I don’t know offhand all the latest stats for the array of MiF programs. However, I can give you some guidance in how to view your chances at various levels of programs.
While GMAT isn’t everything, you can use it to frame which programs are reasonable reaches and which are on-pars. First, research the average GMATs for your programs of interest. As a ROUGH
guide, those with average GMATs of 670 -690 would be reasonable reaches, those with average GMATs in the 630-670 range would be on-pars, and those with lower GMATs would be safeties. Why this range? Your 690 will get a little less weight than its actual number because of your relatively low GPA plus your being part of an over-represented group
(this is less of an issue though than for MBA programs, but still a factor on the margins). I note again this is only a rough framework, and other factors may come into play.
My guide to evaluating your candidacy objectively and selecting programs accordingly
might be of help – though it’s targeted to MBA applicants, the same principles apply.
