Business Colleges at GMAT Score 700 and WE 1.5 yr currently [#permalink] New post 04 Nov 2013, 20:57
Hi,

I have got a GMAT score of 700 and my current work experience is 1.5 yrs. I did my Chemical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology(IIT) Madras.

I know my score and experience do not pave way for a top ranked college. But i am hoping my past education could support me.(IIT is the most prestigious college in India and very well renowned in the World as well).
I did my Engineering in Chemical and completed my Minor in Management.
My overall GPA was 7.8( I dont think to get the equivalent on the scale of 4 ,it is to be directly divided by 4. I hv asked my friends who have gone out and it generally comes around 3.5-3.6). During college i had worked for the National Service Scheme(NSS) for 4 months( we taught children,oraganized workshops, visited flood hit places in Bihar). I had been a part of my college sponsorship team,which is responsible for getting sponsors for college festival, for two years. I had been an organizing member for department events( I dont have the certificate for this one, so this can be removed).

Regarding my work experience:

Intern:
L&T CASE- 1 month
ONGC:2 months

Job:
Currently working with Reliance Industries Limited (Oil and Gas Sector)(since Jul-12) . I am a part of the project management group of the company that is responsible for planning future activities and handling of Consultants.

I am aiming for CMU, Duke.

Can someone please suggest some other colleges as well.And do i have a fair shot at the above mentioned colleges.

Regards
Mayank

Mayank-

You may find it challenging to get into Duke with only 1.5 years of WE. Duke is one of those schools where the average is more like 5-6 years, and they will likely view your profile as not quite ready to contribute to the class at the level which will make your being there valuable to your classmates. Better to get a few more years under your belt and apply then. In the meantime, seek out leadership experience and progressively responsible work challenges. Make sure you also engage in your community and try to have continued meaningful impact on your organization and also your community.
