Profile Evaluation, Help Greatly Appreciated! [#permalink] New post 17 Nov 2007, 11:31
Hi there!
24 year old white female.
Graduated with 3.1 GPA from top public university (double major, liberal arts, lower gpa due to having multiple jobs at once to support myself)
GMAT: 680, 41 Verbal, 42 Quan, 6.0 AWA
Work Experience: 2 years at non-profit, nice contributions, great recommendations.
Other: Lots of service/community oriented activities during college. Less since, because I have been taking graduate level classes, including some to boost my weak quan background (although I had lots of stats classes in undergrad and plenty of financial related experience since, I had no calc/advanced math classes).

Schools I'm considering are UNC, Duke, Georgetown, and George Washington...Any ideas, or input? What are my chances at these schools? I don't seem to be the typical applicant, and I want to work in the non-profit sector, which is also not so typical, so it's hard to compare myself to the profiles of other people. Above all, I don't want to be rejected everywhere!

Many thanks for any help!

Don't worry about having a unique or unuaul profile. If anything, this will definitely play to your advantage!

Applying to these schools will mean giving up a little of your uniqueness advantage, but also consider Yale, Kellogg, and Haas (if you're willing to cast a wider geographic net). They all have very strong non-profit management programs. Don't be shy about aiming for a couple of top-five schools. The schools you list are all good, and Duke especially may be a top school that's a great fit for you, but take a chance on one or two even more exclusive programs.

Ideally you'll have some good leadershop experiences to draw upon, both from your work experience and your community service. That's the only potential hole I see in your profile, aside from your low GPA (which you're addressing).
