I am trying to understand what programs I have a realistic chance of being admitted to (for fall 2011) given how late I am in the application cycle (basically round 3).

Profile:
White Male - 26 yrs old
Undergrad GPA = 3.41 from OSU Fisher, Major - logistics, Minor - econ
Work Experience 4 yrs - 1yr supervisor role within large distribution center (managed ~ 40 team members), 3yrs purchasing specialist for major auto OEM.
GMAT - 710 (46Q, 41V) AWA 5.5
Volunteer - As an undergrad I had significant experience volunteering as a tutor for elementary school children, since I graduated I have volunteered informally at my significant other's school (she is a teacher) doing similar work.

Goal Post MBA is to take on a more strategic role - management consulting is a strong interest for me. Internal consulting / business analyst is also a consideration.

Do I have a shot at these programs this late?

Texas
Georgetown
Virginia
UNC
Ohio State

Thanks!

Even for Round 3, you probably have a reasonable shot at the schools you listed.

However, you should consider waiting until Round 1 this fall, and apply to higher ranked schools where you would still be competitive for, like Duke, Darden (on your list already), Michigan, and maybe even schools like Sloan, Kellogg or Booth. You have enough of a shot that it's worth focusing on the top 16 schools, also because if you're looking to get into mgmt consulting, most of their recruiting efforts are focused on the top 16.

Thanks for the advice - I really appreciate it!

I have been debating whether or not to wait until next fall to apply to improve my chances of being accepted. I just didn't have a good idea of what a realistic goal would be if I decided to do that.

I think I'll still give it a shot this year and see what happens - if I don't like the result I may indeed decide to wait as you suggested.

Thanks for taking the time to help!
