I was hoping you could provide some insight on my profile. I would like to get an idea of what schools I should consider applying to. Schools on my shortlist are: UCLA, McCombs, Duke, Foster, Owen. This is a very fluid list and willing so add/delete based on recs.

25 year old White Male
BBA Finance and Management from a probably not well known state uni: 4.0 GPA
GMAT: 650 (Q 44, V36)
WE : Will have 4 years at Merrill Lynch as a financial advisor and analyst for two Global Institutional Consulting teams
Community : Serve on the Board of Directors for three organizations: Big Brothers Big Sisters of NM, BBBS Foundation, and the 20-30 Club (a childrens charity non-profit).
Post MBA goals - Transition to work in either marketing or consulting, haven't decided exactly what yet (but I will by applications).

Thank you!

Hi NJackson40, thanks for reaching out- will answer below.
25 year old White Male
BBA Finance and Management from a probably not well known state uni: 4.0 GPAStill- schools will like that 4.0 because it will help their overall gpa avg!
GMAT: 650 (Q 44, V36) great that you have the gpa- as the GMAT score is on low side for these schools-
consider doing some more coaching and retake if you can

WE : Will have 4 years at Merrill Lynch as a financial advisor and analyst for two Global Institutional Consulting teams
Community : Serve on the Board of Directors for three organizations: Big Brothers Big Sisters of NM, BBBS Foundation, and the 20-30 Club (a childrens charity non-profit). excellent
Post MBA goals - Transition to work in either marketing or consulting, haven't decided exactly what yet (but I will by applications). certainly you can make the case that after advising- you want to get more involved in running a business- which might be the marketing or product management route or that you want to consult on a wider range of issues- if you go consulting route. I think for this GMAT score, Owen is the best fit; might also look at Georgetown for the social enterprise given your interest in giving back, also look at Kelley, Mendoza, Emory
We'd love to talk about your situation in more detail- and to do that reach out for a free consult at this link: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/


Thank you!

Hello, thank you for answering! I will be retaking the GMAT in about a month. I feel confident I can bump into the 670-700 range with a really devoted extra month of study. If I could get into that range with most of the improvement coming on the math side, do you think that would open McCombs back up? I will definitely look into the other programs you listed as well. How important are community aspects for an application? This is obviously a strong point for me from the board work, but know that that will be weighed much lower than my currently low GMAT score.
