    Hi Mr Senior Analyst, Kristen from MBA Prep School here. I’m impressed by the number of promotions you have received in such a short time and your role in setting up your organization’s first plant. I also think your cross-cultural interactions will be a strength. Your GPA is of concern but I think your GMAT, quant work experience, and CPA/CFA can help ease concerns. I will admit you did raise my eyebrow when I read you had promotions across different organizations in a short period of time.

    Hi Mr. Senior Analyst! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant, weighing in on your profile. I really like the mix of exposure you’ve had in your career (e.g., manufacturing) plus the fast promotions. Your post MBA goals seem reasonable too. Your GPA is a bit low, and while the high GMAT can help a lot with that, it could be a challenge at a top school like Wharton. I would also be thinking about ways you can differentiate your profile for Wharton, as they see a lot of applicants with finance backgrounds as you can imagine! Perhaps the international angle is one differentiation, perhaps there is something outside work, etc. I’d want to know more!

At first you raised my eyebrows when you mentioned multiple promotions across different organizations, but I assume you mean across 2 employers? If you've made more than one job change within 3-4 years it might raise a red flag to the Admissions Committee and you would certainly need to address why you made the career decisions you made. Your GPA will be another point to address, but the GMAT, quant work experience, and CPA can help with that. You'll definitely need to make sure you distinguish yourself from other ...
