Hello,

Can you please evaluate my profile?

US Citizen, Male, Asian American
Age at matriculation- 26
GMAT- 700
Undergrad School- Community College for 2 years then UC Riverside for 2 years
Undergrad GPA- 3.8 Transfer GPA & 3.15 at a 4 Year GPA- Combined GPA is roughly 3.47
Degree- Bachelors in business administration

Work Exp - Wealth Advisor for 1.5 years at Guardian Life
I am on the Client Advisory side and function as a consultant, of sorts, working with the client-side (Stakeholders, CFOs, etc). to strategize insurance programs, business tax planning, and estate planning. This firm worked highly in a team environment.

After that I began working at AAA Insurance as a Product Management Analyst. This role married two interests of mine, data analytics and gave me the ability to work on big projects within our company. This position required a high level of team collaboration with many other business units as well as helped develop my data analytic skills. This role and this department is considered one of the more "prestigious" within the company as our projects directly effected revenue, customer retention and growth. I will have worked here for 2.5 years when I matriculate at an MBA school. Prospect for me to receive a promotion looks slim not because I am undeserving but because it takes a long time for people to get promoted (i.e. all the managers in my department were working for 4+ years before they got promoted). I have stood out among the analysts the joined at the same time as I did for my leadership and team collaboration skills.

Extra Curriculars-
I have been the Vice President of a Young Entrepreneurs non profit organization for 2 years. The objective of this group is to promote an environment for young entrepreneurs to network, incubate ideas, form partnerships and learn from experts. We are also involved in working with at-risk high school youth in helping them create and start businesses through another Young Entrepreneur Academy. My responsibility is to increase our member base and increase participation at our events. We have grown to 2,000+ members in 2 years and average 25+ members per event.

I really want to mix in my entrepreneurial desires although I work in a corporate environment. I would like to get into strategy consulting after my MBA and after that join a young, exciting start up that is poised to be a mover and shaker in the world.

I take health and wellness seriously, I eat right and consistently exercise 3 days a week and play basketball 4 days a week. Not sure if I can incorporate that in any way.

Goals with MBA:
Short Term: Management Consulting
Long Term: C-Suite Executive

Target schools: Tuck, Darden, Ross, Cornell, UNC, Emory,& CMU. If you can I would appreciate if you can give me some rating or % chance with each school.

I see Emory and CMU as safety. The rest could be stretch but with certainly a good possibility of success if you have strong applications. Aim for R1 and consider getting some coaching to present your strongest applications. Here is a link to a free consult: https://stratusprep.com/admissions/busi ... b-visitor/

Thank you for the response back!

I have one question: do you know whether B-schools will combine my gpa's from community college and UCR and look at it as a 3.47 or only look at my UCR gpa? I know they require me to send in all transcripts from where I completed my undergrad education so I am assuming they will look at it combined?

Thank you.
