Applying: Berkeley / Haas, Columbia, Harvard Business School, INSEAD, London Business School, MIT Sloan, Stanford GSB, U. Chicago Booth, UPenn / Wharton, Yale SOM
Pre-MBA Career: Financial Services/ Project Management
Post-MBA Target Industry: Consulting, Technology Companies: Bain , BCG , McKinsey , Amazon , Apple , Facebook , Google , Microsoft
GMAT: 780
GPA: 3.58
Years of Work Experience: 7
Location: Ireland
Post MBA Location: United States/ Europe
Notes:

I am originally from India who initially went to UAE for a college in Computer Science and then pivoted to Mathematics as a college transfer in the United States (transferred because of low opportunities in Technology space in UAE) with an intention of getting into Finance/Financial Services. At the time of admission, I will be a European citizen so will have access to work in Europe without any sponsorship.

I have worked in 3 different continents, during my internship in India, in the US post graduation and then finally in Europe as my company was expanding and wanted me to lead the efforts in the other side of the Atlantic.

During this time, I have honed my skills as a Project Manager deploying solutions globally. Worked intensively with the CEOs and Co Founder in the Financial Services company and now hold a Management Position at a bank (VP) as a part of a management team with 12 personnel count .

Post graduation- and this is why I am hoping to get an MBA- I hope to pivot to a Strategy/ Product Management Role.

Post-MBA Target Industry: Other
GMAT: 700
GPA: 3.31
Years of Work Experience: 2.5
Notes:

I am currently in the Private Wealth space and want to make the switch to Corporate Development. My GPA was weighted down from a rough first two years of honors pre-med courses and personal issues (I plan to address these when applying). Ended up switching to Economics and finished my last two years with a 4.0. First gen Hispanic college student.

Extracurriculars/Professional Development:
-Various leadership/mentorship roles within my current role
-Volunteer with a couple local charities
-Exec board of my college's local alumni group

Looking for advice on how to become a stronger candidate.

Applying: , Cornell / Johnson, Dartmouth / Tuck, Georgetown / McDonough, Michigan / Ross, UCLA Anderson
Intake Year: 2025
Pre-MBA Career: Social Development
Post-MBA Target Industry: Other
GRE: 308
GPA: 3.7
Years of Work Experience: 6
Location: Perú
Post MBA Location: US
Notes:

I am a 29-year-old professional from Peru with a Bachelor's degree in Communication for Social Development, boasting a GPA of 3.7. I am scheduled to take the GRE exam next week and have been consistently scoring 156 in Math and 152 in Verbal. Additionally, I have achieved a score of 8 on the IELTS English proficiency exam.

With six years of experience in healthcare and ESG, I have worked with major companies in Peru, assisting them in addressing various challenges in these fields. Currently, I serve as the ESG Leader for three countries within a healthcare network. I am passionate about my work but seek to deepen my knowledge in Management while maintaining a focus on sustainability. I am applying to these schools in Round 1 this year because they all offer a concentration or certification in sustainability, which aligns with my career goals.

Post-MBA, I aspire to work with another healthcare network, such as UnitedHealth, to further my expertise. Ultimately, I aim to return to my country, or work within Latin America, to help bridge the gaps in healthcare access.

While my GRE scores may not be the highest, I have a strong GPA, excellent recommendations from both my former and current supervisors, substantial work experience, and fluent English proficiency.

Any recommendations?
