I am hoping someone could give me an idea of what to expect with my very unusual profile:

So right off the bat I graduated from University of Arizona in 2010 with a 2.4 GPA, (perfect 800 out of 800 math SAT) I failed some classes, withdrew a semester, it was a disaster.

Since then I have worked hard, attained my CFA, CAIA, work as an associate at S&P Global, and recently got a 710 on my GMAT (Q49-V36)

I got both of my supervisors S&P to write glowing recommendations and took time in my essays to try to weave together my story of hard work and ambition since I graduated. I'm retaking my GMAT in 2 weeks as I was testing at 730-720 so the 710 was disappointing. I had one official gmat test where I got a Q51 and one I got V42 so I think the opportunity to improve my score is there.

I am applying to NYU Stern full time, Columbia full time, and Wharton Executive (would like full time but I feel like I don't have a chance).

Does anyone think I have a shot here? Does anyone think I only have a chance if I improve my GMAT substantially?

Hi Wildcat4GMAT,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. You have a really interesting profile that I would like to learn more about. I do think you need a stronger GMAT score to counterbalance your GPA (average GPA is substantially higher). You are targetting top programs, so you will also need to address your low GPA in your applications. That said, your CFA and CAIA and experience will work in your favor. Be sure to address the reason you require an MBA in relation to your goals. I also recommend you widen your application reach, to ensure you have successful R2 results.

Happy to continue the conversation. If interested, please reach out to coordinate a call.

Good luck with your GMAT retake and R2 applications!
