Any insight/advice/comments would be very appreciated!
GMAT 660 (42Q, 38V, 6AWA)
Undergrad GPA 3.4 from State School (upward trending over 4 years)
Finance Major (3.6 Major GPA)
3.5 Years Commercial Banking
2.5 Years Investment Management
Passed CFA Level II Exam, CAIA Charter Holder
Extra Curriculars: Treasurer of non-profit ($7mm in assets, so decent size, lead M&A negotiations with similar non-profit), Finance Committee of another non-profit (about the same size), Rotarian, Junior Achievment Economics program for local elementary school, volunteer at many other charities/non profits, active in a lot of sports (Tough Mudder
), traveled (although by no means worldly). Extra curriculars while in College were probably more than now (if that matters).
Recs: I think they will be really impressive - I know everyone says that, but they will be from very senior/well respected people in the IM field.
Long term career goal: Stay in IM (likely) or transition to PE post MBA (not as likely)
These are the schools I plan on applying to:
BU or BC (not sure yet)
So do I have a shot at these? Any other schools that should be on my list? Will my GMAT hold me back? Will my GMAT Quant score be a deal breaker for these schools even though I have done very well in all my undergrad math courses, work in a quantitative field, and have been studying for the CFA? Thanks!!!
