Thanks for the post and REALLY love all the info - makes my job a smidge easier
. So let's see what we've got here.Academics
Average GMAT (when did a 710 become average?!) and really rough GPA but you've taken charge of the situation so that's fantastic. Does it make up for your GPA? Nope, it'll hit the rankings. But you're proactive about it. That won't go unnoticed. Experiences
This will be your saving grace. Some interesting experience coupled with international exposure and jobs across industries and the value chain. We'd have to dig in here to figure out more of the juicy details but at first blush this strikes me as what will have to carry your profileInvolvement
It's great that you're involved and in a professional capacity. It would be interesting to find out what you actually DO as a financial adviser to nonprofits. If there is impact and scope here, you're golden!Goals
I'll be honest, this could use a bit of work. You seem more of a managerial consulting candidate than financial consulting. While you have some finance in your background, I would hardly put you in the camp of financial consulting. But, that said, you ARE a strong consulting candidate.Schools
If you're going consulting, then you have to go top 20. I think the top 7 or 8 will be pretty difficult but maybe throw in an application or two just to see. After all, you only do this once! You're better aligned, however, below #8 or so. You'll also have an easier time at those schools to actually break into consulting too!Our Firm & Services
