5 B Schools to select during the test [#permalink] New post 24 Jun 2011, 05:23
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.

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

Deepti,

Look at this resource - How to select your Target Business schools to see how you should use your profile, career goals, statistic indicators to narrow down and target the business schools to apply!

Hi Deepti,

Very few global schools have HR specialization. The ones we know are HBS, Stanford, Kellogg but those will be very difficult for you to target at the current work ex level.

Top 10-15 US B schools require a solid GMAT score and work ex. Your work ex. is in IT which is most common for Indian applicants. 5-6 years of experience in IT where you would have led team, handled clients and had some international experience would have helped but with two years of experience we see practically no chances with a 700 GMAT score.

If you want to apply this year target a GMAT of 730+ and to have better chances look at schools from 10-30 ranks. You have decent chances at ISB even at 700 because seats have gone up to 770 and the competition is less for female applicants ( in their relative applicant pool).

Hope this helps.
