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!

Hi,

The strong areas in your profile are good academic background with extracurricular activities; try to make it stronger by adding stellar application. As per your Profile and GMAT score you have fair chances at top 10, I would recommend you to also target Chicago Booth, Kellogg, Columbia, Cornell, Tuck, Duke and Ross Business School. As the average GMAT Score for these B Schools fall in between 650-790 range.
You should start applying soon as you seem to be in perfect stage of your career and around 3 - 7 years of work experience is what most of the above B Schools look for.
However you should also plan and need to cleverly prepare for questions like your objective behind applying for a specific B school, the next step for you to do some research on the above schools and get started with the applications.

Feel free to post any other query or concern that you might have.

Regards,
Neha Singh
