Profile eval. for Part-time Stern? [#permalink] New post 03 May 2010, 17:00
Stats at the time of application:
24/Female/Russian citizen (US resident for 10 years)
Undergrad GPA: 3.0 average (Associate 2.9 and Bachelors 3.2), Economics, Business minor from large southern state uni.
Grad GPA: 3.88 M.S. in Merchandising from same state uni.

Extra: few college clubs, Art Director in college magazine for 2 years.
Teaching Assistant in grad school (in area I currently work in and will pursue MBA in).
Post college: volunteer for New York Cares (1.5 years)
Languages: 4 incl. English

Work exp: 21 months (at the time of matriculation) in merchandise planning for large department store. Analyst level, but most likely will be promoted at least one level by application time. Also, 2 strong internships in college - one for another department store and one for a well known Italian luxury company.

GMAT: have not taken yet, but will not apply with less than 670.

Interested specialization: Luxury Marketing and Product Management

I think my unique experience and specialization will set me apart, but are my stats too weak? I am planning for 2011, so I still have a little time to improve them. Any suggestion are appreciated. Do you think my aim for minimum 670 GMAT is too low?

Any chance for me in Kellogg, Chicago, or other top part-time programs? Also, do I stand any chance in Stern full-time?

Thank you.

I think the top full-time programs, including Stern, would be stretches for you. If you want to try one or two, OK, but don't count on them and definitely apply to programs where you would be more competitive, which would include Chicago and Kellogg's PT programs.

If you would consider a European program, you might want to look at HEC. It is very well-regarded in marketing (particularly in Europe) and I believe has a lot of resources in luxury goods marketing.

Best,
Linda

tallymia, PM me as your profile is very similar to mine (with a few differences that I think probably balance out) and I was accepted at Stern full time and received interviews at a handful of top 15s. Not going to lie, I did feel stretched but I had doubts after each of the interviews -- with the exception of the one at Stern, which I approached differently.
