Could you please help me with a profile evaluation?
I want to apply to Yale SOM, Columbia, NYU and Harvard this year in second round.

26 years old

Bachelor in Economics with concentration in finance from the best business school in Peru. Graduated 13 out of 50 graduates (top 25%).
Graduated in December 2010.

Work experience:
2010-today Senior financial analyst at the biggest PE fund in Peru and one of the biggest in Latam with US$ 727 million of AUM.
Leading analyst in several fund raising, M&A , and extra capital injections processes to the portoflio companies.

Published one paper related to finance and international business in a renowned latin american financial journal

Social chair of the company I work in, in charge of all the integration events, working close with the HR department
In charge (with another senior analyst) of the private equity course teached by the PE fund management in my former undergrad school, also in charge of theaching one class related to capital raising.

Actual member of the executive council and treasurer of a non traditional education NGO in Peru (member since 2010), leading more than 40 people in the organization (all volunteers).

Hi jdiegocarrillo,

Thanks for your post. Your numbers indicate that you have the intellect and focus to thrive in a top tier MBA program. 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 have free school specific advice for the programs you are considering here:

Yale: ... anagement/
Columbia: ... -school-2/

We also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here:
