African American Male Profile Evaluation Request - 730 GMAT [#permalink] New post 26 Mar 2012, 05:54
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.

The 46 Quant score is a little on the low side for these programs; I would consider retaking the GMAT to see if you can boost that a bit. You may wish to take some courses to build an alternate transcript: your 3.17 isn't incredibly low, but if a few business/marketing/accounting courses can boost that and get you in the mindset for the MBA, I see no downside.
I highly recommend you consider some other programs with strong recruitment in strategy consulting: Darden, UNC, and Duke, for example. African Americans comprise only 6% of the Darden and Duke US student bodies, so I believe these programs will be particularly interested in a solid candidate like yourself.
And take advantage of the resources available to you through MLT and the Consortium to ease the application process.
