Hi, please help to evaluate my chance to get accepted into my target schools!

Targeted program: Master in accounting - apply for fall 2017
Targeted schools: Jindal school of management (UT Dallas), Bauer college of business (UH), Baylor university!

My profile: (female - 26 years old)
Undergrad: major in finance - gpa: 7.8/10
WE: 3 years in non-profit government sector as project assistant in energy project (not relevant to my applying major)
1,5 years as accountant for my dad's business
GMAT: 660 (Q:48, V:34, IR:7, AWA:5)

Iam struggling with the essay because it is quite hard to justify why i i want to come back to accounting/finance field after working in non profit sector. (my intention is to move to finance department of non-profit/international organization after graduation), and should i retake my gmat to increase my chance?

Regards,
Admission Consultant

Thank you for your post. While a higher GMAT will always help you, I don't think you need to retake the exam to target those schools. If you want help developing your story, feel free to reach out and we can chat about how I can support you. You do want your story to be convincing. From what I see here, this is a pretty good profile to target these programs but let's explore it further. scott@personalmbacoach.com

Best,
Scott

Hi trangphamthuy91,

Relax! There is always a reasonable explanation to everything, and with little effort, you can justify your choices.

Now, addressing things further, if you CAN take the GMAT again and score better, nothing like it.

If you can't, there's still lots of ways of achieving what you want.

Please feel free to get in touch with us to refine and discuss your story further. Drop in a mail on the address below. Don't forget to send your resume!

Cheers!

I think certainly your odds of presenting as a stronger candidate go up with a higher GMAT but you look like you might be pretty competitive even now with the scores you have.

Retaking the GMAT is never a bad idea if you want to maximize your chances of admission but I don’t see it as a must in your case. Instead, it will come down to your application and essays so make those a priority, even if you are struggling a bit. Many have been in that exact situation in the past and overcome that challenge so you can too! Feel free to be in touch if you are considering getting professional assistance with that part of course.

Good luck!
