Hi Everyone,

I would really appreciate your feedback on my profile.

The 3 schools that interest me the most are: INSEAD, MIT and Harvard. I'm also highly interested in HEC Paris, IE, LBS, Berkeley and Stanford. I'm most interested in entrepreneurship (a goal of mine would be to start a business post MBA), technology and sustainable development.

I'm French, male and 29 years old (1988).

I just took the GMAT and scored 750: Q48, V44, IR8 and 6 on AWA.

My undergrad was a BBA in an American Program from a French Business School (ISG in Paris). The program had its own administration and was quite "segregated" from the rest of the school. GPA-wise, I got 5 Bs and 24 As, for a total of 29 classes (145 credits). I'm not exactly sure what it means in terms of GPA. You can hopefully help me figure this out. All of our grades were on a scale of 20 and then converted to letter grades. Anything above 15.5 was an A. My average was a 16.4. I was on the Dean's list every semester, received First Class Honours and got a 18.5 grade on my thesis.

Before going to B-School I lived 1 year in Texas as an exchange student. Then, during B-School, I studied a semester in Madrid. After graduating, I worked for about 6 months in Paris before moving to Montreal, Canada, where I'm living to this day.


"RELEVANT" WORK EXPERIENCE

  • I joined a small software / tech agency as an intern in 2010.
  • I was hired as a Project Manager in 2011 after my internship completion
  • Late 2012: after 2 years I was promoted to Director of Project Management
  • Late 2014: another 2 years later I became partner in the firm and VP of Projects
  • Since May 2017: I have been VP of Operations
  • Main responsibilities: business development, team management (Project Management, Support Team and Creative Studio), mentoring & training employees, hiring and employee performance review, problem escalation management, grants/tax credits management.
  • There are two other partners in the firm, the President/founder, and the VP Technology/co-founder. We currently employ about 35 people and have significantly invested in a new division dedicated to Virtual Reality Therapy which we hope to turn into its own company within the next 6 to 12 months.

It's my first time sharing all this, so please let me know what missing information would be helpful (or what info is superfluous) in order for you to better evaluate my profile and chances.

Thanks a lot for your time!

Hadrien

Thanks for sharing your profile. really like your background and it is fairly unique with top scores/marks and a track record of increasing responsibilities in your work experience. I think you are in play at all of your target schools! Berkeley should definitely be on your list so consider formally adding that school to your core three

Thanks for the feedback Dozie, appreciate you taking the time to get back to me! The more I look at it, the more interesting Berkeley becomes!
