    Mr. Wealth MGMT: Emily here, Master Consultant at The MBA Exchange. I was an Associate Director of Admissions at Columbia Business School so know that your 2.6 will make it very tough to get into CBS. The 740 GMAT they will see as solidly in their range but not exceptional so it will not outweigh the undergraduate GPA. There are a few things I’d recommend to strengthen your candidacy for CBS. 1) Take a quantitatively rigorous class and get an A.

    Hi Mr. Wealth MGMT! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant here weighing in on your profile. First, your three promotions and already making it to the AVP rank are impressive!

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling Odds Assessment: 15%

    Mr. Wealth MGMT – Thanks for sharing your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus. I’m very impressed with your career trajetory but absent any baseline for how many promotions others typically get, I’m not sure how to evaluate. I’m more interested in the contributions and impact and what your recommenders have to say about how you lead and work with others. A few things to consider as you move forward in the application process:
    1) The 800 pound gorilla – your 2.6 may not be a showstopper but you absolutely need to take ownership of it and demonstrate that you are an A student today. Use the optional essay to explain (but not excuse) what was going on during undergrad that resulted in the subpar performance. …

    Why real estate ? The answer to this question should help you to determine whether a two year, full-time MBA program is the appropriate course to take or whether a one year specialty masters degree in real estate development would better facilitate your goals. The low GPA will be a significant hurdle for admission to elite MBA programs, but not for entry into a specialty masters degree program.
