Mr. Consulting To Emerging Markets Banking

About Me:

I briefly lived in a developing country when I was younger and this was pretty formative in introducing me to the possibilities in emerging markets. In undergrad, I focused on papers related to international relations/geopolitics and I’m especially interested in the intersection of capital and the global strategic balance.
I’m looking for an indication of which parts of my application I should spend more time working on and which are already strong enough. I hadn’t properly considered B- school until about a month ago so any and all feedback would be great!
