Hello,

Thanks for sharing your profile. Your GMAT and professional experience are very impressive. Your extracurriculars are certainly unique - I can't say I've ever seen "national level quizmaster' on anyone's resume!

I think that Kellogg, INSEAD and LBS are good target programs for you. Wharton is a definite possibility and you should apply. HBS is a reach but you've got a shot. IMD should be a safer choice, but I'd recommend adding an additional safety school to your list - something like Darden or UCLA, perhaps.

Hope this helps,
Mili

I gave my Gmat test on the 25/09/2012.
got a disastrous score of 570 (q45,v24),IR 8/8, AWA-4.5/6
I'm looking to apply for the MS in financial Engineering/Computational Finance/Information systems.
I'm a B.tech in comp sci. from 2nd tier college in India with 63%.
Do i stand a chance for a admission in the top40 universities in USA...or i should give the test again
Have only scored well in the IR section and many ppl tell m that they wont be considered for applications this year.
Regards

Hello!

Sorry to hear about the GMAT :( It happens to the best of us. I would agree that the IR sections are not going to be heavily weighted this year, so unfortunately your good work there probably won't help much. I will caveat my advice by saying that my expertise is not in masters' programs admissions, but is limited to MBA admissions... but I would say you'd have a much better shot at a top 40 program if you could raise your GMAT score. Again, I am not sure how much those programs weight the GMAT, but in the case of an MBA, I'd advise you to retake the test.

Best of luck!
Mili
