Hello Linda,

1) WE: 4+yrs. - I started as a staff accountant at West Virginia University in 2009 and received a series of promotions which lead to my current position as a manger of the office. My office (myself, 5 accountants, and 1 graduate assistant) posts over $1 billion in annual revenue for the university and issues over $30 million in student refunds every semester. I am also responsible for the university's funds handling program, which focuses on compliance with state code and increasing internal controls. I also complete financial reports for the various federally funded financial aid programs at WVU.
2) GMAT: 630
3) Undergraduate School:
Bethany College(WV) graduated in spring 2009
GPA: 3.45
Major: Accounting and Minor: Management
I played football all 4 years.

Graduate School: West Virginia University
GPA: 3.54
Major: Masters in Professional Accountancy (MPA)
Graduated in Spring 2013
I worked full time while completing this degree.

4) Extra-curricular: President of the McCann Family Investment Fund at Bethany College (student run investment fund), Team Lead for a business plan competition where my team was a semi-finalist, treasurer of the Big Brother Big Sisters club at Bethany College, Treasurer of the Mon Valley Homeless Initiative (MVHI) at WVU.
5) I am currently studying for the CPA and plan to complete the final test by July 2014
6) Georgetown McDonough is my top choice
7) I would like to apply R2 2013-14
8) Career Goals: Consulting, possibly in Higher Ed. I would ultimately like to retire to a part time position at Bethany College where I would teach courses and help the college improve financially.

Do you feel that Georgetown is a realistic option given my profile?

Thank you for your time.

I was planning to apply with my current score in R2. If I'm not admitted I'll retake the GMAT and apply in R3. Do you feel this is an appropriate strategy or should I start studying for the GMAT now? The only reason I want to try with my current score is I would like to complete the CPA exams before I would start school in August.

Thanks,
Chris

Double check, but I don't think you can apply twice in one application cycle. If you are rejected R2, you would need to wait until next year and reapplythen. That's not the end of the world, but it would mean you would need to wait to start your MBA studies.

Regards,
Linda
