Your work experience is indeed your strong point, and your undergrad record is fine. The CPA and CFA also are obvious pluses. However, I still think the GMAT is a barrier for Anderson. It’s too low, even with a great application, to make Anderson a reasonable reach, in my view
. If you have your heart set on Anderson, I suggest waiting till next round and trying to raise the GMAT.
Part of the reason I draw this conclusion is that, while your experience is indeed strong, it’s a type of experience that they’re likely to see from some other strong applicants.
If you think it will not be feasible to raise your GMAT, you could also research and apply to some less competitive b-schools in the area, and still put in an application to Anderson.
