Hello Greg,

I just rewrote my GMAT and would like to try this again. I would really appreciate your help in reviewing my profile below.

Ethnicity/Nationality: Chinese/Canadian
Age: 30
Work Experience: 7/8 Years
GMAT: 730 (Q49, V40, AWA6, IR5)
Undergrad: University of Western Ontario in Canada majored in Finance/Accounting (3.0 GPA)

Work Experience:

2 Years at Philip Morris Int. - Market/Business Analyst within the Business intelligence team
- First Full time job out of school.
- Worked with supply chain, CRM, Marketing Data to provide solutions for Sales & Marketing.
- Was promoted once in between from a regional role to a head office role
- Lead several company wide projects (SKU Rationalization, Implement new CRM, etc) with multi-million dollar impacts.

1 Year at Spin Master Ltd (Up and coming Canadian Toy Company) - Forecasting Analyst supporting the Wal-Mart US Account
- Worked on the largest Customer/Account at the Company
- Received Vendor of the Year Award from Wal-Mart

2 Years at Spectrum Brands - Category Management for several lines of Small Kitchen Appliances
- Started as a Category Advisor for Wal-Mart Canada (supported the customer/buyer with retail strategies and execution)
- Was promoted in a year to Category Manager overseeing the category for total Canadian retail channel (Multiple large customers)
- Had 1 direct report post promotion. Grew sales by double digits

2 Years at Kraft Heinz Canada - Manager, Sales Advisor
- Joined because of opportunity to work at Tier 1 CPG company
- Worked on the Loblaws Account (#1 Grocery Chain in Canada) for several large categories (Coffee, Peanut Butter)
- Sold through all innovation items and doubled distribution/shelf face at LCL for my category.
- Worked on several large exclusivity and Preferred Vendor deals to align customer to a shared growth plan.

Current: 20 months thus far on a Canadian Smaller CPG company - Key Account Manager
- Moved into a Key Account Manager/Sales from Sales support
- Responsible for the P&L of Loblaws, Canada's largest grocery chain and the company's largest customer
- Role can be summarized to building relationships, developing a sales plan, executing the plan and delivering financial targets
- Biggest accomplishment here was that in 2017 where the account had a negative trade balance of half a million I was able to balance in 2018

I did a couple summers of pro-bono consulting with a Non-Profit Organization that organize teams and that lends help to various small businesses/NPOs seeking these services. Typical engagements relates to building marketing or operation strategy and are about 8 weeks long.

Post MBA Short Term: Move into a Strategy/Brand role within CPG.
Short/Long Term: Move into Senior executive management.
Reason for MBA: Move on to the next level in business management. My experiences have been largely executional and I'd like to be more strategic.
I have changed a few more jobs than I would've liked because of changing interest and because of restructures.

Targeting schools:



What are my chances for those 6 schools and is age a liability at this point?

Thank you

Hi waybo,

Thank you very much for your note, and apologies for the overdue reply.

Avanti Prep experienced record levels of applicant demand this application season. As a result, my work with clients was super-active from R1 applications, through R1 Interview Prep, into R2 applications, and most recently through R2 Interview Prep. I naturally had to prioritize my work with applicants over the Forum, so I apologize for not getting back to you.

That said, if you are still in the application game and are looking for help with Interview Prep, if your results didn't go as you had hoped this year and you're not sure why, or if you are starting to mobilize toward applying / re-applying this fall, I would be more than happy to connect. You can reference the links below for more information and/or regarding next steps.
