Trying to solidify school selection. Any ideas would be helpful!

Info:
-White Female
-4 years of work experience at matriculation, consulting at big 4 accounting, 1 promo but have experience managing some on small projects. made some significant contributions to team during my time at the firm.
-GMAT 740 Q49 V41
-GPA 3.2 top 50 university majored in finance. GPA is low due to engineering classes taken my first year.
-solid volunteer experience, mostly mentoring at various organizations
-Post MBA industry: strategy consulting

Target schools: Yale, NYU, MIT, Kellogg, Duke, Darden, Columbia (all r2)

Do you think I could have a good chance at admission at at least one of these? My goal is to go this year rather than wait until next year.

Thanks.

Hey there,
Well what you have going for you in this short summary is your GMAT and being a female candidate.

Yet, you are aiming for the top. So just "working for Big 4" is not an exciting enough story. what I am wondering is: what is unique about your profile? What is your story? Why are you applying to B-school? And why now? And where did you volunteer? And what other hobbies, ECs and other things do you do?

It's more about just a test score, and if you wish to apply to these schools it should be possible, but with a very solid and exciting story.



Thanks.
