Hello @krishna198

The outline of your profile is quite decent. What matters from here is simply the GMAT score and what you choose to bring out in the essays. You can read here on what to highlight in your essays.
Needless to say target for a 730+ for the likes of Wharton.
The narrative on career goals looks weak and you may wish to tie in your long term goals to an MBA. Not seeing a need for an MBA to reach the path you have mentioned. Maybe reading here could help.
Commenting on other schools without an expected GMAT and clearer career goals will be pure speculation (which I'm sure you are not looking at).
Should you have further questions, let me know.

Best

thanks alot Mr.Sharma.

This is really helpful.

GMAT - Aiming to reach 740+. I surely realize that I have started late and targeting for R2 considering the time available between now and R2.

Goals - I have gone thru the article that you have shared and I see that I have more than 1 reason for pursuing MBA, however, Im struggling to make more clear. One year back I have started one year online executive education program from Stanford - LEAD- Corporate Innovation. Although it has been very helpful and great learning, the limitations are (a) to pursue this while executing multiple projects in office (b) limited reach to other working peers who also struggle to find time- which limits the learnings from various case studies. I realized the learnings would be much more beautiful with full time MBA course, (2) helps me to expand network and find like minded to support each other, (3) gets me access to companies like Google, Apple, Amazon, Netflix (next generation companies with customer centric focus compared to 'manufacturing setups which are less susceptible to present change).

I will work on this area.

Hi legendkillaz,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. Your credentials seem on par, slightly above average, which is excellent. Can you break down your Quant and Verbal scores?

Since you have a competitive profile (quantitatively speaking), strategically use the remaining time, between now and application deadline, to develop a robust qualitative profile that speaks to your values and your ambitions. Be sure your objective is clear: Why do you need an MBA? Why Wharton? And Why Now? Having a clear and concise description of who you are, where are you going, and how can Wharton get you there, is vital to your application success.

I am happy to discuss your profile in further detail. If interested, please reach out to coordinate a free consultation (contact details in signature).

Good luck!

Hello gmateIndia

While the contours of your profile look decent on all the admission factors mentioned here
However, speculating the choice of schools requires one to understand your profile deeper especially with respect to career goals. Reading here here may hep you in your research.
For the likes of Wharton you may want to take your GMAT up by 20 points. But needless to say how you tie in all of the above with your career goals and the need of an MBA will be a deciding factor.
Should you have further questions, let me know.

Education:
BBA in Risk Management and Insurance from Temple University
Honors Program, Magna Cum Laude, GPA: 3.76

Work Experience: Total 5 years
Job 1 (2 years) - Global Property Underwriter at world's largest publicly traded insurance company. Analyzed and managed risk for complex multinational property portfolios.

Job 2 (3 years) - Co-Founder/CEO of energy efficiency consulting company. Started the company during my sophomore year of college and worked part-time while working at the insurance firm until it grew to the point where I decided to pursue the energy consulting full-time. Worked with property managers, building owners, etc to convert their facilities to up to 70% efficiency. Portfolio annual savings at about $1M.

Extra curriculars - After winning first place at a business pitch competition for Emerging Young Entrepreneurs, joined as an advisor/assistant director of the program focused on fostering and accelerating underrepresented minority owned businesses to work with government and corporate entities.
At the time of application, will be working in Singapore for a network organization connecting non-profit startup ventures to impact investors and government grants.
In college and throughout my insurance role, contributed to a firm that is dedicated to creating opportunities for asian-americans in leadership roles in corporations.

Post MBA Goal - further hone business strategy consulting skills to support global social enterprises in creating sustainable business models. Long-term goal: create a fund that supports social enterprises/startups with the potential for financial returns for investors.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Chris

Looking for a little clarification....

Trying to get a gauge by individuals familiar with the program on whether to apply or no. I particularly wish to understand who this Emba really caters to within which industry as well as is this program quant heavy? I have been invited to Booth’s EMBA interview but through a couple calls, was told that you can select how much wuant heavy classes you wish to take. The reason for my asking, as you will see below, is I am not a quant heavy investment manager so i am getting an idea of whether I should apply to Wharton or not. I also have submitted an app to the LBS/Columbia Global program and possibly Yale or Cornell. Below is a bit about me:

- 14 years in the finance industry in a few different areas(10 as Investment Manager & Principal).
- Currently manage $225 mil in AUM across 18 relationships.
- Highest Education: Masters in Finance at Notre Dame - 3.72 GPA
Executive Assessment - 150

Activities - Local grade school involvement with sports, academics as well as fund raising. Ethics workshop with private military high school. Learning French and marathon and ultra marathon endurance racer. Provide pro bono work to local marine and habitat group.

Hello chakraaayan

Your GMAT, career progress, goals look solid. Lower GPA can be a problem at the likes of Wharton, but at some schools might get compensated with your GMAT score.
Seems a decent shot at Duke & Cornell if you can put together a strong application.
Make sure you tie in factors mentioned here with your career goals and a need of an MBA.

Hi christophahn,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. You, indeed, have a strong and interesting profile. The weakness that I see is a GMAT that is lower than average for the target b-school, but I do not see it being a deterrent (what is your GMAT breakdown)? Depending on the round you are targeting, I would consider retaking GMAT if you can.

That said, I would dedicate a lot of your time developing and telling your story to the adCom. Be sure your story is authentic to your experiences, but also is mindful of the values of the institution. Additionally, clearly articulate why you require an MBA and why now.

Happy to continue the conversation with a free 30-minute consultation. If interested please reach out (contact detail in signature).

Good luck!

Hi sarcophilus,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. Great job with your GMAT! I think you have an interesting story that if told properly will lead to great success. I recommend you be genuine in your experiences and clear about your ambitions. Inform the AdCom why Wharton makes sense for you (aside from ranking) and why do you require an MBA now. Which other schools are you targeting? I hope you are submitting to R1 as PE slots fill quickly (but only if you submit a holistically strong application).

I am happy to continue the conversation with a free 30-minute consultation. If interested, please reach out (contact details in signature).

Good luck!
