Have heard that applying for "reaches" in the 1st round is the best way to get into them (heard ~3?). Can you please analyze my profile and suggest which schools to look at for "reaches"?
White Male, Age 24
GPA: 3.2 (uptrend - 3.5 last 2 years), double-major in Finance and History, Top 40 National University (US News)
GMAT: Will be taking the GMAT in late August - assume a 650-700 score
Work Experience: 3 years at a bulge bracket investment bank in NYC in investment banking (as opposed to trading/back office)
Undergrad Extra-Curricular: Navy ROTC freshman year (killed my GPA), rugby 2 years, worked at school to offset daily living costs 3 years, abroad 1 semester
Post-Grad Extra-curricular: Have been working with Manhattan Boy Scout Troops (am an Eagle Scout myself) Goal after MBA: Investing (buy-side) in developing country infrastructure (roads, power plants, etc.)
Any additional feedback would also be greatly appreciated.
