Candidate:

Mr. Colombian Consultant

About Me:

Prospective MBA candidate, with the intention of applying for the 2021 entering class. Currently working as a senior consultant for an international management firm (over 3,000 employees worldwide), with one year of management experience leading teams in different projects, and international exposure, having worked in Argentina for 9 months.

Details:

Undergrad School: University of Cincinnati

Undergrad Major: Business Economis and International Business (double major)

GPA: 3.96

GMAT: 720

Age: 26,  Ethnicity: Hispanic or Latino

Extracurriculars: Amateur soccer player.

Work History:

Title: Junior Consultant

Industry: Consulting

Company: Global

Length of Employment: 2 yrs, 1 mos

Title: Senior Consultant

Industry: Consulting

Company: Global

Length of Employment: 1 yr, 2 mos

Big Life Wins:

Worked for 9 months in a project in the energy industry in Argentina, where I gained a lot of exposure with the company’s executives. After that, came back to Colombia and completely shifted my focus, since I’ve been working exclusively in projects for top-10 local and regional insurance companies, where I’ve been leading teams of 4-6.

Post MBA Goal:

I want to use an MBA to improve my team-management skills and strategic vision, in order to transition into a more strategy-focused consulting firm. An MBA would be a great opportunity to learn from classmates and professors how companies have dealt with problems in the past, which is something that would be very helpful for consulting projects. In the long-term, I hope to become a local partner (in Colombia) for one of the top consulting firms and help local companies grow.

Schools:

Target School: Harvard

Status: Open

Considering: Berkeley Haas, NYU Stern

  • The MBA Exchange Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi there! It’s Stephanie Horn, Master Consultant with the MBA Exchange and recent Poets and Quants “Top 10 Admissions Consultants”. There are several encouraging aspects to your profile. Consulting is a primary feeder into MBA programs, and schools will be interested in a candidate from Columbia. However, there are some areas of your application that will need to be addressed. Improving your GMAT to 740 will be a big step in improving your profile. While being a consultant is a respected and well-known path for business school, it is a category with a lot of competition. You will need to demonstrate on your resume, essays and letters of recommendation that you have excelled in your position, demonstrating leadership beyond what is expected of your peers. …

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 30%

    Hola Mr. Colombian Consultant! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Thanks for posting.
    You’ve gotten a lot of good advice already so here are my top tips for you:
    Consider CBS Early Decision. You’re a bit on the younger side for HBS but CBS may snap you up given that you add some diversity to the class and have brand-name consulting experience.
    It sounds like you would like to work in the US post-MBA. It’s not clear to me what your US visa/citizenship status is given that you went to the University of Cincinnati, but make sure you understand which programs offer STEM-certification, which will make it easier for you to stay in the US post MBA. (H1B visas have been getting tougher and tougher to get.)
    Describe your work …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 30%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. I think you have some positive things about your profile that will be attractive to top MBA programs. Being from Colombia alone is relatively rare and something that will make you stand out! Your GMAT for your demographic is solid although it won’t hurt to raise it to 740. You’ve had work experience both in the US and South America, but your years of work experience is on the light side. You would likely be a stronger candidate if you waited a year and got a bit more experience under your belt. Bonus points if you could be put on a project related to an industry you’re interested in (such as sports)! As far as extracurriculars, I’d want …

    Undergrad school and company are silver, not gold. And, GMAT is between 10 and 20 points under what's competitive at HBS nowadays. Haas and CBS are a better bet.
