I am applying to business school in the fall of 2019 with targets being UVA, UCLA, Cornell. I went to a top 5 liberal arts school and was a 4 year varsity athlete. I achieved a 720 GMAT, however, my GPA is on the low side at 3.2. I have 3 years experience at a real estate investment firm in NYC and would like to continue to pursue real estate after my MBA.
-First, what do you think my chances are at these schools with these stats and do you have any other suggestions of good fits?
-Second, I am looking to pursue an alternative transcript and take a class or two as I got a C+ in my intro to Calc and Statistics (with upward trajectory from then on). I am based in NYC and was wondering if you might have any suggestions of courses to compensate for Intro Calc/Statistics courses that are not too labor intensive. How do you think the following would appear to an ADCOM?(leaning towards the NYU course)

Baruch College-INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICS AND PROBABILITY
NYU-FINANCE MATH/STATISTICS: A SKILL ENHANCEMENT AND REVIEW COURSE



Open to suggestions!

Hi there,
I like the idea of the NYU course as well, so see if you can complete that with an A!
Your schools mentioned are appropriate though yes competitive; consider adding UNC to the list... a high producer of grads going into the RE industry and slightly safer but in that group. UCLA will be the most challenging on your list given the # of applicants and acceptance rate but still worth a shot. There are a lot of factors I don't know about you at this point (such as accomplishments at work, impact/leadership, quality of recommendations, community experiences etc) that can make a difference in overall chances and outcomes. Spend some time now researching and getting to know the programs well, it will only help you as you work on essays and interview responses about why each school is right for you down the road! Good luck!
