Chances for M7 mba?  [#permalink]

Hello i’m an asian male attending college in the U.S. i’m wondering if i have a chance of being accepted to M7 mba after my 2-3 years of work experience.

I current attending one of top5 public universities with economics major and have a gpa of 3.4. I’m planning to start my career at the consulting firm(hopefully 1-2 tier firm). Assuming i get over 740 on gmat, do i have a high chance of getting into one of M7 Mba?

Also, i’m graduating this May, but do you guys recommend me taking summer courses if i can increase my gpa to 3.5? Does 3.4 and 3.5 gpa have huge difference when it comes to Mba Admission?

Congratulations on almost graduating! Less than a couple months to go. To be honest, it is hard to evaluate you based on what we have here. I would really need to see a bit more:

- What school are you at?
- What firm will you work at (once you know)
- What EC activities did you do in college / what will you do after college
- Then there is of course performance at work, which is important

However, making some baseline assumptions, I would say that an M7 school can certainly be within range, however I would try to bump up the GPA as much as possible. If I were you, I would take every class I could to raise it as 3.4 is low for an M7 school.

Good luck! If you want further guidance on early planning, see below.

Hi an1018,

Thanks for sharing some information about yourself, and I think it's great that you're thinking about business school at this early stage! There are many factors that go into the decision process, but assuming that you can bolster your profile, then I do think that the M7 schools can be within your range. Definitely do whatever you can to get that GPA up. Also, doing well on the GMAT will be really important as well as the quality of your professional and extracurricular experiences.

The following blog post may be helpful for you: It's Never Too Early to Start Thinking About Business School. Also, we do offer a Pre-MBA Package to help candidates, just like you, strengthen their profiles so that they can put their best foot forward once they are ready to apply. You can learn more at the bottom of this page: https://www.ivygroupe.com/work-with-us.

Hope this helps!

Best,
Shaifali

The average data points for admitted applicants at M7 programs tends to be around 3.6 GPA and 730 gmat. Which you are very close. You are coming from a competitive category and if you can bump up your GMAT in a low effort way I would go for it.
