If you earn a 700 and have evidence that you know how to perform in an academic environment (ie you have taken recent courses and earned A's, there were extenuating circumstances that affected your performance as an undergrad, you have progressed well professionally) then you would have a chance at the listed schools, with the possible exception of NYU GSAS.

Best,
Linda

I was thinking that with 650 GMAT score Fordham and Baruch would be competitive however still not enough for the UIUC or Indiana Kelly right?
