Honest question: mid twenties white male with 720 gmat and 3.9 (finance) gpa from a top public university. Am I facing uphill battle for lack of diversity. Do I need a gmat bump above median for M7

I'd say yes. Add in that and some sort of differentiating story and you'd have a good shot at multiple M7

Yeah, right now you’re competitive but boosting your gmat will help significantly with top 10 admissions

Not a great amount of extracurriculars (volunteer place) and will have 3+ years work in finance with 1+ promotion

Should admissions be blind to gender and race? I guess I’m getting at can I reliably look at data and not count my demographic against me

I wouldn't waste your time on the gmat. Focus instead on differentiators - find something to get involved with and be able to tell a story as to why it's always been important to you

Your demographics are still the largest pool at top mba programs. You can certainly use data to see where you fit. Your stats are good - you should be focusing on a great story and application. If you were Asian, it'd be a much different story since it's more competitive.
