Hi Linda,

Thanks in advance for any advice.

24/White/Male - Looking to apply Fall 2013 for 2014 matriculation.

Education:

Ivy league undergrad (not HYP), double major in Economics and Psychology. ~3.0 GPA

GMAT:

740 (Q50, V40), 97% percentile

Extra Curricular:

In college, was a four year varsity athlete on a conference championship team. I am hoping to partially explain my low GPA through inefficient time-management during my first two years of school. I struggled to balance athletics with 15+ practice hours a week, year round, and a demanding course load. However, I learned from those first two years, practicing much better time-management during my final two years, as evidenced by my significantly higher GPA junior year, and even higher GPA senior year.

Work Experience:

Boutique Management Consulting firm with an emphasis on the use of analytics to solve client problems, 2 years (3 by the time I matriculate). Projects have been varied but have been Strategy/Operations focused for Fortune 500 clients, with heavy use of analytics to add-value for clients. Played a leading role on multiple cases, and was promoted to an associate position early. I am looking to get an MBA as I feel as if I could learn a lot on how to apply my analytic skill set on a larger scale. I want to continue in consulting after my MBA, preferably for one of the larger firms, with a long-term career goal of becoming a COO for a major company.

Wanted to get your thoughts on my odds at getting into a top 10 B-school. I think Harvard/Stanford might be a stretch, but I really like Booth/Wharton/Darden/Tuck and would like to hear your thoughts on my odds of getting into those schools.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

John,

I do think that Harvard and Stanford are stretches for you. But given your work experience, GMAT, upward grade trend, and the demands of varsity athletics, I think you have a shot in the top 10.

Please let me know if you would like help with your MBA application.
