Profile evaluation for reapplicant [#permalink] New post 28 Aug 2012, 11:34
I am new at GMAT club and wanted to get evaluated on my profile. I applied to Yale, Columbia, nyu, Cornell last year but got rejected by all schools. My GMAT was weak- I applied with a 640 (approx. 65% in both). I retook the GMAT and got a 670 (verbal 82%, math 67%). Below is my profile:

Indian male, 28 years old
Graduated from UNC Chapel Hill Business School with 3.8 gpa
Working for PWC Boston office for 6.5 years in financial consulting - management position
Consulting projects include experience with international clients
Received CFA
Strong volunteer experience with international social organization
Hobbies include golf, tennis, guitar

My target schools are the above from last year plus LBS, Michigan and Duke. I wanted to get an idea of my chances with both the schools I plan to reapply to as well as the new schools given my increased GMAT score.

I appreciate your time.

Hello,

Sounds like you've got a pretty well-rounded background. I'd say that your new score should help you be more competitive at your target schools, but it's still on the low side for most of these programs.

Of your list, I think Columbia might be too far a reach with a 670 GMAT. I might suggest that you swap that out for something more realistic like UT Austin. I'd think your target schools should be Yale, Cornell, NYU, UT Austin (or something thereabouts). I think Duke, Michigan, LBS are reach schools and I'd suggest taking one of them off your list and replacing it with a Tier 2 safety.

For the programs that you are reapplying to, it would also help if you could show additional progress since your last application - a promotion or new leadership role at work or something like that.

Good luck,
Mili
