700...How are my chances? [#permalink] New post 17 Oct 2010, 10:49
OK, I finally took the GMAT! Ended up with a 700 (42Q/42V) and expecting a 5.5. or 6.0 AWA. SO relieved to be done with that ordeal!

I told myself that, if I scored 700+, I would apply to more competitive programs. As such, I've narrowed my selection down to the following 9 schools:

Uber Elite
Harvard
U. Penn

Elite
Northwestern
Yale
UCLA

Almost Elite
Emory
Georgetown
UT-Austin
USC

Is 9 too much? I don't want to tire my recommenders, and need to make sure I have enough time to make each application great.

Would appreciate any thoughts and help!

Sure you stand a chance. Consider your application your personal marketing package and use it to highlight not only your strengths but also how well you fit with your target program. Be very specific as you discuss how the program will prepare you for your future career goals. Additionally, communicate the unique perspective you can bring to an MBA class and why you will be an asset to the program. Finally, make sure your LORs are written by individuals who know you very well and can speak to your specific accomplishments. Best of luck!
