I just took the GMAT for the first time and would love some opinions on my profile. I have an undergrad GPA of 2.75, a 680 on the GMAT, 3 years of relevant work experience, and, in my opinion, strong intangibles (good recommendations, a strong "story"). I'm interested in small business/entrepreneurial programs and have been looking at the following schools so far:

Schulich (York U)
Rotman (U of Toronto)
Haas
Anderson
Kellogg

The two questions that I would love to hear peoples opinions on are:

1. What are my chances of getting into either of the Toronto schools right now?
2. Clearly the US schools are a reach at this point. What do you think I would need to raise my GMAT to in order to have a serious chance at these schools?

Any advice/words of wisdom you guys have is much appreciated.

Thanks!

I stumbled over this tool today. It supposedly gives you a ballpark of where you would stand with various schools based on you quantitative and qualitative data. I took it and it seemed fairly reasonable to me. Obviously, don't put too much stock into it, but it can be a good starting point to help you answer those questions.

Interesting link rpratt620, but I find the whole methodology is a little bit dubious

rpratt620, thanks for the link, it looks interesting. I haven't had a chance to go through the whole thing yet, but will try to tonight. Does anyone else have any thoughts?

No points for minority status in that metric? How was that overlooked?
