Hi everyone, my first post so bear with me. I'm planning on applying to the Harvard MBA admissions cycle in September 2017. I know its a bit early, but i want some time to organise myself especially because my job is so busy etc. etc.

so here is my profile:

Country: Australian citizen (although i am of Korean descent)

Education: BSc Mathematics and Economics at London School of Economics (UK) graduated with First Class Honours (ranked in top 10% of my year group).
MPhil in Economics at Cambridge University (ranked quite average in cohort).

Work Experience: Spent my last 3 years working in the Sales and Trading division of a mid tier American bulge bracket in London. Before that, internships in Big Four consulting, a major British bank and a small accounting firm (all in Korea).

GMAT: 730. Decent quant score, less good in verbal.

Extracurriculars:: President of a medium sized society during undergrad. Decent amount of community service as well as volunteer work with my company as well as in my personal life. Advisor to a tech startup in my spare time

Age:27

Goals: To move into a hedge fund and one day start my own hedge fund/fintech company.

Assuming i get decent recommendations, essays etc. What would you say my chances are?

You have a really strong profile with your GPA/GMAT and work experience in line with the typical admit class at HBS. Now this is HBA so thousands of qualified applicants get dinger every year so being qualified is not always enough. You want to focus on highlighting areas of your profile and past experiences that make you stand out from the pack.
