I need your help! Please help evaluate my profile. I just took my GMAT today and received a 590 score, I'm frankly a little disappointed. I was hoping to get high enough score to apply to UCLA FEMBA, USC PM or any top 20 school, but unfortunately my score only allows for USC PM.

Thank you in advance for taking a look at my profile, if you have suggestions of other top tier schools that you think I would have a shot with or you have heard of admission success stories with low GPA please share. Any words of encouragement is greatly appreciated at this point.

3 of those 10 years I owned a Import/export recycling company part-time.

Thanks for reaching out and sorry for any delay on this. Can I ask what you are specifically asking? Obviously, you seem to have a pretty good sense of your strengths (work experience and ambition) and weaknesses (academic profile). Let me know where I can advise you and I will endeavor to do so. My guess is that the GMAT is going to prove to be too much of a hurdle this time around, especially because your GPA is not doing you any favors. There is no harm in applying, but I would be prepared to not only take the test again, but to apply again as well.

Again, let me know if there is something you need specific help with.

Respectfully,

Paul Lanzillotti
