What are my chances of getting into Kellogg? [#permalink] New post 30 Aug 2010, 13:29
3.2 GPA in Finance from Florida State University
690 GMAT score
3 years of work experience at a fortune 500 company
born in Cuba, fluent in Spanish, minored in French

Please let me know if you think I have legitimate chance or if I'm just dreaming...

And is there anything else I should be focusing on to increase my chances?

Thanks

I apologize - just realized there was a profile evaluation thread.

Odds seem reasonable. Not impossible but not a stellar profile either. So far there's nothing outstanding about your profile, but you haven't really told me much other than a few tiny details. Cuban background will add value and diversity to profile.

Kellogg's average GMAT is 714 for the class of 2012. They don't say much about average GPA's but it's probably in the 3.5 range like for most top b-schools. What I'm trying to say is that from an academic perspective you're below average. Perhaps give the GMAT another shot if you feel you can score higher? Having said that, with a 690 and 3.2 GPA it doesn't mean you will get an automatic rejection, but the rest of your applications needs to be strong.

As mentioned, perhaps share some more details (e.g. more on career performance, post-MBA goals, extracurricular activities, etc.).

With stellar essays, decent recommendations and amazing interview performance your chances look decent. The rest of your application has to be absolutely stellar to get a nod from Kellogg.
