Gmat 720 48Q 41V 8IR 6AWA

GPA 3.34 from Texas State University (average college) bachelors in accounting

30 months of experience, will have 42 by the time I enroll

Work for $60bln commercial bank. In the oil field services lending group. Underwrote over 600million of new and existing credit facilities. Helped companies through IPOs, acquisitions, bankruptcies, etc.

Did lead an analyst only set of meetings to help the bank determine why analysts were leaving for other banks (had approval from executive management to do this). Many of the ideas we came up with were implemented for long lasting value add.

Extracurricular currently includes the HEART program where I volunteer for an organization that helps dissablied adults work for good wages. They run concession stands at sporting events (Houston. Rockets, shell open) and since they are not allowed to handle the money the organization has volunteers run the registers and help the workers(people with dissabities).

Goal is to work for a top strategic consulting firm for 5/10 years and then transfer to industry in a management position.

I am targeting HBS Columbia Wharton and Kellogg

Please let me know if I would have a chance.

Gmat 720 48Q 41V 8IR 6AWAvery strong scores

GPA 3.34 from Texas State University (average college) bachelors in accounting Not quite as stellar-
but don't see it detracting too much- especially with your GMAT score

Please let me know if I would have a chance.I think you have a shot at all these schools- it would help you to really show through the application why you want each school and how it helps you- your work with disabled people could be a place to showcase leadership- and do use a proofreader for spelling!- Here are some quick access tips for these schools in approaching essays:
https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... mba-essay/
https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... hbs-essay/
https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... ton-essay/

I encourage you to reach out to us for a free consult because we have counselors who are alums at all these programs and can challenge you to do your best work on the essays for each program. The link to get a free consult is here:
https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/
While it may seem expensive to use a consultant, the benefit can be that if you have stronger essays you may be in a better position to be considered for scholarships- and even a partial one could offset and more the cost of a counselor!

And in terms of some other free materials you can review from us, I encourage you to sign up for our free newsletter at this link that has lots of appropriately timed articles on the MBA admissions process. The link to sign up is here: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... dmissions/

Best wishes to you! There's a lot to like in your profile- so just know the programs and also consider getting some advice from counselors who know these programs as alums!
