I know I’m capable of putting in the work to reach my goals of completing my MBA to earn a front-office role.

    Your GMAT is below the average at CBS so I encourage you to retake. What you listed in terms of extracurriculars feels light but there may be more that I’m not seeing. Look to get more engaged either at work or in your broader community in …
