Please assess my chances... [#permalink] New post 06 Dec 2005, 07:37
Dear Linda,

I would be very greatful if you can assess my chances at getting into NYU, Tuck, Chicago, UNC, Darden and LBS.

I am Latin American, Major on International Business (my average grade was 7.81 out of 10, minimum passing grade is 5). I have 7 years work expercience in Tax Consulting (I moved up very quickly in my career) and plan to shift to Management consulting.

I have taken the GMAT twice - 1st attempt in August/05- 560 (Q35, V33).
2nd attempt last week - 660 (Q48-86%, V34-72%).

Do you think I am competitive? Should I consider other Schools?

Thank you very, very much.

You have a chance at all these schools. Congrats on the GMAT improvement. perhaps you could consider UNC a safety school, but otherwise you don't have one. If you really want to increase the chances that you attend an MBA program this fall, apply to schools strong in your area of interest, but with slightly lower GMAT scores and higher acceptance rates.

Good luck!

Hi I saw your post about increasing your GMAT Score. I've scored a 550 on my most recent test and obviously I'm looking to improve that. Can you share your strategy for improvement and how long you had between tests?

Hi Linda,

Just to let you know, I retook my GMAT this Decemebr and managed to increase to a 690-91% (Q47-81% V38-85%).

Do you think this improvement will also improve my chances at the schols I am applying to?

Do you have any advice on a safe school, considering my background?

Thank you very much and Happy New Year!!!

P.S. stretchad, I will post my strategy later, as I am working really really hard on my essays, ok? Happy New Year.

Congratulations again! Well done. I think this does improve your chances somewhat and may even turn UNC into a safety. If you want another "safely" consider Indiana, Georgetown, or UT. For additional programs where you would be competitive, consider Michigan or Haas.

Good luck!
