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!

hi chocopie12, happy to help evaluate your profile below...
Female/Asian American/29
GMAT: 690 (Q47 V38 - 2nd attempt)
GPA: 2.8 (University of California - Business Admin) This hurts a bit... but no one point is everything. Consider examples of how you have excelled academically in courses since college or in other work trainings.
WE: Mostly brand marketing in consumer products in the entertainment (think Warner Bros., Disney etc) and toy industry (ex: Hasbro, Mattel etc)Some good work experience
Target Schools: Wisconsin Madison, Emory Goizueta, Indiana Kelley, Washington Olin This is a good list- I love Wisconsin for marketing- be aware that they are facing some issues in considering to keep program open- but it looks like they are commiting to keep it open and I think they could be the best place for you.
Post MBA: Brand Marketing for CPG company (P&G, Johnson & Johnson, Kraft, etc)

Knowing that my profile is weak all over, I think you are being too hard on yourself... work experience looks really interesting, 690 is not "weak" nor "strong" but solid!is it worth taking the GMAT again to make up for the low GPA? Taking the GMAT again and upping it just a bit more is the best way to counter the lower GPA. Also, is there a reason why the GPA is lower? If so,
without making excuses, consider how you might explain the context of this in an optional essay.

Should I target some other schools? You might add Carlson
https://carlsonschool.umn.edu/degrees/m ... /marketing and also look at Cox (SMU): http://www.smu.edu/Cox/CurrentStudents/ ... entrations and if you can inch up the GMAT just a tad more consider also looking at UT Austin and Fuqua and also Kenan-Flagler. You might also look at Babson.
