irst off, thanks so much for doing this! I've completed my profile and wanted an assessment of what schools I might fit in.

Education: 2.9 GPA at Ivy undergrad while an athlete and triple majoring. I was also a chemistry major for 2 years and this killed my GPA. I realize this is very low, so I've taken 3 advanced math courses online and have received an "A-" or an "A" in all of them.

GMAT: 750 (50Q/42V)

Work Experience: Started in I-Banking but moved to TFA. Promoted at TFA and achieved highest results with students at school. Also started a mentoring program for students that changed culture and created a data analytics program for teachers that increased student achievement by 21% on state standardized test. After TFA I joined one of top schools in my state and have continued to push my students to achieve highly. I've also been selected to a number of leadership roles at my current school, including a committee that reviews the district budget.

LOR: One strong and one very strong from current supervisors. However, their enthusiasm for me probably needs to be tempered with the fact that they have never written a business school LOR before.

Extra Curriculars: Heavily involved with education non-profit. Also a mentor with a refugee non-profit. Division 1 athlete as an undergrad. I interview prospective undergrads for my alma matter for admissions (last 3 years). I also am a part of a nationally ranked competitive trivia team (It sounds ridiculous, I know. But it is a thing!).

Demographics: 27 year old white male.

Post MBA Goals: Transition to consulting with EdTech as a backup option.

Stretch Schools: Tuck, Yale SOM, Kellogg, CBS, Sloan, Wharton

Target Schools: Ross, Fuqua

Safety Schools: McCombs, Tepper, Cornell

I'm just trying to get an idea of what my chances are at these schools or where I should apply. Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks so much for sharing your profile. Fantastic GMAT score along with an impressive and diverse set of work experience that will really help you out in the process. Also, well aligned and ECs with good depth and leadership experience. You are coming from the competitive white male demo and you also have a low GMAT so I think that will keep you out of range for Wharton and Sloan. Kellogg will remain a slight reach but I think you have a shot at that school along with the others you have listed

Thanks so much for your response! Just wanted to double check since you said that I have both a fantastic GMAT score and a low GMAT. Are you saying that 750 is low for my white male demographic at Sloan and Wharton?

Thanks again!

Sorry that was a typo I was referring to your GPA as low your GMAT is very strong for any demographic! With regards to your GPA being an athlete with a challenging IVY course load will be received accordingly as well, your high GMAT should reinforce you are a bright guy.
