Just submitted R2 apps and would love feedback on my stats. 164q/164v gre, 3.3gpa from t50, work exp is 1.5 yr consulting and a 1.5yr vc backed startup I had a few years ago. Worried I aimed too high

You good fam


You think? I applied to like 6 schools I’m just a little in over my head haha. I appreciate your encouragement

Looks like that GRE is around a 710 GMAT? Assuming story/recommendations/essays are strong I don’t see why this application would not becompetitive for top 15 schools. M7 schools are probably a bit of a stretch but still very possible - especially if you are URM.


Yes definitely!


Cont... I applied to 2 m7 schools and a few t15 / LBS. just scared I won’t get in anywhere

Thanks guys for the feedback I feel better now. I will update this thread if I get in anywhere
