Profile Evaluation Request - Advice for Future [#permalink] New post 31 Aug 2011, 18:30

I'm hoping to get some information on where I stand in terms my strength as an applicant. I will not be applying for another 2-3 years and am consequently also looking for advice about what I should be doing over the next few years to strengthen my application.

My stats:
- GMAT: 790 (Q51, V49)

- Undergraduate GPA: 3.76 (was enrolled in dual degree program at the University of Pennsylvania)
~ received Bachelor in Science in Engineering in Chemical Engineering
~ received Bachelor in Science in Economics from Wharton undergrad (not sure if the fact that I already have taken a lot of business courses will hurt in applications)

- will begin working at Boston Consulting Group this fall

- during undergrad I was involved in a little community service (taught west Philadelphia children), was VP of the Dean's Advisory Board, and helped found and run (was Treasurer) a student group for Chemical Engineers

I'm shooting for Harvard or Stanford but haven't done too much research on the programs. I know my gmat score will give me a shot, but unfortunately the application process involves more than just a test score. Also, what should I do over the next couple of years to improve my odds? I know that I need to do well at work, but do also need to get involved with community service outside of work?

Appreciate your time. Thanks!

Hi ndn,

You have a very strong candidacy. In some ways the information you have written reminds me of another client we worked with who was accepted into Harvard Business School and Stanford.

I recommend you read this case study, as it should provide insight into the application process: ... ies/case4/

Hope this was of help.
