NYU Stern Part-Time Langone candidate [#permalink] New post 17 Apr 2013, 14:57
Work exp 3.5 yrs in corporate luxury retail (merchandiser for very high profile company) with promotions.

Target school: NYU Stern Part-time program, specialization in Luxury Marketing, start Fall 2013.

My stats:

Female/European citizen, but US resident/27 yrs

GMAT 680 (37Q, 45V)

GPA, from state schools:
M.S Merchandising 3.88
B.S. Economics 3.21
A.A. Economics 2.97 (cumulative undergrad GPA is 2.99 with 2 D's). Took a Finance course recently (got an A) to boost this a little.

Great EC's in college, multiple clubs, exchange programs, etc.
Few EC's after college: attended Retail Conferences held by business schools.

Post-MBA: continue up the ladder in luxury retail, move from specialized area (merchandising), into brand strategy.

I have a strong resume, but will my underwhelming GMAT and GPA hurt my chances?

They could hurt your chances, but I don't think they will doom your chances. Your GMATis competitive for Langone. Your MS GPA is excellent. If there were extenuating circumstances that contributed to the low undergrad GPA, tell the schools. Give them context.

I'm actually optimistic.

Best,
Linda
