2) GMAT.
710 48Q/39V

3) College info:
3.37 GPA at a top 20 University (Double Major in Economics and Language, Minor in History). Worked 12-15 hours/week throughout my tenure there.
Placed out of college calculus with AP classes (both AB and BC). Took business statistics and econometrics for my major.

4.) Significant College Exp
Internship working on small-mid sized international project financing transactions. Worked on feasibility studies and presentations to secure financing ranging from 20-50mm (renewable energy and hospitality deals)

Worked abroad for one month (in country whose language I studied), helping a new startup implement marketing strategies to increase sales of products. Assisted in planning of logistics to efficiently transport products in a developing market with limited transportation and shipping options.

Fraternity Social Chair-Managed budget of roughly $20k.

Worked for Law School and Office of the General Council part time. Also tutored high school student for all four years.

Investors club, Entrepreneur Club, Multiple Language Clubs

Target Schools:
Wharton (specifically Lauder Program), Columbia, Stern, Ross
Double legacy at UPenn (Father WG, Mother BBA and Penn Grad School)

Aspirations post-MBA: Go back into international project finance to facilitate deals in emerging and developing markets. My father does this for a living, although I am not certain I am going to work there post-grad. Looking to add a much greater international focus to my career (very limited at this point in time), hence why Lauder is my first choice. I am a heritage speaker in the language program for which I am applying, so I should have an adequate skill level for their OPI interview.

Thanks for your posting.

To be direct, your undergraduate GPA is a bit low for most of the programs that you are targeting. This does not mean that you will not be accepted to these programs - but that all of your margin of error in this process has been used up. This means that you have to submit top quality applications - including essays, recommendations, interviews, etc. Even if one aspect of your application is mediocre, your chances decrease significantly.

As for Lauder, it is very competitive - and your chances there are less than 50%. Your chances are Columbia are better as the school is recuperating from some reputations issues. With a good application, your chances at Stern and Ross are good.

Good luck.
