Can someone please evaluate my profile [#permalink] New post 30 Apr 2011, 20:04
Here is my profile

Female/ India/ 26
I have 4 years of experience in IT industry with 3 Big companies in this industry and mostly as a developer only.
Undergraduate Score - 76%
GMAT 1st attempt in 2011 - 580
GMAT 2nd attempt in 2011 - 650
Why i want to do MBA is because I don't want to do coding anymore and want to be in a managerial position in IT industry itself. I don't have adequate knowledge and experience about Project Management and I believe that doing MBA from a good business school can help me to fulfill my goal.

I want to get into University of Davis or University of Irvine or else Santa Clara university (this is my last option). I am going to apply for this Fall session only. Can someone please suggest me that what are my chances to get into these universities.

I think that as long as you put in a strong application for davis and irvine, you should have a fairly good chance to get in (write great essays to answer the prompts and ace the interview). Currently, your GMAT score is probably the biggest handicap, given the fact that you're an international student. While Irvine's average is probably 660-ish, Davis is inching closer to 700, with the most recent published data of 684(?). With that said, you're 650 is not far off, which leads me to believe that you should have a shot, as long as you can convince the AdComs why you need this, why you need this now, and how your skills are transferable to your post-MBA goals.

Oh no no, I didn't mean or say that your reasons are not convincing enough. I simply wanted to make a point that you need to be able to address your reasonings convincingly to the AdComs.
