Got a 630 (Q40 V36) in the gmat. I want to start my MBA in 2015.

I work for a top tier Investment Bank, in the shared services division, it is a consulting group inside the bank, project-management based. I've been working for 2 years now.

I am from Brazil, and was brought up in Brazil. Studied in Brazil elementary and high schools. Graduate from Villanova University in PA, with a 3.37 GPA (Major: 3.6)

I also studied abroad in the London School of Economics, graduating summer with A grade.

I have European citizenship.

Volunteer Experience: I volunteer since young age, but started doing it more often in college.
Fund raised 25,000 dollars for a high school in Costa Rica
I have constantly volunteered at New York City Harvest and I am a Advisory Council Member for the "International College & University Consortium".
I am a member of Toastmaster and hold an executive position in the club.
I have tutored Portuguese for 4 years now.

I want to apply to US or Euoprean schools in the top 20.

Being from Brazil will be an advantage, since there are fewer applicants from your country to US b-schools than other countries abroad. As an "under-represented" country, your perspective will be valued in the classroom. Particualrly since your education was in the US, you have a very broad view of markets and the impact they have on the global economy. Your work experience is very much from a feeder category as well, so it won't be a stretch in the slightest for them to consider you prepared for b-school. The problem is with your GMAT score. In order to be competitive as an international student at a top school in the US or in Europe, you will need to bring your score up closer to these schools' range of accepted applicants. Particularly your quant score will be frowned upon (ideally you would be hitting 80th percentile in quant). Without this, you will be lowering your odds tremendously vs. other international applicants with whom you will be competing. Reach out to us via telephone to discuss in more detail if you wish.
