Hi, I am currently 24 years, female, south asian. If I went in 2018, I'd be 26 by then.

Work experience: I worked for a big 4 consulting firm in federal technology for two years, and now work for a well known political news/media company in Corporate Strategy and Development (we don't swing left or right, if that matters). By the time I apply, I'd have worked at the news org for over 1 year. Total 3 years experience before applying, about 4 years before attending.
Undergrad stats: 3.75 GPA, business degree, state school in NJ. Graduated in the top 10% at least and got recognition for that.

What GMAT scores would I need to get into a top 10 school? What would I need to do to get any scholarships (if possible) for a top 20 school? Any advice is really helpful, because I don't have a ton of money and would need to take on the full cost of schooling in debt.

Based on some preliminary practice, I'm confident I can pull off at least a 700, but I feel like I will need much higher than that to even get a chance at money.
If it matters, I'd probably want to continue doing corporate strategy and development out of college, but might want to switch to a different organization type and my overall goal is to build my network and refine my thinking.

Any advice would be helpful, thanks!

Hi there,

Thanks for sharing your background with us. You have a great GPA which is a strong start for any top tier program. For top 10 schools, you should look at aiming for a 720-740, and if you want a scholarship at a top 20 program, I'd seek secure a 730+.

Your work experience is quite intriguing, and I'm sure you're doing a lot of great things there. It's not ideal to discuss these in forums, but a couple things missing from this discussion are your leadership capacity and your involvement. These are big factors that help you stand out from the crowd, especially when we consider you for top 10 programs. Further, anything you can do to help refine your goals will help the AdComm formulate an opinion that you will do big things after business school.

Hope this information helps. If you'd like to talk more about which schools make sense for you or how we can help you craft your story, we'd love to chat. Just sign up for a free consultation below. In the meantime, feel free to check out some of our free resources as you prepare your R1 applications.
