Dear Paul,

Thank you in advance for evaluating my profile. I appreciate it.

I am looking to apply to B-school in the fall of 2009

Nationality: American Caucasion
Age: 23
Education: Bachelors in Business, Ivy League, 2007; 3.6 GPA
GMAT: 770, 6.0
Work Experience: 2.5 years at application in Management Consulting at firm ranked 10-20 on Vault. Received top performance review in 2008. Hoping to add leadership experience in 2009—this will be leadership of 1-2 people. Hopefully will be promoted in December 2009.
Extra Curriculars:
1. Vice President of Fraternity alumni association, serve on the board of trustees (the alumni association is incorporated, as we own properties around the university). 500+ members, make decisions on renovations, budgets, etc.
2. Founded a startup business around student-abroad activity; the business failed, but I learned some good lessons.
3. Big Brothers Big Sisters Volunteer

Goals
Continue in Management Consulting after MBA, so I can accelerate my career. I want to apply in 2009 because it is a natural break in my career, after the 3 year analyst program; long run, I want to found my own Management Consulting firm

Can you please provide me feedback on my chances at
1. HBS
2. Stanford
3. Wharton
4. Chicago
5. Columbia (ED?)
6. NYU

Do you think I should add other schools? What areas of my profile do you think I could supplement, with a year until application?

Thank you for your help

Yankees2008,

Your 'academic' qualifications (GPA, undergrad institution, GMAT) are outstanding and justify the list of schools you posted. Your fraternity VP is a great leadership asset and your upcoming professional leadership experience will help too. Still, even though HBS and Stanford are open to less-experienced applicants, they seem to favor applicants who also bring some 'unusualness' to the table, so I'm not sure you're quite in their wheelhouse. But I would not discourage you from applying to either: they are your 'longshots/reaches.' I think you've got a definite shot (and more than that at NYU) at the other schools, and that's saying a lot given your relative lack of work experience.

If your goal is consulting then I think you should add Kellogg and Tuck to your list. I would spend the next year ramping up your leadership in every way you can (it's good, but the more impact the better).

Good luck,
