Hi - I just took the GMAT and was hoping to get your thoughts on which schools to apply to for round 2 this year. A few facts:

GPA & Degree: 3.9+, Accounting (also have a Master's of Accounting with a 3.9+ GPA), both from a large state school
GMAT: 730 (IR-8, Q-47, V-44)
Work Experience: Tax Manager with a big 4 firm (5 years experience). Broad experience managing people, tax compliance/consulting engagements, and financial statement audits. Also involved as a firm instructor and recruiter. Promoted early to manager.

I'm looking to recruit for an IB associate position at a BB from an MBA program. Would you mind providing your thoughts as to which schools make sense given my stats and goals? Any interesting points that couldn't easily be found on the internet would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there! Looks like you have solid academics and a strong work profile. A few questions so that I can tailor my recos a bit more:

- Is NYC your target geography (assuming it is, since you want to work in IB)
- Are you involved in any extracurriculars/community activities?
- What is your preferred class size and environment (urban/rural)?
- Any thoughts on the type of student culture you seek?

Thanks!

I appreciate your time, I responded next to your questions.

- Is NYC your target geography (assuming it is, since you want to work in IB) Response: Yes, that would be ideal - though would be open to Chicago as well.
- Are you involved in any extracurriculars/community activities? Response: Not in a community service sense, but more so within my firm. For example, I regularly instruct at formal technical trainings and I am a campus recruiting lead (seeking out candidates, interviewing them etc.) at a target school for our firm.
- What is your preferred class size and environment (urban/rural)? Response: I'm open on both of these fronts, especially with respect to class size. I suppose an urban environment would be my first choice though.
- Any thoughts on the type of student culture you seek? Response: I'm open here. If a school will make me competitive for IB, then I will work with the culture.

Regarding target schools, I'd consider the following as stretch schools: Booth, Kellogg (it's a misconception that it's more a marketing/strategy school, as it also has an excellent finance program), Wharton, Stern, Sloan, CBS (though with rolling admissions, it's quite competitive at this point), and Yale. Others I'd consider that are SLIGHTLY less competitive are Tuck, Johnson, and Darden.

I know it's a broad list, but all of these are strong in finance - it really would help to narrow down in terms of the culture/environment you're seeking. After all, it's a substantial investment in time and $ and you want to make sure the program's a good fit for you! Hope that helps a bit :)
