    Mr. Multimedia, it sounds like you’ve had lots of opportunities to put your skills to work in high pressure, intense situations. And since you work as a producer at a top media firm, I think you have a background that immediately takes you out of the pile of mainstream MBA candidates. You are obviously hoping to use your MBA to transition out of your current role and into a product management post. If you hope to do that in the sports or media field, that would make total sense and an admissions team would buy it. Your GPA is right on target with the latest class average at Goizueta of 3.2. While Emory does not disclose its average class GRE scores, I think it’s safe …

Overall I like your chances, but the one thing I always double check with folks who have verbal-heavy majors/careers like journalism is how your quant side shakes out.

    Sounds like you will have some amazing stories to tell in your application. You have picked some great target schools at which I think you will be successful. Atlanta’s tie into the news, media and movie industries will make it an attractive place to be. And, you can just head right down the road to the Masters! I think you will be an attractive addition to an MBA class. As you are putting together your application, keep in mind leadership and community. This can come in many forms – and since you have had the same title throughout your career (based on what you have put here) you will want to highlight how you have increased responsibility and been a leader – professionally and personally. …

    Really depends upon the quant score of your sub-par GRE total score of 308. If low, then entering an MBA program might necessitate a pre-MBA quantitative skills course.
