Thank you in advance for your help! I am a Chinese American female, age 25 looking to apply to the following schools: Kellogg, Johnson (dual program with MILR), USC, UCLA, UC Berkeley

GPA: 3.75 at University of Southern California
GMAT: 710

Work Experience:
2.5 years in retail management
-no promotions but took on responsibility as district trainer in my second year and trained other leaders
-also was invited to annual leadership meeting for those who show high potential (out of 7 leaders in our district, I was the only one invited)
-consistently led team to top 5 in meeting our metrics out of 62 teams in our group
-recruited over 50 people every year for seasonal hires
-leadership: led 4 shift leaders and 50 team members
.5 year in entry level recruiting
-was interested in recruiting and HR from previous job and decided to make a career switch into recruiting
-voted top employer who consistently look for ways to improve processes

Extracurricular:
-run marathons and actively participates in company and local running clubs
-was a tour guide and student ambassador in undergrad

Goals post MBA:
-looking to obtain a HR management role

My top schools are Kellogg, Cornell, and Berkeley but not sure what my chances are. Also I'm curious to ask if I should retake my GMAT? Since my work experience doesn't show any quantitative skills, I'm assuming my GMAT score is on the lower side. It would be my third time taking the test if I were to retake it.

Hi @GMATKay22, thanks for reaching out for a profile review- happy to help! See my notes below.
GPA: 3.75 at University of Southern California impressive!
GMAT: 710 This- while generally a great score- may not be as great if your Citizenship is from China. However if you are a US citizen this will go far for you.

Work Experience:
2.5 years in retail management if you applying for next yr r1 2018 you will have even more experience- and that will add- when you think about your experience- think not just about year- but as you do below- capture the impact you have had
-no promotions but took on responsibility as district trainer in my second year and trained other leaders
-also was invited to annual leadership meeting for those who show high potential (out of 7 leaders in our district, I was the only one invited)
-consistently led team to top 5 in meeting our metrics out of 62 teams in our group
-recruited over 50 people every year for seasonal hires
-leadership: led 4 shift leaders and 50 team members
.5 year in entry level recruiting

For Kellogg and Haas an even higher GMAT could help so if you think you can improve and you have the time-- which if you apply r1 2018 you have all spring and summer-- I would suggest that giving it another go could help. I also encourage you to reach out to all these schools this spring to learn more about each school while students are on campus. Kellogg hosts a women's event in May that would be great to attend if you can. I also encourage you to reach out to club officers now and find out what they are doing- so you might have more insight how you can add value if you were to become a student.
If you want to work with us now in the spring- we can give you some ideas of how to be an even stronger candidate so that by the time you apply in the fall you really are ready. To look into this- I suggest a free consult with us to learn more-- click on this link to set up a free consult: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/
