Candidate:

Mr. Stuck Consultant

About Me:

I am a high-powered management consultant, but at a small leading firm in a very niche but rigorous field. My role includes interfacing with C-Suites and Boards of corporate and PE clients (210K+ income, several promotions). My GMAT score is an estimate given I have taken just one “cold” practice exam sans prep and scored 740 in the 99.9th percentile SAT (1580/1600).

Details:

Undergrad School: Pomona College

Undergrad Major: Economics

GPA: 3.6

GMAT: 760

Age: 27,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: Regional undergrad admissions interviewer for alma mater.

Work History:

Title: Consultant/ Project Manager

Industry: Consulting

Company: Boutique Firm

Length of Employment: 5 yrs, 4 mos

Big Life Wins:

– Authored articles published in global publications targeting C-Suite market; presented at similar conferences.
– Project manager (#2 on consulting team) for a handful of multinational industry-leading client accounts (representative fake examples: IBM, Wal-Mart).
– Overcame adversity before age 18 that will feed into my story (but also a white male).

Post MBA Goal:

My short-term goal may be stewardship for a leading asset manager (e.g. Vanguard); I want to be on the forefront of corporate governance advisory and trends. Accordingly, I am looking at Yale, HBS, Darden as well. Otherwise, goal is high-reaching HR career (e.g., Chief People) but nervous that top programs don’t cater to HR even though MBA helps

Schools:

Target School: Berkeley Haas

Status: Open
