Hello everyone

I am still young to apply for a deferred program. That is why I would like you to analyze my profile and tell me what I should develop to have a better chance of getting into H/S/W deferred's programs.

Age:20
Nationality: Argentina
Undergraduate degree: Industrial Engineering 2,5 years completed out of 5. GPA: 8.88/10
Gmat: not taken yet but I expect to score 720-740
Work experiencie: none. but I will try to do an internship before applying
Extracurricular:
1) I won a chess tournament in high school
2) 3 years in a catholic group doing works of mercy. 1 year leading a group of 14 people
3) In charge of the people who cooked for 150 people in a "retreat" for 4 days.
4) 3rd position in a business competition. (100 groups competing)
5) I used to buy stocks and sell them just to learn and understand the market.
6) I was the vicepresident of a clan made up of 150 people which was in the top 3. In lineage (it's a game). Before that I also had my own clan made up of 52 people. On the hand, I used to organized teams for training made up of 8 people(everyday)
7) Also played another game, where I had my own clan made up of 36 people. (jamaikamu)
8) I used to create jewelry with a friend when we were 8 years old and sell it in our neighborhood
I would really appreciate every piece of feedback

I would say keep your GPA high, make sure you hit those targets for the GMAT, secure some strong internships, and continue to develop your leadership skills via extra-curricular opportunities and volunteer work. You are a few years away from applying to these programs so try and have some fun in the meantime!

A few thoughts for you patto:
  1. Your GPA and GMAT should make for a good academic arc. Look at scoring at or even above the higher end of your current target range.
  2. The deferred programs are very selective in general so you need to do a lot 'more' than your peers. For instance, if doing one internship is the usual norm, how can you be neck and shoulders above others? Maybe two internships? Or something really substantial?
  3. The ECs arc looks decent at the moment but ideally, you should think of doing in a far more structured and formal manner.
  4. Finally, not completely relevant, but you will find the articles here and here very useful in this initial process.

Hope this helps some.

Cheers,
