Profile evaluation - 680/5Y WE/Ivy [#permalink] New post 25 Oct 2011, 13:44
Hi there -

I'm evaluating my chances at NYU (would like to specialize in FI Asset Management and International Management).

1. 680 on the GMAT (640 the first time)
2. Ivy Undergrad (3.2 gpa; business focus)
3. 1.5 yrs Analyst specialty Finance/Real estate debt (investment due diligence, justification, lots of writing, loan modeling)
4. 3.5 yrs management consulting at a boutique firm (wide array of industries and project types; operational strategy)

I'm also looking at Columbia, Wharton, Northwestern, U Chicago, Cornell, and Darden.

If it's any relevance, family members have attended Stern and other NYU Schools both Grad and Undergrad (Father, Uncle, Cousin)

Hah - not Wharton. Business focus, not business school :-)

GMAT is on the low side. You know that. It won't be fatal, but it will be a handicap.

Stretch: Wharton, Columbia (since you'd be applying Regular Decision)
Slight stretch: Kellogg, Booth
Sweet spot: Cornell, Darden

For NYU, you should have a reasonable shot given that you have a lot of family there (especially immediate family members which is what matters most to schools: parents and siblings).
