Hello,

I’d really appreciate an evaluation of my profile:

Basic:
Age – 24
Caucasian Male

GMAT: 700 – 47Q/39V

Edu:
Graduated 2010 with a BA in Finance from the University of Washington
GPA – 3.4

Work Exp:
- 3 Yrs as a Junior Analyst at a wealth management firm. Assisted in the research and due diligence of mutual funds. Constructed investment portfolios for clients. Client-facing experience.

Extra-Curricular:
- Founded an investment club that strategizes in buying/selling puts/calls to capitalize on market volatility.
- Life enhancement volunteer at a senior home - leading group activities and meeting with residents on bi-weekly basis.
- Member of finance club and other student groups while enrolled in college. Also studied abroad.

Post-MBA:
- Interested in a career in equity research. Would love to work as a buy-side analyst.

Target Schools:
- Tuck, Booth, Stern (any chance?)
- Ross, Mendoza, Minnesota (Carlson)

I’m curious what tier of schools I have a chance at. I would love to be admitted into a top-15 MBA program but am concerned this is out of my reach.

Also, would teaching English abroad for a year improve my profile? It’s not really related to finance/business but I’m interested in doing it.

Any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

international experience is always a plus and so teaching abroad can help a TGW (typical white guy) stand out indeed. Your core credentials are fine, but it is hard to stand out in the caucasian male finance bucket, so i think you may be on to something by trying to make your profile a bit more interesting by travelling abroad to "give back" to others.
