Admission Advice Urgent Please [#permalink] New post 13 Jul 2013, 16:22
Hi Experts,

Can please advice me and suggest me if I am suitable for the business school I am applying for?

I was born in India and Now an Australian Citizen since 2008. I have been living in Australia since 2005. I am 30 years Old.

Education: I did Bachelors in Electronics and Telecommunication in 2004 from C.R.S.C.E, Which was a very reputed and highly competitive engineering college in north india and not that is a deemed university. Then I came to australia and did MASTERS in microelectronics from LATROBE university, which is again very reputed university and specially the course was very difficult. I scored 70% in masters and 67% in bachelors. I have also done ADVANCED DIPLOMA in marketing from TAFE australia recently.

Work experience: I have been working in managerial position since 2005. I have worked as a Team Leader, Channel Manager, Business Development Manager and Now as a Sales and Marketing Manager. I have total of 8 years+ experience all in sales and marketing and all in australia. My Directors and managers are extremely happy with me and ready to support me in my MBA with any kind of assistance.

GMAT SCORE: I have achieved a GMAT score of 680 and I am applying for AGSM( sydney) and MBS( melbourne). Please suggest me if there is any other good school which will accept me. What are my chances of getting into AGSM and if I get selected what are the chances for scholarship. Please advice. I have heard from their staff that they encourage local students so it might be a little advantage I am assuming.

I would highly appreciate all your help.

Thanking You

i think those 2 schools make the most sense in terms residence/loans/relocation/etc.
They are also well known international schools with many partner schools (if you want to do a study abroad)

Since there are not that many internationally well know bschools in Australian, these make the best choice.
You can also consider other asian schools i.e. HKUST, CEIBS, NTU, NUS if you are interested - all should be within reach.

Another thing I would like to add here is that the school can give you best advice. You should visit the two schools - take a tour, meet the adcom, the students, get in touch with the faculty etc. People in the school will be able to guide you better about your chances and how you may align your profile according to their requirement (in case something is needed).

Thank you for the reply BB.

Can you please advice me as you are an expert and know about the gmat admission more than anyone here. What are my chances with 8 years work ex and 680 gmat score. As MBS median score is 650 and AGSM median score is 660. But my gmat score is above the both college's gmat median. Will it matter much if i take another gmat and score 700? will my chances get better or it will be same as both the scores (680 or 700) are above their median and my work ex is above their average candidate. I don't want to miss it as I have already postponed it once. Loan is another big thing which I am considering as Australian government gives loan to citizens so I want to choose one of these.

Please advice.
Thanks
