Hi, Can you please evaluate my profile? I'm looking at the following schools: Stanford, Harvard, Wharton, Chicago, Columbia.
-25 years old, US citizen, Asian but not Chinese/Korean/Japanese
-Grew up sparingly in a mostly hispanic/low-income community (first one to ever get into an Ivy from my high school)
-760-780 GMAT (95%+ on both sections)
-3.5-3.6 GPA in a hard science from non-HYP Ivy
4 years of work exp at matriculation:
-2 years at top non-MBB consulting firm (top 10-15 feeder at Harvard and Wharton)
-Prior to that, 2 years at very small consulting firm where I got some rapidly increasing responsibilities by dint of it being so small. I established many processes at that company that they still use today. My recommendations can confirm this.
EC’s: In college, senior editor of new publication (led recruiting process for my section of the journal). Post-college, tutor reading/English to an African immigrant, also do volunteer mentoring for immigrants seeking jobs.
My goal is to gain management and finance experience so that I can to enter the financial services industry and do internal strategy.
