Hello Stacy,

Can I please get a quick profile evaluation for the following target schools?

2. NYU
3. Duke
4. UVA
5. Cornell
6. USC

I am a white male age 27 at matriculation.

Academics: BA in Economics with a 3.71 GPA from top 50 public university.
690 GMAT (88%) 42Q/42V (62%/95%)

Work Experience: 1 year treasury management at a small private company
3 years experience at matriculation working for PWM branch of a bulge bracket bank as a financial planner.

Extracurriculars: Division 1 Athlete in college with several associated accolades. I am also an active member of this team's alumni board working on fund raising and marketing.

I am looking at starting my essays right now, but have this nagging feeling that my GMAT quant score is going to hurt me and maybe I should try to start studying for it again. My current job is very quant heavy and I also have straight A's in all my undergraduate math courses including calculus. Thank you for taking the time to give me your input.

Hi Ucivball84,

Given your strong GPA majoring in economics, you should not be too concerned about your GMAT quant score. If you feel you can improve your GMAT score significantly (50+ points), it might be worth retaking, however you should not be overly concerned.

There is nothing in your application that would hurt your candidacy at the listed schools. What is important now are your essays and letters of recommendations because these will help define your personal brand. You should constantly be asking yourself, how can I differentiate yourself from the other competitive candidates?

What are you goals post-graduation and how will each MBA program help you reach those?

It is how you address these questions that will determine if you are accepted.

Hope this was of help. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions.
