Hello I am looking at applying to Business school this fall and wanted to see if my profile lined up with the schools I am looking at applying to.

GMAT: 640 (taking a course right now that guarantees 70 point increase so hopefully score will be 710+)
GPA: 3.0
Major: Marketing Management
Minor: Management
Native American wanting to apply through the Consortium
Schools applying to through the Consortium: Tuck, Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Indiana, University of Texas
Others: Penn State

Work Experience
I work for a non profit that primarily works with college students. I develop students in leadership, character, and faith. I lead leadership studies for specific fraternities on campus for their top members challenging them and helping them make a positive impact on their organization. I also do consulting for the Executive board, observing there meetings, identifying potential problems, and coach them on communication, critical thinking, and offering solutions. I do one on one mentoring with leaders and provide coaching and training on decision making, character, and leadership. I coordinate a weekly meeting of 100-200 college students each week and speak at each weekly meeting. I also host our national conference where I am speaking to 5,000 college students in attendance with over 17,000 more watching online. Hosting includes introducing speakers, on stage interviews, and conveying information. I do a lot of public speaking where I develop and convey curriculum on recruiting, character, leadership, personal development and others. I fundraise for our non profit personally bringing in $75,000 annually and coach and provide training for a group of fundraisers that brings in a total amount of $350,000 annually. I have recently been promoted to oppositions director where I over see staff providing them with training and development, evaluating systems, and providing feedback. I have lead a team of 12 college students in an international cultural exchange to India and Taiwan for one summer. We were there to understand culture through surveys and experience another culture by building relationships with local college students who invited us into their home and took us to see historical monuments, temples ect..

I am interviewing with a non profit called SCORE that does consulting work for non profits and small start ups.

If you have any thoughts on where I am lacking or thinking I mention something that is not worth mentioning please provide feedback. Thank you!

I think you have a strong background - as a Native American you are coming from a very unique demographic & you've got some great leadership experience at work. Ideally you will want to at least hit 700 for the GMAT - the higher the better, especially since your undergrad GPA is on the low end. Your post-MBA goals will also be critical to ensuring a strong profile that stands out - and since your "why MBA/why our school" argument rests on those. All in all though you definitely have the making of a strong profile as a non-traditional applicant & you can use the fact that you are non-traditional to your advantage. If you'd like any help thinking through your strategy & your story definitely reach out to us. Claudia can set you up with a free consultation with one of our MBA consultants. You can reach her at!
