Profile Review - USC part-time MBA program

Post Fri Sep 15, 2017 8:53 am
Hello admissions consultants,

I was hoping for a profile review to see what my chances are of getting into USC's part-time MBA program.

BACKGROUND:
Work experience: 6 years in the mortgage banking industry
3 years - Quality Control Auditor
1 years - Capital Markets Analyst
2 years - Corporate Oversight (Compliance, Counterparty Risk, Project Management/Implementation)
Unfortunately, I don't have much direct management experience, and I've worked at the same company (150 to 200 employees) since college graduation. The company is small, private, and not very well known.

Undergrad school/major GPA: UC Irvine - Dual BA: Economics/International Studies (GPA: 2.87)
UCLA Extension (Pre-MBA courses): Accounting 1a/1b, Business Statistics, Macroeconomics, (3.9 GPA)

GMAT Score: xxx (aiming for 700-730)
Race/nationality: Korean
Sex: Male
Current Age: 29

Reasons for MBA:
1) Education
2) Networking
3) Become the CEO of my current company (family business). Not sure if this is entirely relevant, but my father is a former Trojan as well, and he wants me to be his successor.

I'm planning to take the GMAT soon, and If I achieve a 700+ GMAT score, what are my chances of getting into USC's part-time MBA program?

Thank you!

Dude, you're a shoe-in. A legacy, with a great GMAT and a family business. You should have no problem getting an admit as long as your application is solid (and you do get that or similarly good GMAT score)

I have to agree, if you present yourself just as you did now (don’t leave any of this stuff out, basically) your chances of admission are really good.
