    There’s good news and no-so-good news in your profile. Let’s start off with what’s good about it. Your 730 GMAT score is right on target, given the latest class average at Booth of 731.

So if you were my client, I’d first start with your resume and make sure that it’s not too technical and instead focuses on business impact and leadership of people and P&Ls. I’d also try to understand what types of things you do at work beyond your day-to-day. Are you part of any resource groups? Do you lead any internal …
