Evaluation Request: GMAT 680 [#permalink]

Hi Everyone,

Happy new year!

Would just like to ask you guys to evaluate my profiles and assess my chances of getting into the following schools (aiming for their respective full time MBA programs):

1. Columbia
2. NUS
3. IESE
4. IE

Got a 2.89 (out of 4.0) undergraduate cumulative GPA which I know is low. School is De La Salle University in the Philippines.

By the time I apply I will have worked 70 months already. Started working on July 2012 in Ernst & Young Philippines rendering audit services. I also currently work in this firm.

Got promoted three times already (the last of which gave me a managerial position) and I have led all of my audit teams to conduct timely, successful, quality audits. I also advocate audit data analytics, introducing it to my teams to conduct higher quality audits. I am considered a resource person for audit quality and for audits conducted under the PCAOB standards. Also facilitated several workshops on audits and data analytics.

In addition to this, founded a start up in 2015. The start up serves as a digital solutions service provider to small businesses in the Philippines. There was a struggle in the first two years but in 2017 the start up got selected as a top idea in an incubator program and has since entered into contracts that will help boost profitability in the future. I am the finance officer of this start up, and to some extent I manage the legal aspects, such as dispute management and compliance with regulatory requirements.

Unfortunately, no extra curricular activities.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Brutal and honest,
1. Columbia will have a big concern with the low GPA, and the low GMAT
2. The ones lower down your targets seem more realistic, but will depend a lot on your achievements, goals and how you link them with your story.

Hope it helps

Yea low GMAT/GPA will
Keep you out of Columbia. So if you are passionate about that program then you will need to improve your score. The other schools are certainly in play with a good application
