Hi Paul,

Requesting a review of my profile - thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Asian American female, age 27 at matriculation
GMAT: 720, 95% verbal, 77% quant, taken 2x in 2009

Work Experience
-1/2 year in investment banking - then the markets blew up
-almost 2 years in HR consulting for a boutique firm
-laid off / freelanced for 6 months
-now in a VC-backed health care firm doing sales/marketing/finance, direct revenue generation responsibility. Will have 2+ years here by matriculation

-Top 10 liberal arts school, Poli Sci major, 3.85 GPA
-3 accounting classes, 3-4 econ/finance classes

Extracurricular Activities
-on board for college's alumni committee
-small side business in consulting/blogging/writing*
-Blog manager for a nonprofit organization
*I'm actually not sure how much I should write about my blog activities - as I mostly work and blog under a nom de plume . :wink: But I have done freelance for some good online publications and I have gotten recognition from WSJ, MSN Money, etc. for the blog. It is something I spend 10 hours+ a week on.

Target programs
Tuck, Georgetown, Duke, Darden, Cornell, Ross?

Career Goals
-Interested in either health care consulting (probably more on the provider side than the pharma side) and/or federal consulting. I'd like to find some way to do work that combines the public and private sectors.
-Would like to start out in consulting to develop analytical and general knowledge or maybe even get into the Presidential Management Fellowship. Also interested in rotational programs at big health care companies.

I feel that since I have jumped around so much, I really need a coherent "story" to emphasis why MBA now is the right step and why I NEED an MBA for the next step in my career. Should I focus on one area (either health care OR federal consulting, not both) to make the essay-writing process a little tighter? Also, what do you think of my school list? I prefer the "small school" environment.

Thanks again. I appreciate your advice and input!
