I am applying to 3 Schools.
1. Kellogg. 2. Harvard. 3. Columbia.
1. Undergraduate Education: History and Biological Anthropology at Cambridge University.
Result: 2.1 (Slightly lower than average in Yr 2; higher than average in Yr 3).
2. GMAT Score: 700 (40 Verbal; 44 Quant). AWA: 6.0.
3. Work Experience: 1 Year at Deloitte; 3 Years at Procter & Gamble.
4. Career Goal: To lead my family's company (specialising in value chain management and finance investment) and leading its two charities - through a philosophy called Caring Capitalism.
Do you think I am aiming too high?
At first, I did not think so - But I am worried that a 2.1 will not be viewed well by admissions directors.
If so, are there any specific schools you can think of I may be more likely to get in to?
Thanks a lot for your help.
You might be aiming a little high. What is the percentile bread-down of your GMAT
? The quant seems low to me. What have you been doing at Deloitte and more importantly at P&G?
Are you located in England?
I was asking for the percentile breakdown of the GMAT. You gave me the raw scores, but from those it seems that your score is a little below average for those schools. Your work experience is impressive. Your 2:1 is OK, but nothing special at these programs. Cambridge is obviously excellent.
You have chosen your schools well given your goals, I also suggest you apply to other schools. Consider Darden
, and Duke
