Profile Evaluation for Reapplicant [#permalink] New post 28 Aug 2012, 11:35
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.

I hate to be discouraging, but even with the increased score I am not optimistic about your chances at these programs, especially CBS and NYU. No harm in trying if you want to try, but unless there is something truly remarkable in your experience or application volume declines again this year, it's going to be hard for you to compete.

If you tell me what you want to do post-MBA, I could maybe recommend a few schools.

You may want to take a look at MBA Reapplicant 101.

Best,
Linda

Look into Rochester Simon, Georgetown, UT Austin, and Tulane. I suggest you apply to maybe 4 of the schools you have on your list and at least two of the ones I'm suggesting. Your grades and work experience are strong, but that GMAT score is an obstacle at your listed target programs, unless there is something truly remarkable that I'm not picking up in your post.

You might be interested in Best MBA Programs: A Guide to Selecting the Right One, which is a free download, or my book, MBA Admissions for Smarties, which goes into more detail about both how to choose where to apply and then how to present yourself effectively.

Best,

Linda
