Profile Review [#permalink] New post 02 Jul 2013, 07:30
Hello,

Your feedback on my profile would be greatly appreciated. Trying to determine where I stand with top tier schools and where I should be aiming realistically. I'm looking to apply for a fall of 2014 start date, so by then I would be 27 with 4 years of experience. Thanks!

Background:
-26-year old Asian male
-700 GMAT based on practice test
-B.S. in Environmental Chemical Engineering with 3.1 GPA, but 3.6 GPA in final 2 years
-Graduated from reputable engineering/sciences school in Northeast (WPI)
-3 years working experience

Work experience:

-Worked 2 years in a global operations leadership development program for Fortune 400 manufacturing company. First year as an internal global operations consultant, traveling to manufacturing sites in China, East Asia, Central America, and Europe working on operations excellence, process improvement/six sigma, and cost reduction projects. 2nd year I worked in supply chain and product management.

-Currently work for an online retailer/Fortune 100 company in category management, making strategic sourcing decisions, developing product merchandising strategies and negotiating with suppliers. I have been with the company 9 months and have already delivered great results, and have been recognized as a future leader by multiple senior VP’s. I would be able to get strong recommendations at the SVP level of both my company and external suppliers, as well as my current manager, who is a Wharton alum with 4-5 years at McKinsey

Career goals:

Short-term: Management consulting and corporate strategy

Long-term: International business development and global growth strategy for a CPG/ecommerce company trying to break grounds internationally – creating a global brand presence, launching retail stores/products/websites into new markets

Extracurriculars:

-Traveling, blogging, photography, cooking, music/guitar/songwriting, basketball
-President of Korean Student Association (through college)
-VP Operations student government (college)
-VP Christian Bible Fellowship (college)
-Active in Church outreach, including missions trips, soup kitchens, charity fundraisers, helping in-need urban youth
-Active leadership roles at current church, including worship team leader, mid-week bible study leader, youth Sunday School teacher

Assuming you end up with a 700 GMAT, Northwestern and Haas would be a stretch. The other programs on your list are more realistic and well-suited to your goal. You may also want to consider Darden.

Best,
