Applying from Canada for 2020, Big 4 audit background with CPA. Trying to figure out what kind of chance I have for my reach schools (Cornell and Duke)

Background and nationality:
- 26M, Canadian (Filipino ethnicity)
- Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA)
- (Projected): potentially taking CFA Level 1 (very common in finance industry in Canada it seems like)

Undergrad Information:
- Bachelor of Commerce (Honours), double major in Accounting and Finance
- 3.3/4.0 (converted from 3.7/4.5)
- I should note there's a downward trend in last two years (2.8/4.0 last year, 3.0/4.0 last two years). ECs were all in last two years and wanted to focus being a more well-rounded student, not sure how bad this looks to adcoms. I know Rotman requires a 3.0 in last year so I'm worried about this

GMAT:
710 (Q48 V39 IR3 AWA?)
- IR score is low but my previous two attempts I scored an 8 and 5 so I think having that on my score report offsets the low 3
- Just wrote this past weekend so haven't gotten my AWA yet, I scored 5 and 6 on my first two attempts

Work experience and leadership:
- 2.5 years Big 4 Audit (3.5 years if you include university co-op terms - can these be included in WE?). Promotion to Senior, high ratings and excellent reviews, lead senior on largest client in the office ($700M revenues, $1B market cap), performed audit work over two acquisitions and multiple equity/debenture offerings
- 1 year Financial Reporting Manager in a publicly traded company in the newspaper/media industry, implemented new accounting standards for investments and lease accounting, not a lot of other career accomplishments in this role
- (Projected): potentially looking for a new job that is more related to finance (ie. FP&A, TAS, Valuations, investment analyst) to have something tangible that shows my commitment to the career pivot

Community and others:
Current:
- Board Director at a charity that provides food access/security/policy
- Treasurer at an animal welfare charity that helps find lost dogs
- Finance Committee member at a non-profit youth employment services organization
Undergrad:
- Vice President for co-op students association
- Corporate Events Coordinator for accounting students association
- Business case competition team member (we won school of the year)

Post MBA goals
- Investment banking (post-MBA associate at big 5 Canadian banks or boutique firm) or corporate finance

Anything else?
Targets: Rotman, Ivey, Schulich, Queen's
Far Reach: Cornell Johnson, Duke Fuqua

Questions:
- Is my low GPA an issue when applying?
- Do co-op terms count towards WE?
- Should I take CFA level 1?

During my MBA I started two Startups, got angel funding of $75k which I used to scale those to a good level, but because of the shortage of personal funds had to sell those off.

Function of Work: Startup Strategy/ Marketing/ Brand Management

Why second MBA: To gain international exposure in the Start-up ecosystem which I couldn't get till now, preferably in Finance and join strategy/ Startup consulting. 10 years down the line I want to set up my own VC firm.
Undergrad Score: 74.93%(Top 3% of my batch)
Post Grad Score: 3.14/4( Top 2% of my batch)
Extra-Curricular:
1. Winner of 10 National level B Plan and Startup Accelerator competitions.Finalist in 5 competitions.

Hi MartinLF90,

You have got a great profile. Johnson is a great choice for people seeking career in Finance (36%) and a great career accelerator for switchers.

Johnson looks for the following attributes in a potential candidate:
1. Strong Acads: Outstanding academic credentials and competitive standardized test scores
2. Notable career: A resume that outlines notable professional accomplishments
3. Impact: The desire to make a positive impact and potential contributions as a community member
4. Clear Vision: The ability to clearly communicate their career goals and the role Johnson will play in the process

I see a great mix of 1,2 & 4 in your profile. A GMAT score of 700 will be quite good for Johnson and your work experience also is quite at par with the average there ( 5 years) but I would suggest you to bring and highlight the stories of your impact in the work. Your extracurriculars, I think, are very appealing and what’s going to matter most in your application is how you connect the experiential dots and build a great story to stand out from other applicants in the pool.

If you'd like, I am happy to hop on a call sometime this week to discuss your chances in further detail. Feel free to book my calendar as per your convenience.

Cheers!

Hi theleopride,

You have got a great profile! Johnson is a great school for both consulting and finance. From what i can see in your profile, your GMAT is really great for Johnson ( avg stands at 696) and will very swiftly cover your low acads. Your work ex too seems quite great and I would not worry much about having no international experience as long as I can highlight multicultural work ex.
I recently worked with 2 other candidates who had no experience working in an international setting and they made it to their dream schools for MBA. Additionally, since your clients are from different nationalities, that should really suffice to showcase diverse/multicultural exposure.

What can become a downside for you is you are not involved in any social role yet and Johnson highly values your contributions to the community and so you would have to bring philanthropic tendencies in your personality. Also, I would advise you to be very clear about your post MBA goals since Johnson specifically asks detailed questions of the same.

What I believe the most important part in your application is how you connect the experiential dots and build a great story to stand out from other applicants in the pool.

If you'd like, I am happy to hop on a call sometime this week to discuss your chances in further detail. Feel free to book my calendar as per your convenience.

Cheers!

Hi ab2021,

You have got a nice profile. Johnson’s Tech MBA is a great career booster and overall too, Johnson is a great school for tech.

Johnson looks for the following attributes in a potential candidate:
1. Strong Acads: Outstanding academic credentials and Competitive standardized test scores
2. Notable career: A resume that outlines notable professional accomplishments
3. Impact: The desire to make a positive impact and potential contributions as a community member
4. Clear Vision: The ability to clearly communicate their career goals and the role Johnson will play in the process

I see a great mix of 1,2 and 4 in your profile. A gmat score of 710 is really great and I can see a tech enthusiast in you which definitely sorts out the question of your fit to this program. I would advise you to bring the stories of “impact to community” on table. So, overall you are a great fit for this program but what’s going to matter most in your application is how you connect the experiential dots and build a great story to stand out from other applicants in the pool.

If you'd like, I am happy to hop on a call sometime this week to discuss your chances for all your target schools. Feel free to book my calendar as per your convenience.

Cheers!

Requesting a profile review

*Background*

Overview:
I’m looking to bring a strong sense of purpose in my career by transitioning fully to social impact. I’ve always wanted to go into social impact full-time, but I needed to build a niche and valuable skillset before doing so. Regarding marketable skills, I feel ready now, but I need an MBA to help me transition.

Work experience:
I'm currently a Product Manager in Internet Business in a Multinational Telecommunications company. I have 5.5 years of full-time experience, all in Telecommunications product management. The firm I work for is one of the top ones in my country, Bangladesh, and is a part of the 10th largest mobile network operator in the world. I've gotten regular, formal awards (Marketing Award for six quarters out of the twelve quarters of my employment till date + Employee of the month multiple times) at work and my portfolio has increased with time. I can back my achievements with solid numbers.

Some career highlights
- Successful completion of 1-month international assignment & placement in HQ
- Former Management Trainee with fast track progression to Managerial role, within only 2.5 years of my career
- Project Manager for the first telecom merger in Bangladesh
- Product Manager for Facebook's Freebasics program in Bangladesh, which focuses on giving internet connectivity to the bottom of the pyramid, launching it for the first time in my country

On the side, I'm a director at my family business which focuses on government and non-profit sector consulting. I do business advisory for non-profits, and one of these non-profits was founded by a Harvard Kennedy alum and an Oxford Said MBA alum. My area of expertise is "mobile tech & communications for development".

Extracurriculars:
During my undergrad, I won multiple international & national awards in social entrepreneurship competitions. One of that was GSEC organized by the University of Washington's Foster School of Business. My team had beat out MIT in that competition. I was also awarded by Nobel Peace Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus, for winning Yunus Centre's social entrepreneurship idea competition. I've coordinated nationwide charity drives back in my undergrad, 100+ people reporting to me.

Other coursework:
I finished MBA Math and I scored 100% in all of the MBA Math courses.

Nationality: Bangladeshi

Sex: Male

*Stats*

GRE & TOEFL Score:
My GRE total is 328, with a breakdown of 169 in Verbal, 159 in Quant, 4.5 in AW. I'm also done with my TOEFL with a 113/120.
I plan to resit the GRE to raise my Quant, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to make the time for it.

Undergrad GPA:
I graduated from the best business school in my country. My alma mater has alums in top business schools all over the world, including the business schools that I plan to apply to.

My 3.13/4 CGPA (Major- Finance) is measly though. I dived into ECAs during my first two years, achieving great success at the expense of my academics. Reprioritized and did very well in academics during my third year. During my fourth year, I contracted Hepatitis E just before my final exams, and my CGPA took a nosedive. My last year’s GPA was 3/4 versus my third year’s GPA of 3.7/4. I had the choice of postponing my studies for a year or taking a bad hit to my CGPA, & I chose the latter due to financial reasons. Anyways, even after taking my horrible fourth year in account, my last two years' CGPA is 3.35/4, so there is an upward trend there.

*MBA Info*

Goal of MBA:
Working in social impact on the side has actually inspired me to enter social impact full-time post-MBA, perhaps joining my family's business on a full-time basis, and/or starting a sister organization to the family business focused on my area of expertise. My area of expertise, Telecommunications, is very important for social impact in my country, Bangladesh. Our internet connectivity is almost entirely mobile communications dependant.

Working in a large private organization has not given me the training I need to embark on an entrepreneurial venture or engage full-time in expanding a family business. I need an MBA to make me ready.
