Age: 27, South Asian, American

Undergrad: Top 10 Public School (Top 5 Undergraduate Business Program)

GPA: 3.65

Work:
-2 Years as a Financial Analyst in a Healthcare commericial/corporate banking group at one of the 4 largest commercial banks in the US. Performed financial analysis of investment grade healthcare systems and developed a strong understanding of the provider space
-3 Years as a Management Consultant for a small healthcare consulting firm.I worked on projects with national healthcare medicaid managed care organizations over 6-7 states so I gained a lot of experience on the payer space and experience with the medicaid/medicare space in a multiple number of states. I've gained experience leading my own work streams and my recommenders (Partner, Senior Manager) can speak to my leadership ability and my client interactions very well.

Other:
-In college, volunteered abroad as an HIV/AIDs educator for a summer
-Currently involved in a few volunteering organizations but about to start working with a high school mentorship program this fall

GMAT
-680 (42Q, 41V)
-690 (48Q 37V).

Goals for MBA:

-Healthcare. I'm passionate about the industry and I don't want to change industries. I want to leverage my experience in both the finance/provider and management consulting/payer space and move towards hospital/provider strategy. With that said, I'm targeting schools with strong placements/programs within healthcare.

List: Fuqua, Ross, Kellogg, Tuck, Yale,

Any advice, tips, chances? Are these reaches?


Well, you have a pretty good profile, although my offhand dirrst reaction would be that these are all reaches unless you can boost your GMAT by 20+ points.

with Tuck and Kellogg being the toughest. And Ross the easiest in the list.


But still, if you think there's a good chance, that is what I would consider first. If it's really not an option because of timing etc, then my advice would be to get mving now on your applications, expand your list to Top20/25 and apply to more schools rather than less.

Cheerio,
