Do I have any chance? [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2009, 11:12
Hi,

I'm in the midst of applying, so maybe it's not worth asking at this point, but for my sanity i'm asking anyway.

28, Male, USA
3.5 years in Corporate Finance at a media company. Unique experience there b/c I work with Programming and Marketing heads and worked through a merger. Prior to that I worked for 1 year in Economic Consulting.
GMAT - 750 (49 quant/44 verbal), 5.5
GPA - 2.8 overall a top public college (my downfall). Started off really poorly and failed out for a semester, but then got a 3.7 my first semester back. Unfortunately, got a 2.9 my last semester in college (I was ready to start working). I took a class in Principles of Corporate Finance recently and got an A-.
Extra Curriculars -- nothing extraordinary, but enough to be "average" in this regard
Recommendations are very strong

Want a general management program as my long term career goal is to go into management for a media/technology company.

I'm applying to:
Tuck
Darden
Fuqua
Cornell
Texas
Georgetown

Do I have any shot?

Thanks!!
Matt

Yes. I think you have a shot at all but Tuck. Obviously, that academic record is the big question mark.

Best,
Linda
