Hi, I'd love any feedback!
3.16 from top 30 liberal arts in America, economics degree. 27 at matriculation, white, American.
5 years at matriculation. My strongest point by far. I do corporate sales of enterprise software for an F100 company and have been in a client facing role from day 1-I finished in the top 10% of sales reps nationwide (while being considerably younger) for my first three years. Each of the three years have been north of $70 million in sales. Will be able to get glowing recommendations from this.
Taking in May. Testing between 670 and 730. Shooting for the upper end, obviously, but let's say 700 as a guesstimate.
Marathon runner, volunteer as a tutor and have worked with special needs kids in the past, frat member in college...nothing too out of the ordinary, but fair work
To launch a digital health software startup. Need a better understanding of logistics, healthcare delivery systems (on provider side), and corporate finance to be able to be well versed for doing it. Very passionate about health & wellness.
One side note-I believe I interview fairly well. Not meant in a cocky manner, but my job has made me very easy with public speaking, meeting new people, and remaining calm.
HBS (major stretch, I know)
MIT (another big stretch...)
If I don't get into a top 25, I'll likely do part time
Any thoughts are HUGELY APPRECIATED
Hey there good sir,
Allright let's get started!
So your work experience seems awesome. Fantastic results are the most important thing, be they individual or team results. The other two really helpful items are: 1) Leadership 2) Promotions. So if you have any of that, let me know, and how much and so on.
Obviously your GMAT will play a huuuuuuuuge role, but there's no point in talking about that till you get it. Just come back with the highest score you can, and be prepared to retake if things don't go as well as you hope. For you, I should say though that getting a high GMAT is more important than for others, given that your GPA is on the low side, especially for HBS/MIT/Tuck/Booth. Prove to them that you are capable of academic awesomeness by beating the heck out of that GMAT, and things will change.
The one thing in your profile that so far doesn't make aaaaaaaaall that much sense is your goals. You come from sales but want to launch a digital health software startup? Where does this come from? How can you prove that you would be successful? Why do you want to do this? I'm not saying these goals can't work, but I don't yet see it, and it's something you might want to think about.
Other than that, best of luck on your GMAT, and let me know how you do when you get that score.
