Hello

I am a 26 yr old Chinese male who is looking to get into the NYU Part-time program. I was born in US and then lived to HK for 8 years and then moved back to the US for High school and undergrad.

Ivy undergrad (Finance and Hospitality mgmt) (GPA 3.8)
GMAT: 610 ( 48Q, 27V) Yeah low verbal. This is the second time I took it. First time I got a 570.
5 Years of work experience ( FX Sales and Trading)
-2 year sales and trading analyst program at a top tier bank
-Promoted to Associate and trained with the MBA hires
-Took on an Associate Director positon at another international bank.

I am pretty involved in the community(local HS afterschool programs, mentoring programs, etc). I am involved in a lot of non-profit organizations in metro NY.

my ultimate goal is to take over my father's hotel furniture business and expand it globally. I have put in place a plan since I was a senior in HS. I first applied to a industry specific undergrad program, then took on an analyst positon at a fortune 100 company to gain foreign exchange and interest rate knowledge, then decided to go to a more globalized firm to learn more about international business and hoping to transfer to another country for a year or two. Lastly, leverage my experience and help build my father's business.

This is my story. Any feedback will be great.....

Mandytsai,

I like your profile. Distinctive and strong -- except for that Verbal score. Your 610 is on the lower edge of Stern's middle 80% GMAT score so all hope is not lost. Given your age you will still be young enough to try again next year and hopefully in the coming year you can do what you need to do to raise that verbal score. The bright side: you have only negative and you know precisely what it is.

Good luck,

Mandy,

Sorry for the delayed response. Yes, you could apply for Fall 2008, but understand that the odds of admission are definitely lower in the late rounds. That said, if you do get dinged the summer months should be enough time for you to study for and raise the GMAT score in time for a fall submission.

Good luck,
