Profile Evaluation Request [#permalink] New post 15 Oct 2012, 08:34
Hello,

Can I please get a profile evaluation? I'm worried my non-name undergrad and age at application (will be 28) will make things difficult for me. Thanks in advance!

Requested:
1) Brief description of your full-time work experience.
2) Your GMAT.
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.
4) Significant college and post-college extra-curricular activities or community service, especially leadership experience.
5) Important certifications like CFA, CPA, FSA, or CA.
6) Your target programs.
7) Your post-MBA goal.

Responses:
1) 27 y/o white male - grew up on a farm in the midwest. 2.5 years of Big 4 Accounting (Audit, promoted to Senior Associate), networked like crazy to get to M&A at a top middle market investment bank (Baird, HW&Co., Piper Jaffray) and spent 2.5 years there, will have 2 years of middle market private equity experience ($1 billion fund, currently only a few months in). Top rankings at each and should be able to get very good recs from partners/founders.
2) Will be taking soon - shooting for 720+ based on practice exams
3) Lower tier (100 - 200 ranking on US News) state school, 4.0 GPA, triple major in Econ, Accounting, and Finance, graduated in 2007.
4) One year of varsity football (walk-on), officer of student investment fund and member of several clubs in college. After college, was a board member of non-profit with ~$3 million budget and member of a special committee that led a merger with another major non-profit. Other volunteer work with United Way.
5) CPA
6) Reach: Harvard, Stanford, Wharton. Target: Kellog, Booth, Columbia, Tuck. Others: Not sure - maybe Haas, Yale
7) Transition away from standard LBO into growth equity, with a particular focus on consumer businesses in emerging markets.

I agree with your assessment. You've chosen your schools well given your goals. You may also want to consider Ross. I suggest you apply to 1-2 from the reach, 3 from the target, and 2 from the "others."

If you would like help with your MBA application, please let me know.

Best,
Linda
