Am I insane for doing a round 3 Sloan YOLO application? Do I have at least a slight shot or do I hold off for a couple years - Stats and assumptions inside!

Wouldn't go as far as "insane", but a stellar GMAT (750+ I would guess) is your best bet to overcome your GPA. You'll also have to explain away your GPA to adcoms. Absent that GMAT, I gotta imagine it'll be tough if I'm being honest.

Everything else sounds great but know this: each application is a significant amount of work not just for you, but also for recommenders. Ask yourself if you're willing to put in the time because if you throw in a half assed app this cycle and don't get in, it may impact next cycle if you try again.

Core Stats:
- Just over 3 YOE @ matriculation
- 2.9 from decent state school (“public ivy”), business/Econ (plz keep reading though)
- Let’s say GMAT comes out to be 700-720 online, or waive and take later
- Hispanic - I’m told this matters

Experience/story:
- 2 YOE tech strategy/digital transformation consulting for F100 tech company, early promo
- 1 YOE B2B sales role before that, early promo
- 2 different side-gigs advising early stage startups and making significant impact, one of which was to directly aid COVID response (essay potential)

Intangibles and EC’s
- Strong interviewer
- Musician/producer, not famous but published on Spotify etc
- Solid essay writer and can spin well

Do not think you will get in with those stats honestly. Absolutely have to crush gmat

740+

Hispanic? You’re a shoe-in anywhere. You can do it OP!

Can’t tell if sarcastic
