Hey Buck92,

Can you share more details about yourself? Work experience/Leadership experiences/Country/Gender/Current Company?

These demographics matter a lot to the schools. If you want me to do a profile analysis, send your resume to Jatin@pythagurus.com

Thanks , Jatin

Of course. I have two years in asset management sales since undergrad with one promotion. I also worked full time through undergrad in finance. I don’t want to say company name but it’s a large asset manager/broker dealer. I am an American white male.

Hi-

If you can manage a jump of 40 points on your GMAT, I will recommend that you wait for a year Buck92 and apply next year. You are not completely ruled out this year though, and your chances at Georgetown and Vandy/UNC are higher than those at Duke/Cornell, however, with another year and an extra 30 to 40 points on your GMAT, you can take a shot at higher ranked schools( Duke/Darden/Stern etc. ) .

Ideally someone like you should have done the early bird for Duke. After the commitment round( early bird- when they expect you to withdraw from other places), they open the gates for everyone. This is when you will be placed right next to the 700's with 4+ years of work experience. Even if I discount the lack of work experience as you can showcase maturity of thought and leadership since you had been working during the Undergrad too, I still see GMAT as slightly on the lower side Buck.

Can you get a GMAT 710? If the answer in your mind is- YES! I will recommend that you wait for a year and then apply. You will be giving them Money, and two years of your life. Wait for a year Buck. You should be able to get better schools.

What if I can get that score this year? I’m also 26 if that makes a difference. That’s why I don’t want to wait too long

Go get it then Buck. If you are going to be applying with two years of work experience, try to stay above 720/730. With some serious networking, class visits, and strong research, you should be able to knock good doors in the country. Vanderbilt can probably wait.
