710 in GMAT- Need your Expert Advice [#permalink] New post 08 May 2005, 10:08
Hi

Recently I took my GMAT and I was able to secure 710(Q49, V38). I would like to take this oppurtunity to thank all the members of the GMAT club especially Paul, Hong Hu, Gayathri, Nocillis, Praetorian,Ywilfred and Praveen Rao.

BackGround

I am a 32 year Old Software professional from India with Close to 10 years of work experience. My experience spans across various industries (Manufacturing, Electronics, Finance) and geographies( EMEA, North America)

Currently I am consulting for one the largest Computer manufacturing companies headquartered in the Sanfrancisco Bay Area. I have been leading teams of developers and doing Project Management for the last 6 years

Extra curricular

I am actively involved with a non profit organization that concentrates on provding education to under prvileged children in India

I have also represented/organized various inter collegiate cultural/sports events in my college.

Concerns

I hold a Engineering Degree in Instrumentation and my academic record is very mediocre

Based on the information I have gathered from this forum I have enrolled in a couple of Finance/Accounting related courses in UC Berkley extention to strengthen my Application

Objective

Considering the oppurtunity costs , I have decided to apply for Part time / Executive MBA programs only ( Geography is not a barrier, I can move if the school is in a Metro like LA or Chicago or NY)

Currently I have identified the following Programs that I am interested in

HAAS ( UC Berkeley)
Wharton West San Francisco (Executive MBA)
Kellogs ( Evening MBA)
University Of Chicago - GSB (Evening MBA)
Stern- NYU (Evening Program)
Anderson - UCLA - (Evening Program)

Questions

What are my realistic chances of getting admission in the school mentioned above.

What can I do to strengthen my application

Are there any other Part time prgrams that I Can apply to


Please Advise

You have chosen your schools well. Taking the classes was a good idea. With good essays, recs, and interviews, your chances in the part-time programs you listed are excellent. The EMBA programs tend to prefer candidates with a little more experience than you have, but acceptance isn't impossible.

What you can do:
* REsearch (and visit) the schools so you will be better able to articulate why you want to attend them.
* Try to assume leadership roles in the organization helping Indian children.

Good luck![/list]

Hi Linda ,
Thank you very much for taking the time and addressing my concerns. I feel a lot better about my choices after reading your recommendations


Hi OACM
I spoke to a person from the admissions office and she asked me to look at the courses offered under "MBA Foundation Concentration". The courses under this concentration are designed for people who want to strengthen their MBA application and also for people with noo prior business experience. Based on the selections you make and the University you choose to pursue, you can waive some of the required courses when you join MBA

I also requested a couple of my friends ,who are MBA students ,to validate the courses offered by UC Berkeley Extsn.They felt that the content of some of the courses (e.g Introduction to Finance) was good

Hope this helps

Good luck with your apps

Best Regards
