Candidate:

Mr. Boutique Consultant

About Me:

Entered new LDP at small tech co. and got experience in ops, marketing, and user research. Got into strategy consulting w/boutique firm, got high-impact experience w/CPG, Industrials, & Fin. Svcs clients (4/5 F500, 3/5 F100). Booth legacy (dad, MBA), and possibly Kellogg (sister, starting PhD 2020 but pending rest of admissions decisions)

Details:

Undergrad Major: Economics; Organizational Development

GPA: 3.67

GMAT: 760

Age: 25,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: Collegiate Model UN competitor (top 10 nationally-ranked undergrad team) and CFO, Social fraternity executive board (2x), Volunteer at local DA's office - helped document evidence and build cases for financial crimes (fraud) case and sexual violence case

Work History:

Title: Sr. Associate

Industry: Technology

Company: Boutique Firm In Selected Industry

Length of Employment: 1 yr, 6 mos

Title: Sr. Associate Consultant

Industry: Consulting

Company: Boutique Firm In Selected Industry

Length of Employment: 1 yr, 6 mos

Big Life Wins:

Gained one promotion at each job, each being the fastest possible. Personally, I consistently make time outside of work to learn new things, including reading ~60 books (mostly non-fiction, topics include people analytics, history, design, energy, economics), beginning to prepare for a Jeopardy! run, and studying a language on my commute.

Post MBA Goal:

Move from my boutique firm to a role with MBB or a Corp. Strat. or Brand Management role in CPG. Trajectory at current firm does not keep pace with that of MBB in terms of earnings or responsibility advancement. I’m most passionate about food & beverage, and I want to end up in a mid-senior role there after consulting if I don’t go direct from MBA

Schools:

Target School: Kellogg

Status: Open

Considering: Chicago Booth, MIT Sloan, Harvard, Wharton, Stanford GSB, Tuck

  • Liza Weale, Gatehouse Admissions | Odds Assessment: 50%

    Your strong stats will convince that Kellogg that you’ll excel in the classroom (while helping them boost their averages), while your breadth of experiences (in-house & advisory; tech & cross-industry) means you’ll be able to contribute to the learning experience of your classmates. Also, Kellogg is a great match for your goals (though I’d want to know a little more about why CPG and/or food & bev – make sure that Kellogg understands why you’re passionate about that space specifically). And PS: I love your love of learning & that you’re constantly pushing yourself to grow, be it in your career or in your passions outside of work. I think Kellogg will take note as well.

    Great profile and stats. Congrats.

    Honestly, you should stroll into Kellogg. Your super GMAT score of 760 is well above Kellogg’s latest 732 class average. Your GPA from a great university is above the 3.6 average for the latest cohort at Kellogg which accepted 26% of its applicants for last fall’s class. So you are solid on the basic numbers. The rest of your profile is very strong as well, but what really catches my eye is the fact that you have been promoted by your two employers and in a relatively quick timeframe. That is super important and impressive. If there’s anything lacking in your profile, it’s that you worked for what I presume to be a startup that is not well known and …

    Hello Mr. Boutique Consultant! Thanks for posting. Krista Nannery here from mbaMission. I believe the form asks you to indicate what Class and Round you are applying for but we don’t unfortunately get that information on the front-end here. I’ll try to build on what Liza and John have already said and add new information.
    You do mention being a legacy and I need to warn you: b-schools have told us that if they took every legacy or person with a strong connection to a legacy, there’d be no room left in the class. I say this because I want to make sure you don’t rely on this overmuch…do your own networking with Booth, visit and show your interest. (And hey, maybe it makes for …

    Hi Mr. Boutique Consultant, this is Donna Bauman, Senior MBA Admissions Counselor at Stratus Admissions commenting on your profile. You have some serious academic chops with the 3.67 from Vanderbilt and the 760 GMAT! I am also impressed with your consulting experience and your promotions. When you are speaking with your recommenders encourage them to comment on your fast promotion schedule as it carries more weight when a recommender says this. Kellogg certainly has a strong history of CPG excellence and I could see you exploring CPG or MBB consulting opportunities with Kellogg. In terms of your profile, I think it is more interesting to seek the MBA to gain marketing, finance and operations knowledge that you’d need for CPG brand management but do some …
