Confused about the colleges [#permalink] New post 02 Aug 2005, 04:53
Hi.
I want to pursue full time MBA in a US College starting fall 2006. I am totally confused about the colleges that I should choose. Can you please let me know about the B-schools (in top 50) where my profile will be competitive? Please find my profile below

Age: 23

Nationality: Indian

GMAT: 710(Q50/V35)

TOEFL: 227-283

Education: Completed my Electrical Engineering in 2003 from a reputed Indian Engineering college. Got 68% in my degree examination (There was no GPA system in our college)

Work experience: 2 years fulltime IT consulting experience now (will be 3 years by the time I join a B-school). Working in a reputed US based consulting firm now (Among the top 10 consulting firms in US).

Career Goals: Want to pursue my career in Financial Domain or Consulting.

Thanks in advance.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

A couple of tips:
1) If you have a 3-year college degree, make sure programs you apply to accept it.

2) Make your goalmuch more specific before you apply.

Look into Columbia, NYU, Chicago, CMU, Duke, Michigan, Tuck, UT, and UNC.

Good luck!

Thanks for the add'l info. You do have a competitive profile for CBS and NYU, but those are very competitive schools and there are many Indian software engineers applying. Applying to more than just those two schools.

Also look into CMU Tepper, Haas, Duke, Michigan, UT Austin, UCLA, Cornell, and UNC.

Good luck!
