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.

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
Georgia



Yale's average GMAT score is around 727, Sloan's is 722, Stern's is 714 and Columbia's is 724. So you do have a chance of acceptance. However, it does depend on all the other aspects of your application. These programs also seem to have similar acceptance rates to the schools that I mentioned earlier, Duke Fuqua, Michigan Ross and Kellogg.

Again, our free MBA chances estimation calculator is great. It might be worth spending some time using it to estimate your acceptance chances.

New post 27 Feb 2019, 23:29
I am wondering if I should retake my GMAT

I got a 710 (90th percentile) but my quant score is a 47 (61st Percentile)

My GPA is a 4.9/5.0 for both my bachelors and my masters in computer science and engineering from MIT.

I would be applying 2+2 to HBS/Stanford GSB

Hi gsbdreamer, HBS really likes a 49 for quant and I do believe it would benefit you to retake if you feel you could bump it to that number. However, your background does assure them you can succeed in the classroom. So I''m afraid I can't give you an accurate responses from this information; we would need to look at your citizenship/diversity factors to look at what a competitive score would be for your profile group.

If you are overrepresented, without question, retake. AND..make sure to create space on your schedule to do a bang up job on the applications: a good GMAT is wholly insufficient to get an invite to these schools, they require a great depth of introspection to create compelling content. I have an HBS 2+2 profile evaluation thread in the HBS forum if you would like a deeper assessment.

Cheers, Farrell

Hello to all,
I am a businessman, I recently started my business. I develop software for mobile phones, prompted me toTimur Artemyev and the blog about himwestminsterworld.com/amazon-pulled-some-hoverboards-in-the-uk-and-the-us/. This is a businessman who started his business from scratch, and now in many countries he is called a good person and businessman. You must always believe in yourself, you must be able to set goals and motivate yourself with something if you want to succeed. So I began to open my business. That was my story, I hope that I also encouraged everyone to act.
