I was hoping you could provide some insight on my profile. I would like to get an idea of what schools I should consider applying to. Schools on my shortlist are: UCLA, McCombs, Duke, Foster, Owen. This is a very fluid list and willing so add/delete based on recs.

25 year old White Male
BBA Finance and Management from a probably not well known state uni: 4.0 GPA
GMAT: 650 (Q 44, V36)
WE : Will have 4 years at Merrill Lynch as a financial advisor and analyst for two Global Institutional Consulting teams
Community : Serve on the Board of Directors for three organizations: Big Brothers Big Sisters of NM, BBBS Foundation, and the 20-30 Club (a childrens charity non-profit).
Post MBA goals - Transition to work in either marketing or consulting, haven't decided exactly what yet (but I will by applications).

Thank you!

Hi there,

My first thought is that being an adviser for ML is very entrepreneurial, right? If you can really think through your goals, I think you have a strong story there about leadership, teamwork, taking risks, etc. But you want to consider how your past is guiding what you want to do in the future - it needs to make sense.

For the schools, have you considered retaking the GMAT? Try for a higher score - even 30 points higher puts you in another category altogether. Given that it sounds like you have a good story, you have a 4.0 GPA, and you have solid extracurriculars, I say try to get that GMAT score up and shoot higher!

Hope that helps!
