Hi Saz,

You have a good not great profile. And as you're already aware, your target schools seem a bit of a stretch. Your undergrad GPA seems pretty good, I wonder why then you scored so less on your GRE. Are you planning to take it again ?
How long did you freelance for? Must be around 6 months thereby implying a total of 4 years of work ex till you matriculate. Your work ex is pretty good. Your LGBT community involvement is good too. You should shortlist your schools based on your post MBA goals. It seems you're all over the map in targeting schools. But if you're considering Canada you may also apply to Ryerson, Degroote, Laurier, Schulich. I would be happy to schedule a free call to delve into this issue properly. Hope this helps.

Best,

And I agree that you may want to consider GRE or GMAT again. But in addition to comments above, I challenge you to not think in terms of "where can I get in" but rather what do I want to do post MBA and which schools have resources that help me get there. If you have a compelling reason why you are interested in a school and you can think about how you add value, you will get a better look even with slightly lower than average scores. So do your homework now- why do you want an MBA? What skills to you seek to enhance? To help you do what? Once you are clear on that- it is much easier to narrow down your school choices and to find a school that meets your needs and your admissions requirements. For example, with an interest in social impact you can think of Yale at the top end- but if your stats are not there- then Georgetown is also a great option to consider. So first look inside to what matters most to you and then we can narrow schools down once you have your reason WHY. For a free consult to explore this more- go to this link to sigh up:

Work Ex: 4.5 in Capital market IT firm
Designation: Consultant and Team lead
Even worked onshore in one of the top 100 investment bank in Europe for 3 months each in last two successive years.

Hi Andy,
You do have a good profile. I don't understand why you scored so low on your test. Unfortunately there's nothing you can do to go around GMAT. And with such low score you don't have any good options. Maybe you can look for an MS in finance that doesn't have a GMAT requirement ? Otherwise just look at 80-100 rankings and take your chances there. Good Luck !

Best,

Hi,
No problem at all. Both Hult and Rochester are good schools. You may also want to look at Thunderbird. You'll have to do the research yourself my friend and dig out schools that don't need a GMAT. I completely understand your situation, I was once in the exact same spot. If you're really into fashion you should look into MBA in design management or fashion management degree from milan.
