Go ahead, call me insecure for making this post but I'd like to get an idea of what are my chances at a top b-school.
Undergrad Institution Rank: ~55th
Major: Finance and Math (my finance GPA is 3.56)
Very active in a professional business fraternity (Treasurer, head of professional affairs) where I accomplished a lot for the chapter. Was a director of the finance club. Also president of a math club but I had a lot of clashes with my chapter advisor over the direction of the club.
Interned at a top tier VC fund ($1.7 billion AUM, had two $350 mm exits in 2009, portco's commercials can be seen during the SuperBowl) for 1.75 years during college where I helped with sourcing. Now I'm off to a middle-market investment bank (not as big as or PJC but not boutique) honestly because it was the first job offer I got and at the time I had no idea what I wanted to do for a career.
Don't know if I can get into any worthwhile PE firm with the low GPA (nor am I sure I want to do PE or even VC) but something I strongly consider is to save up money from banking and start a tech company after my ibanking stint.
B-school is something I think about a lot cause I did so well with the GMAT (took it to mitigate low GPA) and now feel like it would be a waste not to apply to reset my academic profile (shitty reason to go to bschool, but given my mediocre profile, it is something I think about).
So what do you think are my chances given just the numbers? Any thoughts about the worth of bschool to augment my academic profile? Will the internship at the VC fund during college have any weight on my bschool app?
