Pre-MBA Career: Private Credit
Post-MBA Target Industry: Investment Banking, Venture Capital, Private Equity, Asset Management, inc. HF, Commercial Banking
GMAT: 720
GPA: 3.73
Years of Work Experience: 5
Notes:

Demographics/Stats : 27 year old male, US citizen, will have 5 years work experience by R1 application this year, 3.73 GPA from well known public university in the Midwest in Economics with a concentration in business, and 720 GMAT (Q47/V42/IR6/AW6) (took 3 times this was my highest score)

Work Experience: Worked as a FSO consultant at Big 4 Firm for 1.5 years, promoted once. Left Big 4 to work at a Tier 2 Private Credit Fund, promoted from Analyst to Associate to AVP (currently an AVP). My role at the credit fund is centered around overseeing the closing of debt securitizations (average size of 300M - 500M) usually run with those pretty autonomously, (have led multiple investor calls/meetings and have created decks to present to investors) Also solely manage multiple $200M+ debt portfolios. (Have 1-2 people that I directly manage and 10+ I manage at affiliated downstreams). I also create a presentation that I present internally to 60+ people every month. Closed our largest public offering ever this past month at $661MM.

ECs: didn’t really participate in ECs in college because I was helping take care of a sick family member throughout my college career (had to go home every Friday and stayed till Sunday each week). Post college have been volunteering at organizations like Feed my Starving Children, Habitat for Humanity, etc. total hours around 100-120. Working on getting some more stuff on my resume that would put me in a leadership role outside of work. Am a regular member at a Muay Thai gym if that matters lol. I am now currently on the board of a non-profit (very surprised and lucky that this materialized so quickly). The non profit is aimed at fundraising for different initiatives for communities in need, currently now mostly health based causes but we are looking to expand. Currently, I am responsible for evaluating prospective causes, maximizing donor growth, and evaluating potential technology additions to the platform (for prospecting, CRM tools, etc.). Have identified a partnership with a teacher's college to sponsor programs for a school for children with special needs.

Will get good letters of rec from my direct bosses (both managing directors at my current company)

Post MBA goals: want to work as an asset originator at a private credit fund

Main question I have is, am I qualified enough for M7 schools? Or is that not a realistic?

Notes:

I started as a software engineer at a Fortune 200 company and after a few years, I joined the startup space! At the last startup I worked for I moved into a formal tech lead and engineering management position and loved it, but knew I had so much more to learn to grow into a better leader.

I took my GRE shortly after undergrad, and am planning to take it again this summer.

Notes:

I am from Canada and have a Bachelor's with Dean's Honours (85%+ cumulative GPA) and a Master of Accounting. I was on the CPA Canada honour roll for the CPA exam, and will earn my designation once I have accumulated the required hours.

I am working in audit at a Big Four firm in Bermuda, mainly with P&C reinsurance clients.

I have 16 months of full-time co-op work experience through undergrad at Big Four audit and financial reporting at a Canadian asset manager with over $500 billion AUM.

During university I took a variety of finance courses (corporate finance, M&A, PE, equity investments, valuations, financial statistics), but did not perform well on the quantitative section of the GMAT (old).

Looking to pivot into management consulting or buy-side via investment banking.

Pre-MBA Career: Medical Device Industry
Post-MBA Target Industry: Consulting, Pharmaceutical
GMAT: 730
GPA: 3.89
Years of Work Experience: 2
Location: Utah
Notes:

I'm a 2022 BYU graduate with a major in Biophysics and a Business minor. I love the life sciences and I think there's a lot of opportunity to do good in that sector. I spent two years on a service mission in Latin America where I interacted with many very poor people, and I'd love to eventually work in healthcare policy or some other form of expanding medical access to low income communities. Since graduation I've worked for a medical device company, starting out in their sustainability division and then transferring to the surgical robotics division where I currently work. Post-MBA I'd like to work in the biotech sector. I'm also interested in working in healthcare consulting. What I really want to do is to combine my people skills and my analytical skills to make a difference in the world, and I think an MBA will enable me to do that.

Notes:

During my summers off from teaching I taught coding summer camps for an organization called Kode With Klossy. I had to learn HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for my first year WebDev camp and Python and SQL for my second year Data Science camp so I do have demonstrated technical skills. I havent taken the GRE yet but have been scoring in the mid to upper 160s for verbal and around 160 quant. I am very interested in getting into technology strategy and am extremely interested in accessible technology and that is why I want to pursue an MBA.
