Ethnicity
Hispanic dual citizen Mexico USA
Fluent Spanish and English

I have a pretty descent illegal immigration to citizenship story

26 years old

Gmat 720 48Q 41V 8IR 6AWA

GPA 3.34 from Texas State University (average college) bachelors in accounting

30 months of experience, will have 42 by the time I enroll

Work for $60bln commercial bank. In the oil field services lending group. Underwrote over 600million of new and existing credit facilities. Helped companies through IPOs, acquisitions, bankruptcies, etc.

Did lead an analyst only set of meetings to help the bank determine why analysts were leaving for other banks (had approval from executive management to do this). Many of the ideas we came up with were implemented for long lasting value add.

Extracurricular currently includes the HEART program where I volunteer for an organization that helps dissablied adults work for good wages. They run concession stands at sporting events (Houston. Rockets, shell open) and since they are not allowed to handle the money the organization has volunteers run the registers and help the workers(people with dissabities).

Goal is to work for a top strategic consulting firm for 5/10 years and then transfer to industry in a management position.

I am targeting HBS Columbia Wharton and Kellogg

Please let me know if I would have a chance.

Hey there, Well overall you have a good profile, and I thin this immigrant to citizenship story will definitely resonate.

The thing is, since you are applying for really Top schools I need more info to understand your chances. More about what you have done at work what your performance was like, what leadership you have, etc. etc. etc.

Overall, anyhow I would definitely whatever the case advise you to expand your school list to five-six schools minimum. This will allow you to apply to the top of the top but also build a realistic school strategy at the same time.

I hope this helps!
Feel free to follow up with more info for a free consultation: http://admissionado.com/free-consultati ... n=mba_blog

Best,
Jon
