First attempt this past weekend - 710 (Q50, V36). Undergrad
Plan to retake to try and up my verbal, but it's never been my strong suit so I'm just hoping for maybe just a 730.
Top 10 liberal arts collegeWork Experience
Dual major in mathematics and economics
Varsity tennis team (DIII)
I've been with a large consulting firm in DC for the past 3 years working on Department of Defense contracts.Extracurriculars
For the past two years, I've worked on the same contract where the team is essentially only the project manager and myself. I've had the opportunity to take on a great deal of responsibility, but I can't claim to have supervised employees (besides the odd junior staffer who has assisted for a month or so).
On the plus side, I'm confident that the project manager will write me a stellar letter of rec because we've formed a close bond.
I'm on a women's USTA tennis league (I played tennis in high school and college). Target schools
I've recently started volunteering at a soup kitchen serving breakfast to homeless men and women a couple times a month before work.
I've participated in various community service events through my work, but nothing out of the ordinary.
Kellogg, Booth, Wharton and Darden.
I plan to concentrate on corporate strategy.
A unique aspect of my application is the summer between college and starting my job, my dad ran for office in the state legislature. I had the opportunity to essentially lead the campaign and think I will be able to get an interesting essay out of it. I know it was my dad, but it was a legit operation. We had a team of volunteers and I played the role of jack-of-all-trades - creating the literature, planning the door knocking and phone banking efforts, organizing meet and greets, etc.
What do you think of my list of schools? Any suggestions? Thank you!!
