Hey mbabullet,

Thanks for reaching out to me. As an Indian applicant, you are going to want to retake the GMAT. As a nation/people, you guys are pretty good when it comes to acing the GMAT. So you have to keep up with the Jones' and the Patel's and get a score in the low 700's.

As far as evaluating your candidacy - can you give me a little more information on your post-MBA short and long-term goals?
I'll cut and paste a blurb here that I post for anyone who does not give me clear goals. I hope its not too didactic!

As you know, the MBA is an education that will allow you to go from where you are today, to where you want to be in the future. It does this by providing you the skills, experience and relationships necessary for you to do so. This being said, I need to know about your background, as well as your future goals. You have provided me some baseline information about where you are today. However, in order for me to provide you with an assessment of what schools you may want to consider applying to, I need to know what your future goals are – both short and long-term. Please provide me this information and I will be glad to provide you some direction.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
