Hello, looking for an evaluation and a little advice. I got a 680 on the gmat (41 V Quant 42). A little pissed about the quant score considerably lower than I had been scoring (70 to 75% range). I would rather not take it again. I am wondering about my chances at all the top ten, some of top 15 also, schools. I have 3.92 GPA at a state school, my major is business economics. I have taken a fair amount of quantitative classes and aced all of them. Here is my resume :

Bachelor of Science in Business Administration May 2013

I'd like to apply to NYU, Cornell, and Harvard as a reach. Wondering how my chances are and what I might be able to do to improve, I will be working for JP Morgan when I graduate. Thanks so much for your help!

You don't really have the credentials to warrant an "early" invitation to b-school (early = before you log 2-5 years of work experience). REally, out of your list only the HBS 2+2 program is designed for freshly minted undergrads, and you would need a considerably higher GMAT and perhaps more unusual achievements and a compelling reason for why now is the right time for you to go to school and not later like everyone else in order to get the attention of this very highly competitive program. Even though the 2+2 and similar programs such as Yale Silver Scholars target new grads, they still require you to break out with a couple years work experience before they will grant the degree. Better to log a couple of impactful years at the bank first and then go back to school--you will be better prepared and likely have an easier run at your target schools.

Hello, sorry my original post was a bit unclear. I was wondering how my profile looked assuming I would be applying in 2-3 years. I.E should I strongly consider retaking GMAT or will my quant grades be enough to qualm any of those concerns, further what types of things could I do in the next few years to make my application stick out. Thanks!
