Could you please let me know how much of a deal breaker my GMAT is? I feel my work experience and extracurriculars are on the stronger end. However, since I am an over represented demographic, I feel my score puts me at a disadvantage.

Thank you in advance for your time, help, and considerate response.

Hi, TopMBAHopeful34,

I don't think your GMAT is a deal breaker, but you're right to recognize that as an applicant in a popular category, you are likely to face tough competition. The schools evaluate applicants along a number of lenses. It's hard to say from the brief description above how you might fare, but you have some good things working in your favor. A high profile rotational program with great performance (and the recommendations to match) will help, as will your international experience. Of course, the schools will be looking for more than just exposure but also impact, so be sure to highlight what you accomplished. The same will be true of your extracurriculars: make sure that you're still contributing to the community (you don't want to only show activities from college), and seek leadership and/or impact with your work there.

Beyond that, the challenge will be to think deeply and execute well along all the different elements of the applications. The essays will be particularly important, as will your recommendations, for setting you apart.

Hope this was somewhat helpful! If you want to go a bit deeper into your profile, set up a consultation with one of us. We'd be happy to discuss it in more detail! Thanks so much for posting.
