Candidate:

Mr. Gymnastics Coach

About Me:

Currently an elite gymnastics coach at the top gymnastics club in the Pacific Northwest. I am looking to expand my impact base work my way into the administrative side of sport as a president of a national or international governing body for sport. My plan is to strengthen my business acumen through an MBA program and a stint in consulting.

Poets&Quants has been such a great resource for me as I don’t have any acquaintances with MBAs. I am reapplying to a couple of schools this cycle and tried to improve my application through improved test scores. I have a 660 GMAT, then I switched to the GRE and scored a 328. What are your thoughts on how schools will evaluate that switch?
