Hello all,

I was hoping you could evaluate my profile and help me decide where to apply. My current rough list of target schools is: Duke, UT Austin, Foster, Vanderbilt, Michigan.
Profile:
- White male, 26
- Work at Merrill Lynch as an advisor and analyst for a Global Institutional Consulting and Private Banking team
- GMAT: 680 44/38 (this is a retake and improvement from 650 and honestly about the best I think I can do right now)
- Undergrad BBA double major in Finance and Management 4.0 from a state school
- Solid recommendations
- Volunteer work: on the board of directors of three non-profits (one very large well known NP) and the VP of Development for one of the boards
- Want to transition to a role in either Marketing or Consulting (I have previous marketing and sales experience from a company I started and sold in college).
- First generation college student (don't know if that is actually useful or not).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Is my school list good? To many stretches? Not a legitimate stretch included?

Thank you in advance,

Thanks for sharing your profile. I think your school list is solid for you. Now given your GMAT which is sub 700 a few of these will be stretch schools. More specifically, I would say Ross and Duke will be stretches for you with the rest being more closer to a fit. Nothing wrong with a few stretch schools in your target school list. Rest of your profile is solid and if you can put together a good application you should be good shape
