I can tell that you have certainly done your research with respect to school selection. You are basically picking the MBA programs with the best healthcare management programs.

To be honest, I believe that your current GMAT score is borderline. If you could break that magical 700 barrier, then you would look a lot more compelling, especially as an applicant from an overrepresented demographic. I know it sucks to hear me say this, but I suspect that you this already. Since it is so early in the application season, you do have time to try and take the GMAT again. I would encourage you to do so. a third try is not going to raise red flag. The bottom line is this -- if an admissions committee likes what you have to say on paper, and you have taken the GMAT five times, they really will not care. They just want to see that 700+ score. They will ignore the frequency of the examination. Now they do not like what you have to say in your application essays, then taking the GMAT a third, fourth or fifth time is just another nail in coffin.

One MBA program that you should consider as well is Johns Hopkins. I did a little more digging around and I specifically recommend the MBA in Medical Services Management or even the MBA/MS in Biotechnology. I think that options could help you advance towards your goal as a healthcare consultant. Keep in mind that the Johns Hopkins program is relatively new. But given the schools overall reputation and its history of academic excellence, I believe that the MBA program will follow suit.

Please let me know if you would like to schedule a complimentary consultation. I have helped several clients get into the healthcare management programs at some of the business schools you have listed. please e-mail me at MBA@amerasiaconsulting.com to schedule this consultation.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
