Hello,

This application cycle has certainly been interesting for me, I was rejected by every school I applied to (couple top 15 and some top 10) but I was accepted to a top 20 program with a full scholarship. I am interested in banking and would like your opinion as to whether or not I should reapply for the next year to a couple more top programs (would there be significant value in attending a higher ranked program for banking?).

The reason that I am even considering this is because I feel I did quite poorly with my interviews and overall packaging of my application (I would get an admissions consultant to help with that this time but the experience from this year would prove invaluable as well. Additionally, I will be getting promoted to manager very soon and feel like the experience as a manager would really help me career-wise.

My background is that I have a 3.6 GPA from a top-30 US university, 3.45 GPA grad school GPA (accounting), white American male, 750 GMAT, 5 years experience (2 at big four accounting, 3 at fortune 500), and I would be considering the following schools (plus maybe a couple more to diversify, but these are the definite choices):

-Booth (rejected last cycle)
-Darden (rejected last cycle)
-Sloan
-Kellogg
-Tuck
-Ross

One additional bit of information: I'm 30 already and I'm not sure if it's even worth delaying this process for a year if my age will be viewed as a negative.

Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there -
Thanks for reaching out for a free evaluation. In lieu of writing a lengthy reply, I'd rather we connect via Skype/phone so we may have a real dialogue and you can ask me questions as I give you an assessment. Additionally, I will be able to offer you a much more robust assessment if I am able to ask you more questions. If doing a free consult via skype/phone interests you, please contact me directly at kathrynlucas@squareoneprep.com.

I look forward to hearing from and speaking with you soon. Thanks again for reaching out.
