GMAT 700

target schools: Columbia, Simon (Univ of rochester), Chicago (it is a super huge stretch - but I really liked the program - based on the student body, faculty - academic bend and flexibility of the program)

my problem is that I have weak extra curicular activities. next to nothing -no leadership roles.

My job involves consulting/advising others but no one reports to me directly.

I am prepared to wait for a year but will my active participation in extra curicular activities begining now raise all kinds of red flags?

Job change is not a posibility right now.- hard constraints


My goal is to be in Industry Research analysis. Can you suggest any other schools with a strong finance programs ?

Also what else can I do to make myself an attractive candidate for a strong finance program (chicago ideally)?

thank you

There's a difference between providing leadership and providing management. Even though you don't have any direct reports, that doesn't mean that you haven't been able to be a leader. Your challenge is to show how you've been able to serve as a leader even outside of having direct reports.

I actually think you would have a better shot at Chicago than Columbia, so don't write it off.

Also, take a look at Cornell (Johnson) and NYU Stern. Both great schools that would set you up well for your future career goals.
