You have a chance at all your target schools, but HBS and MIT are stretch programs. Fuqua is your most likely acceptance. Also consider Darden, Ross, and Cornell.

Best,

Thank you Linda, I appreciate the feedback. I will start my research on Darden and the others.

Hello,

I’d consider you to be a qualified applicant to the programs you mention. The 710 GMAT is “okay” but it does the job, and you have a strong GPA. The programs are all reasonable reaches for you – some more reach than others (HBS being a pretty high reach, but not out of the bounds of "reasonable" in my view). You align with the programs in different ways, so develop your applications thoughtfully. Your industry and functional combination is an asset, a differentiating factor -- draw on it to show what you’ll contribute.

Thank you for the feedback Cindy. I always thought that my industry and functional combination was a liability (as well as my school), and it's good to know others may view it as an asset.
