I will be matriculating after my 2 year commitment with Teach For America ends. I have a 700 gmat and 3.5 gpa. Graduated in 2011 from a state university in the south. Excellent leadership in college (president of a large org) and involved in the community now (big brothers/big sisters). I also started an sat prep program at my school and have some solid student achievement data. I want to go to business school now to develop a better fundamental understanding of business concepts that I felt my undergrad education lacked. I am interested in UNC, Darden and Duke. Are these realistic? Thanks.

Hi kwwill3,

I would need to hear more about your experience, but your application looks strong. Remember though that all of the reasons why a top program would admit you are in the details of your work experience, personal experiences, personality, values and overall story. These are things that clearly need to be fleshed out, beginning with your career goals.

Here is some school specific advice for the programs you are considering:

Duke: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-s ... uke-fuqua/
Darden: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-s ... ia-darden/

We also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
