Hello Admissionado!

Would greatly appreciate your expert consultation based on the following profile below:

Thank you!

Background: 29 M (Asia)
Work experience: 2 Years Rotational Leadership Program in Listed Manufacturing firm in Asia (200 Million Revenue), 6 Months as a Senior Supply Chain Analyst at a technology firm - Microsoft / Amazon / Dell
Extra curriculars: Board at a local non profit (currently), key organiser for company CSR programs, plentiful undergrad leadership curriculars
Undergrad school/major: Top Asian university - 3.45/4.00 GPA
Other education/coursework: CFA Level 1, CAIA Level 1 and 2, FRM Level 1 and 2
Race/nationality: Asian
Sex: Male
GMAT Score : 780 Q51 V46
Undergrad GPA: 3.45/4.00 Economics
MBA Info Goal of MBA: Transit into Front Office Investment Banking Target schools: Harvard / Wharton / Booth / Columbia / MIT Sloan (Applying 2017 Fall) LBS/INSEAD (Backup)
[Concerns will probably be the lack of stellar work experience and transition from Supply Chain to Finance as a post mba goal. Should i instead apply from a Manufacturing/Logistics angle or slant? eg Post MBA Goal: Global Leadership development program in a Logistics MNC)

Thank you in advance!

Hey dude,
Great to hear from you!
So obviously your GMAT is super impressive, and that will definitely be a solid basis for application to top 10 schools. Being in a rotational leadership program and being ont he board of a non-profit are also two very impressive points.

The weaknesses I see are:
1- demographics
2. slightly low GPA (not a huge deal, but still)

The questions I am asking myself are:
1. What did you REALLY do at work? How valuable is that? How was we use that?
2. What's your story? Why do you want to get an MBA? What are your goals? And how does your experience fit with that?

Undergrad GPA: 3.45/4.00 Economics
