Hi. Would love a profile review. Will apply to Judge next year (4 years WE at matriculation, age 25) so wondering what I can do to strengthen my application, and make me competitive for scholarships.

Background and nationality: Citizen of a South East Asian (SEA) country. Ethnicity is mixed: SEAn and East Asian.

Undergrad Information: Top 2 university in my country, does not rank well globally. Majored in a quantitative business course. GPA converts to slightly below 3.65

GMAT: Yet to take. Practice CATs hover above 700.

Work experience and leadership: 2 years (as of right now) in a middle market bank working in Equity Research as a covering associate. Very client-facing. Also informally work in a diversified family business that's considered medium-sized in my country. Eight digit annual revenues in USD.

Extra-Curricular Activities: Have gone to business trips to other Asian countries. Constantly in contact with international buy-side clients across the globe.

Community and others: Had strong leadership roles in a charity-based UG org. Semi-active after as a consultant to the org.

Post MBA goals: I will run the medium-sized family business one day, and an MBA would help with the network, learning, and reputation. Will join it right after MBA.

Anything else? Took summer courses in top unis in UK and an Asian country.

That's a great profile for Judge! You just need to get an upward 710 score to increase your chances to get into Judge! For scholarship, you would need to be more convincing when writing your essays. You will need to thoroughly work on your career vision post MBA in order to be eligible for scholarship. Also focus on getting some international exposure within your current work if that's possible!

All the best!

Hi there,
Thanks for posting. When is your GMAT date, or have you taken it by now?
If the GMAT goes well and you execute well on your applications, you may have a decent chance at Judge. In terms of strengthening your profile at this point, I would say:
-seek out any and all opportunities to demonstrate leadership and make more impact in both your day job and the family company (make suggestions, take initiative, step up to take on additional projects etc)
-consider getting involved in a community activity close to your heart if you are not currently
-continue to increase your involvement in the family company if that is your main career path/goal
-research Judge and get in touch with multiple Judge students and alum and have extensive dialogue to really get to know the culture and community and strengthen your ability to make a strong case for why this is the right program for you when you do apply

Good luck and keep us posted!

Hi guys, I will be really grateful for a profile review for the Judge MBA, Class of 21, being how my path is different from most applicants. I only went for my undergrad after 7 years in the military and I am not sure how this will affect my application for the MBA considering I am still an undergrad, and my WE came before. Any thoughts? I have already been awarded an MBA Overseas Scholarship from my previous organisation.

I graduate from undergrad studies on Dec 19, however, I intend to send in my applications in Round 1 with my unofficial transcript reflecting my current GPA - only 1 elective module left, it won't affect my GPA - Is this advisable?
