Hi experts,

I just took the GMAT and I'm wondering what schools I can realistically consider given my profile. I'm hoping for a top 10 school, but if my profile isn't up to snuff I would be open to waiting another year, taking the GMAT again to improve, etc.

GMAT: 730 (q49, v41) with IR-5 (AWA score TBD, but I expect/hope for a strong score)
Undergraduate GPA: 3.997/4.0
Demographics: 25yo white male

Professional experience: I've been with the same company since graduation (3.5 years). I work as a data analyst / market research consultant (lots of coding and client presentations) in the retail industry. I have been promoted twice.

Undergraduate study: Graduated 2014 with a double major in Business (Marketing + Supply Chain Management); minor in Writing
Undergraduate school: top 40 business school at a public university
Undergraduate profile: Very involved in multiple extra curricular activities with elected positions and inter-collegiate competition awards


Any tips you have on what range of schools I should consider and/or any particular gaps or weaknesses my application may have would be great to hear! Let me know if any other information would be helpful.

Well with a 4.0 and a 730 from a solid school you are definitely off to a fantastic start. Two promotions seems pretty good (although I would love to hear more detail about your job). And I would say, approximately somewhere in the top15 would make sense for you, with the top 5 being stretches.

And feel free to drop us a line for a more full-on Free Consultation: http://bit.ly/mbafcGC
