Thank you for taking the time to review my profile! I’m currently planning to apply in the 2018 cycle but would appreciate any advice on if the extra year would really strengthen my application.
Target Schools: Wharton, Sloan, Columbia, Tuck, and Fuqua

Application Overview:
Personal: 25 Y/O Caucasian Male
GMAT: 760 (50Q, 44V), AWA 5, IR 8. First attempt.
Education: Graduated 2014 form Mid-Tier Ivy, Double major in Physics and Economics with a 3.13 GPA.
Work Experience:

o Post College: FP&A Supervisor (two promotions) for Fortune 50 Tech/Telecom on the Corporate Forecasting/Budget team. Responsibilities include: analyzing forecasts from Divisions for potential risk or opportunity, modelling future 12 month revenue for Budget, distributing targets to Division and HQ teams, delivering monthly Forecast to Executive Management, etc.
o In College: Summer Research Assistant at the Air Force Research Labs for two years, TA for an intro E&M course, and Astronomy Tutor

Extracurricular:

o Post College: Young Professional mentor at my company, we meet up with interns/co-ops over the summer. Other professional extracurricular are scant, I spend my remaining time running (completed three marathons and a couple halfs post graduation) as well as traveling when possible. Job isn’t a normal 9-5 more 8-6 normally and 8-8 during busy times.
o In College: Treasurer of my Fraternity, managed a $10K+ budget and communicated with Alumni network regarding donations and scholarships. Member of the Outsdoors Club and Quiz Bowl Team.

Essays:I believe I’m a halfway decent writer and should be able to put together a good essay.
Recs:Both should be good. One from a former boss and one from current VP.

MBA Goals:
• Short-Term Goal – Work with a strategy consulting firm focusing on smaller high growth opportunities.
• Long-Term Goal – Translate consulting experience into Corporate Strategy roll for a high growth business. Looking to be a part of the nascent operations of a company and to guide its strategy into the future. Not ruling out starting my own company if inspiration strikes.

Thanks again for taking a look! Feel free to ask any questions.

I think you are thorough with the drill. You have covered almost all the aspects to get your candidature up to the expectations of the top notch school. Prepare well for the interviews. All the very best!!

Hello Entropy67!

Apologies for the delay in response! So firstly, CONGRATS on the GMAT. That is a totally awesome score. BUT...I'm a little worried about your GPA. Just being honest. I'd love to know more about what happened and why. Your challenge is that the top b-schools can choose from lots of people with great GMATs and great GPAs. So this means there is extra special pressure on your recs and extracurriculars and everything else. You may need to be a bit more flexible with your school choices. I like that you have Tuck and Fuqua on your list. I'd like you to add Stern and Cornell. I also highly encourage you to set up a free consultation with us. Link in my profile!
