Linda et al,

My profile: Indian, Female, 27

GMAT: 710 (94%); Q:49 (90%); V:39 (89%)

Education:
Bachelor of Engineering, India (79.13% - First Class w/ distinction)
MS Electrical Engineering, Ohio State Univ (3.1 GPA)

Work Exp:
Sr. Market Development Engr - 2yrs (Fortune 500 company)
Director Product Marketing - 1 yr (Wireless Start up)

Have volunteer experinece with both tech and non-tech non profit organizations.

Interested Schools: McCombs, Kellog, Wharton, Stanford, Harvard & Insead

I was waiting till I got done with my GMAT to decide whether I wanted to apply for fall this year. Now that I got done with my GMAT last week, I am seriously pondering the application process.

Considering that I will be able to apply only for round 3 in all of the schools mentioned above, what are my chances of getting into any of the schools listed above?

If I decide to go ahead and apply this year, I have heard that schools during their round 3 try to balance the over all class profile wrt to diversity etc. So, is that something to be concerned about in my case?

Should I just wait and apply for Fall 2006?

Any insight will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I would recommend that you wait until Fall, especially considering the competitive nature of the schools you want to apply to. You probably would have a decent chance at McCombs third round this year, and possibly Insead, but I think your chances with a 3rd round application would be seriously diminished at the other schools on your list .

I suggest you use the next several months to clarify your goals, visit the schools while they are in session, and take advantage of programs offered through the admissions office. The idea being that as soon as the applications come out, you will be able to start writing.

The only exception to this recomendation would be the schools that provide feedback to rejected applicants, namely Wharton and (I am almost positive) Kellogg. If you would be happy to go to either of those schools, then give their applicationsyour best effort. You might surprise me and get accepted. And if you don't surprise me, at least you can have the benefit of feedback from the adcoms which will put you in better shape for next year.

Good luck!
