Hello Kevin,

I wanted to ask you, your opinion about applying to MIT Sloan in Rd2. Is it true that their Rd3 is much like Rd3 at other schools and applicants are at a significant disadvantage?

I'm currently in my senior year of undergrad, majoring in Chemical Engineering. I am an African American male, and currently have a 3.2 gpa(Few extracurriculars-VP of NOBBCHE, member of other organization. Upon graduation, I will be working for the top oil company in the U.S. I am pretty new to this forum, but I am pretty sure that within 5 years of graduation, I will go back to obtain my MBA.

I do understand that my GPA is on the low side. What range of GMAT scores will allow me to become a competitive applicant for the top 10 MBA programs? Also does my GPA put me out of the running for H/S/W?

I appreciate any advice that you can offer.

For this reason, I kindly request that you send all your inquires to, and there your inquires will be responded to promptly!

Thanks very much and appreciate your understanding.
