A friend of ours had Guillain-Barre. He was initially paralyzed from the shoulders down. It's a serious illness. I hope you've gotten full function back.

You certainly have a shot at all your target programs, but CBS, Haas, Kellogg, Sloan, and Stern are stretch programs. You have a competitive profile for Duke. You may want to consider Yale and Cornell.

Best,
Linda

Thanks, Linda. Your feedback is helpful.

I understand that my GMAT is a bit average/low for my profile (asian male in finance), although I am a Thai Native.
When you say stretch schools, do you mean I have a low probability of getting accepted into those schools? Is my GMAT score the main consideration in your assessment?

Thanks,

Calvin

Yes and yes, plus the intense competition at your target programs.
