I appreciate the forthright nature of your question. I also appreciate its concise nature. I think you know the name of the game. It is all about the GMAT in this case. The only school you will be competitive at is going to be USC Marshall. I can say that with a high degree of confidence, and without knowing the specifics of your goals in this case.
One more thing, I do not recommend going to USC if you want to remain within banking. Even if you wanted to get into entrepreneurial finance in the Los Angeles area, USC would not be a good choice. I am not sure where you are geographically located, but I would definitely consider going to a reputable part-time program (where the admissions standards are almost universally lower than for full-time programs.)
I'm hoping I could get thoughts on my application profile and my chances at the schools listed below.
-GMAT: 670 (44Q, 38V)
-GPA: 4.0 at top 20 university (major in finance) - summa cum laude
-Job: Investment Mgt analyst at a premier bulge bracket U.S. investment bank
-Teaching Assistant in college for MBA level finance courses.
-Some degree of community service/philanthropy involvement
-Would go to business school to switch career path outside of investment management
I know my GMAT is slightly low, but what are my chances at the following schools?
