For certain reasons (athletics, location, family near by) I went to a below par undergrad public college and graduated with a 3.7/4 GPA in business admin con finance. Out of high school, with my GPA, SAT scores and extracurriculars, I could have gone to a tier 1 school but instead chose my undergrad for reasons other than academics (looking back probably not the smartest decision). Now I want to apply to a top business school for a Master’s degree in finance (or finance related depending on what certain schools offer) to make a career switch to I Banking or consulting (currently I work at a top law firm doing client management, long story thought I wanted to go into law). 750 GMAT score, and I had decent finance extracurriculars in undergrad.

Question 2: Can I include high school information in my application and perhaps include an essay about my undergraduate college choice?

Thanks for an input

No need.. 3.7 GPA and if you had good quant scores in UG with 750 gmat you can apply anywhere. I went to a highly ranked regional school in northeast but many here may or may not of heard of it (depends where they live ;P)... and it didn't impede on my acceptance to CBS. The GPA + GMAT offset the name of school. If you had a 3.0 it'd be a different story. Goodluck
