Gday everyone

Can you please evaluate my profile:

- Vietnamese nationality, studying in Australia
- Full scholarship from Australian govn for 4 years studying at uni
- Final year student (graduate on Dec 2006): Sydney University, Bachelor of Agricultural Economics, majors: Economics and Finance
- Average mark of about 81%, expected first class honour (rank of 1 to 3 in class of 60)
- Dean list, University undergrad scholarship, Dean's scholarship for Excellence, Golden Key member
- GMAT: Did not do the test, but expect the mark of 700+
- Leadership: Vice president for Vietnamese Dynamic Students - official intl Vnese students in NSW , about 1000 members. organizer of 3 main events for the group with 600+ participants
- Internships: 2 internships (2 months each) in Vietnamese companies in Hanoi

I would like to apply for Harvard, UCLA and Rochester (3 unis with less emphasize on work experience)

Also, because I lack work experience, I plan to apply for some alternatives:

- M Fin: Princeton
- MS Fin: Vanderbilt
- M Fin Econ: U of Toronto
- PhD in Finc: Yale (scholarship)
- PhD in Finc: Cornell (scholarship)
- Master of Music Business : NYU (Personal interest)

Could you advise me the chance of admission at these universities? Is there any other schools I should go for?

Thank you in advance. I hope to hear from you soon.

Minh Bui

P.s: Guys, if you have any info to do with my case, please reply. Really appreciate!

I don't know enough about you to comment on your chances at specific schools, but you'll need a really good reason for why yo uwant an MBA *now* if you want to get in. An example might be how you want to return to run a family business or something entrepreneurial like that.

One other program to consider is McCombs' Jump Start program. It gives you the chance to get three years of work experience AND get an MBA from a top school.

Dear quixx23, thanks for your reply

Yes I want to run my family business after graduation. My family has 2 companies back in Vietnam. But I dont know how to put it in my application and convince them that I dont make that up :lol:

The McCombs' Jump Start program is interesting but I dont think they let me do it cuz I'm international student. I think U need to be US P.R. or citizen

Just write about it passionately! No one will think it's made up.
