My profile is not as impressive as this and I got an interview with Booth, so I think M7 is possible!

You sound like you’ll fit in well at Chico State

Chicago is a major financial hub (not NYC but probably #2), Booth is a quant known school with finance rep

Based on this year’s competition you’ll be lucky for T15. Normally this would be a lower M7 profile

no sorry this year is so competitive that the average applicant is 6’3. better luck next year shorty

you could get into wharton with the right story

Have trouble figuring out the right story.. is it just do research and decide on one? Or hire a consultant to help

This is tough - think you could apply to Tuck, Yale, and 1-2 M7 schools but would feel more comfortable about schools like Darden, UCLA, Ross. Also I don't get the GMAT range... 740 versus 720 changes the ball game imo. The biggest downside to your profile is the B4 accounting + white.... that certainly puts you in an overrepresented pool for these schools. Best of luck though

I was hoping the switch within B4 added a fit of variety to my profile.. its not top tier consulting or IB but it is different especially with the focus of tax. I was hoping the revenues garnered from the side business would push me into M7, but Its hard to gauge whether any schools would be that impressed..

I have a pretty similar profile. Received an interview at Booth. TBD on Wharton and Columbia.

You hear back?

At the end of the week I also end up with a bunch (50+) of open Outlook windows related to meeting invites. Basically, I look at my calendar, double click the invite then join the Zoom meeting. It takes me directly into the meeting and leaves the invite window open. Wash, rinse, repeat and by Friday there is literally one for every meeting I attended. Unfortunately, you can’t close them all together because it will ask you “Want to save your changes?” for every single one. Thoughts?
