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!

Other schools are Yale, Stanford(as both seem to be well aligned for clean tech and sustainability), Booth (for their PE lab), and Ross. I may also apply to Columbia if I have the time before the October deadline.

IMO, your S1 filing and IPO work will set you apart. how many guys working in startups get to do that?! Your growth at the startup seem to have been great. Your career growth (& experience) seems to be very good with a managerial position at your current A-list company.
I am not sure how your product management goals connect with the work experience so far, but you will have to come up with a logical goals story.

ilya56rus-
Hello and thanks for your post. I would be happy to review your profile.
Admissions committees will look at your profile holistically, analyzing your stats (GMAT/GPA), work experience & goals, and extracurriculars.
You have a strong profile, with your only weakness as you mentioned being your GPA. You should definitely address that in your Optional Essay, and the rest of your application will hopefully be strong and compelling, thus offsetting the lower GPA.
Your GMAT certainly will show schools that you have the academic capacity to succeed in the classroom. A 740 is excellent and slightly above average for even the top programs.
It is tough to gauge your work experience without a resume that details your accomplishments. But it looks like you have leadership experiences through managing people. You'll want to highlight those types of experiences, and any time you took initiative or led a project, or even mentored more junior analysts. Make sure your post-MBA goal is specific and realistic, and if you mention going into consulting or tech, that should be the case.
As for extracurriculars, it's not too late to get involved, and ideally take on a leadership role. Perhaps you can do something similar to what you did in the Finnish high schools.

I think your application has a lot of potential. Good luck!
