Profile Evaluation (Non-Traditional Candidate) [#permalink] New post 26 Jul 2012, 19:56
I have a pretty unusual background and would love to get your thoughts on whether I'm aiming for an appropriate range of schools. Also what (if any) aspects of my background should I emphasize/draw attention to in my applications?

I'm an Asian male and will be 27 when I apply (this fall).

Education:

After high school I attended a top 20 liberal arts school but dropped out after my first semester. I spent the next two years doing administrative work for a legal firm before leaving to enroll in a community college. Spent three years at the community college before transferring to a relatively unknown 4-year state school. Graduated two years later with degrees in economics and math.

My GPA is all over the place. I received 4 F's and a D at the liberal arts school. My GPA at the community college was around 2.8 and my GPA at the state school was a 3.7. My cumulative GPA comes out to a 3.2. I should note that while attending community college I worked around 30 to 40 hours a week at a restaurant as a server.

GMAT:

720 (Q50, V39)

Relevant work experience:

I've been working as a business analyst for a well known tech company since graduation (two years ago). Promoted once (quicker than average) but don't manage any people. My reviews have been excellent and I feel confident that I'll receive awesome recommendations.

Extracurriculars:

Have taught Sunday school for the past four years. I'm also involved with an organization that provides mentorship for community college students with disadvantaged backgrounds. I've worked with the organization for the past two years (not as a mentor) and currently hold a leadership position.

Post-MBA goals:

I'm looking for schools with strong general management programs. Would love to work in product management for a tech company after b-school.

Schools:

Yale SOM, Johnson, Ross, Marshall, Anderson, McCombs. I'd like to work in California or Texas (Austin) after graduation.

Any feedback would be helpful. Thank you!
