    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission. I love your multidimensional nature and schools will too – an adventure sports aficionado and cello expert!

    Your GMAT score is below the average for the schools you’re aiming for, and I-banks are sometimes known to ask for GMAT scores from candidates as well, so I think the biggest thing you can do right now is retake it for a 700+, with solid balance between quant and verbal. If you do that, and if you are able to communicate clearly in your application 1. the motivation for pivoting to a banking career and 2. your fit for each program based on your thorough research and conversations, you candidacy has potential. Best of luck!!

If you get that up above 700 I think you have a solid chance at schools like Cornell and UNC Kenan-Flagler which have fantastic resources for someone like yourself transitioning into ibanking. You will absolutely need to leverage all components of your application (essays, resume, short answers, recs) to tell the story of WHY you want to transition into investment banking. Don’t throw away the experience you have …
