Hello!
Thank you for evaluating my profile.

Female/Asian American/29
GMAT: 690 (Q47 V38 - 2nd attempt)
GPA: 2.8 (University of California - Business Admin)
WE: Mostly brand marketing in consumer products in the entertainment (think Warner Bros., Disney etc) and toy industry (ex: Hasbro, Mattel etc)
Target Schools: Wisconsin Madison, Emory Goizueta, Indiana Kelley, Washington Olin
Post MBA: Brand Marketing for CPG company (P&G, Johnson & Johnson, Kraft, etc)
EC: Business Fraternity Alumni Mentor

Knowing that my profile is weak all over, is it worth taking the GMAT again to make up for the low GPA?
Should I target some other schools?

Thanks for your help!

Hey there,
Well... for your target schools you should be about right. Although your GPA is a bit low. And it would be very very helpful for you to have a good reason or story as to WHY it is so low.

At the same time, a 690 is a bit of a borderline score, and there is no doubt that will even 20-30 more points it can make a whoooole world of difference.

Other than that, as far as the potential strengths and weaknesses of your profile, I don't yet have enough information about that. But do feel free to drop on by for a free consultation.
