Hi Experts,

I would like to know my chances in Ross, Kelly, UTA McCombs, Darden and Tepper based on profile provided below. Also it would be helpful if you could suggest any other schools for which i have a realistic chance.

My Profile:

GMAT: 710 (Q 49/V 39)

GPA: 8.1/10

Work Experience:
Have been working for the past 26 months as a Business Analyst in one of the world's largest pure play decision sciences and analytics firm (By the time i start my MBA, i would have completed 3 years of work) I work with a world leading retailer to institutionalize data-driven decision making in their organization. I do this by the helping them harness the power of big data and analytics & decision sciences in their operational and strategic decisions.
Some of the work done includes Forecasting and driver analysis: Forecasting at various levels to support strategic, tactical and operational strategies of client; driver analysis to understand actionable levers etc
Cannibalization, new store location analysis, Market Basket Analysis, affinity analysis, event modeling, survey analysis etc. are some of the other significant projects for the retailer.

I would like to specialize in strategic consulting in retail sector to scale new heights. It is also in line with what i have been doing till now.

Any thoughts would be really appreciated.

Thanks!

Hey there good sir,
Well... with your nice GMAT you might have a shot at those schools. It's a bit hard to tell with the info I have. Your work experience seems pretty "middle of the road".. so, good, but a lot like many other people. Plus you have the disadvantage of applying with relatively little experience.

My question would be what ELSE do you have hidden in your profile? Any leadership? volunteer work? extra curricular activities? crazy stories? I dunno.. we need to find SOMETHING that will make you stand out, so that you can have a good shot at those schools you listed.

Lemme know,
JF
