WSO has been invaluable to me as I have pursued a career in consulting and applied to b-school and I want to give back during this boring but glorious time at work where my job performance no longer matters!
Top 15 US News University, 3.95 GPA, major in Econ
2 S&O, 2 years at a F500 retailer doing Corporate Strategy
Good but not extraordinary extracurriculars (lets call them a B+)
Excellent recommendations from two current supervisors
Not URM, not international
I applied to 6 schools in Round 1. Dinged at HBS/Wharton and admitted to Kellogg, Booth, Columbia and Berkeley. Headed to Kellogg this fall, with plans to pursue Banking or, with a focus on retail.
Happy to answer questions about essays, interviews, recommendations, admissions consultants (I used one sparingly), school decision or really anything else folks are interested in.
