Would appreciate if you can provide feedback on my case.

28 yr old Filipino Male with green card

Full-time work experience:
- 2.5 years as an Investment Banking Analyst (government financial institution) focusing on infrastructure investments;
- 3.5 years as an Investment Banking Associate with Top Tier ASEAN Investment Bank(was promoted to Associate)
- Was supposed to be promoted to senior analyst in my first job but was poached by a multinational investment bank (top tier in South East Asia)
- Spearheaded the establishment of an analyst pool program which enables analysts to rotate on different investment banking products (saves the firm extra cost and increases efficiency of working teams)
- 6 years Investment banking experience in M&A, Equity, and Debt financing

740 GMAT

Undergrad info:
Top 3 Philippine University
Applied Economics; 2.167 GPA
Low GPA due to father being diagnosed with kidney failure, and heart attack; mother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, stage 1 breast cancer

Significant college and post-college extra-curricular activities:
Undergrad extra-curricular: University student government, economics organization
Post undergrad: Volunteer for Non profit organizations like Teach for the Philippines, Gawad Kalinga (reach out to poor communities and teach the under privileged)

Post-MBA goal:
Transition to Private Equity or Investment Banking in the US. Strong recommendation letters from high level executives (President & CEO, Managing Director, and Executive Director). President & CEO of the firm is an alumnus of Kellogg.

I know most of the schools I will be applying to will be a reach due to my GPA but below are my dream schools:
- Wharton
- Columbia
- Yale
- Booth
- Kellogg

Would appreciate any advice. Thank you.

Thanks for reaching out to us! We're happy to help you start your MBA journey. However, we are in the process of relaunching our forum with a new format and will not be able to respond to requests until that process is completed. We will no longer be providing straight profile reviews because at the end of the day, your competitiveness at different schools relies on more than just a few stats or data points; we think a conversation is a much better way to provide that feedback and help you think through your strengths and development areas. We provide a free 30 minute consultation for that reason. As such, our new forum will focus more on the specific and burning questions that you may have for our expert team that can help you as well as others who are reading these posts. More detail to come.

If you reached out for the 2017-2018 application season and we did not get to your question, we sincerely apologize. Due to overwhelming demand, we reached full capacity and completely sold-out well in advance of the deadlines and stopped taking new consultations or profile evaluation requests so that we could focus on ensuring that our clients had the best possible support during the process. We're hopeful that your questions were answered elsewhere on the site, and we wish you best of luck for application success!
