Urgent...Profile Evaluation.! [#permalink] New post 23 Oct 2012, 23:23
Hello I am looking for a profile evaluation.

Background information:

Undergrad - Purdue University GPA: 3.75
Major : Hospitality and Tourism Management
Several Deans Lists and student organizations

GMAT : 690 (Q47 V37) (considering a retake, thoughts on that?)

Work Experience - (3 years upon applications)
2010 - 2011 - Manager Four Star resort, first job out of college. Responsible for staff, training, interviews for staff, inventory. Moved around several different restaurant outlets, a lot of great experience in management.

2011 - Current - Foodservice consultant
Design of commercial kitchens and restaurants. A lot of design work and project coordination. Currently project coordinator but am training for promotion to manage my own projects and become a project manager

Extra Curricular -
Several Work and professional organizations where an active member always trying to network and improve standing

Volunteer work here and there. Volunteer mentoring students, humane society, habitat for humanity

Looking to improve my extra curriculars, it is a decent part of my application but looking to improve with more management positions within organizations and non profit organizations

Goals: I am aiming for a top 25 school that will work with me and allow me to continue my studies in the hospitality industry. I am looking to get an MBA to eventually lead to a job in a hospitality company that works on business and planning for hotels and restaurants. My eventual dream goal is to start my own hotel/resort chain

I feel an MBA would help me acheive these goals. I am not necessarily looking for a top 5 school but for a school that will work with my goals and allow me to continue this direction. Although a top 5 school would be great. I have identified a couple of schools that may be good fits, especially Cornell. What are your thoughts on my chances at a top ten school? Top twenty school?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Your work experience is decent and you have a good GMAT Score. You are in perfect stage of your career and a 3-4 years of work experience is what most B Schools look for. As per your GMAT Score i would recommend you to target Duke, Tepper, Indiana Kelley, Michigan State University, Emory, Texas and U T Austin which falls in the range of 690-700 average GMAT Score. However you need to be prepared for the questions like your rationale behind applying for a specific B school, so on and so forth.

There are many more but the above list comprises of a few good ones you should definitely target. It is highly advisable in your case to focus on your application evaluation essays. This is where you can demonstrate your leadership qualities, achievements, professional vision and other abilities. A well presented and perfectly written essay is absolutely critical to make a strong case for yourself during the final interview and more so when you have an average GMAT score.

It is advisable to seek assistance from professional consultants for guidance who can more closely review your situation and provide you with a list of B Schools where you would have chances of converting your application to admission. You should also get your essays reviewed from them before sending it along with your application to better your prospects.
