Hello everyone,

I am planning on admissions for 2018.


I am an Ecuadorian-American (born and raised in Ecuador) and current student at the Kelley School of Business Indiana University, pursuing my Bachelors of Science in Finance. I am in my final year(4th-year 1st semester).
I interned at Barclays (Sales and Trading) in New York City this summer.
GPA: 3.72 (4.0 Major GPA)
GMAT: 590 (I know, it is my weak point. I attended high school in Ecuador)
I have three very strong recommendations:
- The first from a former head of the Ecuadorian Central Bank and Minister of Finance
- The second from a current Hedge Fund Partner in NYC
- The third from a Finance professor at Kelley (Former #1 ranked Healthcare research analyst, worked for: UBS, Credit Suisse)
I have solid community service (recognition from Ecuadorean government for earthquake relief efforts)

I am considering following programs (not my final list):

Washington U MSF
UT Austin
Harvard 2+2
Booth MBA
NYU MBA
John Hopkins MSF
LSE MSF
Bentley MSF
Vanderbilt MSF
Stanford MBA
Wharton MBA

Please assess my chances, I'm open to any suggestions and to considering other programs.


Thank You.

Thank You.

Well, unless you get a higher GMAT, I would say you don't really have much chances at more or less any of the schools you proposed. If you want to apply to the best programs, you have to do so with the best scores. There's no real way around this...

So think about when and how you can retake, and take the time to improve your score. It's worth it!!

Best,
