Profile Evaluation For Round 3 Please [#permalink] New post 10 Feb 2012, 11:41
Background:
-28 year old white male
-GMAT: 680 (Q44 V39)
-Undergrad: BA in Spanish and Economics from a large state school. 3.7 overall GPA with a 4.0 in Econ classes. Won one scholarship.
-Grad: MA in Linguistics with recommendation for a PhD. 3.71 GPA.
-Professional Experience: I taught Spanish for two years as a TA at the institution where I got my MA. After graduation, I was hired to teach part-time as an associate lecturer. Last year I was promoted to full lecturer. This year I was promoted to a position that requires me to train and evaluate new foreign TAs.
-As a grad student I was president of the department's honor society for two years.

I'm interested in combining General Management and International Business. My target schools for round three are Indiana, Notre Dame, Duke, Northwestern, Chicago, and USC. With my current GMAT and background, do I stand a chance at any of these schools? Thanks in advance for your help!

Expert's post
Definitely an unorthodox pedigree for b-school, which sometimes is an advantage since it helps you stand out, but only if you have a compelling reason for wanting the MBA and a well defined post MBA vision. I am not seeing much of a connection between your UG and MS degree and business, so make sure you have a story which will make sense to the adcoms. One very important question they will ask (of all applicants) is what do you bring to the table that will be of value to your fellow classmates, so be prepared to think on how your professional experience has given you skills which you b-school comrades will find useful in a teamworking situation. If you have a good quant score, you GMAT should be fine.
