MBA ApplyWire Spotlight: A Future In Banking

MBA applicants are figuring out their target schools for Round 1 and sharing their plans on ApplyWire, Clear Admit’s latest tool to aid in your admissions process. This week, we take a closer look at one candidate trying to find their preferred path in the banking industry with 10 schools on their radar, including: U. Chicago Booth, Dartmouth/Tuck, IESE, Cornell/JohnsonUT Austin/McCombs, UCLA Anderson, UVA/Darden, NYU/Stern, Michigan/Ross, and the London Business School.

With a direct path in mind, the candidate highlighted their consulting and asset management background, deciding between social finance at at bulge bracket financial institution or an impact investor.

The first community member to comment, while impressed with their profile, was thrown off a bit by the larger-than-average number of target schools.

A fellow community member, however, disagreed. They believed that more potential targets, including more M7 schools, should be on their radar.

OP responded, noting that the initial high number of targets would likely be broken down after round 1. But they were still open to more potential selections.

Another community member inquired about the number of recommendations OP was getting, considering the number of potential applications.

Luckily, for OP’s sake, there was some apparent overlap and their recommenders handled it.

Best of luck with your applications!
