Mr. Aspiring HealthTech Investor
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.
