A strange story [#permalink] New post 24 Jul 2011, 11:14
Hi friends,

I am a final year B. Tech student of NIT Karnataka Surathkal. I am planning to apply for following programs

Harvard 2+2
yale class of 2014-16
Carnegia Mellon

As I want to have 2 years of work exp before joining B-School these programs will help me on the same.

My video resume is available at ‪Video Resume of Rohit Manglik for ISB YLP Program‬‏ - YouTube . I have my own start up and worked for many projects for Govt of India including AIEEE and DASA projects. I have done internship in IIM-A and worked with World Bank in a project. Rohit Manglik | LinkedIn

My GMAT score is 580 (50Q 19V) and my GPA is 7.10/10.

I am sure I can do considerably well in resume, essays and recommendations, but my academic result is not good. Deadlines are near for some of the above programs. Should I apply them or chuck them.

Can you please suggest similar programs in other b-Schools

I appeared for GMAT few days back and I need to work really hard in Verbal to improve my score which will take a lot of time. I cant reappear for these courses as they are exclusively for students applying in final year.

Can you please tell me other similar programs I can apply to?

Mayday Mayday!!! Need kudos to unlock GMAT Club Tests

In terms of your GPA and GMAT, I would see that HBS is out of the picture, however there is still reason to be optimistic. If you can prove your worth in other aspects of the application via resume and such, then I see no reason why you can't land in a good school. With regards to Canadian schools I'd be aiming at the second tier schools such as McGill, UBC, Calgary. So in comparison to american schools I'd set your sights somewhere in the 25-50 range.

Hope this helps?
