    Hi Ms. Account Executive! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant. Right off the bat, I am impressed by your early startup experience and success that you had there. I also like that you’ve now worked at companies of different stages/sizes as that shows you’re adaptable and able to progress quickly within different environments. Your career profile seems very strong. Your goals seem attainable too though perhaps product management in the near term post MBA and then startup as a long term goal? That is a common way of framing it so it seems more practical/decisive. I am most concerned about your GMAT since it falls outside Fuqua’s 80% range. Hopefully you are working hard to improve that, or if not, I agree with the …

    Hi Ms. Account Executive, this is Donna Bauman with Stratus Admissions weighing in on your profile. I like your progression at work and even your early entrepreneurial experience. I don’t love your stats—but you do have some time to work on these. If you don’t think you can improve your GMAT score, I suggest you try the GRE as that will likely make it easier to get a bit closer to the school’s average.

    Low GMAT score & modest GPA & vague post MBA goals makes all of your targeted schools a reach.

    Strongly suggest retaking the GMAT to make up for the slightly below average GPA. Extracurricular activities look like the strong point and depending on the type of experience you gained with your start-up, that's what is likely to differentiate you and give you a shot, but I think a top 20 MBA program will be difficult to get into. Working as an account executive will be tough to differentiate yourself since there are millions of account executives. Depends on the prestige/success of the SaaS company you're working for.
