GPA: 3.44

Active CPA

Target Schools: Duke (Early Action), Kellogg (R1), Ross (R1)


You have a competitive profile for Duke and Ross. Kellogg is a stretch. There are no safeties here. If you want to increase the chances that you end up at a business school in September, I think you should apply to an additional school or two, where you are either competitive or perhaps a little more than competitive.

Best,
Linda

Thank you for the quick response.

Do you think Kenan-Flagler at UNC-Chapel Hill would be considered a safety school for me? I know they have a strong private equity and investment banking program.

Notre Dame and Carnegie Mellon have shown a lot of interest and have provided application fee waivers. Is it safe to assume those two schools could be safety schools for me?

I think you have a competitive profile for these three programs. I do not consider them safeties for you. For safeties, consider Rochester Simon or Tulane.

Best,

As a quick follow-up to this, I was accepted to Duke today, so I will be withdrawing my applications from Northwestern and Michigan.
