African American Male Profile Evaluation Request - 730 GMAT [#permalink] New post 26 Mar 2012, 05:53
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.

With a 730 and very good work experience there is no reason why you could not reasonably apply anywhere, even Harvard. Since you have a year or two I would suggest working your butt off to try and move fast up that ladder, and seek out as much as humanly possible to LEAD others, even in small seeming things like organizing company barbeques or money collecting efforts for charities, etc. And make sure you have at least one community service position (again ideally one with leadership) over these years.

Additionally, as an African American you know you are eligible to apply through the consortium?

Finally given your goals, I would also look at Sloan and Austin (for energy), and maybe Wharton too if you like the program.
