Hey everyone, was hoping you could give me a little bit of advice as my current application and the liklihood of schools I could be accepted. I am looking at unversities that offer specializations in social entrepreneurship and/or sustainability. Ultimately with the hope of merging my business background with my social entrepreneurship passion. Any input you could give me would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Of the programs cited, my opinion is Haas is prbly the most focused on social enterprise and sustainability. Of course, they are all great programs, but if you have a particular focus in that area, I'd say Haas was strongest. Which also makes it the most competitive if you apply for that reason.

Your stats are pretty good, but if you have time, you might want to invest toward getting your GMAT a bit higher. You're right on the edge of 700, and if you haven't taken the test more than once, I'd say it's worth a second attempt. Based on your numbers, I think you'll be competitive. that's great work experience and you got pretty good grades. Of course Stanford and Kellogg also have strong social enter programs, but don't know how you feel about those. And is there a reason for Notre Dame vs Kellogg or Booth? Seems out of place with your other choices.

Thanks for your response Youngjames.

Planning on taking my GMAT again, hoping to get into the 700-730 range, but we'll see. Obviously my score will reflect what tier of schools I will do further research and apply. With my current score I havent given Kellogg, Wharton, Stanford, or Booth too much thought as I feel I'd be less likely to be admitted. However, I admit I might be mistaken, and that's why I wanted to start this thread.

As far as Notre Dame goes, its a mixture of their program and family ties. In addition, they offer $10,500 of scholarships (annually) for Peace Corp alumni. I dont want to say I see ND as a backup school, because I am really intrigued by their program, but I would be willing to say they're not in my top 3 schools.
