WE: 3 years at a F10 global company in a leadership supply chain rotational program - where I managed a portfolio of contracts totaling over $1B in annual spend and managed contractors on a construction of a $20B manufacturing plant. I also received my supply chain management certification (CPSM) during this role.
As of last year I'm now working as a finance partner at smaller company ($3B revenue) - no direct reports, but I have a dotted line report to the CFO. Responsibilities include providing market reports to the CFO and CEO and running the impact of mergers in market and looking at potential acquisitions.

GMAT: 730 (48Q 42V)

GPA: 3.4 (majored in Economics at a top 50 university) I took several courses in computer science (data structures, discrete math) and minored in Accounting

EC: Was a recruiter for 2 years (at my previous F10 company) for MIT and Harvard. Traveled multiple times a year to Cambridge for career fairs to recruit and interview PHD and MBA students. Also gave presentations to certain MIT clubs that my previous employer sponsored. (I feel a deep connection to MIT, hence it is my top pick)

I started a community mentoring program to help students apply to colleges and get connected with individuals in a career they are interested in.

Built my own iPhone app to help charities receive donations, but the app failed last year due to insufficient funding. Before the failure I had an operating LLC with a team of developers.

Hi there, and thanks for writing! You have a well-rounded profile, with substantive work experience, good academics, and good outside involvement. For you, I think that a couple of keys to your candidacy will be to 1.) highlight fully your professional and personal impact on your resume and application 2.) explain what drives your goals - why do you want to pursue consulting? and 3.) executing your applications with excellence, including making a strong case for why each program is a strong fit for you based on its culture and resources within/outside of the classroom.

The schools you're targeting are quite competitive, but not out of question if you do the above. If you'd like to discuss how you can approach these, I recommend signing up for a free consultation here: https://www.mbamission.com/consult/?dis ... admissions

Hope that helps a bit! :)
