    Hello Mr. Social Impact CPA! Thanks for posting. Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Are you from Long Island? I’m from Long Island! Exciting.
    I find your profile so interesting and have so many questions. Your title refers to Social Impact, but then you say you want to do Investment Banking?! (Although I get the Green Bonds angle. At the same time though, your “why” for Green Bonds needs to be super clear in your apps.)
    Here’s your challenge: In my experience, it can be hard to break into top b-schools from the Big 4 with only two years of work experience upon application. (Four years tends to be a better number.) Right now, the Class Profile at Wharton says average WE is 5 years, so it’s even …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 25%

    Hi Mr. Social Impact, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. You’ve got a lot going for you with a generally higher than average GMAT, CPA and what sounds like some solid leadership experience professionally outside of your role with the all-hands and while at Stony Brook. As a finance guy, you are going to need to differentiate yourself from other finance applicants wanting to pivot to impact investing. I’d want to dig a bit deeper into what has driven this interest. What drives you to impact investing? I love that you have a target job post MBA, this can really help articulate for admissions what you want to do. As a part of your story, since you are on the lower years of experience side for …

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi Mr. Social Impact CPA! This is Talon Rindels, Sr. Admissions Consultant at The MBA Exchange. You’ve clearly demonstrated great ambition through both your academic and professional life (CPA, significant involvement on campus, securing a job at KPMG, GMAT +8 pts to Wharton’s average, etc.) – kudos on all that you have achieved thus far! Your school choices continue to articulate your drive as well, with Wharton at one of the lowest acceptance rates in the country (9%)! Given your financial background/goals, it does seem like the right fit for you though. I believe your chances at Wharton are about double their acceptance rate, which is quite good! I’d put you slightly higher (25-30% for the others on your …
