Hello,

Can you please have a quick look and let me know what chances do I have

Planning to do my MBA in 2019

- Male, Indian, 25 yo
- Undergraduate from Mumbai University (B.com)
- I got a 80% (Not sure what the GPA would be, but I guess it should be 3+ out of 4) - It might be a bit low. I was doing my CA & CFA along with my undergrad.
- CFA Charterholder (U.S.A)
- Chartered Accountant (I.C.A.I, India)
- Diploma in IFRS (A.C.C.A)
- GMAT: 700

Work Experience:

- Audit Assistant (Internship) for Financial Sector Industries like Banks, AMCs & Mutual Funds
* 3 years ( 2011 - 2014 )
* From BDO International

- Product Control Analyst for Fixed Income Structured Products
* 2 Years 8 Months (2014 - 2017)
* Got promoted to Associate
* From Morgan Stanley
* Global Exposure (Speaking daily with Counterparts & Traders from Hong Kong, EMEA & Tokyo)

- 2nd Year Analyst in Structural Interest Rate & Mortgage Risk Management (Treasury)
* 3 months so far (current employment)
* From JP Morgan

Extracurriculars:
* 1 year working at a NGO focused on children education

Post MBA objective:
* Investment Banking
* Management Consulting

Business Schools
* Chicago Booth
* Ross
* Tuck
* Duke
* UVA Darden

Can you please advice me if I should aim lower? and just tell me how i fair for each of the above schools
Also, will my CFA & CA be taken into consideration by Universities ? As doing those 2 courses at the same time with my Undergrad is what costed me my GPA

Great that you are thinking ahead and there is time to improve-
The 700 GMAT and then a non rock star GPA add up to a big hill to climb.[color=#2e3192]

I would broaden a bit- I see Duke and maybe UVA as your best odds of the bunch and those are tough odds still. For Fuqua apply in the earliest round you can which is the Sept deadline. And look at Kelley, UNC Kenan-Flagler, Emory and Owen too. And I encourage you to sign up for our Early edge program as we can help you address your weaknesses NOW and help you not have those weaknesses by the time you apply.
