Hi,

I would be very happy if you could please evaluate my profile:
[*]Male, 26 years old, Norwegian citizen
[*]Undergraduate degree in Economics and Business Administration from a Norwegian business school, with B average, concidered "honors" in Norway. A in both mathematics and statistics. Exchange semester at University of Washington with 3.7 GPA
[*]MA in Economics from UC Santa Barbara with 3.8 GPA, inlcuding an A in econometrics
[*]GMAT score: 710 (93%), 45 quant (68%), 41 verbal (92%). As non-native speaker, very happy with the verbal score, disappointed with the quant score (have scored 770/800 on the GRE quant), but will not retake (hope that my quant abilities will evident elsewhere in the application). Awaiting AWA and IR scores.
[*]Now have two years of professional work experience at a Nordic Bank. I Work in the Investment Banking division of the bank with focus on M&A and LBO transactions as an analyst. Will have three years of experience when I start my MBA (fall 2014)
[*]Have little extracurricular activities
[*]Post-MBA goals: switch from IB to consulting (McKinsey, Bain, etc)
[*]Applying for 2014 entry (R1) and am concidering the following schools:

Oxford
Cambridge
LBS

You are a competitive applicant to Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, and Cornell. Kellogg, HBS, and Stanford are stretch programs, but you probably knew that. I also still think it pays for you to apply. Cornell's accelerated program is aimed at people with technical advanced degrees, not necessarily business backgrounds. Before applying make sure that you fit the accelerated program's criteria.

Best,
Linda
