Hi there, Thanks for writing! You have the makings of a strong, well-rounded profile that fits in with the top schools. For the schools you have listed, the average amount of work experience upon matriculation is 4-5 years, so your application may be even stronger if you apply in 2020 to enter in 20...

Hi there - thanks for writing! In order to know which programs might be a good match for you, I'd have to know more about your post-MBA goals, target geography, and what types of experiences/skills you're hoping to gain from the program. Since you're still relatively early in your career with 3 year...

Hi, and thanks for writing! It is true that for candidates with heavily represented backgrounds, Round 1 can help (since at that point, all of the spots are open). However, one should never apply before being fully ready - so if you truly feel that your applications would be half-baked for R1, apply...

Hi, and thanks for writing! Given the schools you're targeting, I would recommend retaking it. You have a good profile and a great quant score, but raising your overall score will put you close to the average for these schools, which is important given their competitiveness. Hope that helps - keep m...

Hi there - thank you for writing! To answer your questions: 1. Is my GMAT score good enough? - 700 is a solid score, but given the schools you're targeting and your competitive demographic, I would aim to increase that by at least 20-30 points if at all possible 2. Should I apply now or wait for a c...

Hi, and thanks for writing. Congrats on the GMAT score! You have solid (and unique) work experience and good academics. The volunteering will definitely help strengthen your profile. For the programs you've listed, I think that having 3.5 years of work experience (if it involves progression of respo...

Hi - thanks for writing! In order to better understand your profile, a couple of questions:

Thanks!

Hi, and thanks for writing back and sharing your goals! Overall, I think you have a diverse and solid profile. A 700+ GMAT would definitely help offset your undergrad GPA. Kellogg is the most competitive school on your list but I think the others are within range for you. In the US, you might also c...

Hi, and thanks for writing! You have an intriguing profile. What I'd like to understand first is - what made you decide to apply to business school, and what would you like to do in the short-term and long-term after graduating? Also, what is your post-MBA geographic preference? Look forward to hear...

Hi - thanks for writing! Overall, it seems that you have a solid profile with good work experience and extracurriculars, so I think that INSEAD (while of course quite competitive) isn't out of range for you. Your GMAT score is strong so that should help offset your GPA somewhat (especially since GMA...
