I manage all of the firm’s cash flow, projections, and analysis.

    Hello Mr. Skyline! Thanks for posting. Krista from mbaMission here. If Wharton and CBS are your dream schools, I encourage you to look at their EMBA programs. At your age and level of experience -- and GMAT score and GPA -- it will be tough to crack the full-time programs. To be clear, I'm not saying you won't be successful! It's just that the competition as this level can be really really tough and you really need to deliver across all elements of your candidacy to make the cut. You may just find it easier to make the case for EMBA programs and position your candidacy. I would encourage you to add some safer programs too if you can't get your GMAT up to the class profile ...
