Hello,

I'm considering a part time MBA. Here's my background:

Work experience: 2.5 years as a Business Analyst. I spent some time at a fintech startup and now I work at a top 20 health insurance company. Will have 3 years by the time I apply.
Female and Indian
GMAT: 660.
GPA: 3.18/ 4. I did have an academic probation. I got accepted into a direct Physical Therapy grad program (top 35) out of high school. Over time, it was something that I was not motivated in and I was also dealing with personal issues (death in family). This led to my poor grades. I believe I only got 3 C's and D's for my grad classes. The rest 10 grad classes I took were A's and B's.
Volunteer: I am the Director of Community Development at an organization (youngest member). I tutor kids at a tutoring center (I do get paid). At the tutoring center, I have also helped the center director with marketing efforts resulting in 30% increase in enrollments. Lastly, I help out with events at American Lung Association.
Possible Recommendations: Director at my current company, Supervisor at my current company, Director of the volunteer organization, and Booth alum.
Why I want MBA? Since I am a Business Analyst, I would like to use my MBA to transition more into a consulting role either at my current company or elsewhere.
Target Schools: Booth Chicago Business Fellows (this is my top and honestly, I really want to get my MBA from here). I also have part time Kellogg, part time Loyola, part time Carnegie Mellon Tepper, and part time NYU Stern.

I think my biggest concern is the academic probation. How do I go about in addressing that? Since I am doing part time and I fit within the range for Booth's GMAT and GPA, is my profile ok?

I would appreciate any help/advice. Thank you!

Hi there -
Thanks for reaching out for a free evaluation. In lieu of writing a lengthy reply, I'd rather we connect via Skype/phone so we may have a real dialogue and you can ask me questions as I give you an assessment. Additionally, I will be able to offer you a much more robust assessment if I am able to ask you more questions. If doing a free consult via skype/phone interests you, please contact me directly at kathrynlucas@squareoneprep.com.

I look forward to hearing from and speaking with you soon. Thanks again for reaching out.
