I am the lead admissions consultant at Manhattan Review.

Based on the information you provide here, I believe that you are a competitive candidate for a top 5 program. However, you need to complete your GMAT exam and perform just as well as you did on your GRE exam. Also, you need to prepare outstanding essays, have compelling recommendations written on your behalf, perform well on your interview and apply early (not last round).

So, while you have a solid foundation from which to build, there is still a lot of work that you have to get done. Make sure that you allocate the time and energy need to prepare for all aspects of the application.

You can watch our free videos on how to get into a top mba programs on our website - go to Students / Free MBA Advice. Our YouTube videos will be uploaded within weeks or days as well. Questions, drop us a line here.
