Hello. I am from Nigeria. Please I would like to know if I have a good chance at my schools for R2: Emory, UNC, Darden, MIT Sloan.
I scored 710 on GMAT (50Q, 35V). Sad thing is that I actually had 740 (48Q, 42V) six years ago. My latest gmat was in november. I retook it in December (2 weeks ago) but I had 690 (49Q, 35V), a score that I cancelled. I don't know how my verbal ability declined despite feeling more knowledgeable. Well, I'm applying with the 710 (50Q,35V) score.
My gpa is 3.24 on a 4.0 scale. I was a math major at a little Ivy (Williams, Amherst, Wesleyan, Middlebury, Pomona). I will have about 7 years work experience when I start in the fall. I currently work in development finance institution, and I've passed CFA level 2. Thank you.

Hi there,
While there are a number of details I am not up to speed on, including exact accomplishments and leadership examples at work, with the info you have shared I would be cautiously hopeful for a chance at the schools mentioned, with MIT being the most difficult reach at your GMAT level, fyi. Frustrating that you have the stronger score years ago! But for now if you are set on trying to begin next fall, sounds like it makes sense to go for it, and with deadlines around the corner hopefully you are close to ready with your essays and apps. Good luck!
