Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I was hoping you could evaluate my profile. Here's the summary:
- 24 years old, from Canada
- Joined a venture backed American technology start up right out of undergrad. Size of company when joined, 60. From time of joining, company grew from $6 million to $300 million in 2 years. It was ultimately acquired by an established tech giant. Was directly involved in this hyper-growth (took the initiative as junior and developed & implemented ideas/strategies that generated millions in growth, of course aiding the hyper-growth). Loved being an entrepreneur & building a business
- When the company got bought out, I wanted to continue learning how to build & grow businesses. I managed to get myself into one of the global accounting firm's Management Consulting divisions. Will have 1.5 years mgt consulting experience by the time I apply to b-schools
- Have not written GMAT yet, but want to realistically target the high 600's to low 700's
- Undergraduate in Economics, but low GPA (below 3.0)
- Very involved in extra-curriculars in undergrad to the point where I was awarded a university-wide leadership award (given only to a select few) in my final year
Do I have a chance at the top-tier schools? 2nd tier? What will I need to score on my GMAT to get into a top-tier school? I'd like to either get into a top UK school or top US school, but I just don't know if my profile is good enough. Thanks so much!
Entrepreneur stuff is great for apps, so that will serve you well. Doing well on the GMAT is key since your GPA is less than illustrious. ~700 should allow you to reasonably apply to top 15 schools, with a top 15-25 good for a safety. _________________
