Hello,

Im a 27 y/o Bangladesh Male. I am looking to shortlist schools for MBA.
The most important thing for me is - scholarship /funding. My profile and other relevant info goes below.

Thanks in advance-
Jamil

4. Management Trainee, Technology- 10 Months

Education:
1. Bsc. in EEE , BUET , CGPA 3.73
2. GRE - 331, Q-167, V-164 ( both 94 percentile)
3. TOEFL: 116

Focus Area from MBA:
1. Marketing Analytics
2. Entrepreneurship & Innovation
3. Business Analytics
4. Corporate Strategy

Career Goals:
1. Entrepreneurship
2. Technology consultancy for emerging markets

Interest:
1. Football & Badminton - played for University team
2. Social Problem solving- founding member of Shikhkha - a non profit that makes free lab equipment for village kids and takes classes.

Unique Anecdote:

Did not accept because I wanted to start my business. Tried setting up a GRE teaching platform in local language. Did not fly.
Since then, I have tried 2 ecommerce shops selling Essential Oils in USA and another selling pet accessories in Australia. They are still operational.

I like the one word that describes you dude :)
It's a good thing.


So first a question: What happened in the last two years? I mean: How successful were you? I think this will be key for my understanding how well you can do this time around. If you got a full fellowship at Olin last time, I don't see why now with more (And hopefully better) experience, you couldn't do as well.

I think the thing to think about from your perspective though - is how important is that scholarship to you REALLY? Meaning int he hypothetical situation where you had a Booth admit and an Olin full ride, where would you go? And why?

Which brings me to my next point - what are your goals? Why do you want to go to B-school? (and no "entrepreneurship" is not clear enough :) ) And why NOW of all times?

If you can get back to me on all this, I would be able to have more insight into your profile.

Best,
JF
