You're on the right track. More professional leadership experience will strengthen your profile as will a strong (700+) GMAT score. Make sure that you can fully articulate your planned post-MBA career path and also communicate how an MBA will impact your plans.

Actually, your profile is pretty solid for your target schools. A higher GMAT score will definitely make you more competitive. Also, do you have any extracurriculars? Finally, be sure that you can clearly articulate your short and long-term career goals (even if they are subject to change).

Overall, your profile looks strong with the exception of your GMAT score. I am sure you realize that this is a weak spot. In order to be considered for an MBA from top program then you must at least get to the high 600's. Additionally, you will need to highlight the unique aspects of your profile in...

It also helps that you have done well in "ve...


As an MBA consultant, I cannot provide advice on your MIS choices.

Your limited full-time work experience and your low cumulative GPA are definitely hurdles to overcome in the application process. Be sure to use the optional essay to discuss the reasons for your low GPA and if possible, highlight any lessons learned from the experience. If you are certain that you ...

Be very clear when stating your goals and how they alig...
