Hi,

I applied to a couple part time programs in the LA area but I recently retook the GMAT and would like to get an idea on my application if I decide to not go part time and reapply full time next year to matriculate Fall 2015.

Asian American Male, 26 y/o
Graduated from a top 10 liberal arts college with a 2.9 GPA in Economics
GMAT 700 (48Q, 37V, 8IR)

Work Experience:
Over one year as a Project Manager at a small ($200m in rev) liquidation and valuation firm. Managed project teams that consisted from 2-10 people. Laid off due to bad economy.
Worked 1 year at a mid-market investment bank (Jefferies) as an accounting clerk.
Worked 2 years at a Fortune 500 real estate company as an accountant. Promoted last year. Could get another promotion before I apply in fall 2014.

Extracurricular:
Pretty much no existent. I volunteered as a big brother about 3 years ago and did that for a year where I mentored a child. I sign up to read to elementary school aged kids once every few months.

I plan on applying R1 and R2. Post MBA plan is to go into either consulting or corp finance.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile! I am targeting schools ranked in the 20s and late teens (USC, Georgetown, Texas, Rice, etc.) and was wondering how realistic that is.

You should have a good shot at those schools and might even consider reaching for Marshall, or even Anderson. You have relevant experience with a leadership component to boot, a top 10 UG record (albeit lower GPA) and a top 10% GMAT score. As long as you can forge a compelling post MBA plan which will leverage your career achievements, you will bode well in the application process at your target list and possibly even with your reach schools. The key will be in the passionate conveyance of your plan and why you want the MBA.
