Hi there,
Thanks for reaching out – great information and questions! First, I wanted to tell you that I can totally relate to your background and needing the MBA to transition careers. My first job out of undergrad was as a teacher with Teach for America, so I definitely needed scholarship money to make the MBA journey a reality. That being said, getting an MBA is an incredible and invaluable experience that made my career transitions possible (so, it’s totally worth it!).

For your GMAT, I can see that you’ve made steady progress – great job! My biggest advice would be to invest in studying as much as you can right now, as your GMAT will determine the range of programs you can get into. Recent articles have stated that “720 is the new 700” for top 10-20 schools; this can be even higher if you are part of a competitive applicant set and the later you apply to programs.

If you'd like to chat live about your profile and some of the questions you have, or if you’d like to schedule a complimentary 30 minute consultation, feel free to email me at Eileen@vantagepointadmissions.com.

Kindly,
Eileen
