Hey lovemyself123

Thanks for getting in touch and providing your details. Firstly, I like your school list. It's a great "portfolio" of options from reach (Haas, Yale) to safe targets (Tepper, Cornell). If you can up your GMAT score, that would definitely be great. To maximize your chances, you definitely want to come in at higher than each school's GMAT average. For you, given your demographic, I'd like to 740+.

I'm not sure if you are currently in oil or if that was previously but it's a great industry for b-school. Audit can be tough sometimes though. So make sure your CV really highlights your leadership ability and business impact.

I hope that helps! Set up a free consultation with us for more!
