Candidate:

Mr. Stockbroker

About Me:

Former Division 1 scholarship athlete (Baseball), now financial advisor at regional brokerage house. I want to transition into a more analytical role within finance. Investment banking is my goal. I believe I have great interpersonal skills but lack the technical skills. Also looking for a role where I can really develop professionally.

Details:

Undergrad School: Western Michigan University

Undergrad Major: Finance

GPA: 3.1

GMAT: 700

Age: 26,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: Instructor/Trainer- Baseball, Coach- Special needs baseball league, United Way

Work History:

Title: Financial Advisor

Industry: Banking & Finance

Company: Fortune 500

Length of Employment: 3 yrs

Big Life Wins:

1) Obtaining a scholarship to play sports in college was very cool, primarily because others thought I couldn’t. Gave me great confidence in attacking future endeavors- no task too tall. 2) Landing my first high net worth account. Gave me great confidence and momentum in a business that is difficult to differentiate yourself.

Post MBA Goal:

I want to transition into investment banking. Working in the financial industry currently I am familiar with much that goes on in IB. Moving into this role will give me great technical skills that I currently do not have and am not trained on. This is my next next professional challenge, moving into what I would say is a higher level of finance.

Target School: Ross

Status: Open

Here’s why: Your 3.1 GPA is .4 points under the class average and it’s from a school that is not in the same peer group as the University of Michigan. Your GMAT score is 19 points below the class average of 719. And your job may not be all that highly selective. But you were a college recruited athlete and not only played a team sport in division one but coached a team. You need to lean on those experiences. Adcoms generally like college athletes. You also need to get to know the admissions folks at Ross and perhaps get a phone call with a professor who you …
