Your background seems fairly strong so kinda surprised you only got into Georgetown. Did you use an admissions consultant? I'd probably speak with some to get a sense of where they think you went wrong and whether it's worth trying again next year. You're getting towards the upper end of the age ranges but there are a bunch of people I know at Booth who entered at 32/33 so it's definitely possible.

The main weakness in my application (after feedback from Darden), weak explanation of personal brand, weak explanation for fit, and unclear Post-MBA career. This makes sense as I only spent a week banging out 6 essays (applied through the Consortium), as it was around the time I was getting married.

Sorry to hear about your experience this season.

You must thank Darden for their feedback. I think all other big names notice the same issues in you application which is killer to you application, although your stunning GMAT score.

I believe that your non-traditional background with this GMAT score could secure a spot in big school, provided that you show the clarity in your goals. Next time it is worth investing your time and money with good consultant but actually you need to do some reflection about your short and long goals.

P.S. Federal consulting is for American citizens only.

Good luck

With your profile you probably should have secured an admit at a higher ranked program but the Darden explanation an yours as well sheds some light on why. Georgetown can help you reach your goals of federal consulting pretty easily so keep that in mind but you can probably do a bit better as a re-applicant
