3.7/650/1.5 yr WE [#permalink] New post 03 Apr 2013, 08:19
Hello,
I'm a 23 year old white male.
Graduated undergrad in May 2012 with a 3.71 from a 2nd tier public University. Major in Management with minors in Finance and Marketing.

Took the GMAT the other day and scored a disappointing 650 (43Q 37V).

I will have 1.5 years work experience by this fall in sales at a leading building materials corporation.

My list looks something like this:
Virginia Tech
UT-Knox
Syracuse
Alabama
Miami
Cincinnati

What do you think my chances are with these schools? I am most concerned with my underemployment and GMAT score.. I was expecting more along the lines of a 690-710 to make up for the quality of work experience.

Im no expert but with a 3.71...you might as well get a few more years of experience and retake the GMAT and potentially get in the 720-750 range and you may be able to get into a top 10-15

I agree with the other poster. why don't you wait another year, gain more work experience, retake the GMAT, and then apply? You will be far more competitive.

If at all possible I would like to go this fall. The situation is right with me being at a job that I don't mind leaving and having not settled down anywhere yet,
Is my profile not competitive for the schools I have listed? I am not shooting for top 20.

Frankly, I am not that familiar with these programs. First check if they have any kind of minimum work experience requirement. Your grades are excellent. If your GMAT is close and they don't have that requirement, give it a try. Apply. There is nothing, other than lack of experience, that would tell me you can't get into these schools.

Best,
Linda

Thank you for the input, are there any programs you could suggest that might be a good match given my credentials?
I would like to get into OD or Sustainability consulting, but I'm not set on it. I'd like a program with name recognition.
