Hey guys,

I would love an eval for M7 (particularly Booth, Wharton, Stanford, HBS)
Background info:
Midwestern white male. 27 Years old.

Test scores:
- GMAT: 710 (Q 47, V 41). *The quant score is my biggest concern.


Academic info:
- Degree: BA in mathematics and economics (double major) in 2012.
- University: Small non-target liberal arts school in Ohio (think Kenyon, Denison).
- GPA: 3.7/4.0
- 4 year member of varsity track and cross country teams in undergrad and was awarded PMA (positive mental attitude) award - only individual award presented each season
- Awards: Was member of winning team at URochester's case study competition for undergrads

Work experience:
- 2 years at incredibly large US financial regulator in hybrid finance/IT role.
- 6 months in Fortune 20 healthcare company's FP&A division working on sales deal modeling.
- Most recently: 2 years on investment team at young higher-end venture capital firm with over $400M AUM (sourcing, diligence and metrics-based advising)


I'm more concerned around the relatively weak quant score (65th percentile) than my professional background but am curious about what you would flag or look for specifically?
I am going to apply regardless and have strong recommendations but want to know what, off of this brief bit of knowledge, you would be asking come interview time?

I don't think you will get any specific questions on your GMAT quant- if asked- you say that you have done very well in math and quant- citing your strong performance in academics and work- don't let that take away your confidence- I see some great things here- and the kicker will be HOW you present yourself.

If you are looking to give yourself the best odds- then apply in a R1 cycle and I would look to start working with an admissions firm as early as May to prep for next year R1- I see no reason why you cannot do M7 if you put a stellar application together.
