Profile Evaluation Request [#permalink] New post 07 Jun 2013, 23:38
Hi --

I'm looking to get some feedback on the competitiveness of my profile. I'm in a cohort that I would imagine is fairly common, so I'm just curious to hear some thoughts on if this profile is competitive and if there is differentiation. I'm looking at HBS, Stanford, and Kellogg.

24 year old, White, Male

Education: University of Notre Dame, 3.8 GPA, Economics
- Side Note: I was denied 3 times before finally getting into ND (transferred in as a junior). I think it is a good adversity story, especially considering that I was successful when I finally did get into ND.

GMAT: 710

Job: Strategy Consultant at PwC, 2 years (would be 36 months work experience upon matriculation)
- I also had an internship in Sydney, Australia for 3 months in college. The internship was for an international trade non-profit.

Extra-curricular activities:
- Tournament Director of Tier 1 college bowling tournament (1 of 2 largest collegiate bowling tournaments in the world, with 130 teams from 70 schools). Generated over $80k in revenue and $25k in profit through running the tournament.
- Pro bono consulting work with companies in El Salvador (virtual projects). Act as Team Lead.
- (college) Founder of Consulting Club at ND. Club is now one of the most popular clubs on campus.
- (college) Captain on Bowling Team -- 3 time Academic All American

Post MBA Goal: Continue consulting with one of the big 3 strategy firms (MBB). Long term goal is to set up a non-profit foundation to provide consulting services in developing countries (similar to the pro bono projects I'm doing on the side of client work now).

Thanks!

For Kellogg, I would really recommend an additional year of work experience. You have a shot at these three program in terms of stats and work experience. However, these are among the most difficult to get into. You should also consider programs like Ross, Darden, and Duke.

Best,
Linda
