I am a sophomore at IIT (ISM) Dhanbad. I am currently a research consultant at worldquant and I’ll be appearing for CFA and FRM in the final year of my course. Assuming a GMAT>700. What are the chances I can get accepted at the ivy league or lbs taking my 7.5 gpa into consideration. And I want to get into b school right after my bachelors.

Hello sankalp24 ... welcome to the community.

Though I am not an expert, the schools you have mentioned needs more than IIT, CFA degree & & 700+ score.

i. 3-4 yrs of quality work-ex is preferred.
ii. Being at or above the median accepted GMAT score of the targeted school is preferred.
iii. Need good quality volunteer exp or social engagement.
iv. Some extra-curricular(s) would be an added benefit
v. And last but not the least ....... a good application ( the challenging part !!)

Hope this helps.

700+ literally means 710 - 800. So, I would concentrate on GMAT as of now and try to achieve the best possible score. Once, done..... I would then start to check out on programs.

Hi sankalp24,

Thanks for writing in.

Schools evaluate profiles holistically and we will need more details on your academic and professional achievements, extra-curricular activities, as well as career goals in order to be able to evaluate your profile in greater detail.

We suggest that you focus on GMAT, get as high a score as you can and then focus on your essays work. A 710 will frankly be on the lower side and you must aim upwards of a 730 to have a decent chance (of course, this depends on a number of other factors, as well).

Hope this helps.

All the best!
