Hello! I'm preparing myself to apply for an MBA next year, and I would really appreciate your profile evaluation and some help on defining my targets (given my background, GPA, GMAT and post-MBA goals).
* South american, male, 29 yo
* GPA: 2.4 (sad) in business (local top business school)
* GMAT: did not take yet, but expecting 720+ (based on mock exams I took)
* Work Experience:
- 4 years / Structured Finance (Asset Backed Securities) in a middle-sized well-known local investment bank / promoted yearly / participated on several interesting deals, some of them as the the main responsible analyst (one of the deals was a ~USD 200M public offering)
- 1 year / Associate - Structured Finance in a very small boutique / resigned on March
- Just started as an Associate in a new small investment boutique (Structured Finance again)
* I'm going to take the CFA Level I exam in December (pretty confident that I will pass)
* Voluntary Work: responsible for the financial management in an NGO which helps refugees (started 1 week ago)
* My post-MBA goal: Investment Banking / US

From what I've read and given my profile, I'm trying to find out my best options from: Booth, Columbia, NYU, MIT, Yale, Tuck, Ross, Darden, UCLA Anderson, Duke.

I would really appreciate your insights!

Hi there -
Thanks for reaching out for a free evaluation. In lieu of writing a lengthy reply, I'd rather we connect via Skype/phone so we may have a real dialogue and you can ask me questions as I give you an assessment. Additionally, I will be able to offer you a much more robust assessment if I am able to ask you more questions. If doing a free consult via skype/phone interests you, please contact me directly at kathrynlucas@squareoneprep.com.

I look forward to hearing from and speaking with you soon. Thanks again for reaching out.
