Nobody cares where what you work. Its what you do with it. Did you deliver measurable results, lead people, have your responsibilty increased. Are you looking to get an mba for the right reasons, did you work at slalom (this a joke), all of these matter

The GMAT is a bit light, but if your strong in other areas, that would up your chances. I got into a top ten with a 680, but I had other strengths to balance it out.

It's an entire package formula - not just the gmat not just the undergrad gpa but who/ what you've done, and have potential to do. Source: 680 GMAT, 3.2 undergrad GPA, In at Booth, Ross, Stern, Waitlist at Kellogg, Yale, Ding at Stanford and Johnson. It's the entire story that matters.

You're good. Accounting is a tangible, respected skill going into b-school. P1- white guys need considerably higher numbers to get into b school because there are a ton of white guy applicants, and schools value a diverse student- body.

Prin1- Thanks for the explanation. Makes sense, even though white men are 70% of the US population

Eh no bait here, I had no clue. I like to ask questions to gain insight. Knowledge is power!
