Native American looking for MBA program

TcamppppTcampppp Registered User Posts: 3 New Member
Hi! In the coming months, I'm going to need to narrow down my search for the best MBA program possible with my grades and experience. My goal has been for some time now to be accepted into Stern NYU. With my current grades and experience, what schools should I be looking at and is NYU a reasonable possibility and/or what do I need to improve to be accepted into NYU?

-Native American student from West Virginia
-GPA- 3.3
-GMAT- 680
-Founded a non profit organization helping low income students find and apply to colleges in my hometown
-Intern for a consulting company in NYC this summer

    How long ago did you finish undergrad? What have you done in the mean time? Your GPA matters less and less depending on the time when you were in undergrad and what you have accomplished in the mean time. Your GMAT and GPA is a bit low for the top tier of schools, but you are an excellent candidate from a diversity standpoint (there are close to zero NA MBA students). If you could improve your GMAT score 30-40 points that would make a big difference. If you only have a year or two of work experience that will make entry much more difficult, and it will also be a waste of time for you.
