How are my chances to get in?

Post Thu Sep 07, 2017 3:57 am
Hi, I am an applicant from Uzbekistan. I want to apply for B-school for 2018 fall intake, so can you evaluate my profile?

Education: Tashkent IT University, GPA 3.7(90%)

Work Experience: Working part time since June 2016 at private IT company in Uzbekistan, and started and managed renovation process of their main product. Besides, acting as a project manager for two start-up mobile app.

My main interest is Finance, so this months started working as a junior trader an only Prop Trading firm in Uzbekistan.

Tests: I am preparing for GMAT, but haven't taken an official one, highest mock test result is 630, but I am sure I can increase it to >690 till December.

My choices are Wharton, Stern, Olin, Foster, Ross and Kelley, so what are my chances of getting in?

Hey there,

First of all, great to hear from you!

We don't see that many applicants from Uzbekistan, so that will start you off as a unique candidate. It wont be enough maybe to get you into top schools, but it's a good thing,

For the rest, I would love to help you out, without more info it’s gonna be hard. Where do you work? What do you do? How quickly have you advanced? Do you have any leadership? What are your great achievements? Do you have notable community service or extra curriculars? Why are you applying? What are your ST and LT goals?

All of these will play important roles in your evaluation.

I can say though that if you can get above a 690 that would be great, and your list for starters seems nice (although it can be discussed). The only other thing I have to add is that if you take your test in December there won't be enough time for you to prepare your applications for this season, so if you need more time to get the best possible score, you can take it.


Best,
Jon
