Hi there,

Thanks for your post. Overall your insurance background is a bit less common than some so that can be a plus; do you have experiences during your time working that you can cite where you showed leadership, made impact, contributed to results? Those can be really helpful in showcasing who you are as a potential leader and manager.

Your undergrad marks will be a challenge for sure. Based on those and the info here, roughly I'd say that LBS and probably IE and Darden would be 'reach' programs for you, the others may be closer to your likely range. For more on choosing schools, check out our free download at: http://info.mbamission.com/Selecting-Yo ... ram-E-Book.

You'll also want to be sure you can make a case for your interest in financial services and generally why get the MBA, and why each particular school is right for you. Good luck and keep us posted on questions!
