Mr. Aspiring HealthTech Investor

About Me:

I am a Big 4 technology consultant coming from a top engineering program. I am passionate about technology, specifically emerging technologies such as AI. I am looking forward to the many applications of technology in healthcare, and potentially starting my own company in the future. I am also interested in finance, specifically VC.

I am looking for weaknesses in my application, and want to plan for my future applications. My application dates are not set in stone, and I am willing to wait to maximize my chances. My gpa is a bit low due to extenuating circumstances (sick family member, traveled between campus and home often) and any advice on how to deal with this would be helpful.


Undergrad School: University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

Undergrad Major: Computer Engineering

GPA: 3.2 (extenuating circumstances)

GMAT: 720

Age: 24,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Undergraduate Research (co-authored a paper), Undergraduate Consulting Club (leadership position), Helped high schools students that are not fluent in English with college admissions

Work History:

Title: Staff Consultant

Industry: Consulting

Company: Global

Length of Employment: 2 yrs, 6 mos

Big Life Wins:

– Assisted healthtech company with COVID application to help trace infections.
– Published a paper on healthcare technology during my undergrad with dozens of citations.

Post MBA Goal:

I am very interested in healthcare technology and had the opportunity to work with a major player in this industry during my time at my Big 4 firm. In the future, I want to become a venture capitalist and invest in companies that can change the world, specifically in the healthtech space.


Target School: Harvard

Status: Open

Considering: Wharton, Stanford GSB

Having a healthcare background myself, I think your skills in engineering and consulting will be very attractive to healthtech companies. While I think you have a lot of strengths in your profile, I do think waiting another year or two before applying to HBS would strengthen your application.
