Hi!

I would like some help deciding if I would be a competitive applicant for the schools I am applying to and if it makes a difference applying R1 vs R2.

STATS:
24 YO Caucasian Female
Applying for Fall 2018.
GPA 3.27 - BBA Management, Mays Business School, Texas A&M University
GRE - 326

Work Experience: I have worked Oracle for 2 years and was promoted to Business Strategy Analyst 4 months ago. This was a major accomplishment as I was chosen out of 60 internal applicants nationwide and am the youngest analyst they have for their sales operations.

Extracurricular: In college, I held an officer position for 2 years in my sorority, was in multiple business school clubs, on the club soccer team at A&M, along with volunteering at The Boys & Girls Club. Post College: I was selected to be president of Oracle Volunteers and well as being in the Austin Young Chamber of Commerce.

Post MBA Goals: I am looking for a concentration in finance and would like to go into consulting at one of the Big 4.

Concerns: I'm concerned that my GPA/GRE is too low for the schools I am considering as well as my age and years of work experience. Also, what are your thoughts on submitting the GRE vs GMAT scores?

Schools Applying to (In preference order):
Vanderbilt
Washington (Foster)
Notre Dame
Ohio State
Georgia Tech
Rice

I am realistic and know that my scores are too low for top 20 schools so I am looking just below that. I'd like to know if I stand a chance at any of the above schools and if I should be targeting others around this rank area?

Any insight is much appreciated :)

You have a lot to be proud of and I think many schools would be interested in your profile. Your GRE score may get you more traction and I think you an be competitive in all the schools you list. For consulting these big 4 will have relationships with all the major programs. You might also add UNC Kenan-Flagler and Indiana also. I think you are selling yourself short to say no to top 20- I encourage you to reach out to us for a free consult to help more about how we can build your confidence and help you tell your most compelling stories. Your work progression is impressive.
