580 on my practice GMAT, solid study plan I've adhered to with plans to take the test mid-May and I'm on track to get ~700 from practice exams. My undergrad GPA 2.75. Am I crazy for trying?

EXTRA NOTE: I've had 6 years of an illustrious career since my undergrad in both marketing and management consulting. My undergrad was plagued by extreme personal loss and while I hate to use it as an excuse, it majorly impacted me and left me adrift. My career has helped me refocus and find a sense of purpose, which has resulted in extreme success after moving on from that chapter of my life.

I had a 2.7 (humanities) and ended up with a 740 on the gmat (was at about 690 2 months before the exam) and, with a solid work history, got into several T15s with a full ride at one. And I don’t have a good reason for being a screwup in college. Point is don’t let posts on here intimidate you, trying isn’t crazy. In fact I wish I applied to additional higher tier programs.

OP: what is your target school?

Possible.

Yeah you're right. It cuts after two lines instead of expanding.
