Everyone, thanks in advance for your feedback!
- Ed

1) Work experience: 6 years at major Canadian pension company. I’ve worked in 8 departments during this time (including a rotational program) - experiencing broad and (quite) privileged exposure to different aspects of the industry/company. Currently senior researcher for global investment portfolio team (portfolio AUM is >$20 billion).
2) GMAT: 730
3) Schooling: Top Canadian university (U of Toronto/Queen's/McGill); GPA=3.4/4.3, 2007 graduation. I take full responsibility for my mediocre grades.
4) Extra-curriculars: university (rowing, study abroad program in South Africa - volunteered in townships); after graduation (improv classes; volunteering for youth mentoring program; started intra-company group for young employees to network and discuss various business issues). Have read 110 books over last 2 years.
5) Designations: CFA
6) Target programs: Harvard, Wharton, Columbia
7) Applying when: R1 2013 (2014 admission)
8) Post-MBA goals: Work for a prominent hedge fund. A friend/colleague at that hedge fund has written a letter of recommendation for me.

Other: Both of my letters of recommendation are pretty solid. I’m a good essay writer. To cut to the chase, I have a pretty stereotypical - one might say unremarkable - profile, but I think my rapid career advancement (and hedge fund letter of recommendation) and character (which stands out in my other letters of recommendation) set me apart. I’m more than happy to elaborate on anything further. Please be brutally honest in your assessment.
