Hi there - thanks for writing! You have a good GPA and distinctive work experience. GMAT will be very important - as an Indian applicant to top schools, I advise that you aim for a 730+ to distinguish yourself from other applicants. Also, in your applications, make a strong case for why Tuck is a good fit based on its culture and offerings - this will require thoroughly researching the school and speaking with multiple students/alumni (who are very receptive to prospective student outreach).

Hope that helps a bit! Feel free to follow up with any additional questions.

Hello All,
I would like to have my profile evaluated. I just took the GMAT in June and am ready to apply for business school in Fall 2019. Here is my information:
GMAT: 710 (50Q/34V/6 IR) Have not received my AWA score yet
GPA: ~ 3.37 (over a 3.5 my last year)
Degree: BA Economics, UCLA. Transfer GPA - 3.8
Experience: 2 years as an analyst at a real estate investment company(1 year at current firm). Work in both acquisitions (acquired 3 hotels for $150mm since I started) and asset management (6 of our current hotels, and 135 hotels for a third party). Had previous internship experience in PWM.
Extracurricular: Over 700 hours working as a volunteer at the local hospital, as a tutor, and as a coach for middle school children. No experience in professional leadership/managerial roles. Was a member of Ski and Snowboard team in college. Mentor a student at UCLA. High School Valedictorian.
Background: Indian (born and raised in California). 25 years old. Typical middle class story for a kid in Orange County.
What I want from business school: First, I would like to work in finance, either in real estate acquisitions, PWM, or VC/PE. I would like to gain both the professional and personal skills that business school can provide. Finally, I need a change in my life.
Letters of Rec: Plan on asking my CIO and an Associate at my current company for my two recommendations. I also have my previous employer in case. Do not have a professor at UCLA I can ask since I did not spend a lot of time in office hours.
Other: The one issue which will make things difficult is that I was accused of cheating in college. I received academic probation and I'm sure I will have to discuss what happened. I would like some feedback whether this is a automatic red flag. It was a mistake and I've grown from it, but I am sure it will leave a mark.

Thank You,
Intern

Hi GMatpercher,

I am missing more details here that will make your profile easier to understand. What has your career growth been like? what impact have you made at both your organizations? how was your performance compared to peers? And what drives you to do an MBA from the b-schools you have mentioned in your different posts?

Hi there - thanks for writing. It looks like you have some strengths to your profile - excellent GPA and career progression so far.

While a 720 is solid, given how competitive things are for Indian applicants, is increasing the GMAT score by 10+ points a possibility? If so, try your best as this could help competitively. Also, are you involved in any current extracurriculars? AdCom does take college involvement into account, but the strongest applicants have current involvement in outside pursuits as well.

Aside from this, you want to make a very strong case in your application for 1. why Tuck is a strong fit based on its unique culture and location, small class size, and resources and 2. why consulting is the path for you - what motivates you?

Hope that helps a bit! :)

Currently going into my 4th year co-leading the finance arm within the education sector.

First of all thank you for taking the time to read our profiles, it really means a lot to us!

My profile is definitely on the more unconventional side when it comes to applicants, but I hope that doesn't make it impossible for you to evaluate it. I'm especially keen to hear your thoughts on my master's education (more information below). With my work experience I'm intentionally pedantic to provide a full picture so you can understand my path and my motivation better. Of course not going to this much detail in my resume :-)

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Age: Turning 29

Race: Caucasian

Gender: Male

Nationality: Finland - There is less than 5 Finnish Tuck Alumni. Finns VERY rarely leave their country for education due to it being free and high quality and usually when they do they go to other European countries. I'm not sure if this works to my benefit or to my disadvantage, but thought I'd bring it up that I am almost certainly the only Finn applying to Tuck this year.

Living in: Central Europe (I'm an expat with years of international experience)

Education:

- Bachelor of Military Science from Finnish National Defense University (Equivalent of Westpoint) (2010-2013). Majored in Strategy, minored in Leadership studies. GPA is impossible to translate to American GPA, but I was above average (top 40%)

- ALMOST completed Master of Business Intelligence and Information Management (International Business) at a well known Central European University. I've completed all my course work back in 2016, but never defended my thesis and therefore have NOT officially graduated. GPA from the classes I took are slightly above average once again. Also took some courses at Harvard during the summer, they are all graded as A's.

NOTE: I have a VERY good reason for not finishing my master's studies, but it is too personal to write here. I will explain it to the adcoms of course.

GMAT: 740 with very strong verbal

Work experience: (from oldest to current)

- 6 years in the Finnish military, which off approximately 2 years can be counted as work experience (rest was training). Specialized in Logistics. Retired in 2014 with the rank of Lieuetenant. In my last role I

•Lead, trained and supervised a group of 25-35 men. During boot­camp periods (4 months per year) the number was 100 men.
•Responsible for training the Logistics company's leadership and mission control as well as other supporting components. Also trained troops going into Afghanistan and Chad.
•Was in charge of training the logistics battalion's personnel to use the newly implemented logistic management system. I was the only one in the brigade trained to operate the new logistics HQ at the time.

- After retiring as an Army Officer, I worked as a COO for a CPG-startup. In the approximately 1,5 years I worked in this capacity I was

• Responsible for the operational integrity of the production facilities.
• Maintaining effective production rates, end-to-end supply chain management
• Negotiating sub-contractor deals, finding new sales channels

- Currently working for a major, global energy company (think Exxon Mobil, Shell, Total....). I have been with the company for a bit over 2 years as I'm writing this. I have been in three roles with all of them having similarities to one another in the sense that each focus on managing innovation. Paired with my studies in Business Intelligence, I have succesfully translated my background in Leadership and operations to a rewarding and challenging career in IT Innovation space.

• In my first role I redesigned our Upstream-businesses Innovation Delivery Funnel, identifying 16 targets for improvement ranging from managing our processes to improving governance and how we replicate success internally across our different lines of business.

• In my second role I worked as a ''bridge'' between the IT innovation and the business - Negotiating a buy-in and then helping the business to implement new IT innovation (specifically Information Management) that would bring them business value. I had many interesting projects, but the biggest impact I had with a project related to SharePoint where a total landscape restructure through a new solution helped the business improve their performance in almost all of their key performance indicators and saved them over 2 million dollars.

• In my current role that I started in June, I am working as an IT Advisor in my company's Downstream Retail business. Specifically I work in a team that manages our Global Payment Solutions portfolio - Any project that has to do with how we manage the payment landscape of our thousands of facilities across the globe will come to our desk. My job is to focus on the strategy; How can we build a future landscape that is sustainable, agile and fully enables us to use our data to the fullest of potential (data analytics).


Extracurriculars:

Group 1 (Not active anymore)

- President of the high school student government
- Vice President of local Lions Club for one term
- Supporter of War Veteran rights. Throughout the years I have organised and led a street fundraiser for the WW2­-veterans as well as held speeches and participated in other fundraisers.
- President of a consulting club at my Master's University - organised bi-monthly meetings involving business cases, guest lectures and learning tutorials as well as organizing networking opportunities for members
- Board member of my company's Toastmasters club - Co-organised our division's championship event that included several workshops (ranging from Neuro-linguistic programming to body language) in addition to the competition itself. Also solo-hosted our club's annual speech competition. Only just stepped aside from my responsibilities last month.

Group 2 (Currently active)

- Ambassador for the Women's Network at my company. Promoting gender equality at workplace. Organised the International Women's Day this year. Also have personally held Unconscious Bias Awareness workshops at workplace to help our company's employees become more self-aware.

- A support friend for three young women who are recovering from extensive sexual abuse. Each of them have C-PTSD (complex). Most of my time I simply listen to the women, validate their feelings and emotions and work together with their therapist in trying to help them get back on their feet. The work has been incredibly rewarding and I can't even describe how happy even the smallest of improvement in the quality of life of the women makes me :-)

Plans for after school

Short-term I would like to continue in the Innovation Management space and transition into pure tech (think Google, Microsoft etc.). A logical and realistic path for me given my work experience is in the product management side and work my way up from there.

Long term (in 15-20 years) I would like to found my own non-profit organisation that focuses on localized infrastructural makeovers in poor communities - Reshaping the district education system, road and utility infrastructure, local entrepeneurship etc. I have a very detailed elaborate plan, but I feel I'd probably distract you (and the adcoms) too much if I began to open up about it now.


Want to join the Tuck because

- Ever since I began researching the schools years ago, I have had a very special place in my heart reserved for Tuck. They really seem to emphasize the importance of self-reflection, humility and personal integrity. The community seems extremely collaborative and warm and the access to staff (and very helpful and enthusiastic alumni) only made it easier for me to know it is my dream school. Genuine kindness and selflessness is rare and to me any business school that encourages their students to exhibit such behavior is immediately on my good side.

- I'm also an avid hiker and a nature lover, hiking more than a 1000km a year. Knowing I'd have ample access to beautiful nature is a massive plus. I even have plans to hike the ENTIRE APPALACHIAN TRAIL in 100 days prior to starting the program should I get accepted :-)

Hope I didn't bore you with my profile! :-)
