Hi there,

I recently took the GMAT and am hoping to gain some insight regarding my candidate profile for FT MBA Programs (ideal matriculation in 2018).
With that in mind, please see the details of my current situation below:

Undergrad - UC Davis (2013)
Major - Economics
GPA - 3.61
GMAT - 710 (44Q 41V 8IR)
Age at Enrollment - 28
Designations - CFA Charterholder, CAIA Charterholder
Extracurriculars - Current: Local CFA Society Mentor, Local CAIA Society Member, University Finance Club Mentor, Corporate Mentor Program. Previous: University Boxing Club Member, University Financial Club Member, Local Middle School Reading Partners Club Tutor, Golden Key Honor Society Member. Additionally, I worked during my entire senior year for a major wirehouse in their PWM department.

I am currently an associate at a boutique investment bank, and prior to that I worked in the wealth management industry within two of the most well-known wirehouses (think ML, JPM, GS, CITI) for approximately three years. I am aiming to work in investment banking post-MBA, but within a technology vertical of a bulge bracket bank (looking to hop industries and level-up in terms of scale).

My major concern is that before UCD I spent four years at city college. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do (was 17 years old), and even considered attempting to become a professional boxer. It wasn't until my third year that I saw the light and began to seriously pursue a finance path (finished with a 3.07 GPA).

I am planning on applying to: Anderson, Haas, Tuck, Stern, Fuqua, Johnson, and Kellogg. To my hopeful audience....what're my chances with these programs?

Thank you in advance for any and all responses!!!

Hey there,
Great to hear from you. I would love to hear a bit more in detail about your profile, especially your work experience to really know where you might stand, but I think that your choice of schools is quite good for the profile you have. You could spread out a bit more (I think you are missing a safe school or two in your strategy). I might suggest schools like UNC, Tepper, McCombs for example, from which finance firms recruit, even though they aren't top 10, necessarily.

I hope this helps! And feel free to drop us a line for a free consultation.

Best,
JF
