Thank you in advance for taking the time to review my profile.
Please review my thoughts and backgrounds below and advise.

General Information
1. Age - 31
2. GMAT - 700
3. BSBA from Top 30 school in the U.S.
4. GPA - 2.9
5. Working experience - 5 years
6. Goal - In short-term, I plan to continue to stay within my current industry and gain experiences. The long-term plan is to source capitals and launch my own fund.
7. Target program platform- Due to a personal issue, I am only looking for a part-time program. I am willing to travel to out of state weekend program if admitted.
8. Certificate/License - Passed CFA Level 1 exam. I plan to pass it all remaining levels as soon as possible.

Work experience (not sure how much details you will need):
I have worked in the commercial real estate investment industry since my graduation. I am currently a senior analyst in mid-size investment firm.
I do portfolio management aspect of the investment and focus on performing quantitative analyses on our portfolio. I plan to continue honing my skill sets and learn more from MBA program so I can launch a quant-driven investment fund in the commercial real estate market.

Low GPA:
I had worked 40+ hours/week in my first two years in college. I had to work while I was studying to help my family to go through the mortgage crisis.
I was able to reduce my part-time/tutoring hours a lot by the time I entered the junior year, and my report card shows clear improvements since then.
I am planning to use an option essay, if available, to explain the situations I was in and show things I have learned and how I had improved my grades dramatically as I was able to focus in my school more.

Target schools:
* Emory, Stern, Booth (All part-time platform - I am open to relocation so weekday and weekend are both an option.)

I would greatly appreciate any comments and thoughts.

Thank you,

Hi there, and thanks for writing! You can address your GPA, and the circumstances that led to it, in the optional essay. Passing all CFA levels will assure the AdCom of your academic abilities as well. Regarding the PT program, the admissions committees are going to be most interested in seeing the progress you've made in your work experience to date, and how strongly your recommenders can attest to your performance and future leadership potential. You also want to make it very clear in your essays why you're interested in launching your own fund - what motivates you. If you do these things very well, the programs (especially Emory and Stern) should not be out of reach. Hope that helps a bit!
