Thanks for your input Alex.

I definitely plan to work before applying. However, I wanted to know my chances for the deferred admission programs. The ones offered by HBS and Stanford.

the obvious area of improvement is your GMAT score. Applying straight out of college is very, very competitive. Add 100 points to the GMAT, and you will still struggle. Why not work for a few years, challenge yourself, create real impact, get involved in your community in something about which you are passionate, make a real difference. Then apply? cheers, alex
