I'm hoping to gauge what you guys think in terms of my chance at some top tier programs given that I come from a nondiverse, over represented group.
The schools I’m shooting for are:
Career Goal: Management consulting or business development in the energy sector.
GMAT:690(48q, 38v); 5.5AWA
GPA: 3.8 (Finance and Spanish Duel-Major) Top 5 public school
WE: Currently 2 yrs IB Bulge Bracket Energy and Resources (Given top tier ranking)
Passed CFA Level 1
1)Active volunteer in local rodeo.
2)Active Volunteer in providing tax returns for low income, Spanish speaking individuals.
3)Was awarded "Volunteer of the Year" for the tax preparation work along with being nominated and subsequently awarded for a company "Community Star" award. (Only given to one individual in US Banking)
4)Top 30 in state amateur tennis (Texas)
I realize my GMAT score is on the low end for these schools, but I’ve taken it twice already (680, 690) and I don’t think I can drastically improve my score.
I’m thinking about going the admissions consultant route to give me an extra push. Stacy Blackman
Any thoughts and/or recommendations of other schools that fit my career goal and I have a shot at getting in are appreciated!
