Hello...

I recently took the GMAT and got a 630 on it. I have 1 year of work experience as a Executive Team Leader at Target Co. I graduated from suny geneseo with a 3.3. I have also been a Tae Kwon Do coach for several universities for over 3 years which gave me alot of leadership experience. I was born in Russia and am fluent in russian and spanish.

What schools would you recommend for me?

I am looking to apply at Cornell, University of Buffalo, Penn State, and University of Binghamton.

hittomiss45,

Thanks for your note. My answer about where you should apply depends on whether you need to apply this year or if you are willing to wait another year. If you have to apply this year with only 1 year of work experience, a 630 gmat and a 3.3 gpa, your options will be more limited to top 30 schools. Instead, if you are willing to work another year, retake the GMAT and build an alternate transcript, your chances of gaining admission to a higher ranked school like Cornell in 2010 would be much greater.

Sincerely,

Eliot Ingram
