Hi,

I am wondering my chances of going into a top 10 school, specifically Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, MIT, Chicago:

Male, Chinese American, 25
B.S. in Engineering
GMAT: 740 (Q: 50, V: 40)

Work experience:
Worked four years for a large asset management firm, with two initial years in a rotational program and two years as an analyst for a portfolio strategy.
Mentor/supervise some interns as well as entry level employees
Extracurriculars include volunteering for charitable organizations and tutoring high school kids.
Big on club sports.

Also, I applied to my schools in rd2 of last year and got no interviews (applied to Wharton, Columbia, Harvard, and Berkeley). Was I the 10% who fell through the cracks or am I missing something? I'm thoroughly perplexed and am cautious about trying again only to get burned.

Hi skyelitez,

Thanks for posting. From what you have written, you have a very strong application. Your numbers indicate that you have the intellect and focus to thrive in a top tier MBA program. One thing I want to mention is that 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.

If you'd like, we offer free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
