I need your help! Please help evaluate my profile. I just took my GMAT today and received a 590 score, I'm frankly a little disappointed. I was hoping to get high enough score to apply to UCLA FEMBA, USC PM or any top 20 school, but unfortunately my score only allows for USC PM.
Thank you in advance for taking a look at my profile, if you have suggestions of other top tier schools that you think I would have a shot with or you have heard of admission success stories with low GPA please share. Any words of encouragement is greatly appreciated at this point.

I am sorry the GMAT didn't go as you planned, I know that can be tough. Unfortunately, the truth is a late round application, low GMAT and a low GPA from CSU is a tough pill to swallow for a top tier school. Miracles happen but usually that takes a pretty stellar story and I do not see that in your above post yet. You can always prepare the applications, USC is probably your best bet, but it will be an uphill battle. My advice would be to work on those internet start-ups this year, MAYBE put in some applications knowing it may only be for practice and tackle it again next year. I think your GMAT and your experience will both be improved by taking another year.
