I'd love to hear your opinion on my profile.
28 year old strategy consultant in a boutique growth strategy and innovation consultancy in London. Previously worked for 4+ years in the advertising industry in London including 9 month placement in Paris. Will have 6 years experience at matriculation. Fast progression with four promotions in five years.
GMAT: 700, V43 Q43. Second time taken (first score was 640). Resitting in 2 weeks, hope to make it to 70% in my quant.
Studied at the University of Edinburgh, First Class degree (70%+ average) in French and European History, graduated 2007. Distinction in Spoken French. Exchange programme with the Universite de Franche-Comte, France.
Extra-curriculars: longstanding involvement in modern dance societies, volunteer manager at local community arts festival. More recently I have volunteered in reading programmes with primary school children and employability skills workshops with older kids.
Target: R3 INSEAD Jan 14. If unsuccessful will target Stern, Columbia, UCLA for R2 2014-15.
Post MBA I hope to work in a senior strategy role in media.
If you get the quant up, you would have a competitive profile for INSEAD. With that higher quant, you would also have a shot at Stern, CBS, and UCLA. You may also want to consider USC Marshall .
