    I don't have a ton to say based on this. Overall, things look fine. Everything is decent but nothing stands out as extraordinary. Undergrad GPA is a little low. How were your grades in math, econ, and finance classes? How are your letters of recommendation? Anyone well published in finance?

    I think you should concentrate on top 50 with some top 20 thrown in.
