I will be applying to USC Round 1 with a request for a GMAT waiver. I had initial plans to start working on GMAT prep with intentions to take the exam this summer, but due to a death in the family I wasn't able to prioritize it. I've been working in the Healthcare IT industry for the last 7 years where I work in depth with the software itself, as well as with various stakeholders across different major hospitals, to implement and maintain their system. I'm hoping to use my MBA to boost me into a Director level position with the eventual goal of becoming a CTO.
Really hoping that my family issue + years in a technical field allow the school to grant me a GMAT waiver.
