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 (top 3 across the street), 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). I'd like to work as an associate at atop private equity firm upon graduation.

Any feedback would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

Hey there KP,
Good to hear from you.

From where I stand things look mighty good. Female with good grades in a tough double-major from a good school with a great GMAT and strong work experience in a preferred MBA firm. Most excellent. What else do you have in your profile in the way of extras? (sports, community service, extra-currics)?? I think your school choice is a good one, and that you can even add HBS and Wharton if they interest you (and I think they should). Beyond what you have here, all the rest will ride on your essays and goals and recommendations and interview. I'm not so sure your goals are the best simply because the kind of a priori goal of everyone in IB is to get into PE. :) And the schools might be asking: Okay so what does she have that all these others don't? And if you have something, then great! and if not, maybe then tweak your goals a bit to make them more concrete.

Hope this helps, and if you have any further questions just drop them here,
