Hello there,

Your background is pretty impressive. You've got a strong academic history, though the GMAT score is borderline --- how was your quant score? Was it over 80th percentile? If so, that's good. As for professional experience, looks like you've been on the more interesting side of law (as far as business schools are concerned) and have taken advantage of some leadership opportunities, so that is good, too. You've got some interesting community service experience, but I don't see a lot of non-community extracurricular activities (sports, music, arts, etc.?). That last one could be a weakness/gap in your profile.

It's true that lawyers aren't popular in the MBA admissions process, but I feel like you'll standout from that applicant pool given that your career story makes a lot of sense and that you have very strong credentials and what sounds like an interesting personal story to share. I'd say go for it as far as H/S/W are concerned, but don't bank on it (difficult even for the most accomplished applicants!). I'd suggest adding some safer programs to your list such as Chicago, NYU, Cornell (these pop to mind because of your interest in finance/banking). Might also look at Columbia on the reach side of things.

Good luck!
Mili

Thanks, Mili. Mentioning H/S/W was certainly not intended as an exhaustive list of the places that I will apply. I am certainly interested in (and actively researching) other programs as well. No did I mean to suggest that I think H/S/W are any any way guaranteed. I was only speculating that they seem "possible" for me.

I also do have some sports and arts related extracurriculars that I intend to bring out in my applications but would rather not mention here in the interest of preserving some anonymity. My quant score was not over the 80th percentile. Are you saying that I need to hit that mark to really be competitive at the very best schools? I have previously been told that I need the 70th percentile. Don't get me wrong - I am determined to do my best and will aim for the 99th percentile no matter what.

Sorry for misunderstanding! This all makes a lot of sense. There's no make or break rule when it comes to the GMAT, but we recommend targeting 80th percentile or above on each section if you're targeting top programs. It certainly doesn't guarantee admission, but as far as the GMAT score goes, should put you in the "safe zone."

Good luck!
