5 B Schools to select during the test [#permalink] New post 24 Jun 2011, 04:52
Hi,

I am an Indian, female, currently working in a software major. My work experience so far is 2 yrs. My projected GMAT scores are around 700. I have 89% in my high school and 83% in my 11th and 12th. My undergraduate gpa is 7.3 on a scale of 10.

I am a part of the Corporate Social Responsibilites group in my company and have been a regular at all the charity events organised as an active volunteer.

I am avid reader. Have actively participated in many extracurricular activities like : debating, skits, eloqution, poem recitals. Have also been on the editorial team of school and college magazines.

Based on the info above can you please suggest 5 schools that I can apply to once the test is over.

Hi Deepti

You have to select the Schools before the test begins. The other thing regarding the Schools selection is that you have not indicated your preference of Geography, Career Interests, Post-MBA goals etc., so I think it's very difficult to suggest schools with no such information. In fact you should research a bit and then go for your choices as doing so can save you some Money (i.e. the cost of sending Scores to five B-Schools).

Regards,
Subhash

Hi Subhash,

I am looking to apply to schools in the US and ISB in India. As for MBA I want to specialize in HR or Marketing (more preference to HR). As of now all I know are the schools that are listed in the top 20-30 lists. And based on my practice tests I am getting 700. I dont know where to start my research. Any help from someone who is aware would be useful :) I would basically like a sample list of 5 universities( based on my profile info so far i.e gmat 700 and work ex 2 yrs) that I can atleast start researching on. Hope you can help. Thanks :)

To be honest, I'm not an Admission Consultant myself, so this is as far as I can go with my B-Schools suggestion :). Why don't you post this query of yours in the various profile-evaluation forums/threads, to do so, scroll downwards while reading this post and you'll see the headlines as "B-School selection advice" from various Admission Consultants. You can post a mini-profile of yours in those forums and you'll receive replies from experts.

Your grades in high school, 11th and 12th classes do not matter for admission to B schools.

The five schools you select before the test starts receive your scores. If you have a pretty good idea of what you want to do after an MBA, you should select those schools which will be a good fit for your career goals and where you stand a realistic chance of being accepted. I think it costs approx 30 USD to send additional score reports to each school. You can do the math and see how much you end up saving if you choose your schools wisely.

As already suggested, you can post your academic profile, professional experience details, extra-curricular involvement and post-MBA goals on the Peer Review and "Ask Admissions Consultants" forums and see what advice you get. I don't believe HR is considered a concentration in the US, but marketing is a common post-MBA function. You might want to take a look at this to get started: http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandr ... g-rankings

University of Wisconsin-Madison and Indiana-Kelley are considered good schools outside the top-15 for marketing.

Good luck!
