Hello rjandial1986, thanks for your question.

I agree, I think your GMAT score will be a challenge in applying to top programs. As you are aware, you from an overrepresented demographic in the MBA applicant pool that outperforms on the test. To have even a shot at the top programs, I’d recommend getting a 700 overall score and 80%+ on both your verbal and quantitative percentages. That would simply open the door at the top programs. Without that, I think you’d be a long shot.

In terms of your background, your competitiveness will also rely on the quality of your leadership experience in and out of work. Can you draw upon “moments” when you truly led: influenced individuals and organizations, drove results, took initiative?

In targeting suitable schools, a good place to start would be to compile a list of programs that have a mean or median GMAT score close to yours. You should be competitive here. My rule of thumb is that if your GMAT score falls within the middle 80% range at a school, you have a shot. Otherwise, it could be an uphill battle.

I tend to avoid telling candidates where to apply simply because it’s an intensely personal choice that you should make. You will know best which program has:
• Resources that best meets your career needs
• A culture that resonates with your personal style
• Students whom you respect, can relate to, and have fun with!

I encourage all applicants to pound the pavement and talk to students and alumni from your target programs to find the best fit. It’s not easy, I know, but the effort will be worth it in the end, I assure you.

Best of luck,
Brian
