Good question - I would say somewhere in between a target and a stretch, mainly because you come from such a competitive demographic. Even though GMAT isn't everything, increasing it by 10+ points may help.

Thank you Nisha for your revert. Yes I am leading an initiative in pwc foundation.

I agree that the essay should reflect on how I am fit for Anderson. Given my current profile, would u call Anderson as a target school or as a stretch target for me?

Hi there, and thanks for writing! You have a strong GMAT, intriguing and progressive work experience, and good community involvement. Regarding post-MBA goals, can you clarify what you mean by "internalization/business development"?

To maximize your chances at Anderson, be sure to clarify what drives your career path and make a strong case for why Anderson is a good fit for you based on its culture and resources.

mirelark you have more than a strong shot here if you do the application well
Great GMAT, good fit with UCLA with startup experience in the fashion industry
people management, good, and the community service piece is great
also not sure what the goals are all about but would recommend you nail down the specific post mba job working for X employer
or solving X problem for X population....get specific

Thanks for your inputs mbaMissionNishaT and MBAPrepCoach, they are super helpful!
Clarifying my post-MBA goals, upon graduating I want to work with US-based businesses in their international expansion towards Brazil/LATAM, especially in the tech/social impact space. My ultimate career goal is to drive change in Brazil and tackle problems like access to education, and I believe I can do so while also generating value and profit for the companies that I work with. In my essays, I plan to explore what's driving this industry change for me and be specific about companies and initiatives.

I recommend that you get specific with the goals mirelark: what problem are you solving and for who?
example for successful HBS applicant: I plan to start a nonprofit that uses big data to stop child trafficking
if you want to drive change, what is the problem and how do you plan to solve it?

Hi there, and thanks for writing! Your academics are within the range for Anderson, although Top 15 programs are very competitive for Indian applicants so if you are able to tack on 10+ points, even better. It's great that you manage a team of 4 at work - if your work experience shows high impact, that will work in your favor. Extacurriculars are on the weaker side, but definitely show on your resume to the extent possible the contribution you've made in these activities. Best of luck!
