Ding... sometimes it just doesnt work out in your favor, no matter how hard you try.

Wharton now moves to my "I didnt want to go there anyway" list.

Damn this hurts.

i just got dinged.
i've been dinged by HBS, Booth, and Wharton. Really losing hope here.

What are they looking for?

My profile:
Wrk Exp: 4yrs
GMAT: 710 (q50 v36)
GPA: 3.17
Extracurricular: Volunteering at hospital, cancer society committee, teaching engineering to elementary kids

Right now, I'm thinking I need to rewrite the GMAT, but I thought something >700 was a foot in the door.

Anyone going through similar frustrations?
Even the admits, have any ideas on how to improve the profile? or any other suggestions.

Thanks

Improve your profile by shooting for a school who accepts you for you. Continue doing what you enjoy. I am passionate about the things I do volunteer-wise and in my free time. I am not going to start some bogus charity that my heart isnt in just to impress these guys. Another year of working wouldnt be bad for you either, but 4 years is adequate. Not much you can do to sharpen up the profile.

I feel you tho.. 750 GMAT, 5 years WE in corp finance, 3.5 GPA in finance, volunteering - tutoring, volunteer vacations, recruiting at my old school.

Most frustrating, I definiately kicked butt on the essays. They were by far my best set, and I am usually pretty pessimistic about myself, but these were good. Who knows what Wharton is looking for. Holding me back was undergrad school is tier 2 or 3, corp finance role, and white male applicant. It is what is.

With all of the seemingly superstar profiles I've seen, I am surprised there haven't been more people invited to an interview. Perhaps those will go out later in the afternoon. Never know what they're doing at admissions, though sure wish I did.
