formed division, representing a well-known Austrian ISO certification company in Bulgaria. Achieved rise in market-share end revenue through a very successful market entry strategy - 2 years (Full-time).
Currently preparing for the interview process with top-tier management consulting companies - Internship or Full-time job

Foreign experience:

Lived as a young boy in Düsseldorf, Germany for 1 year.
Studied in Munich, Germany for 2 years.
Longer business trips to Austria.
Longer concert trips.

Extracurricular activities:
* 10 years of membership in Rotary International - member of Interact- and then Rotaract clubs. Responsibility as Club-President and Club-Vicepresident of both clubs, where had to inspire over 30 club members. Took over responsibility also on District (multinational level), being Regional Club Representative (>250 club members)

* Member of several students clubs - as an example - the students club of the Institute of Market Economy.
* Foreign languages: English (Fluent), German (Fluent).
* participated in several photographic competitions as this is a major hobby

Target:
The best possible within Top20 BS, but to name some BS. I would like to join - Harvard, Wharton, Booth, Stern, Sloan etc.

Post MBA
Some years Management- and Financial- consulting (if I can't make it now) in an English-speaking setting. After some years I would go back to me home country and start (own business).

Looikng forward for your honest opinion regarding strengths and weaknesses.

Thanks for your time!

Sloan, Booth -- stretches (but worth at least applying to)
Stern, Yale, Cornell, Ross, Duke, Darden, Haas, UCLA -- sweet spots (schools where you should focus on; choose 3-4 from this list).

You have a solid background for these range of schools; it's not about strengths/weaknesses, but more about the fact that you're up against some very high caliber candidates from around the world all competing for limited seats. Just do the best you can on the application - and so long as you do that and choose a range of schools that are in range, then you should be fine.

Dear Alex,

thank you for your answer. Do you mean I would have a chance for "stretches" schools, if I improve some of the areas of my application? (in my opinion my work experience should get more competitive)
As I focus on financial and strategic MBA programs, those from California could be a bit more technology oriented.
Can you give my here or on PM a brief description on you MBA and essay services and their prices.

Thanks :)
