I was wondering if you could evaluate my profile and comment on schools I am targeting?
All numbers are for matriculation in the Fall of 2011
Undergrad GPA: 3.35
Undergrad Major: Aerospace Engineering from a large public university. I have also taken a handful of graduate level business courses post-grad for personal fulfillment.
GMAT:690 but I was planning on a retake.
Work Experience: 4 years at a large aerospace company with some very unique experiences that show leadership. Promoted once. I also worked in the engineering department of a large airline in undergrad.
Extracurriculars: Club sports captain for many sports (college and post college). I competitively compete in one high level amateur sport and am also an avid golfer.
Awards: State mathematics award in HS (not sure how relevant that is)
Focus post-mba: I would like to pursue an MBA to transition from engineering into the finance field.
I am assuming that I retake the GMAT with at least a 720 and am planning on focusing on the following schools:
Chicago, Kellogg, Wharton, Columbia, NYU, MIT, Duke, Texas
Although that is where my list is right now, I fully expect to narrow it down for applications. Are these schools in the right regime for my statistics?
Any advice you could give would be very much appreciated.
