I was hoping to get feedback on my profile.

1). White female, third year investment banking analyst at a bulge bracket bank BofA/Barclays/Deutsche in a coverage group, had a marketing job and a research assistant in a lab job in college. Ranked one of the top analysts, will have good recs.
2). GMAT 740 cumulative, 49 Q, 46 V
3). Graduated from a top 10 university UChicago/Northwestern/Duke with a double major in psychology and political science. Cummulative GPA 3.32, switched major before senior year from Economics to political science. Have a D and an F in economics (sophomore and junior year), D in regular calculus, C in multivariable. However, (overloading, taking 5 classes) got 4.0 both semesters of senior year and have 3.93 major GPA in political science and 3.48 in psychology. Got A's in statistics and accounting senior year.
4). In college, did a well-known prestigious civic engagement program after sophomore year, was involved on the executive board of the investment club. Post college, involved in company's charity work; fluent in Polish, Russian
5). Series 7, 63
6). Targets: Columbia and NYU. Will likely be applying R1 2013-2014. Will also be applying to Kellogg, Booth, Fuqua, Tuck, Yale, Cornell and Emory.
7). Private Equity

Any feedback would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

I see you as a very strong candidate despite some issues with grades. The good news is that you recovered well and have proven yourself more than capable in a demanding professional setting. Your ranking near the top of you analyst class is definitely going to be appreciated at many of the schools you are targeting.

As for which schools you should apply to, my first thought with you is that Wharton and Columbia are great fits. Do not be afraid to apply to Wharton, especially since you have many things to compensate for your grades. Just be aware that here, all of your margin of error has been used and your application has to be strong, compelling and competitive. The same is true for Columbia.

As for the other schools you are targeting, the ones that I see the best fit are Kellogg, Johnson and Tuck. I would recommend that you replace Emory with Ross. I would also have you reconsider applying to Yale.

Dziękuję jeszcze raz i życzę powodzenia.
