    Hi Mr. Big 4! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant weighing in on your profile. A promotion within 6 months is impressive, especially within a Big 4 firm as they tend to operate more strictly regarding promotion guidelines. You also have very impressive academic stats — with your strong GPA, the CA and CFA, and GMAT that is well above Wharton’s average. You are applying from a competitive pool (Indian applicants and Big 4 applicants) but I think those stats will help you stand out. They’re not enough though, since MBA admissions is a holistic process. I’m mostly curious about why now is the best time for you to pursue your MBA, and while I’ve seen others pursue a Big 4 to Investment Bankign …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. You have some very impressive stats, even for your overrepresented demographic. Wharton and other top schools are so competitive that they routinely turn away people with such impressive stats so your job is to show what’s behind the stats. What I find intriguing is your failed startup in Fintech. I bet there was quite a bit of learning and growth that came from that! Don’t shy away from that failure — explain what you learned and how you grew and why you need two years in an MBA program to make you more successful in your next endeavor. Speaking of which — why investment banking after the MBA? Where does that come from? You’ll want to explain …

    Hi, this is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. Congratulations on excellent academic credentials and also on the early promotion. Like the fact that you are working in transactions and diligence at big 4 instead of working on tax and assurance or risk. In my experience most applicants have a more competitive profile for business school admissions than they have for their first choice post MBA role. In your case I actually think its the reverse. I see you as really competitive for an I – bank role (with your CA rank holder status, CFA level 3, past financial services exp, high GMAT and consistent academic record). But convincing Wharton that “now” is right time for you for an MBA, may prove to be more difficult. …

    Wharton loves high GMATs. It's the only way Wharton can beat H or S in U.S. News.
