About Me:

Hi All, I am currently a 26 year old with about 3.5 years of Post Undergraduate Experience. I spent my first 2-years working on the Corporate Banking side of Finance, then switched over to the IB side at a Boutique firm, where after about 8-months I was brought in by a very Large Bank to work on the Strategy team. I will apply in 2023 when I am 28.

Now at most schools, a 321 might be a pretty good GRE score but Yale has one of the highest GRE norms out there – a median Q of 165 and V of 166.
