Good morning,

I was wondering if you could give me a profile evaluation? Please see below:

GMAT 710

GPA 3.67

Have a MS in accounting as well, also got a 3.66.

I have my CPA license.

I just finished my second year at a national firm (BDO,Grant Thornton, RSM) in the audit practice. Since starting I have received one promotion. At my firm I am heavily involved with recruiting. Probably one of the most active people. I attend school fairs and decide which candidates I would like to receive a second glance.

For volunteer expierence I participate in activities through my firm. I've worked with cancer patients before.

I also do a program at my Alma matta where I mentor students 1 on 1 for a full year. I currently have two students, most individuals only have one. I mentor them on career advice and what steps I think would be beneficial. We meet up usually once every few weeks but I communicate with them a few times a week.

One of my letters of recommendation will be from a former senior manager who is now the director of financial reporting at a major sports channel everyone has heard of.

I was wondering if I should get a second letter of recommendation from one of my mentees?

Also now a lot of recruiters have been reaching out, and one recruiter reached out about an analyst position at a major IB (Goldman, Morgan Stanley, Meryl Lynch) for a financial analysis position within their investment management division. Basically one step away from the traders and assisting them directly.

I was thinking of taking this position since I want to go to IB and this seems like a very close position. By the time I start full-time I've had almost two years of audit expierence, and more than a year at the bank as an analysis.

Hi JayMekk,

Thank you for your post. I am not sure I understand your question. Are you thinking of applying to an MBA program? Or is the question related to the IB offer? If you are thinking about an MBA, what schools are you targetting?

I'm aimed more towards MBA Admissions. I was thinking around the Cornell level. Top 10 - 17. Personally I'd really like to go to Johnson. Do you think I have a shot ?

Hi JayMekk,

Thank you for your reply. I have insufficient information to go by (and recommend you reach out to schedule a free consultation), so take my recommendation with a grain of salt. Based on your professional and academic background, your profile seems competitive for Johnson (and other Top 10-17 MBA programs). Your profile hits all the characteristics that AdComm are looking for in the admissions process. An essential component of the application and admission will be, however, your success in conveying your story, why you need an MBA, and why now.

I would like to provide more information, but am working with limited details. If you are interested, please reach out to schedule a free consultation so we can discuss your candidacy further (contact details in signature).

Good luck!
