Hi there,

Thanks for sharing your information! Your academic profile is below average for top 15 programs. Some programs between 15-20 may fit, but realistically, you're looking at schools in the top 20-30 for aligned programs. Your work experience sounds like you should have a lot of strong examples/anecdotes for leadership and impact. What type of involvement (in your community/extra curriculars) have you been a part of since you graduated UG?

Hope this information helps. Feel free to check out our free resources to get you started. Best of luck this season!

Thank you @@CriticalSquare,

To be frank, I was realistically aiming at programs between 15-25 only.

How does Kelley, Vandy, Georgia Tech Scheller and Boston Uni Questrom sound as options for me? Too unrealistic or I should aim for better colleges? Which do you think would be my best bet?

I'm planning to specialise in Marketing.

Thank you in advance :)

Hi there,

Those schools are reasonable and I encourage you to apply. Note that GT would be the stretch out of that group. Hope this helps and best of luck!
