    Hey All,

    I just want to get some feedback on whether I am a competitive applicant for NYU PT MBA Program and to get any recommendations or input on my application:

    Background:
    University of California San Diego: (#1 Ranked Bioengineering Program)
    B.S Bioengineering 3.55 GPA
    M.Eng Bioengineering 3.78 GPA
    GMAT: 670 (only took it once)

    I plan on doing my MBA during my time at Teach for America. I will apply to the Social Entrepreneurship and Finance specializations and plan on emphasizing my plans to start a company in the future that has a social impact in the Medical or Biotech industries. I plan on using my experience at TFA to both grow, have a social impact and learn the ins and out of a successful nonprofit program that has had a major social impact since its inception. (Any Input would be great!)

    Hi Peter and welcome to Admissions Boards!

    You should post this on the Ask AdmissionsConsultants thread for a better reply than I can provide.
