Age: 29, American/Caucasion Male, Married, two children
I am planning on applying to schools starting in round 2 in Jan '13 and seeking a profile evaluation.
GMAT: I recently took the GMAT and scored a 640 (Q44, V34). I am planning to take it again with a target of 680-700 but I am seeking an evaluation based off my current score.
GPA: I graduated with a BA in Economics from Brigahm Young University with a 3.27 cummulative GPA.
Work/Volunteer Experience: I currently have 2.5 years post grad work experience as a Consultant in the automotive industry for a CRM software company. (In a nutshell I travel all over the country consult with GM's and Dealer principals on how to best implement and utilize a CRM in their car dealerships.) Also, prior to completing my undergrad l spent two years living in Mexico and volunteering as a missionary for my church and I became completely fluent in spanish. While completing my undergrad I also spent two years recruiting and managing sales teams of 30-40 people and I ran two separate successful offices in different locations accross the country.
I have held many in the past, and currently hold an appointed leadership position in my church for which I volunteer a minimum of 5-10 hours each week of my time.
I actively participate in service projects in my community.
My #1 of school of choice is USC Marshall. I am also interested in UCLA Anderson, and the Marriott school at BYU. I realize my current GMAT score is on the lower end of the 80% range for all three of these schools. That being said, what are my chances at any of these schools if my GMAT does not improve?
If you do not raise your GMAT score, your chances are poor at all three programs. Not nil, but not great either. Realize that your GPA is also below average for these programs and the combination of below average GMAT and GPA is very tough to overcome.
