African American Male Profile Evaluation Request - 730 GMAT [#permalink] New post 26 Mar 2012, 05:50
A few years back, I posted my stats without a GMAT score just to gauge my chances at a top 10 program. Well I now have a GMAT score of 730(46Q, 44V) and a little under two years of experience, and would like to better understand the range of schools that I should consider.

Graduated with 3.17 gpa in Chemical Engineering from smaller private university(Few extracurriculars). Currently have two years of experience as business analyst for a top multinational oil company(think Chevron, Shell, ExxonMobil), and have had leadership positions within a few organizations within my company. I plan on applying to schools in 2014, and hope to matriculate in Fall 2015.

I do understand that my GPA is on the low side, and hope that my GMAT score/work experience can help offset that. I plan on applying to HBS, Kellogg, Tuck, Haas, and Ross. In your opinion, does my GMAT put these programs out of reach? Also are there any other programs that you recommend that I consider? Post GMAT, I am interested in management consulting, as well as strategy positions in alternative energy.

I appreciate any advice that you can offer.

Your GMAT is well within Reach, but please understand there are other aspects of the admission as well that are evaluated by adcom.

When you write essay, you must demonstrate an overall personality to the adcom. GPA is a bit of concern especially when you are interested in consulting, but your GMAT can help you here.

so with 730 , you are done with your first step, but you have a long journey ahead.

i would personally suggest you to identify schools, interact with students to understand how the school can be of help to you for alternative energy

good luck

I think you are on the right track for sure. With 2 more years of experience you will be around 4 years of work exp, keeping your ECs up and you will have a great shot at top schools despite.

Since you are planning so far ahead maybe you would consider an alternative transcript, take 2-5 classes at a local CC at nights and weekends in Accounting/Economics and do well to show your GPA is not indicative of your abilities.

Good luck.
