Profile Evaluation Request [#permalink] New post 26 Jul 2011, 19:21
Hi Linda,

I'd appreciate your time in evaluating my profile please (details below):

1) Brief description of your full-time work experience.
I'm presently a Senior Assistant Director with 8 years as a policymaker on aviation matters with the government; concurrently a senior military officer with 6+ years in various leadership appointments

2) Your GMAT:
660 (Q47 V34); 660 (Q44 V39)

3) College info: The name of the college, your GPA or grade average, your major, year of graduation. For any graduate degrees, please provide the same info. If you grades are low, please indicate if there were extenuating circumstances:
Graduated in 2003 from University College London with First Class Honours in Economics (GPA >3.6 equivalent). I took several quantitative modules (e.g. mathematics, econometrics) in College, and achieved A/B exam grades in them. Would this help to offset my weak Quant GMAT score?

4) Significant college and post-college extra-curricular activities or community service, especially leadership experience:
Chairman of both a UK-wide student body organisation and student body organisation in University College London
Conferred President's Scout Award in 1998 (highest award in Scouting locally)
Assistant Scout Leader for a local Secondary School (US High School equivalent)
Held various leadership appointments and garnered several awards for achievements and service in various extra-curricular activities such as Scouting, Swimming

5) Important certifications like CFA, CPA, FSA, or CA:
Nil

6) Your target programs:
INSEAD MBA, London Business School MBA, MIT Sloan Fellows Programme, Stanford Sloan Fellows Programme

7) Your post-MBA goal:
I'll continue to work in the government sector after my MBA, and hope to instill business thinking in the organisation to reshape / develop more pro-enterprise and innovative public policies etc.

Thanks much in advance!

You sound like you're making good choices. As a "policy maker" your interpersonal skills will probably be simple to demonstrate. Do try to integrate the analyses that you conduct as well to highlight that aspect of your application. The 660 GMAT is on the low end but it is not impossible for these programs. If you think that you could boost the score, it makes sense to try to do so for LBS (INSEAD, I believe, may combine your Q47 with your V39 even though they are from different test dates). Your essays are going to be critical to convince the admissions committees that you have something truly unique to add to their programs, so make good use of them!
