Profile Evaluation

by luisaelenaab » Wed Mar 09, 2016 1:43 pm

I would like to apply to a full-time MBA Program on 2017 and I´d like to know how much I should aspire to on my GMAT with the following profile. I will be applying this fall to some of the top 10 US Schools on the first application round.
Nationality: Venezuelan (Latin Minority)
Gender: Female (minority)
Age: 24
GPA: 3.1 (5th in my class) in Business Administration (mention in management) at Universidad Metropolitana (3rd University in Venezuela)
Work Experience: 4 months in a BTL company as account assistant (1 month) and then executive (3 months), this short experience I don´t know if I should include, 1 year of Commercial Trainee Program at Nestlé Venezuela, currently Commercial and Digital Communications Specialist (Total experience for the moment of application: 1 year and 9 months at Nestlé, for the moment of starting the MBA 2, 5 years at Nestlé, last year as Consumer Marketing Manager, this will probably not be by the time of the application)
Extracurricular Activities: 5 years in the university Model UN program (as delegate, secretary, head delegate and faculty advisor to years). 2 years in a foundation called Embajadores Comunitarios, as volunteer and as Program Coordinator (part of the executive committee), and 5 years as volunteer in a foundation called Un Día Juntos, Currently Vice-President of the Alumni Association of my university (Universidad Metropolitana) Also I was an English and math tutor for children (should I include it in my application?)
Miscellaneous: prize for academic excellence and student participation in my university.

What do you think of my profile, how much should I be aiming to on my GMAT Score?
What comments do you have for my questions?

Best Regards.

Thanks for sharing your profile. You have a nice background and your relative minority status should certainly help. I would aim to get close or hit the average scores for your target schools, which for top 10 programs is around 710-720 these days
