Hello,

Long time reader, first time poster. This is a great forum and I'm looking forward to getting some advice from all of the helpful people here. If you could evaluate my profile, that would be great. Thanks.

Education - 3.45 GPA from top 10 undergrad business school on east coast. Major in Accounting. CPA.

Work Experience - 4 years at matriculation of big 4 audit experience on the east coast with a focus in Healthcare, specifically working on the provider/hospital side.

GMAT: 700 (Q45 V40)

EC's: Working on the committee of an organization focused on special needs individuals. Additionally, part of a local committee healthcare organization that conducts seminars on accounting/revenue reimbursement specific to the healthcare industry. United way and Junior Achievement Volunteer.

Post MBA: I would like to get my MBA to make the transition to Management Consulting focusing in the healthcare industry, specifically on the payer/provider side. I would like to use this consulting experience to eventually work at an high level position at a hospital.

I am looking at Yale, Wharton, Northwestern, Harvard, Booth, Ross, and Fuqua. I would like to get into a school where I can focus on management/strategy as well as healthcare management.

Do I have a chance at any of these schools? For schools that offer a Healthcare program, are these generally more selective, or does it bring a form of uniqueness to my resume. Many thanks for your evaluations.

Quoting Sandy, not a lot of non-URM Big 4 make it to Harvard, so just be aware of that. You're a strong profile at every other school you mentioned, and if you execute well, you should get multiple admits from your list. I've not done any research on HSM, but heard some conversation about it during my visit to Fuqua. I don't believe it's more rigorous to get into those programs beyond the difficulty of the school in general.

Reach out to alums, do your research, visit schools, etc. All the stock advice will help you craft phenomenal essays, and you'll be sitting pretty this time next year.

Good luck!
