Profile Evaluation- Over repped Group

Post Wed Sep 21, 2011 9:13 am
A big thank you in advance for your help.

Age: 23 (applying in next 3-4 years)
Race/Gender: Caucasian Male
Undergrad: Tier 1.5 School (UVA, Michigan, Notre Dame, Brown, Wash U etc). Majored in Finance and German with a concentration in International Studies.
GPA: 3.7+, graduated with honors
GMAT: 690 (retaking soon and aiming for 730-740)
Work Experience: Working for a top tier management consulting firm (McKinsey, Bain, BCG).
"Extras": Have spent considerable time abroad, ~9 months in Europe, one internship in England and studied abroad twice elsewhere. Volunteered on a medical mission in Africa, some other local volunteer work.

Where are my current weak points and chances of a top 10 preferably top 5 (HBS, GSB, Kellog)? I'm worried my GMAT is too low given my background, but feel a 730 or above would put me in decent shape and is definitely in reach.

Thanks again.

Your weak points: nothing obvious from what you have written.
With experience at a top consulting firm, and your international background, you just work on getting that GMAT score up and you will be fine. since you have sooooo long till you apply, spend your time that you do in your volunteer positions well, and see what you can do to take lead there.
