Hi all,

I just sat my GMAT and got a 730, with Q48 (80th percentile) and V42 (96th percentile).

My query is whether or not the split, with a lowish Q percentile, will be prohibitive to my application. Would greatly appreciate some perspective!

I'm targeting top tier MBAs: Harvard first preference. Basic CV below:
- Solid work experience in banking and government, then top tier management consultancy for 3 years who will sponsor the MBA
- Continued community service for last few years

Cheers,

MrPapagorgio

Hey - you sound a lot like me. I'm a Q48 V44 with a management consultant background. Your split is fine. Many top schools are looking for 80th percentile on both sides, which you have achieved. The strong GMAT box is checked.

Next key is differentiating yourself through applications because there are many of us consultants competing for spots at the top schools.

Congratulations on your excellent GMAT and best of luck in your research/application phase.

Quite a few are in your boat – the “explorers”. It’s alright to be an explorer in terms of choosing the path after getting into the MBA program. However, you will be spending \$100K+ in the course of your MBA at a top B-school. You need to decide whether exploring is worth that money – just in case you decide to go back to do doing what you are currently.

You like finance and entrepreneurship and you don’t like east coast. School choice becomes pretty simple with this – Stanford, Haas and McCombs. In my opinion, Chicago region is not as great as Austin or west coast for entrepreneurs. My advice would be to talk to current students at your target schools to discover whether it’s a match. Also, consider visiting the schools – this will give you a feel for an MBA.

You have a good GMAT and good undergrad GPA. You need to focus on your essays if you intend to apply.
Let me know if you have specific questions.
