About Me:

I’m an Indian CA, a financial controller at a global brokerage firm. Previously I’ve been an auditor with a global consulting firm.

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 35%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. You have some great experience both in financial services and your extracurriculars. Your goals are admirable and ad-coms will like seeing that you’ve already been involved in education issues in India, having leadership roles. Your stats are stellar, which will be very attractive to Booth. You’ll need to show how you plan to pivot to impact investing from where you are now, so perhaps talk about an internship that can gain you experience and credibility in the space. If you can write solid essays with a compelling narrative, ad-coms will want to root for you to succeed. Good luck!
