Work Experience: I have been working full time for the past 6+ years as a math teacher at a public school in the Bronx (did the New York City Teaching Fellows Program). Have been involved in leadership positions within the school such as scheduling director, SLT (school leadership team), coaching, mentoring new teachers, leading curriculum development and planning
GMAT: Q- 50, V-44 Total- 770 AWA -6.0
Educational Experience: Graduated in 2006 from Haverford College with a 3.15 GPA and a major in Economics. M Ed from City College in 2009 with a 3.4 GPA.
Extra-Curricular: Almost all of my work as been at my school, either coaching (football, basketball, volleyball, and baseball) and tutoring (after school and on Saturdays) but I have also been active in intramural volleyball and basketball leagues
Target Schools: Ideally I am looking for a school with a good dual degree program MBA/M Ed (Stanford, Darden) but am also looking at HBS, Columbia, Tuck, Ross, MIT, Yale
Post MBA: I would like to return to education to work on the district or state level or possibly in a network of charter schools
Any feedback you could give me would be greatly appreciated, Thanks
Your GMAT is stellar. Your GPA is low for schools like HBS, Columbia, Tuck, MIT, and Stanford. It is also low for Yale and Darden, but they may be more forgiving and are excellent fits for you. You may also want to consider Georgetown.
The key challenge for you will be showing that you need an MBA. It's doable, especially if you are looking at those dual degree programs, but I believe the schools will look at that aspect of your application very closely.
