What Do You Think of My Business School Application Plan? [#permalink] New post 10 Jul 2013, 09:01
My general profile is below.

I would like to know your thoughts on the schools in my current plan for applying to schools for 2014.

What shot do I have at CBS (my reach)? Do these schools help with my goal of returning to PE? Any I should add/remove? Anything that would make me more/less competitive at any particular school?

Hey
What I can read from your profile is that you have a low GPA and highly unbalanced GMAT score........Working for financial sector you must have a strong Quant score.
As far as I see its difficult in al the schools you mentioned....except TUCK or Darden...... But in that case too, u must have an outstanding Essay......

Consider kudos If my post helps!!!!!!!!!!!!
