Candidate:

Ms. Big 4 M&A Manager

About Me:

Hi, I’m an international applicant, applying from London. Some cons are part of my poor undergrad grades (ok overall result). I work for a less elite but solid WE at Big 4 in the M&A group. I come from a background of growing up in 3 countries before the UK with credible managerial and leadership experience at work, and decent ECs focused on education and gender equality.

Details:

Undergrad School: London School of Economics

Undergrad Major: Economics

GPA: 2:1 (Upper second-class honours, UK)

GMAT: 750

Age: 29,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Committee Member - Women in Finance initiative at work, Corporate Social Responsibility lead for a year at work, Book club - member and help organize.

Work History:

Title: Analyst -> Asst. Manager -> Manager

Industry: Consulting

Company: Global

Length of Employment: 5 yrs, 6 mos

Big Life Wins:

– Poor undergrad grades after some undiagnosed health issues, but still graduated with a good overall grade, and have had a steady upward trajectory in profile since.

– While not MBB, I’ve had significant direct leadership experience at work. Not only with client work but with discretionary team-building efforts like mentoring, recruitment, and training.

Post MBA Goal:

I want to “zoom-out” and gain broader leadership and strategic decision-making skills through an MBA. My post-MBA goal is either consulting or to directly join a rotational leadership development program with the ultimate goal being a senior strategic role at an F500 company (all ears for the best-suggested routes to this path?!)

Schools:

Target School: Harvard

Status: Open

Considering: MIT Sloan, Yale

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. You have a lot to be impressed by in your profile! Your GMAT is great and so is your work experience in consulting with strong progression at your firm over 5+ years. I’m less worried about a lower GPA if you can explain in an optional essay that you had some health issues and that you finished overall with X GPA, so you can show the progression was good (rather than getting your worse grades at the end). I like the goals you’ve laid out and would be even more specific about that ST role. If consulting, where, and most importantly, WHY? What do you like about consulting that you want to do more of it? If the …
