Hi Paul,

I would greatly appreciate your thoughts on my profile. I am currently considering retaining the services of an admissions consultant and your insight would be very valuable. Here are the particulars:

760 GMAT Q 48 V 46
3.96 GMAT at Canadian university (3rd and 4th year) attended a college prior to that and got a diploma in accounting during 1st and 2nd year - GPA there was more like 3.3-3.4.
Work experience as project coordinator working for a real estate development in Victoria, BC - kind of a unique position that also includes creating information systems and managing customer accounts for a nascent microutility owned by the development.

I have a second contract job where I do research, analysis and the creation of presentation materials for a management consultant (an FCMC) regarding exit strategies for owners of SME's.

Extra-curricular: Worked as strategic advisor, financial agent and social media strategist for a city council election campaign - our candidate got a spot on council against a strong field where all 8 incumbents were running.

Have given marketing and branding lectures (3 hrs. over 3 1 hr. sessions to a group of local entrepreneurs who do not qualify for regular credit but are seeking microloans as part of a community lending program). I intend to do this several more times before matriculating (and because I love doing it, certainly not just as a check box on an MBA application).

I have several other volunteer work kinds of things that I won't go into in detail, the list goes a bit deeper but the aforementioned are I think the most salient extra-curric.

Finally, my GMAT verbal was 99th percentile and I really do believe that I can craft stellar essays - weak essays, at least from the perspective of the craftsmanship of the writing, will not be a problem.

Would appreciate any thoughts on where you think I stand and which schools I should target (I would like to find a good fit for a great experience and an opportunity to transition into management consulting).

A manager of MBA Admissions at one of the schools that I requested my GMAT score be sent to, Richard Ivey, contacted me within days of me finishing writing the exam to set up a phone call, so I do have an indication that that school sees me as high-potential enough to warrant contacting early in the process.

I would be interested in you thoughts about my chances in the US top 10 and how and where to minimize weaknesses.
