Profile Eval: Low GMAT, High GPA & Good Work Experience [#permalink] New post 02 Jul 2010, 17:20
Hi there,

Profile evaluation please.

GMAT 640 92%V 43%Q
GPA: Overall 3.5, Major 3.8
Major: Marketing & Intl Business from a private jesuit school. As/Bs in bus math courses.
Age: 28
Sex: F
Work experience: Product Marketing Manager at a leading fortune 100 tech company. Good work experience showing career progression.
Extracurriculars: Very minimal due to insane working hours
Reason for MBA: I'm interested in how consumer behavior affects product strategy & design. Also, I've spent the last 5 years in a B2B role and would really like to move to the B2C side of things.

My first choice is Kellogg, but I am concerned my low GMAT score will ding my application. I have anxiety and got choked on the math portion of the GMAT. This is my second attempt at the test. I scored 570 on the first attempt and had the same anxiety issue. At this point I would just rather focus on the application.

Can somebody please evaluate the competitiveness of my application? Also, would love to hear suggestions of other (realistic) US & Intl programs with consumer behavior & product strategy focuses. Maybe ones that skew towards an older student base. =)

Thank you so much!

GMAT will be an issue for schools in the top 16.

For what you're looking for, look into:

Stretch - Kellogg
Sweet spot - Indiana, USC, Emory

I'd only go abroad if you're sure you're going to work outside the US right after b-school. If you want the option of coming back to the US, you should stick to a US school.
