Hi, and thanks for writing! It sounds like you have good work experience based on what you've written, although you're a bit on the earlier end for applicants, and good collegiate extracurricular involvement. Are you currently involved in any activities outside of work?

I think your target schools make sense given your profile and academics - I would also add UW Foster to the list of schools. As a reach, look at McCombs as well.

Hope that helps a bit! :)

Hi
Thank you for the prompt reply.

Regarding your question, outside I do a little bit of NGO work.Thats it.
I don't get much time now.
I was concerned about my GMAT.
690 might on the lower end, and since scholarships are also a priority I wanted to get a fresh perspective.
Should I try to get 730/740 before R2 deadlines and apply then or should I go for it now?

Thank you for mentioning Foster. I had it on my shortlist.

Hi again - scholarships are very selective and they are based on the merit of application, including GMAT. So, if that is your priority, you'll definitely want to raise that GMAT score, even if that means applying next year instead (since R3 is not recommended). Hope that helps!
