My two target schools are Emory and Georgia Tech, both evening programs. Emory states a GMAT 80% Range of 560-720 while GT is 530-680.

What should my target score be for entry? I have always been very challenged by math, so I am concerned about my abilities here and want to be realistic about my scoring abilities.

For what it's worth, my undergraduate cum GPA was a 3.5 with a degree in operations management/supply chain from a large state school. I've been out of school for ~5 years. I have been employed by two F500 companies since graduation in positions of increasing responsibility. I could also be considered a LGBT diversity candidate if that's a thing?

Anything else I should be thinking about here?

Thank you.

Hi there - thanks for writing! While evening programs have lower GMAT average scores vs. full-time programs, you want to be comfortably in the target range, with preferably a Quant score of 45+. I think that upper 600s would be a good target, though a slightly lower score won't necessarily keep you out. Your undergrad performance is good, and it sounds like you have progressive work experience; plus, the diversity element can only help. So overall, I think these schools are in your strike zone if you get a solid GMAT score and in your applications, state your post-MBA goals clearly and make a case for why each program is a strong fit for you based on its specific curriculum and resources. Hope that helps! :)
