About Me:

Senior at Northwestern. Goal is to pivot from rigorous economic research background to business. First-generation American.

I love to travel as well (41 countries).

Length of Employment:

Title: Economic Research Assistant

Length of Employment: 1 yr, 6 mos

Big Life Wins:

In college I focused heavily on academics, and would consider my academic record a success. Elected to phi beta kappa as a junior and won two college-wide writing awards in disciplines outside of my majors and minors. Because I’m still in school don’t have a huge number of work wins since I’ve mostly worked part time or as an intern.

Post MBA Goal:

Still not positive about this but likely pivot from economic research on financial institutions into a financial institution. Working on macroeconomics at the Federal Reserve post grad. ***I’m applying to all of these programs for deferred admissions this year***

  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 20%

    I’m impressed at how thoughtful you’ve been about applying to all the top deferred MBA admission programs out there. It tells me you really know what you want and are very directed about it. The fact that you have already landed a great and highly selective position at a Fed bank is a big factor here along with your Northwestern degree, GPA and stats (your 331 GRE is a point above the Stanford average). As you no doubt know, deferred admissions programs at the top schools are super competitive and the small admit rate at Stanford makes it always a coin toss for even the most accomplished candidates. Often times, the stats are even higher than they are in general and schools may be looking …

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi Mr. Economics to Business, Julie-Anne Heafey from mbaMission. You’ve built an impressive resume and I think you could bring a unique perspective to the classes. That said, I’m not totally clear on where you’re headed in business/finance. Why are you applying to deferred MBA programs now instead of later when you have a clearer idea of how you’d use it (or if you even need it)? I can see multiple paths for you that might not require an MBA at all. So – what problems do you care about and what would admission to a deferred admit program enable you to do? I think if you convince the admissions committees of a compelling reason, you have a shot. …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 25%

    Hi Mr. Economics to Business, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. Congrats on your impending graduation – nothing like doing applications as you finishing one degree! With your academic record, GRE score and cultural background – I think you will be a strong deferred candidate at Stanford. Your experience at the Fed will add to your ability to contribute to the program in a couple years. As a deferred candidate, you are compared to other deferred candidates – so focus on what you have done in school and your interships/part time jobs. Stanford will be looking for examples of leadership – either professional or extracurricular. You’ll want to focus on how your experiences (and leadership) so far have helped you know what matters to you most …

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi Mr. Economics to Business! This is Talon Rindels, Sr. Admissions Consultant at The MBA Exchange. First off, WOW! Very impressive academic background at a prestigious university and an excellent GRE score already – So, it likely won’t be a numbers game for you, but rather how your work experience and narrative comes together over the next few years before your apply. It’s hard to give you a realistic rating right now given we don’t know what your post-undergrad work or extra curricular involvement looks like yet, but since it appears that you gave your heart and soul to your studies, I’d imagine you’ll do the same in your first job out of school! And, your multi-lingual skills are super …
