louisforte,

Hi there, looks like you've got a great profile from what I can see (though really hard to tell with such limited info!) Academics looks great - as you say aim for 700+ but GPA is obviously a selling point for you! Looks like you've got some nice career progression/promotions - how about leadership examples? Do you manage others in or outside of the workplace? It's important to emphasize leadership and team work.
Seems like you have a lot of extra CV activities though I'm not sure what they are. Have you done other volunteering outside of mentoring? From what I can see you meet a lot of the criteria for many schools. Really it depends on which schools as well - mostly US? Or Int'l schools as well in Europe?
If you sign up for a free consultation with we can walk you through your CV, get to know you better and then suggest some schools that could be a good fit for you. https://fortunaadmissions.com/free-consultation/ It' will be much more thorough than this assessment!

Thanks for reaching out,

Lots of potential here, even if we don’t have all the information needed for a full profile evaluation (some details are missing and of course that GMAT score will also play a part, for example), so I do think you have a chance to be admitted to one of the schools you are targeting. However, I would urge you to look into the schools a bit more before you apply, in order to understand what school would best fit you, your post-MBA goal etc. If you can convince the schools you target of “fit” on both sides, that is a huge advantage.

If you’d like a more thorough profile evaluation you are welcome to request that from the ARINGO team here: https://aringo.com/mba-process-registration/

Good luck!
