Non traditional Applicant -- please review! [#permalink] New post 26 Jan 2010, 13:49
About me: 25 yo (26 at matriculation), 3 years in non-profit, 1 year in direct sales. Work in NYC, graduated GWU in 2006 (3.74 GPA) with History BA. Have worked in public health, media, but mostly in cultural orgs. Currently working for architects @ architecture museum.
GMAT = 750 (Q 46 V 47 AWA 6.0). Great reccs, decent essays. LGBT applicant. Volunteer work.

Have interviewed at UNC Kenan-Flagler, upcoming interviews for Kellogg and Yale. Waiting for Cornell, Michigan, and Stanford.

Plan to focus in Organizational Development, Change Mgmt. Non-profit background but not committed to staying in it -- want to career change, hopefully to Human Capital consulting team (Deloitte, Towers, etc., but still not sure).

What do you think my chances are at my schools? I am thinking of doing an eleventh hour application to Columbia (starting to panic about leaving NYC!) I want to come back here after school, so a little concerned about UNC (interview went really well and I think they are in need of more LGBT people).

Thoughts/feedback? Thanks!!

Setting aside your essays, Stanford will be a bit of a stretch, the others look absolutely plausible and even likely to me. I would suspect UNC/Yale/Cornell to be near-slam dunks, and Michigan and Kellogg as likely.
