Hi everyone, just wanted to ask for some advice on which B-schools to apply to. 

Male, white, 27 

Underaged GPA: 2.9 - Economics Non target state school ranked top 80 US news 

Graduate GPA: 3.5 - Econometrics and Quantitative Economics Non target state school ranked top 80 US news

Not out of the question, but a lot of it depends on what you want to do.

I've had friends with stats like yours get dinged from T20 programs, and others get into M7/T10 programs...a lot of it came down to their WE/essays/goals. 

I would say crush the gmat, then crush the essays. Very strong essays take a very long time to put together.  

If you don't have a clear idea of a post-MBA goal and how the targeted b-school is going to help you get there (at least to tell the adcom), it really doesn't' matter what your gmat is...going to be hard to get in...
