Please evaluate me for HBS 2+2! [#permalink] New post 31 Jul 2014, 02:43
Hi there,

I just got a 710 on my GMAT (49Q, 38V), IR 8 and AWA pending and would like to apply for the Harvard 2+2 program.

Some background - I'm going into my final year at Cambridge University. Just completed the three-year Economics degree and got a 2.1, now I'm studying 'Management' for a year (not a masters - just an additional year of my undergrad). I've got very good extracurriculars (university sports captain). I've done one 8-week internship in management consulting with PwC.

I'm a bit concerned about a slightly low GMAT (compared to average for HBS) and only one case of work experience. I'm not sure I can get more work experience before I apply - should I retake the GMAT to get a higher score to try and cancel out the slight lack of work experience?

Any other advice would be much appreciated! Thanks a lot!

qwertyolo,
Your GMAT is good. If you have some evidence that you can raise it, and the time to retake then another 20 points could help. Whether 2+2 is really realistic for you would require a closer look at your profile. Feel free to send me your resume/CV: paulsbodine@gmail.com
