White Male 24 y/o, will be 25 when I apply for MBS start date in 2009
By then I would have had 4 years work experience, 2 in IB and 2 at a large PE firm
760 GMAT (49M, 45V)
3.5 GPA (graduated with high honors from top 3 undergrad US, 3.9 in my major if you are wondering how a 3.5 is high honors)
I think overall that one area I need to improve on is community activities; which is difficult considering the profession in which I am currently employed. (It is hard to become involved when you are working long hours!!!)
Anyways, thinking about H/S/W, Chicago, Columbia and Northwestern. Am I missing any or should I narrow down at all?
You look like you may have some of the credentials to aim for these 'ultra-elites' but don't take the community involvement piece lightly. The top schools will look for leadership there. You didn't mention post-MBA goals so I can't comment on which schools to add to your list.
