Hey guys- Thanks so much for helping monkeys like me out
24/Asian/Male - plan on applying for the fall of 2014
1) Work Experience
I Spent 1 year doing an education-based Americorps program in a mid-sized city in the South. I am currently working as a junior researcher for a research institute that studies education and is affiliated with a large, reputable research university. My job primarily consists of doing statistical analyses (ie cleaning data, regression analysis, and a bit of mapping). I have been at my job for 1.5 years. Also, before my Americorps year, I spent three months at a large internationally focused NGO.
730 (q48 v42). I also took the GRE and scored a 1410 (q800 v610)
Top 10 LAC. Majored in math and economics and graduated with a 3.4 out of 4.
In college I was President of Model UN and I tutored students at a local middle school twice a week. I currently am on the alumni board of the Americorps organization I worked for. Also hope to start tutoring students on weekends.
5) Target Programs
Best school I can get into - Maybe Wharton/Columbia/Chicago
6) Post MBA goals
I could lie and say I know want to do, but for right now I am unsure(obviously I would have a tighter story when I actually apply). Maybe transition to economic consulting.
