U Chicago - GMAT 720 - Profile Evaluation Please :) [#permalink] New post 18 Jul 2007, 11:04
I went to the University of Chicago and majored in Econ. I have a low GPA 2.6 and a good GMAT 720. Can anyone comment on my chances for being accepted into a top 10 school with these stats? I plan on applying to HBS/Wharton/Cal Berkeley/Kellog/Coumbia/NYU/USC.

Other parts of my profile:

- Male Caucasian
- 28 yrs old
- 6 yrs work exp.
- Solid work experience in Real Estate industry, doing asset management, consulting for a large reputable firm and ultimately working on large scale real estate development projects


I appreciate any insight into my chances.

Thanks

drobdc,

All schools will give you some slack because Chicago is an elite undergrad program, but the numbers are only part of the issue. HBS is probably impossible. Wharton, Haas, Kellogg, and Coumbia are very unlikely unless your work experience shows unusual impact and substantial leadership and you have a commensurate community profile. NYU is somewhat less unlikely but still difficult unless you have the work/nonwork leadership/impact just mentioned. You have a decent shot at USC if you maximize the leadership/impact in your essays and execute well in showing your 'uniqueness' vis-a-vis other applicants.

Good luck,
