Background: Southeast Asian, 24yo

GPA: 3.80 out of 4.00, Financial Mathematics, Top Philippine University

GMAT: 770 (Q51, V44), 6.0 AWA

Other Qualifications: Passed all 3 CFA Examinations on the first attempt, aiming to receive charter prior to matriculation

Work Experience:
- Associate in Capital Markets in Singapore for 1.5 years in a UK commercial bank, covering Southeast Asia and Korea
- Analyst in Philippine office of the same bank for 2 years, with experience in Capital Markets and Financial Market Sales

Extra Curriculars:
- Actively involved in college events and alumni association
- Performed outreach activities to urban poor villages and communities during college
- Engaged in setting up a few startups with friends but still in gestation stage (~4 months)
- Helping fund education of the grandchildren of our housemaid in the province

Goals Post MBA:
- Long term goal to continue entrepreneurial activities, with a focus on devising new business models that address Southeast Asia's unique business landscape
- Medium term goal to improve technical skills and business sense via roles in PE/VC. If markets remain tough, may consider Consulting or Business Development roles in MNCs with a significant presence in Asia

Target Schools:
- HBS, Wharton, MIT-Sloan, Chicago Booth, Columbia
- Aiming for Round 2 applications

Key Concerns:
- Understand that my profile (iBanking going into PE/VC) may be a bit overrepresented so would like to request a fresh perspective on how to set myself apart from the mob
- Would also appreciate input on my list of schools and whether I should amend

Look forward to hearing from you soon!
