23 y/o white male.
Bachelors in Management w/minors in Finance and Marketing.
Graduated with a 3.71. Magna Cum Laude, Dean's List, etc. from a 2nd tier University.

Will have 1.5 years work exp by fall 2013. Inside sales job with a leading building materials corporation. I see myself as being underemployed, but I live in an area that has VERY little to offer. I do manage all operations of a small sales office (inventory management, purchasing, etc.)

GMAT was a very disappointing 650 (Q43 V37) AWA 5.5 IR 7

My list looks something like this :
Virginia Tech
UT-Knox
Miami (FL)
Alabama
William & Mary
Cincinnati

What do you think my chances are with these schools?
Also, any other schools I should consider? Looking to go into Corporate Finance or Consulting.
Looking for a Full-Time program with name recognition. Preferably in the southeast US

Thanks

Hello:

I studied at University of Cincinnati - business school. I think 650 is good to get an admit there. Talk to the Program Directors of the Program you are interested in. They are usually good at responding back on your chances. UC has both MS and MBA in Finance. And they also have an internship program. With your stats, I believe it is in reach. Also check U Dayton.

Hi,

Your shortlisted b-schools should be within reach. However, you can strengthen your chances in b-schools by submitting good application essays and demonstrating leadership abilities, professionalism, ability to work with others and maturity during final interviews.

With the given information you may also target schools like: Texas-Mays, Urbana-Champaign, Penn.-Smeal, Michigan-Broad, Purdue-Krannert, Boston-Carroll, Babson-Olin and Smu-Cox. You may try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/bschool-selector

Feel free to post any other concerns you might have.

Cheers!!
Neha
