Profile Eval + Quant Q [#permalink] New post 10 Feb 2013, 22:05
Hi all,

First post on GC, so be gentle. :)
Haas has a quant requirement, "quantitative proficiency" as they call it. What counts as quantitative proficiency? My GMAT is 710 with 47Q/40V. I'm an English major, but took Marketing, Financial Accounting, and Corporate Finance (did well in Accounting, not too much in Finance) at Berkeley (3.55 GPA). I've also taken Calculus, Statistics, and Econ at community college. Is this sufficient, or do I need to quickly take an extension course?

Some other info about me:
I'm 27 and currently a consultant for a mid-level firm. I'm also a fundraising volunteer at a local non-profit. I'm targeting Haas, Anderson, Marshall and other West US schools since that's where I'm from.

Any guidance is appreciated.

Thanks!

Javert,
Your GMAT is a good score and your quant coursework is solid. If you are aiming high and/or you want to optimize your profile in every way possible then I might quibble and recommend raising your GMAT quant score above the 80th percentile (if you think you can). Have you taken the GMAT only once? Did you work with a test prep service? If the answer is Yes and No, then it's quite possible you could raise the score. Your profile as a whole looks strong; feel free to send me your resume for more feedback: paulbodine@yahoo.com.
