Profile Evaluation and Suggestions for Improvement  [#permalink]

Hi,

I'd like a profile evaluation and more importantly suggestions for area for improvement.

- 25, Asian male
- Undergrad: 3.6 GPA in Engineering at a top non-Ivy (UChicago, Duke, etc.)
- GMAT: 750 (48 Q/44 V, 8/8 IR, 6/6 AWA)

The computer froze at the end of the Q section. I could have definitely gotten a 770/780 but I figured a 750 is good enough and not worth sitting 4 hours through the test again. Plus, I studied engineering so that should demonstrate that I'm not weak in that area right?

- Work: Started off as a consultant at a technology company and moved towards software engineering and currently at a fintech start-up, took about 6 months off in-between to build my own start-up and am actively working on products/projects (dream is to go into VC/entrepreneurship)
Demonstrated leadership at each stop along the way, leading projects and taking ownership of things until delivery
- Extracurriculars: fitness (weightlifting, marathon training), was president of fraternity in college, tutoring/teaching
-Goal: Learn about finance and develop my network => to build products that interest me and are good for the world
- Targets: M7 (not worth IMO for the high tuition cost and opportunity cost else)

Thank you so much!

Hi Ascendingup,

How much is your total work experience? as I understand you have changed three jobs so far, with one being your startup.
B-schools are happy to field entrepreneurs, however proven success is a sign of further success in the future. they would like to know about your entrepreneurial journey - what you have done, achieved and why an MBA is necessary at this point.
