    A Northwestern history major who plays serious Frisbee? You are the quintessential poet among many quants here. Your first choice may be Wharton but you really feel like a Kellogg or UCLA MBA. Having done your undergraduate studies in Evanston, I can see how you might want to study in a new city. Nonetheless, let’s look at how you size up at Wharton.

The fact the games is self reffed says a lot about those who choose to play the sport and I think those values will work well at Wharton and other collaborative programs. I am intrigued by your coaching position and would like to hear more about the other “initiatives” you are involved in. Schools will like this leadership and I imagine there is/was some mentoring in there that you could pull out as well. I also like your liberal arts turned finance background which shows your adaptability and breadth of knowledge .Can you give details on …
