Evaluation: 740 and unique background for S16 [#permalink] New post 25 Jul 2014, 07:15
Hi guys,

Thank you in advance for evaluating my profile.
BA in English Literature from an elite liberal art university in China.

3.41 GPA, GMAT 740 (Q49 V41 IR7 AWA 3.5 the awa is low, made an error in exam)

Some highlights of my 3 years of working experience (4 years at matriculation)

The media are in turmoil. I kind of helped China's most important news organization to better cope with the industrial transformation.

1. Youngest recipient of China's highest-level annual journalism award because, in the first month of my job, I designed a system for my team to monitor breaking events on social media

2. Help founding our agency's social media operation


3. Help improve the financial coverage of our office

Hello,

Your work background is both very interesting and impressive in terms of achievement and impact, will likely be valued to top MBA adcoms. I believe you’re on target with your list of schools; they are all reasonable reaches of varying degrees, with UCLA closer to on-par.

I do not think the AWA will be much of a factor, given your educational and professional background. It’s not something the adcoms focus on if they are otherwise comfortable with your verbal skills. It comes into play more when they are already having questions or doubts about an applicant’s verbal abilities.

Good luck! Since you have time before you apply, I suggest in the meantime (a) maintaining your strong work track record (but stay safe!) and (b) researching more about your goals, i.e., types of organizations, types of roles, etc., so that you can write in a very informed way about what you plan to do and why (short-term especially).
