What are my chances?  [#permalink]

Hello,

1st round season is upon us! I am looking into my odds for some schools from my information below before shelling out $$$ to apply... if you could possibly give me a 1-10 chance (10 high chance, 1 low chance) that’d be great.

Mexican-American (raised in Mexico, moved to US, but US citizen)
GMAT: 740
Undergrad GPA 3.56 from top 10 public engineering schools and a minor in business with a 3.86. (Also attended community college before and had a 4.00... does that count?)
Work experience: 3 years of work experience as a sales engineer at major technology firm with 2 promotions (think Google, Oracle, Microsoft, etc.)
Extracurriculars: volunteer at a foundation which focuses on helping low income high school age minorities get into college for the past 3 years. No leadership position, but good involvement (2 hours a week or so for most weeks)

I will be potentially applying to:
Wharton (with very strong recs)
HBS
Sloan
Booth
Hass
NYU

Thank you very much in advance!

Hi there,

Thanks for your post! However many Round 1 deadlines have already passed? And/or are coming quite soon? So I'm not sure I follow your point about Round 1 and your school list... feel free to clarify.

In any case, GMAT and grades look solid, and work and EC experiences sound respectable as well, though harder to fully assess all leadership/accomplishments with this limited info here. There are still a lot of unknowns such as how well your essays and recommendations will stack up, how your career goals and overall story will come through etc, but based on info here I would hope you would be considered at top 5-10 schools. On your list as you likely are aware NYU will be most in-reach. To discuss in more detail and better get a feel for your timing and your resume, feel free to register for a free 30 minute consultation at your convenience, www.mbamission.com/consult. Good luck!

Hello omuller501


Being Latino will absolutely work to your advantage, currently and probably to many years to come, there is trend of encouragement of Latino population to pursue higher education in US.

GMAT is great, that is above average of any school.

GPA is fine.

Work experience is relevant.

Extracurricular is great, helping less fortunate is something they want to see and will value.


Some cold facts :

Wharton average GMAT is 730

HBS 729

Sloan 722

Booth 730

Hass 725

NYU 714


It is impossible to evaluate your chances and rate them from 1-10, however based on some facts as guidance, if I had to assign probability to your school list it would go like this, Wharton/HBS/Booth at least 50-60%, Haas/Sloan 60-70% and NYU 80% or more.

This probability will apply to securing an interview and serious consideration, from there it is all up to you.


Good Luck ! :cool:
