You definitely have a shot at it based on your stats! Keep in mind that there are lots of other important factors as well. Your goals are key since they are a way to set yourself apart & also since your argument for why you need the MBA/why xyz school hinges on your goals. Schools also want to see the impact and results you've driven at work as well as who you are as a person. The essay questions are becoming increasingly personal. All of these factors shape your unique value proposition - in other words they are all part of painting a picture of the unique contribution you will bring & are important to convincing the accomplice to admit YOU vs. another equally qualified applicant. But just based on what you shared here these schools are definitely in reach for you!

Hello Brit123

I guess your name could be Brittany :)

Being a female is going to be your advantage from diversification point of view in application pool.

GPA is fine, but GMAT rocks :clap: that will draw attention and your application will be considered most seriously at all schools in your application list.

I could provide you with GMAT averages for admitted students for all schools on your list individually, but there is no need, it is enough to say that highest average among them is around 730, that paints a picture how elite actually your score is.

Your working experience is very relevant and I suppose you will pursue Finance concentration based on all so far CFA levels passed, that really do count in your application.

Your extracurricular activities are also commendable.

I don't see a reason why all schools on your list would not accept you.

Just make sure you do convey message in your personal essay, how and why you are fit for particular school, from aspect of your goals and their culture and values etc.



Good Luck ! :cool:
