Frequent reader, first time poster here. Was hoping for some sage advice and constructive feedback regarding my future MBA chances. A bit about me...
2010 liberal arts college grad, pretty good midwestern school, though not a target I suppose. Cum Laude graduate, 3.55biz/econ double major. 3.7 major and A's or A+'s in all of the very relevant math/finance/econ courses. Student tutor in intro micro/macro courses as well as advanced financial accounting. TA in micro theory. 1 year of a varsity sport.
Hired out of school by a large NY asset manager (think Blackrock/) in a risk/compliance role. This past april was promoted to the , in a group that broadly does fundamental equity investing (growth/value). My work is not though (we have no real, junior associates). Mostly allocation/beta analysis across our different strategies. Interacts daily w PM's and traders. CFA level II candidate, hope to pass all three by matriculation. Outside of work, solid volunteer experience- on the junior board of nice charity, and very active- training for a marathon, etc.
Post MBA goals-
I will be looking to apply to schools in the fall of 2013 for 2014 matriculation, which would give me just shy of 4 years WE. DEFINITELY will be applying to Columbia ED. Please asses my chances there and elsewhere (I am figuring H/S and likely W would be a waste of time and effort, so from there on down the line).
