Ultimately, the entire package matters (GMAT, work experience, application essays, interviews, recommendations, and undergraduate GPA). Since you are applying for business school, work experience is extremely important. Upon enrollment, the average amount of work experience for each student is approximately 5 years, which is fairly substantial.

You should also consider the brand of the school. Cornell Johnson offers a fully immersive business experience, experiential learning opportunities, and a strong alumni network. In this sense, your leadership experience is very important. You should be prepared to articulate (both in the application and during the interview) how you have led a group of people to achieve certain aims, worked to achieve consensus between groups, or mentored and coached others in the past. The student-run hedge fund, the Cayuga Fund, will be of interest to finance-oriented applicants.
