Hi jpday,

Thanks for your post. For your candidacy, nothing about your story makes me think there is any reason why you cannot be admitted, but nothing stands out telling me why you should be admitted. All of the reasons why a top program would admit you are in the details of your work experience, personal experiences, personality, values and overall story.

For the GMAT, we recommend candidates take the exam again if they believe they can improve their score by 30+ points.

If you'd like, I recommend you read this case study of a Big 4 accountant who was accepted into a top business school: http://www.stacyblackman.com/2011/09/08 ... eer-goals/

We also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,
Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
