Hi there, and thanks for writing! You have good academics and progressive work experience. Regarding enhancing your candidacy for Stern - are you involved in any extracurriculars (community service or otherwise)? Stern likes to see multidimensional candidates, so this would help. Aside from that, the quality of your essays and recommendations certainly have an influence on the success of your application. Here is mbaMission's essay analysis on Stern - you may want to review to see if you approached the essays similarly: https://www.mbamission.com/blog/2018/06 ... 2018-2019/

I hope that this helps a bit! Please let me know of any other questions :)

Hi all,

Would really appreciate a profile review. I'm planning to apply for the 2020 intake in round 1.

Profile - Indian male, non engineering background
Age - 26 years (will be 27 when I apply)

Gmat 1 - 730 (Q49, V40)
Gmat 2 - 720 (Q50, V39)
Gmat 3 - 740 (Q49,V42)

Educational Qualification - A chartered accountant (equivalent to a US CPA) with a bachelor's degree in commerce with accounting as the major. I have cleared all 3 levels of the CA exam in the first attempt (probablity of 0.2% considering the result statistics) and stood 2nd in my City at the final level. The CA course also involved 3 years of full time intership experience at a CA firm in international taxation. Additionally, I have also cleared all 3 levels of the CFA program.

Post qualification experience (approx. 5 to 5.5 years when I apply)

1) 3 and a half years of experience in International tax (transfer pricing) at PwC Mumbai. Only the 2nd associate in PwC transfer pricing practice to get promoted to an assistant manager in 1 and half years.

2) Approximately 8 months of experience with Citibank Mumbai in credit risk management. Currently leading a key project on automation which has the potential to transform the way our team functions and reduce manpower substantially.

Reason for pursuing an MBA - having made a successful transition from international taxation to banking, I'm looking at an MBA to give me the right impetus and platform to further switch to investment management.

While at PwC, I had already applied for the 2018 intake at Stern with a score of 730 and was waitlisted without interview.

It would really help if someone can analyse my candidature for the 2020 intake at Stern as a reapplicant and also suggest ways to improve my chances.

Hi, would like an evaluation of profile strength, and prospective schools I should target among the top B schools.

GMAT: Yet to take, but targetting 750
Age: 27 yrs
UG: Bachelors in commerce - very low gpa (probably converts to 2.0 to 2.5). I was working full time (40hrs a week) as an Audit assistant during my undergrad degree. I believe I can offset this with high GMAT score and also with quant heavy work experience. I am also willing to do a course through coursera or mbamath to prove my quantitative skills

Other professional qualification - Chartered Accountant (equivalent to CPA US) and CFA exams cleared (charter is pending)

Work Experience:
2 years at an Audit firm in chennai as an audit assistant.

1yr as an equity research analyst for a small company (50 employees) in Hyd, covering multiple sectors. Streamlined weekly newsletter with stock suggestions that is sent to all our clients. Initiated mutual fund advisory to our existing clients.

1yr as an equity research analyst at CRISIL Pune (S&P global company) supporting a global research client covering Asia Pacific Telecom. Assisted in the launch of coverage of a new company. Obtained an award within 3 months for integrating seamlessly with the client.

Nationality: Indian

short term goals: Stick to equity research but become an Analyst at a company such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, etc
Long term goal: to become a fund manager

Voluntary work: nothing substantial

I am looking to apply in 2019-20 admission cycle (hopefully in the first deadline) to Stern, Cornell, Columbia. Please let me know what are my chances and which other schools I should target based on my profile and goals. Thanks a lot in advance :)
