    First off, congrats on your target schools. Given your GPA and GMAT scores along with your experience at what is probably a firm that many in MBA admissions probably don’t know, you’ve selected a perfect range of schools to consider. Cornell may still be a reach but it is not a very big reach and Georgetown and UNC should be right on target unless you didn’t execute well on your application.

  • Odds Assessment: 50%

    Hi Ms. Sports Management: Emily here from The MBA Exchange. I think Cornell, Georgetown and Kenan-Flagler will like that you come from a different industry than many of their other applicants.

    Hello, it’s Lisa Cummings from Stratus Admissions. Love your top choice school, my alma mater the Johnson School. Go Big Red! Your stats certainly fall in the range of your target schools but I would still consider retaking the GMAT after some targeted study. Why? That will of course make you more competitive in the admissions process but it will also when you embark on the job search post MBA.
