Hi,

Age:27
Undergrad: Bachelors of Economics and Political Science (small liberal arts college)
GPA: 3.56
Nationality: United States
Gmat: 720; 47Q42V; 5.5AW; 7IR

Work Exp: 60 months
Field: Commercial Lending; Finance; Regional banks in Pittsburgh

I work at a midsize regional Bank in Pittsburgh, doing commercial real estate loan underwriting. I also own and manage residential real estate myself. I own four affordable housing properties , with a total of 16 units. I also volunteer as Treasurer on the Board for a 501c3 Young Professional organization.

My goal is to pursue an MBA so that I can work in a top consulting firm (preferably in real estate, working with REITS) so that I can learn the specifics of the business. After 5+ years of that, I plan to take my knowledge and connections to form my own REIT that focuses on affordable housing.

My plan is to begin my MBA in the Fall of 2019. I would like to attend the best MBA program I can get into.

Any suggestions regarding my profile as to which MBAs (M7 if possible) I should apply for in R1?

Thank you,
Tony

Hi Tony,
Thank you for your post.
From what I can see, you have a strong profile. Your stats (GPA/GMAT) are almost in line with the averages of the M7 schools; you have 5 years of good work experience (although you didn't provide detail on your accomplishments there); and it is good to see that you have some extracurricular experience as a treasurer.
That being said, the top schools are extremely competitive and they simply do not have room to accept every strong profile they see. I suggest applying to two M7 schools, two schools in the top 12 or so, and one to two more just outside of that. All of these top schools will have solid recruiting opportunities for consulting.
If you would like to have someone review your full profile and resume (and chat with a fellow Pittsburgher!), feel free to sign up with me for a free consultation.
Good luck!
