Dear Stacy,

I'm kindly asking to evaluate my profile since I don't know wether it makes sense to apply or not.

Goal: Stanford.

About myself:
1. Male, Ukrainian, 31 y.o.
2. Employment overview:
- current: Danone, innovation manager
- before: Henkel, senior brand manager.
- before: P&G, junior brand manager, supply chain leader
3. Education:
- master of Transport technologies (full time, Ukrainian university)
- master of Marketing (part time in Ukraine, UK university in Ukraine).
4. GPA: 4.8 out of 5. Diploma with honors.
5. Extra curriculum:
- scientific publications and conferences in the university
- participation in charity organization (6 months) that helps children in need.
- squash, 4 years. Participation in amateur tournaments.
6. Career goal: consulting in FMCG sector
7. GMAT, The most interesting part :) since I can improve it.
- 690 (q48, v37)

I'm sure that I can reach 720, improving my math score. improvement of verbal can be tricky.

I want to apply in R3 this year. I can not postpone since I don't want to wait and I'm already admitted to one of the very cool schools in Europe.
However, I like Stanford because of its values and mission.

So please suggest whether I should apply in R3 provided that I'll improve my GMAT.

Thanks huge in advance!

Thanks for your post. In regards to applying to the final round of Stanford, we normally do not recommend candidates apply in the final round. This isn't to say you will not be accepted, however all things being equal a candidate has a better chance in the 1st or 2nd round.

In regards to your GMAT score, we recommend that if a person believes they can improve their score by 30+ points, that they re-take the exam. The reason is that your highest score is self-reported on your application, so admissions teams will focus on your best score.

If you decide to take the test again, we provide free GMAT advice here:

We also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here:
