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.

Sounds like you have the makings of a compelling application to your target schools. It's not that the healthcare schools are more selective, it's just that they get more applications from healthcare folks, so you will have to put some extra thought into how you stand out amongst others with similar or even more compelling medical backgrounds. You probably know that the healthcare industry is a very selective and difficult industry to crack, so it will be a real advantage that you have working experience in the field already. This will help you bode better than applicants who aspire to a healthcare consulting career, but have zero background in the industry. Top 10 UG is a real plus and you had a good GPA, which will look great coupled with your great GMAT. Make sure you can speak passionately about why you like healthcare industry and why you like consulting. It's in the why that you can separate yourself from the pack.
