Hi Maria,

Thanks for investing your time and effort in such a great product. I was hoping to get your thoughts on my profile as well as any tips/suggestion as I approach applications this coming summer.

Age: 25
Demographics: US citizen, Asian-american
GMAT: 760 (49Q, 45V)
Undergrad: 3.8 GPA at a top 20 US college (non-ivy)
Work experience: 4 years by R1 2020, 5 years at matriculation
Work background: 3 years as a equity research associate in asset management (well-known brand), 0.5 years on the corporate strategy team of the same company (a top tier investment bank) where we execute top priority projects for the CEO. I view my experience as an outside shareholder/investor as very complementary to my current experience of high-level strategic thinking from the inside of a company. Earned 1 promotion (to associate) so far.

Extracurriculars: president of two college professional clubs (microfinance, int'l business), matched in a formal mentoring program (paired with one kid) after I started working, led intern recruiting on my old work team, VP of college fraternity

Schools: Booth, HBS, Wharton, CBS, Sloan, Kellogg, Tuck (leaning towards Booth the most right now, Tuck probably the least preferred with HBS the reach)
ST Goals: Management consulting, restructuring / turnaround consulting with an aim to gain cross-sector operating/transformational experience
LT Goals: Build a diverse and complementary set of experiences to allow me to become an effective operator (business operations, business development) at a company (or to help me start my own company)

Recs: 1 very strong from one of my bosses on old team; either 1 very strong from director of research of old team (providing a different perspective on my intangibles) or 1 above average from manager of new team (not necessarily working with them on all projects)

Would appreciate your thoughts on my candidacy as well as a decision on rec letter strategy (e.g. who to ask from), as well as any additional color to help me understand how to best prioritize the next ~half year leading up to application season.
