It's simple - boost that GMAT score. With your current score and profile, you'll be a big stretch. With a 700 (and ideally a 720+), you will at least have enough of a shot that the top schools are worth focusing on.

Good luck

Thanks for the review Alex. Is it just a massive stretch in general because of my profile, or is it just the GMAT? Goes without saying that I will be putting some effort in to bring the scores up, but if its still an epic longshot maybe just shoot a little lower out the gate?

Thanks again!
