Hi,

Thanks in advance for your review; my stats are as follows:

Work Experience: Have spent about 2.5 years in head office strategy for a top Canadian financial institution (brand name, at least here in Canada). My performance reviews have been very strong and I've been promoted once since joining.

GRE Score: 165Q (92%); 163V (91%); 4.5AWA (72%) (conversions suggest my composite score would be about a 720+ GMAT)

Undergrad: 3.9 GPA, Honours Bachelor of Commerce (B.Comm) graduate (2010) from a small, but mostly well regarded Canadian university

Extra-Curriculars: Was very involved during undergrad (student government, student newspaper, etc.), but have no volunteer extra-curricular experience since graduating (my application will discuss unassigned projects I've taken on at work, and recreational athletics I play outside of the office). In short, I haven't done much outside the office since graduating, so I suspect this is my weakest point?

Target Programs: Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Tuck, Yale, Kellogg, Columbia, Duke, Cornell

Application Cycle: R2 for September 2014 intake (ideally)

Post-MBA Goal: Return to my current organization, in a more senior role.

It would be great to hear which schools I should be targeting, and with what likelihood of success (reach, within range, safety). Any feedback regarding weak points that I should consider shoring up, or if I should consider applying a year later to shore up weak points would be appreciated.

Hi,

Your GPA and GRE looks fine. I am concerned about your work experience for H/S/W, Yale and Columbia. Also I can't find much about headship or leadership qualities in your profile. Kellogg, Duke, Tuck and Cornell should be within your reach. You can try your chances in other b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool

Let me hear in case of other concerns you might have.

Cheers!!

Steve,

Your profile seems to be tame, at least from the information given, and you would need to make a strong case to gain acceptance into the schools you have listed.
Best to look at schools once you have given your GMAT. Upon receiving a GMAT score, we can look at your resume and your story and weed out some leadership stories that I'm sure are present but not quite evident to you. We can then evaluate what schools would fit you best!

Best wishes on your B-School journey.

Cheers,
Ash
