700 - Israeli IT - 26M [#permalink] New post 03 Jan 2005, 22:53
Hello,
I am an Israeli national looking to apply to B-schools in the US.

I would like to know which schools I have a viable shot of getting in with my statistics. I am aware that a lot is riding on the essays in the applications, yet I am sure that some schools can ride me off due to different things. I am also aware that in a sense, I am competing against other Israelis who are applying to top programs.

Stats:

GMAT: 700 - 47Q 39V (? don't remember exactly the verbal )

GPA - Computer Science CB, a bit low: 3.1 converting 79/100

Work exp.
- 1 year of sales and support experience to the US market (part time)
- 3 years exp. in software programming in 2 Israeli start-ups geared
to the international market (4 upon acceptance to MBA)

- 3 year military service (mandatory) heading 4 soldiers in charge of
finances and canteen in air force base

Volunteering:
- participated in international student festival
- websites for non-profit organizations
-anti drink-drive campaign

Post MBA - looking to work in product management, marketing or strategic consulting, in the hitech or entertainment industry.
NOT i. banking

Thanks in advance

ARe you male or female? Your current work is part-time. Is that by choice? If so, what else are you doing? Isn't a 79/100 quite high by Israeli standards? From what school?

Hi
First off, I am male.

My first work experience was part time, during school (1 year of sales). The rest of my experience is full-time software programming.

My grades are not considered very high - they are slightly higher than average. I was not an honor student. Needless to say, Comp. Science is a difficult degree, plus I was working at the time. There is a definite upward trend through my grades - while my first year grades are pretty low my third year grades are considerably higher.

The school I received my degree from is called the Academic College of Tel Aviv-Jaffa, and is considered a very good school for Computer Science in Israel. I am not sure if it is known outside of Israel, however.

I am leaning towards more west-coast schools as a personal preference but would like to consider all schools.

Thanks for the response
Eyal

Eyal,

Thanks for your response to my query.

Look into UCLA, USC, and Haas on the West Coast. -- perhaps Stanford as a stretch. Also consider Kellogg, Wharton, Duke, Michigan, and CMU.

Good luck!
