Request Profile Evaluation [#permalink] New post 06 Nov 2012, 07:29
Hi,

Would request you to kindly evaluate my profile and recommend which schools I should target based on my profile and aspirations:

Demographics - Indian/Female

Education - Bachelor of Commerce

Chartered Accountant

Work Ex -
1. Worked in Investment Banking for a year right after college. Handled some excellent deals and transactions.

2. Currently working as a strategy consultant with one of the local firms.

Leadership - Had trained analysts in IB role.

GMAT
4) 740 - VA 41, QA 49

I am targeting schools in US and would want to carve out my career in Management/Strategy Consulting.

Currently sent my scores to [b]Harvard, Stanford, MIT Sloan, Tuck & Darden
. I am looking to add only a couple of more schools to the application kitty as I cannot inundate my supervisors with too many recommendation requests in such a short time-frame (since Indian, will have to submit most apps by Jan and would not want to wait another year for an MBA).

Would really appreciate your 2 cents on this. Thanks!

Miraclekid,

Impressive. You have a competitive profile for your target programs and have chosen them well although the competition at the first 4 makes them very hard to get into. You may also want to consider Ross, Cornell Johnson, and Yale. I'm listing here schools that are slightly easier to get into, but still supportive of your goals.

Best,
Linda
