Hello mbagirl2015, thanks for your question.

Your academics and GMAT are strong – I definitely think all the programs you mention are in play. As you anticipated, it will come down to the quality of your work and extracurricular experience – I’d love to learn more! Both areas sound promising for you – from what you’ve written – but it really depends on whether you have demonstrated leadership, driven results, and shown initiative.

Moreover, what are your post-MBA goals? The more you can connect your future path with your past and present and demonstrate a need for an MBA, the stronger your candidacy will be!

Of course, I am happy to discuss further, if you like! Feel free to visit the mbaMission web site and sign up for a free consultation – you should be able to find my name. Let me know if you have any problems finding the link.

Best of luck,
Brian
