Got GSAP.. but now I am nervous about getting accepted to a top MBA program. Haven’t taken the GSAT yet (in process) but typically am not a strong test taker. Curious what sort of GSAT scores got people in to what schools?

23 years old, $0 in debt, $71k cash in the bank, $12.4K invested in the stock market and working Big 4 making 76.2k a year. Currently invested in VOO, VOOG, BRK.B, and MSFT (ROTH IRA & Individual Brokerage A/Cs). Should I be investing more heavily with all the cash I’ve saved up; I’m a little worried about the market volatility, but also I’m 23 so want to cash in on compounding interest.
