Hello,

Thank you for your kind words. It's our pleasure to be of help.

It will be difficult to gain scholarships from top-25 level programs. Your profile is fine for such programs, but gaining scholarships is often easier when applying to schools where your profile is above average or has some very unusual/distinctive aspect. So I'd suggest applying to programs of this level and apply for scholarships, but don't expect them. I’d consider all the programs you mention to be [url=Hello,

First, I should say that it will be difficult to gain scholarships from top-25 level programs. Your profile is fine for such programs, but gaining scholarships is often easier when applying to schools where your profile is above average or has some very unusual/distinctive aspect.

I’d consider all the programs you mention to be very reasonable reaches or on-pars. I’m not sure about your goals, so I suggest selecting from this list based on your goals.

If a scholarship is important and you want warm weather, consider perhaps some schools right around or slightly under the "25" level (depending on the ranking): Georgia Tech/Scheller, Texas A&M/Mays, SMU/Cox, Vanderbilt/Owen, and Rice/Jones.

Dear Accepted,

Really happy to get a free profile evaluation from you.

You have made really valuable points. I definitely take your feedback into my consideration.

I have technical background. I have grown from a team member to Project Lead in a span of 4.6 years by working in the same company.

I am planning to switch my career. Preferably to Consulting.

I got married. So, I may prefer 1 year schools to 2 year schools.

Could you kindly tell me what are my chances to ISB, India and Mannheim, Germany in particular?

Thanks and Regards,

Yamini

Hello Yamini,

Congratulations on your wedding!

I'd consider ISB to be a reasonable reach and Mannheim to be on-par (and therefore a better chance for scholarship) --

Hello,

I'd consider these schools to be high reasonable reaches, assuming you achieve a ~ 720 GMAT, and also assuming you could effectively portray work experience of strong impact and leadership. Good luck!
