3.3 as an ORM will be tough for M7 and almost impossible for HSW without MBBs or something really strong Nobel prize or something. As for non HSW, the higher GMAT the better so 770+

How many Asian candidates have you seen at HSW from Big4 consulting with a 3.3. Maybe W but HS is a very long reach here

750+ and some good extra curriculars

It's not a binary yes-no score on the GMAT; since there'll be a lot of folks with your basic profile, story will matter a lot. Rule of thumb, I think a GMAT in the middle two quartiles (north of 700 at most M7s) will at least get you in the conversation. There are no guarantees, but a 750+ will make that box a positive.

Want to double check my understand of a credit card balance transfer is correct: what’s stated in the picture means I can transfer my balance from another credit card onto this card and not pay interest on the moved balance for 15 months. So if im waiting for the new card I just got approved for to come in, I can make a purchase on another card and then transfer the balance onto the new card? The new card in question is Chase Freedom Flex, I need to make a purchase b4 it physically arrives
