Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out and sharing your profile! Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the schools you’re targeting are realistic. Your GMAT and academic track record are competitive for programs such as USC Marshall, Rice (Jones), Foster, etc. Where I would advise you to focus in your applications is on marketing your work experience. Demonstrating that you are multi-faceted (i.e. “interesting”) and have strong inter-personal and teamwork skills will be key for an applicant like you that comes from a process-oriented background such as accounting. Bonus points for any initiatives you took outside the scope of your responsibilities – for example, maybe you proposed a creative solution to a challenge you faced with a client. Another huge opportunity you have to show how “interesting” you are is through your extra-curriculars. Those seem to be a bit light for you since college – and if you’re applying for round 2 you really don’t have time to change those – but highlighting other ways you’ve gotten involved through sports or perhaps events through work would be an asset to your application.

Lastly, clear and ambitious career goals are important to any successful MBA application. You don’t mention what your career goals are for post-MBA but thinking through how those relate to your prior work experience and why you need an MBA will also be important.

Best of luck to you! If you’d like help pulling your essays together for the impending deadlines, please let us know. We offer a free 30-minute consultation so you can determine whether or not it’s a good fit before you commit :)
