Hi Guys,

Here is my scenario:

52 Months IT experience in reputed firms like TATA, AMEX and KANBAY.

Current designation is CONSULTANT

GMAT Score : 660
(Expecting high essay score - final score yet to arrive)

Did Community service

Worked 2.5 years in US & 1.5 years in India.

Graduated as an Electrical and Electronics Engineer in one of the top 10 schools in India with 77% total aggregate - Honors (toppers percentage :80%)

What are the schools that I should be aiming at ? My target is to enter a reputed school in US that has decent placements and ample financial aid facilities. What are the chances of my entering top 15 ? What should I need to do to improve the chances - should I retake GMAT ?

Aprreciating your help in advance ....

What are you looking to do post-MBA? Which schools you target will depend on that to a large extent.

Also, my comments to other applicants from India (with tech experience) apply to you, too. Think about how you can set yourself apart from the hundreds (thousands, really) of applicants with similar-sounding backgrounds. You probably should give the GMAT another shot, but keep in mind that a 750 GMAT score alone isn't going to be enough to make your application unique.

Hello,

As you well know, you will likely be ascribed to one of the largest demographic groups that applies to MBA programs. Accordingly, you will probably want to receive a higher score on the GMAT to apply to the most selective programs.

If you are interested in IT, I would strongly consider Carnegie Mellon. It is one of the very best schools in IT yet it has somewhat less onerous admissions requirements than many of the elite (general rep) schools.
