Hello Square One Prep,

I am a Chilean lawyer who wants to pursue a Masters in Management program in Europe (target schools: Stockholm School of Economics, Bocconi, ESCP, ESSEC and HEC). I look forward to combine my specialty in international business law and corporate governance with studies in management, in particular strategical and organizational topics, due to the natural overlap that law and management have in this area. Therefore, my main goal is to work later in consultancy in both these topics, using my analytical law skills and my awareness of the importance of legal issues as an advantage. As as back up plan, I could return to my country and aim to become legal manager of a company, as my profile would be very unique in my country.


Background info:
Chilean, Male, 25 years old.

Test scores:
- GMAT: 660 (Q 40, V 41). *The quant score is my biggest concern.
- TOEFL: 112.

Academic info:
- Degree: Law.
- University: Graduated from the most prestigious law school in my country and the highest ranked university in Spanish-speaking Latin America (QS and Times).
- GPA: 3.0/4.0 (i worked while studying, and also grades at my faculty are not particularly high either).
- Specialization: International Business Law.
- Exchanges: 1 semester at Northwestern University (classes in Political Science) and 1 semester at TU München School of Management, taking introductory classes in strategy and organization.
- Assistantships: Research assistant at my university's corporate governance center.
- Awards & Publications: 2nd place in a Deloitte national competition on corporate governance research; 1 publication in my university's corporate governance research section.

Work experience:
- 6 months in a prestigious Big Law Firm in Santiago.
- 3 months in my university's innovation center, doing intellectual property related tasks.
- 6 months in a Chilean VC firm. Legal area.

Extracurriculars:
- Co-founded a innovation and entrepreneurship club in my Law School.
- Been volunteering for more than 6 months in an international human rights NGO, organizing activities for migrants and refugees.
- Finalist in a university-wide startups competition. Leading the first ever Law School team to be chosen to participate in this competition.


I know my GMAT quant scores are very low (no surprise, I am a lawyer). I've been thinking of taking some MOOCs in finance and accounting so I can show the adcoms that I have a real desire to improve my quant skills and that my low quant scores are due to lack of formal education in this subject rather than lack of capabilities.


Thank you very much in advance for you help. Highly appreciated!!

Hi there -
Thanks for reaching out for a free evaluation. In lieu of writing a lengthy reply, I'd rather we connect via Skype/phone so we may have a real dialogue and you can ask me questions as I give you an assessment. Additionally, I will be able to offer you a much more robust assessment if I am able to ask you more questions. If doing a free consult via skype/phone interests you, please contact me directly at kathrynlucas@squareoneprep.com.

I look forward to hearing from and speaking with you soon. Thanks again for reaching out.
