Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I am looking to apply in round 2 and was hoping you could review my profile.
My stats: 25 at matriculation with 32 months of full time WE (government mgmt consulting) - just switched companies over the summer for a promotion/more responsibilities
700 GMAT (95% V, 67% Q) - low quant, but since I did well in calculus, statistics, and finances courses, perhaps they may give me a break
3.3 cumulative GPA (Econ major) from private Top 20 (I think my final 2 years was around 3.2ish). Transfered from a state university with a 4.0 my freshman year, but I'm not sure if adcoms will take that into consideration.
Didn't get involved with anything during my undergrad unfortunately, but I picked up the slack post-graduation by volunteering to do some college career counseling, volunteering at the Make A Wish Foundation, and I hold a couple of chair positions on my local alumni board
I have good reviews from my employers will be able to get solid recs from them as well, although it might be hard to swing a rec from my current manager since I just started.
I would like to get into i-banking (energy industry) post-MBA in order to gain some transactional/valuation experience before getting a team together and take over a company. I figure I could use the i-banking experience to add value to a small/medium-sized company that is looking to expand via acquisitions.
A little bit more about myself...I've lived on three different continents and worked for a summer in Abu Dhabi for a PE firm. Will being "cultured" (for lack of a better word) help potentially?
My list of possible schools includes the following:
Yale NYU Columbia Ross Darden Chicago
Since I'm going to be a career changer, will the schools on my list be accommodating or will some look down on this? Do you think I have a shot at all this year or will I need to wait? Thanks
