Profile Review/Evalution [#permalink] New post 07 Jan 2014, 01:53
Greetings,

Minority male. I attended a Midwest Jesuit/Catholic institution. I majored in Communication Studies w/ a 3.0 overall gpa. Major GPA was over 3.5. I initially transferred into the institution after undergoing some massive personal issues. I was working part-time, interning (three major internships) all while tending to my grandparents needs (commuter). I also graduated and went directly into sales. I have been working in sales for four years. I belong to several nonprofit boards in the Chicagoland area. I have pretty solid letters of recommendations.

My range with my practice GMAT hasn't been the most solid - I keep averaging 530-580. Ideally, I would like to go to Vanderbilt. I have been looking part-time B-School in Chicago. University of Chicago and Northwestern. What sort of range should I be targeting on my GMAT? Also, how should I position myself?

Best,

BoyWhiteCollar.

Hi there,

Thanks for posting. It sounds like your top priority right now is that GMAT. I suggest investing in a course or tutoring to help you bring that up; great improvements are possible. For any of the 3 programs you've mentioned, you'd want 680+. And with a lower-than-average GPA, GMAT can become even more important. Otherwise in terms of positioning I don't know too much about you yet ;), but certainly a strong sales person with excellent communication skills... that's as far as I can get so far. Generally I advise that applicants spend a lot of in-depth time brainstorming, and hold a brainstorming session with my clients too, to really dig deep and think about what makes you unique.... what experiences, traits, skills, etc will you bring to the program. How do you want to be remembered by the admissions committee, etc.

Let us know if we can help further!
