Round 2 application.
Pakistani, female candidate.
Undergraduate in Architecture from a top university in Pakistan. Graduate degree in Architecture from Columbia University.
Active with extra curricular activities in both schools, including leadership positions. Also currently involved in local community organizations in New York, and some non-profit work in Pakistan.
No promotions at work. Typically, the ‘promotions’ in Architecture take years. (For example, 10 years at my firm to become an associate.) Do have project managers that can provide strong recommendation letters.
Licensed Architect (AIA) so title changed from Architectural Designer to Architect upon finishing the exams.
Have not taken the GRE yet, but hoping to score a 325-330 score. (Scored a 320 almost 6 years ago).
My undergrad CGPA: 3.2, (Average class CGPA was 3.12.) 9th position in a class of 38.
No GPA at grad school, only pass/fail.
Post MBA goals: Establish an Architectural practice. Good designer, with a strong design portfolio and learning how to establish and run a business would be invaluable.
scholarship amount was not major factor but community from fellowships was; I was completely torn between Kellogg and Ross, but with similar employment outcomes, Ross’s student led venture funds, tight knit community, and social life in Ann Arbor (rather than chicago), made more sense for me. Both are amazing and I acknowledge Kellogg’s prestige
