Another Filipino has brought pride to the country after she graduated Summa Cum Laude from the prestigious Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in the United States.

21-year-old student Lara Andrea Montales, who entered Wharton School in 2014, graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Economics, Major in Finance and Business Analytics.

The Summa Cum Laude honor award is given by the Wharton School to a student whose grade point average (GPA) is between 3.80 and 4.00.

According to her LinkedIn account, Montales was a consistent Dean’s Lister in Wharton, and achieved a cumulative GPA ranging between 3.81 to 3.89.

She has also received a 2260 score in her SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test), which means she was in the 99th percentile of all examinees. She was also deemed eligible to apply to 1366 schools in the United States with a good chance of getting admitted.

Montales graduated valedictorian from the Colegio San Agustin-Makati when she was in elementary. She then finished high school with honors at the Philippine Science High School-Main.

She worked as an intern at Morgan Stanley in Singapore last year.

Montales will be spending a short vacation in the Philippines before going back to the United States to start working at a consulting firm in Chicago this coming August.

Wharton School prestigiously ranked No. 1 in Forbes’ 2017 Best Business Schools in the US.

Some notable alumni of Wharton School include President Donald Trump and his children, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump; Robert Lloyd Crandall, former president and chairman of American Airlines; Alex Gorsky, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Johnson & Johnson; Leonard Alan Lauder, billionaire and chairman emeritus of The Estée Lauder Companies Inc; and Edmund T. Pratt Jr., former Chairman and CEO of Pfizer Inc, among many others.
