Profile Evaluation....White Male, IB [#permalink] New post 03 May 2011, 08:25
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:
Dartmouth
Yale
MIT
Duke
Cornell

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)
Age:24
Passed CFA Level 1
Extracurricular: Extensive.

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)

Other thoughts:
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!

Your GPA should be able to supplement for the slightly-below average GMAT score. If you don't think you'll be able to improve it much, don't worry about it and focus on your applications. With your post-MBA goals in mind, exactly how did you come up with these schools? I particularly like the idea of you knowing to stretch out your school choices by putting top, middle, and lower-tiered schools on there, but not sure how you ended up with certain ones, such as yale and johnson. While we're on this target, also look at michigan ross, virginia darden, and berkeley haas.
