Profile Eval Request

by TopMBAHopeful26 » Fri Mar 04, 2016 7:30 am
Hello! I'm hoping to get input on my MBA application strength. Below are my stats:

GMAT: 720 48Q/41V

GPA: 3.95 from Top 20 undergrad business school. Top 1% of class

Work experience: 5 years @ matriculation. 2+ years in Big 4 transaction services practice. Currently working at large private equity shop working in valuation/strategy group.

Certifications: CFA, completed all 3 levels on first attempt

Age: 25, planning on applying R1 for 9/17 start

Some volunteer experience

Solid recommendations

Target schools:
Harvard
MIT
Dartmouth
Duke

Harvard and MIT are by far my top 2 choices, but trying to gauge how realistic these are.

Thanks so much for the help!

Have you tried the Predictor tool at https://bit.ly/1p1FMHd ?

I put in your stats and got Yale, CBS, Tuck as Strong and Stanford, HBS, Wharton as Par. May be worth checking out ..
