21 Jul 2014 (Unofficial Score) --- TOTAL 770 (99%), IR 8 (92%), Verbal 47 (99%), Quant 49 (79%)
(I took the GMAT again b/c the 2009 score will expire soon)

POST-MBA GOAL (still need to more clearly define this)

QUESTIONS
--Is my 3.0 GPA at Duke a big issue? Do my GMAT scores partially make up for this? (TOTAL 770 (99%), IR 8 (92%), Verbal 47 (99%), Quant 49 (79%))
--Is my lack of business/management work experience an issue?
--Should I add a school where it's more likely that I will be accepted? (I have been looking at UNC's Kenan-Fagler and Notre Dame's Mendoza)

Thank you very much for your help!
