Do I stand a chance? Or is r/MBA right and I should stick with lower tier schools. I'm aware my GPA/academics and community experience will likely be my weakest points.

Background and nationality: Chinese American Male with 4 years of WE (5 by matriculation)

Undergrad Information:
- University of Washington
- Business/Accounting major with 3.4 GPA

GMAT:
- GRE: 167Q 163V ~730 equivalent
- Took GRE because I applied to another Master's program (was accepted), but ended up dropping program for current role.

Work experience and leadership:
- 1 year KPMG Advisory
- 3 years managing compliance program at late-stage startup that IPOed 2 years after joining. Experience working on S-1 Filing/IPO and 1 promotion
- 5 months (current) program manager at Google

Community and others:
- Founded a business fraternity chapter in undergrad, serving as president and treasurer
- Currently mentoring 3 undergraduate students in said business fraternity
- Multiple case competition wins at national/international level in undergrad, invited to judge/coach quarterly

Post MBA goals:
- Break out of back-end role and into product. I want a holistic view of a company and am currently missing an understanding of how a product is created and brought to market

Anything else?
- As mentioned earlier, was accepted into a graduate program but ditched it to move for my current role
- Prior to moving, had accepted a Product Management internship with my previous company and was prepared to transition into PM after completing school

Hi everyone, wanted to get feedback on my chances, to see if there is any value in applying this round. Would it hurt my app for next year to apply this round?

I balanced studying and my app this past month, and ended with a 650 GMAT yesterday (35V/44Q). I definitely think I can raise this to ~710-750 given 2 more months of studying, my practice tests ranged from 610 at the start to 670/680/720, with 3 weeks of studying.

I'm going to have great Recommendations and a solid essay, so would there be any chance with my below stats for this round? I'm currently planning on R1 next year, but wanted some feedback so see if there was even a chance this round.

Other stats:
Engineering major, Biology minor in undergrad Top 15 US - 3.33 GPA, upward trend
Master's in Biomedical Engineering Top 15 US - 3.90 GPA
-3 year president of sports club of ~100 members
-RA for 2 years
-Invented medical device, won competitions and funding (funding < $100K), did not make it to market
-First student in new master's program, formed curriculum and took a few business classes.

Work experience: 3 years at leading healthcare tech company - consultant/project manager. Invented software to save lives based on past experiences.

Would appreciate any advice, thank you in advance! I'm going to begin ramping up studying in another week or two to get 700+ for next year's R1 cycle...

If you're not a female and/or a URM I'd say your odds are close to zero given your low GMAT and low GPA. I'd aim for 730+ but even then I think it will be extremely tough. I think non H/S M7 is doable if you get the GMAT up significantly.

Hi,

What programs are you considering applying to? This will be important in determining if you have a chance or not.

I would say that if 650 is within the mid 80% range of the program you are applying for then go for it this round! The GMAT is only one aspect of the application. Your other stats look good and if you can craft a few really good Essays you would have a decent chance. I don't think it could hurt you trying.

The only thing is you probably wont get any $$$ in terms of a scholarship. If you applied next year with a 700+ it could save you maybe around 30k in fees.

Given your stats, I think you would be a much stronger candidate applying with 700+ vs 650. However, dont underestimate the effort that goes into breaking the 700 barrier. It took me months of studying to go from 650 to 700+. GSB does not disclose the middle 80% gmat but estimation is from 700-750.

Good luck joining to 700 club.

Thanks! That's super helpful. I really think I can hit 700+ with another month or two, so I'll do that.

My dream would be GSB, but others I would hope to have a shot at would be HBS, Wharton, Kellogg, and Duke. I'm looking to stay focused in the healthcare/tech and potentially entrepreneurial space. I have a strong essay on why healthcare/my profile.

I noticed two challenging areas in your profile, so you might want to spend next year working on following two suggestions.

First, you are part of an overrepresented minority. Indian + Infosys is way too common in bay area, so do something to stand out.

Second, all your community activity is fluff because you are a participant in most of the groups, not a founder or leader. Try to lead a group within next year and it will certainly help your profile.

Your GMAT score is impressive, and whilst we have had clients admitted to Stanford with much lower GMAT score, Stanford generally tends to be very selective. This does not mean that you do not stand a chance, however, I suggest you additionally look into programs of a similar stature, maybe with higher acceptance rates such as Duke Fuqua, Michigan Ross and Kellogg.

If you are interested in the health field, Kellog have what they call a “healthcare pathway” and Michigan Ross have a “healthcare management concentration”. Other schools also carry similar programs and specializations.

You should also checkout our free MBA chances estimation calculator. It is a great tool for those who are unsure of their options.


Good luck

Thank you for your help.


There are very few business schools that offer an MBA in Consulting. However, there are plenty that offer specializations in strategy, such as Harvard, Washington Olin and Georgetown McDonough.

Columbia Business School, Kellogg and Chicago Booth all have a high percentage of MBA graduates who enter the consulting field. Be aware that Columbia's admission deadlines are slightly different from other schools.

Your GMAT score and past work experience are both impressive.

I suggest you check out our specializations page https://aringo.com/mba-specializations/ or our free MBA chances estimation calculator.

Good luck

Hello Gama14

While you have a good GMAT score and experience in family business, I'd recommend waiting another year before applying.
This will give you enough time to grow at work (you will be competing with people who have spend more time in the industry and due to that might have better career progress/achievements).
Also, spend this time working on extracurricular activities (of which I see no mention) and building more specific career goals (again no mention here)- there is a lot to work on here.

You may want to read here on what factors work in a profile and here to add to your research on career goals.
