Hello njdude2012, thanks for your question.

I think you’ll have a couple of challenges to overcome in your profile.

The first is your GMAT. As you are aware, you from an overrepresented demographic in the MBA applicant pool that outperforms on the test. To have even a shot at the top programs, I’d recommend getting a 700 overall score and 80%+ on both your verbal and quantitative percentages. That would simply open the door at the top programs. Without that, I think you’d be a long shot.

Second, give your background, how did you come to your goals? In terms of your post-MBA goals, paint a picture that cohesively ties together your past, present, and future. Right now, I’m having a tough time connecting your background in technology with banking and/or consulting. I’m not saying you can’t craft a good story around this, but right now it’s not convincing enough.

I do think your management and extracurricular experiences could differentiate you, so the more you lean on those stories, the more competitive you could be.

So, with your current GMAT score, I’d shoot more for the Stern level of program rather than Columbia or Wharton. I hope this helps!

Best of luck,
Brian
