Profile Evaluation (GMAT Score Aspiration)

Post Wed Mar 09, 2016 1:49 pm
Hello,

I would like to apply to a full-time MBA Program on 2017 and I´d like to know how much I should aspire to on my GMAT with the following profile. I will be applying this fall to some of the top 10 US Schools on the first application round.
Nationality: Venezuelan (Latin Minority)
Gender: Female (minority)
Age: 24
GPA: 3.1 (5th in my class) in Business Administration (mention in management) at Universidad Metropolitana (3rd University in Venezuela)
Work Experience: 4 months in a BTL company as account assistant (1 month) and then executive (3 months), this short experience I don´t know if I should include, 1 year of Commercial Trainee Program at Nestlé Venezuela, currently Commercial and Digital Communications Specialist (Total experience for the moment of application: 1 year and 9 months at Nestlé, for the moment of starting the MBA 2, 5 years at Nestlé, last year as Consumer Marketing Manager, this will probably not be by the time of the application)
Extracurricular Activities: 5 years in the university Model UN program (as delegate, secretary, head delegate and faculty advisor to years). 2 years in a foundation called Embajadores Comunitarios, as volunteer and as Program Coordinator (part of the executive committee), and 5 years as volunteer in a foundation called Un Día Juntos, Currently Vice-President of the Alumni Association of my university (Universidad Metropolitana) Also I was an English and math tutor for children (should I include it in my application?)
Miscellaneous: prize for academic excellence and student participation in my university.

What do you think of my profile, how much should I be aiming to on my GMAT Score?
What comments do you have for my questions?

Best Regards.

Hi there,

I think you have many strengths in your profile...I especially like the fact that you completed the trainee program (which are typically quite selective) for a well known company. Sounds like you've had some strong extracurriculars too (by the way, yes, I would include the tutoring somewhere, assuming that was during or after university).

On the GMAT, a good rule of thumb given the programs you're considering is to aim for 700+ overall with at least a 75th percentile on both the Quant and Verbal sections to show balance in your skillsets. If you're not able to hit that on your first attempt, you can definitely retake as schools will always take your highest score.

Good luck and keep us posted if we can help with anything else!
