I would be very grateful for a profile review
. My details are as follows:
Undergrad major: Politics
GPA: 1st in UK standards, I have seen this translated as 4.0 but not sure.
GMAT: 740 (48Quant, 44Verbal)
Current role: Fund Accountant for a boutique Private Equity Fund. Been in role for 1 year, have full responsibility for accounting for a number of funds and in charge of 1 other person.
Previous experience: 3 years auditing (not at a big four though), where I also qualified with ACCA (first time passes for all exams). This was my first job straight out of university and I moved to my current role immediately upon finishing my ACCA.
Extra curricular activities: Nothing to note at since University really as have always been studying (ACCA, then GMAT, now taking French classes). At University was an elected committee member of the Student Radio Station and played intramural golf. If I am allowed to go back further I was golf captain of my school and junior captain of my local golf club.
Goals: I want to continue to work in Private Equity but move away from accounting and work in the investment side of things.
Schools: If possible I am looking at top 10, and suppose the schools that are more finance oriented would make the most sense so Columbia, Wharton, etc would be a dream. I am quite early in my decision making at this point though.
