Hello everyone!
I have been searching the internet for stats about acceptance rates, average test scores, etc for Chicago Booth & Kellogg’s part time programs. I am targeting their weekend/evening option.

I’m really just trying to gauge my chances of acceptance.

I have 2 years of working experience at Accenture and I have been promoted twice. My gmat is a 640. Undergrad GPA of 3.17 in marketing from a top 100 business school.

What do you all think as far as my chances... Also, I am a good interviewer and I’ve started a few small businesses, but nothing huge.

What is the Gmat split (Quant/Verbal score) ?

You need at least another 3-5 years of experience and a higher GMAT. A score above 670 is safe.

They value experience more than the raw scores in these part time programs. So, you will clearly be an outlier, and especially with a a score of 640 and low GPA, it’s unclear what you will add to the culture and class experience there.
There’s nothing stopping you from giving it a shot. So, if you’re confident, give it a shot and try again in couple of years if it doesn’t work out this time.

Assuming a score of 670 or higher and a couple more years of quality work experience, do you think I can overcome my 3.17 GPA?

That should give a decent shot. Make sure to continue being stellar at your job and get a couple of good recommendations.

Also, work on getting that quant score to at least a 47 or 48. That should push your score up to 690, I think.

Awesome. That makes since. Also, I forgot to add that I have a Master’s degree in management from a Top 50 business school with a 3.76 GPA. Do you think this does anything for me? Not sure how much weight that carries, if any.

Thanks again for all of your help.

I think the 2 year s of work experience is what is going to look a bit shallow for the "traditional" FEMBA applicant profile. Are you planning to stay at Accenture after your MBA? or what is the driver to get it? My guess is you are trying to move industries or try to move up to MBB or ?

I would like to do strategy consulting eventually.

So I think Kellogg is a good fit in terms of my long term goals. But I am curious if they will value my work at Accenture as a more technical analyst with exposure to a few different industries in multiple cities.

I’m not sure what is attractive to top B-schools in terms of work experience and if brand names such as Accenture carry clout.

Thanks!

Accenture is definitely well known but also folks know that there is the sexy part of management consulting and the not-so-sexy technical/IT development arm. However, you will be judged on your performance and what you have done with your resources. Even if you got stuck in the most boring programming area (e.g. writing optimization software for a tire recycling plant in Brazil - that's as crazy as I could come up), the AdCom will evaluate what opportunities were available to you and how you have utilized them and leveraged them. If you have perhaps setup a Toast Masters branch while you were there, you took additional courses, and basically did not let it be a setback but continued developing and continued being the little engine that could (as opposed to just coasting with the flow), you should be in a good position. The mantra is often momentum, energy, initiative, leadership, etc. Basically they want to give admission opportunity to folks who can double, triple, or quadruple the ROI of an MBA as opposed to someone who just coasts. So don't feel you are stuck in any way if your current position/area is not machine learning or crypto or consulting to the Vatican. It's not what you have, but what you do with it.
