Hi,

I am looking at applying for MBA programs in the next 1-2 years, but I am still unsure of which schools would be the best fits given my credentials. My profile is below, and any assistance with target schools would be greatly appreciated!

3.98 GPA / regional university (2nd tier below flagship state university)
740 GMAT
2 years abroad teaching English (gained fluency in language while abroad)
Passed CFA level 3
2 years at a boutique M&A firm (1.5 years analyst, .5 years associate)
Board member at local non-profit
Working to get involved with local alumni association (hoping for VP role)
Nationality: White male

As I get prepared, are there any other things that could help bolster my resume? What schools do you think would be good fits for my application?



Thanks!

So there's lots to like here- but the bigger question in terms of thinking about schools is what do you want to do post MBA? Do you want to stay in M&A? move to tech? This all impacts which schools. I certainly can see you being competitive in top programs with your GMAT, work and gpa. In terms of resume- think about how you can show impact- and that is at work and in extracurriculars. We do offer a pre-application early edge program where we work directly with clients who are a year or two out from MBA to make sure they develop the right extracurriculars and hone their story to be ready to apply when the time comes. We can do a free consult with you to tell you how the program works- here is the link to do that: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/

Thanks!
