Hi WSO community,
The forum has always been beneficial to me. Therefore, I decided to do this AMA to help others. I'm currently an associate at a middle market private equity firm (~$1.5B AUM) in Asia.
My background is relatively typical: top 4 undergrad in China, two years at tier 2 consulting firm, and then three years at another MM PE firm (~$2.0B AUM). I was applying for MBA last year. Unfortunately, I got rejected by HSW (hard for Asian male, damn!) and only received other M7 schools (Kellogg/Sloan/CBS). So I decided not going to business but joining my current PE firm.
Feel free to ask any questions and I will try my best to answer.
