Hey there,
I’d love to help you out but without more info it’s gonna be hard. Where do you work? What do you do? How quickly have you advanced? Do you have any leadership? What are your great achievements? Do you have notable community service or extra curriculars? Which school did you graduate from?

All of these will play important roles in your evaluation.


Given your GMAT and middle-grade school Wink... I think you mgiht be aiming a bit high... but let's see...

Best,
Jon
