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.

I was wondering if I should get a second letter of recommendation from one of my mentees? generally speaking I would not advise this-- as these recommendations should be from people senior to you-- otherwise the schools may not be sure if you have pressured your subordinates or mentees to be giving advice. I would encourage a supervisor who has seen your good work with mentees to mention it that way.

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.

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. If you take a new position and you can clearly state how it moves you closer to your post MBA goal then it could be worth it. However, it is always a little challenging to switch jobs within 3 months of applying to B school so I might not do it unless it really is just a huge stepping stone for you-- in which case you might consider delaying your application for a year to really get the benefit of the new position....
