I'd be interested in getting your thoughts on my profile - i've already begun the application process, but still.
I'm a Korean American male (born/raised in the US). A business major undergrad from wharton. Graduated with a 3.6 GPA. Worked in New York for what will be 7 years at the time of matriculation for a mid-tier investment bank (on the equity research side). I'll be 28 come the start of B-school.
GMAT = 730 (weighted heavily towards verbal)
Not a lot of ECs - attributing that to the realities of a heavy wall street workload. Should have solid recommendations and essays (but that's obviously subjective).
HBS/Stanford - doable? Sterns/Columbia/UCLA?
thanks for any comments.
Just my opinion, take it with a grain of salt as I'm not an expert:
Stern/UCLA - Safeties
Columbia, Wharton, Chicago, Kellogg, MIT - You should get into a couple if not more
Harvard, Stanford - Reaches but definitely worth a shot
The Wharton undergrad and 730 should take you very far. It's rare to see Wharton undergrads land outside of the Top 10/Top 15.
