TFA --> Bschool [#permalink] New post 24 Apr 2012, 13:41
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.

Yes you should have a good shot at those schools. Your Teach for America experience will help you stand out as different from the typical applicant, which you should emphasize in your applications. Good community involvement, good GMAT, good GPA. You have all the key elements. One thing you will need to make sure to do is to tighten up your post MBA goal--fine to want to get what you missed, but b-schools want you to have a pretty clear vision for what you want to achieve after you graduate. Your experience will put you in a bucket similar to military applicants in that your experience is leadership driven and unusual. Leverage it for a solid post MBA goal and you should have a great shot! Let us know if we can help.
