I just took the GMAT and am now ready to complete the MBA application process. Hoping for your opinion on my profile.
White American Male
GPA- 3.9- University of Massachusetts- Finance major
GMAT- 600 (Q-42, V-31)
Work Experience- 4.5 years working for the US Department of the Navy(government job) which began in a competitive, fast track 2 year development program. I have progessed just about as quickly as you can in a government capacity to this point.
Outside of work- 2 years volunteering teaching English, All-American triathlete
I think my GMAT prevents me from applying to any top 10's. I hoped to include at least one as a stretch school. I'll save my $200. My top choice right now is University of Colorado.
My long term goal would be to make my primary living in Real Estate working independently. In the short run, I would like to continue working for the federal government with increasing capacity while developing a small Real Estate business.
What strong(stretch) MBA programs could I add to the below list?
What GMAT would give me a reasonable chance of admission to a top ten knowing my background and Stats?
What are my chances for the following schools?
University of Colorado
BU and Northeastern- Part Time
Thanks and Merry Christmas!!
Your odds at Syracuse, Northeastern, and Boston U.'s part-time program are good. Because of your GMAT Colorado has to be regarded as a "long shot," however, your GPA, industry (military), career pace, and community profile all work in your favor, so quite possibly Colorado will come through for you. If you have traditionally been a poor standardized test taker you will want to make this case in your optional essays. Other good schools where you have a decent to good shot (though I can't speak to the quality of their real estate resources) include:
If you're interested, I also think you have a shot at UMass and Boston College. See Accepted.com
