Hi, Akhilanama,

Thanks for your post. For some of the top schools you are targeting (Berkeley, CMU), you may be able to improve your chances with a GMAT score in the 700s with at least 80th percentile on each section. With only two years of work experience, you are going to need to demonstrate your leadership and maturity. You will be in the program with other students with on average five years of work experience, so be clear in what ways you can contribute to the class. In terms of your career goals, you will need to communicate why these make sense and why you are making the shift just two years into your career. You will want to demonstrate transferable skills and experience from your current professional and volunteer (as long as within past 3 years) experience.

Good luck,

Susan Kaplan
