Profile Evaluation - Public Sector [#permalink] New post 31 Jul 2012, 06:09
Please find my profile below. I really appreciate your help in evaluating my chances of getting into these programs!

1) 25 year old Caucasian male. In my third year as a government consultant at PwC. Work on program management and strategic planning projects for Department of Defense Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury programs. Started at PwC out of college as an Associate and recently promoted to Senior Associate.
2) 750 GMAT (49Q, 42V)
3) Graduated from UNC - Chapel Hill in 2009, double major in Political Science and English, 3.54 GPA. Studied abroad in Madrid (all coursework in Spanish).
4) President and founding member of a 35 member fraternity (Vice President and Philanthropy Chair prior to that). Interned for a US Congresswoman for 6 months in high school. Mentor KIPP students applying to college and Washington Tennis and Education Foundation students. Volunteer at various work community service events (Veterans Wheelchair Games, USO Care Packaging, Soup Kitchens, etc.). Club tennis member in college.
5) Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), plan to get PMP
6) HBS, Wharton, Tuck, Sloan, Booth, Darden, Fuqua, Kellogg. Considering applying for MBA/MPP dual-degree with HKS--does this hurt, help, or have no effect on MBA admissions chances?
7) Short-term: work for a leading strategy consulting firm to learn best practices among public sector and commercial clients. Long-term: transition to management role in public sector and use business knowledge and skills to improve government organizations

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!!!!!

You have an impressive profile. I think you are applying appropriately and have chosen your schools wisely.

Applying to the joint program with HKS does not affect your MBA admissions chances. You may also want to consider the joint program between Wharton and SAIS, if you are interested in the public sector on an international scale.

If you would like help with your applications, please keep Accepted in mind.
