Hi everyone. Hope you are all doing well as decisions come in.

I am a fresh college grad (21 years old) working full-time and decided to sign up for the GMATs a while ago as I wanted to eventually go for my MBA and improve my business acumen. I took the test a week ago and wanted some feedback on where my current credentials put me:

My top five schools are HBS, Columbia, UPenn Wharton, UChicago Booth , and NYU Stern. I am particularly interested in strategy and finance as I would like to take my BSchool experience into consulting or business development after graduating.

I am an American male, 21 years old (1996).

I took the GMAT earlier this month and scored 750: V42, Q49, IR7 and 6 on the AWA

My undergraduate degree came from George Washington University in DC where I was a political science major and business minor. My GPA was 3.96 (Summa Cum Laude) with all A's and A-'s. I was on the Dean's list every semester, named to multiple academic honors - including being the top ranked student in my major -and was the President of the Political Science Honors Society. I also graduated in three years.

While in undergrad, I served more than 400 hours of community service, leading a local food recovery and hunger relief non-profit in DC. I was a University Student Justice and tutor. I also interned at the House of Representatives, Senate, and White House, as well as serving as the contracting lead for a local start up. Not sure if these add anything to my business school profile, but they are on my resume.

As far as work experience, I started work in June for one of the "Big-5" Defense Contractors being part of their "leadership development program" for high-level incoming employees. My job is in contracts - for defense companies a mix of account administration, finance, legal, and general management. Will likely be promoted to next career levels over next two years.

I am new to this whole experience, so please let me know if there are gaps, red flags, or unnecessary information in what I have provided.

Thanks in advance for feedback!

Thanks for sharing your profile Cooper. Fantastic profile at such a young age. Your numbers are really strong and will put you in play at all of your target schools along with great ECs. Now you will need to get some meaningful work experience to crack your target programs. You have a good job now it is time to drive some impact/results and start developing your leadership and teamwork experiences. Unlike others your profile is only missing the work experience so work really hard on that while staying engaged within your community so your ECs don't lag post grad. Keep to this plan and you will be in good shape
