Hi there Precision Essay folks,

Here's my basic profile:

25, Male (26 at Matriculation)
I'm African American.
I'm a Director of Finance in For-Profit Education (probably the youngest Director of Finance the company ever had when I was promoted at 24 years old)
690 GMAT (88%). (66%q, 89%v) First try and not retaking.
3.24 GPA, B.S. in Finance from a Cal State University, also an A.A. and A.S. No supplemental classes and not taking any.

Ex-Cirr = I'm the Mentor to entry level Management Trainee's in my District (selected after a competitive application process).

Transitioning from Finance/General Management to IB equity capital markets due to lack of growth and instability in the For-Profit Education industry.

I'm particularly interested in what you think my chances are in terms of percent, assuming perfect recommendations and very good essays, at HBS, Haas, Johnson, Tepper, McCombs, Marshall, & Kelley.

And based on my profile do you think there are any other programs you think I might be a good fit for?

Thank you :)

HBS will give you a run for your money, but at the others your chances should be very good. I'd need some more info to really tell you though - need to get an idea about the size of your company, of the amounts you are dealing with. Do you lead any people?

also, have you thought about applying through the consortium??

Ok, well, the company has 1.6 billion in annual revenue, over 7000 employees, and it has a recognized name (although often in a bad way). I lead 3 people (small department). And I am applying through the Consortium :)

Good. Well I think with your list you are good. If you have the time and energy add one or two more schools that appeal to you, and with good recs and good essays you are gonna do fine.
