Advice and profile evaluation (without Gmat score) [#permalink] New post 20 Feb 2012, 18:59
Hello,

I'm looking for a very good part-time program. I'm probably 2 years away from applying, so I'm in the process of studying the GMAT and improving my application. Could you guys give me some advice as to what I could do to improve my application, and what GMAT score i'll need to get into a very good school in the Midwest part-time?

Ok, for starters, I have roughly 4 years of work experience for a fortune 500 company. 2 years as an analyst, and 2 years as an account rep. The work experience isn't jaw dropping, I know. And it probably won't improve much over the next 2 years.

For undergrad, I went to a pretty good state school with a gpa of 3.18 studying economics. Not great either. I just recently graduated from a decent regional school studying International Economics and Finance. During grad school, I graduated with a 3.93.

I do have a variety of volunteer work, but I did not have any leadership responsibilities during it.

So, I was wondering what you guys would recommend that I do to improve my app other than do very well on the GMAT? And also, what GMAT score would you recommend that I get in order to get into a very good part-time midwestern school?

Thank you,

Well I think you have a good sense of things yourself. You may not YET have leadership at your volunteer place, but why not try and lead some there? and in fact in every other activity you are involved in. It's simpler than you think. Say you volunteer for a church organization. Offer to throw a fund raiser. And then put your heart in it. Only good can come out of it.

Other than that, the single most impressive thing that helps is getting promoted lots. I know this isn't entirely in your control, but what you can get here would be good.

Other than that, since you have two years, involving yourself in one or two more activities, especially ones that may provide you opportunities to lead can be great too.

So, do you think that I should just wait until I get a promotion before I apply? This could be a 2-3 year process.
