Work History: Worked 4 1/2 years at Big 4 Accounting Firm for the crisis and recovery consulting practice
Test Scores: GMAT 730 Q50 V39
Education: Top 20 School GPA 3.2
Career Goal: Want to move into a business development/strategy role in a growing company (have experience in pharma space and would like to work after MBA in this space). After industry experience, want to return to consulting with a focus on the industry.

Thanks for sharing your profile. You are coming from an overrepresented group in b-school admissions, which makes things a bit more competitive for you. You have a good profile with a strong GMAT, competitive work experience and for the top schools what will represent a below avg GPA. You have enough good in your profile to help you out here, so most like you will fall within the top 15 programs, leaning closer to the bottom end here. Depending on the quality of your essays and application you may be able to scale up a bit

Thank you for your time in responding to my request. A couple of follow up questions: 1. Do you think there are specific schools that my profile would be a good fit/match the class profile (as far as career goals and below average GPA)? 2. Would I have better success applying to part time programs in the top 10?

Also at the bottom end of the top 15, are there schools I should hesitate to apply to because of a below average GPA?

Take a look at Fuqua, Cornell, Yale and UNC
2. Would I have better success applying to part time programs in the top 10?
I think a FT MBA makes more sense for you given your career goals and age, so I would stick with FT programs unless something is pulling you to that side of the fence

Given the range discussed above, no need to exclude any specific schools, your lower GPA is the reason you are looking in that range less about specific schools
