Profile Evaluatiion - Low GMAT, High Hopes!!! [#permalink]

Hello Accepted.com!

I just finished writing the GMAT for the 3rd time and although not as high as I expected scored a 600 (Q32 V40) (I went from a 360 to a 600). I wanted to get a profile evaluation to see if my other characteristics can compensate for a low quant score.

Here's my details:
- GMAT with breakdown: 600 (Q32 V40)
- Resume highlights:
- Big 4 Professional Services (current) --> Consultant
- Big 4 Professional Services(2 years) --> Business Architect (promoted 1 level up)
- Top Capital Markets bank (1.5 year)--> Equity Trading Systems Analyst
- Started a company in 3rd year of university (website/closed project)
- Started a company in 2010 (website/sold company)

- extracurricular involvements:
- Volunteer at Daily Bread Food Bank
- interesting personal facts:
- First generation immigrant
- rebuilt a 74 Chevrolet Corvette
- only individual in immediate family to attend university
- self taught 3 programming languages on the job

Overall, I guess what I'm trying to communicate is that I think my quant score is an anomoly in my abilities. My university scores in Statistics, Accounting, Finance, Management Accounting, and Micro/Macro economics at a B+ or higher in addition to my job requiring some quant skills.

My dream school is UC Berkeley followed by Duke, UCLA, McCombs, and Carnegie Mellon. I intend to major in entrepreneurship with the intent of moving into product management for a consumer electronics firm.

I want to do an MBA to make an industry switch since most of my internship experience and post-grad experience is in financial services.

Any help would be great!

Oxford Bound,

That's a tough one. I think your target programs are unlikely to overlook that GMAT score unless there are some extraordinarily impressive aspects of your application that you are not mentioning above.

Given your entrepreneurial interests, why don't you consider Babson? It is tops in entrepreneurship and you would have a reasonable chance of acceptance there.

Best,
Linda
