3.6 GPA / Unknown GMAT Looking for more tech [#permalink] New post 23 May 2013, 06:17
A Brief Summary:

Age: 27
School and Concentration: UC- Santa Barbara, Public Policy
Work History: Consulting for approximately 3 years (2 at IBM, 1 at Deloitte)
GMAT: I took once and scored very poorly. About to start Manhattan Prep. Shooting for a 700+

I currently work on functional requirements on a federal IT project. While I don't know 100% what I want to do, I know it involves technology, either doing something like product management or possibly get involved with User Experience. Ideally I would love to work for an Amazon, Google, or Apple. The obvious choices seem to beL

1. Stanford
2. Berkeley
3. MIT
4. Texas-Austin
5. Carnegie Mellon

Are there other schools I should be considering or should I be re-considering these choices? Also, I know a lot of this is dependent on my GMAT score, so I'm assuming I can break 700.

Your list of schools make sense. If you do well on your GMAT I may even suggest throwing Wharton into the mix, they have some strong ties to tech. You may want to consider throwing in a 10-16 (stern, duke, johnson, darden, ross, anderson, yale). I'm not 100% sure which would be your best bet though... I'd figure Fuqua has strong ties to apple...

From that tier, Ross and Anderson seem to do the best in tech recruiting.

OP, your other choices definitely make sense to me. Get that GMAT up to 700+ and you'll have a shot. As a fellow UC grad, I wish you the best of luck!

Hi,

With the score of 700+ GMAT, you may target your shortlisted b-schools. You just need to write good essays and position well in interviews. You may try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.apphelp.co.in/b-school-selector.php

Let me know in case of further queries.

Regards
Erina
