Hi,

I am considering applying to the Chicago Business Fellows program for 2019. Unfortunately, there are very few profiles for the CBF program, so I'm not sure at all, if I will get in. What do you believe are my chances?

Citizenship: US

Diversity:
- Ethnicity: Indian
- Gender: Male
- Location: California
- Sexuality: LGBT

Academics:
- State University - Top 75 on USNWR National University Rankings (LOL)
- Doctorate in STEM
- GPA: 3.7+ (summa cum laude)
- GMAT: 710

Previous experience:
- Biopharma strategy consulting x 2 yrs (1 year international)
- Small unheard of foreign company (about 40-50 people)
- Manage 5+ people
- Promoted twice
- 2 Biopharmaceutical company internships (1 was a full year part-time while in school, another was full time during the summer)
- 1 Health insurance company internship (full time during the summer)
- 1 Prestigious venture capital firm in Manhattan internship (2 months during summer of breaking through to the elites haha - think old money mega rich family that is a household name's VC firm. They usually take an intern at a HSW MBA program each year)

Leadership:
- Student government president (School not University - School was about 1400 students, 25 student orgs, and a few different degree programs)
- Various minor student organisation E-board / Chair positions

Why I want to go to Booth?
- Increasingly involved in management and finance related projects (lack the current foundations in this)
- Will be expected to contribute on the leadership team for my company within the next 2 years and I need to build my skills for this
- To reconsider VC - I received positive feedback from my VC internship and even 2 years later we still keep in touch. However, it was made clear to me that they only recruit from top MBA programs and at the time I lacked the finance background, but wanted my experience / education in biopharma to understand some Biotech Start Ups they were working with
- I was the first with my particular background to get the internship and since they've rotated another person with a similar background to me, but still have only hired their occasional MBA interns
- My ultimate career goal has been to start-up a biotech - the network, education, and career advancement from Booth would be largely beneficial for this

Sincerely,
LS

Hi, thanks for your time!
Please evaluate my profile:

Background and nationality : Russian male, 29; First generation (in family) college graduate.

Undergrad Information : started Math and IT degree in home city, after 3 years decided to change my life and moved to Finland to study Industrial management ( bachelor of engineering )

GMAT: 740 q49 v41

Work experience and leadership: 5 years, Consulting with Pwc and DuPont; PE/family office and consulting with boutique; now Business development in international mining company. Current position: Senior analyst.
Managed up to 10 (as a part of projects).

Community and others: unfortunately not much. When I studied in Finland I made a trip to hometown to visit 6 high schools to inform pupils about opportunities to study for free abroad ( made presentation and video with interviews of current students )

Post MBA goals :
Tech or consulting (maybe entrepreneurship )

Anything else:
I have very poor GPA ( about 2.6 - hard to calculate because of Finnish grading system )
Reason: I had to pay for my living in Finland myself , so I worked as a morning postman (from 2 am till 6 am 6 days a week)

Once again thank you very much for your time.
Also if somebody has an offer to help me with admission consulting please send me PM
