Hi raptr:

The bottom line - you should be able to be competitive at a top 10 business school based on the cursory information you provided.

Your GMAT score is actually better than it may appear. I know this may seem counterintuitive, given that your GMAT score is a 710. One might think that this puts you on par with everyone else at a top 10 business school program. I would argue that it is actually incrementally "better" than the average. The simple fact is that business schools will not get a lot of applicants from Eastern Europe. So just as business schools tend to have an overabundance of Indian applicant's, they also have a slight deficiency when it comes to the number of Eastern European applicants. If you take a look at the number of test takers from each region of the world, as broken down by GMAC, you will see the disparity in numbers. I do not want to go too far down this rabbit hole, but rest assured that your GMAT score will bode well.

I also wanted to specifically address your question about Harvard and Wharton being a possibility. The answer is a definite maybe. What would really into this question is this we had the opportunity to look at each specific question, from Wharton and Harvard, and go over your specific positioning and examples for each question. We would then have to examine how your themes or personal branding remain consistent across all the examples, as well as essays. If you could leave an airtight story with the admissions committee, then you would have a chance at Harvard or Wharton. Again, as this may be a self-serving statement, but this is exactly why you hire a good admissions consultant.

I can help you form the basis of the story via a free consultation. If you would like to set up was consultation, please e-mail me directly at MBA@amerasiaconsulting.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
