University of Pheonix Online.

I dont know man, depends what you want to do. Tell us about yourself.

You are an above average GMAT taker.
You are a below average academic.
You manage a team of people but may not be a leader.
You work at some company somewhere doing something in some role for some reason but I dont know what.

Most of you answered exactly as I would have! Phoenix online is a good suggestion. Look, no one can really know if I am a amazing leader, or I got my promotion because I sucked off the big boss, so number stats are the only thing you can really guess. Assume average applicant intangibles and go off GPA and GMAT alone.

Anyone can look at the stats and make a guess. What's the point of asking your question here?

Your GMAT is in line with most of the top 15 schools. Your GPA is towards the bottom for top 15 schools. If you apply to these schools, your chances of gaining entry would be below the avergae admit rate. So say you wanted to apply to Columbia. Their admit rate is about 15%. Your scores are below average. Your chances of gaining admission are below 15% unless you have something else to distinguish your application.

If on the other hand you're looking at a trans-elite like Texas your GPA is still a good bit below their average, but your GMAT is higher than their average. Just going by the numbers, you probably have a chance in line with their overall admit rate of 40%.

Just going by your scores, if you apply to a bunch of the schools in the 7-15 range you have a chance of getting into one of them. You'd be an extremely long shot at Northwestern, Chicago or MIT, and have virtually no chance at Harvard, Stanford, Wharton or Columbia.

I figured just about the same. However, due to the fact that your recs have to **** fill out a new form for every school, and can't just send generic rec to each school, really limits how many schools I feel I should apply to. I will prob just go to shithole Stayte U.

Did someone say Hawaii??

I serisouly thought about Hawaii for abut 5 mins. They have an mba program that has an exchange program with a university in China (where I want to work in the future) and I think they specialize in international business.

With the way international trade is going, I would think that such a program would be extremely valuable even if you stay in the US, considering how much business is done with china.

But of course I have no idea about the quality of their school or program etc...
