Gmat 540(Q44, V21) with Entrepreneurial Experience [#permalink] New post 13 Aug 2013, 09:43
Hello,

I would appreciate if you anyone here could help me shortlisting universities for the below profile:

GMAT 540(44,21)

BE (Computer science, Pune University, 2010 passout)- First class with distinction. I guess the GPA should be 3.6.

Profile:
Co Founder of web hosting firm established in 2006 named Lacehost web solutions which is presently 14th in India according to market share in hosting segment.

Converted it into Private Ltd firm named Leapswitch Networks pvt ltd in 2011.

Acquisition of 2 web hosting companies(New zealand based and German based)

Sub brands: Switchseo.com(Seo Hosting brand), Lacehost web solutions(Shared hosting brand),
whynotavps.com(German company acquired), wachahost.com(New Zealand company acquired)


Roles & Responsibilities
-Management of Business Development & Marketing
-Customer Relationship Management for maintaining long term association with present clients.
-Customer Negotiations & Contracts
-Management of Sales for CentralCP(Product to manage & analyze cpanel servers)
-Sales Pipeline management for Lacehost(Shared hosting brand), Switchseo.com(Seohosting brand), whynotavps.com(VPS hosting brand), wachahost(another new zealand hosting brand) Leapswitch Networks(our parent brand for all the above)

Here are some of my questions:
I am looking for specialization in Marketing? With the above score which universities are safe to apply in the first round?

How differently do you think I should portray my profile to increase of my chances of getting in?

I want to get into marketing/consultancy post MBA. Which universities will be good for me to achieve my goal (please let me know ambitious as well as mediocre universities depending on my score)?

What are the factors I should consider while selecting the universities as my score too is low?

I would be glad if you could assist me with your advice. Looking forward to hear from you soon.


Thanks & Regards,

I'm not going to shotlist any universities. I thought i would say, the adcom would think that since you just graduated in 2010, what is the rush? Why can't this candidate take some time to gain experience, while pushing his GMAT score up?

I appreciate you prompt response. But by the time I get admitted, I will be having 4 years of experience. I think that should be enough right?
Actually talking about experience, I have formed my company in 2006 itself. In all considering my college days experience, the total comes to 6. Please let me know your insights on this.

The four years of experience is fair, i mean, good enough. If you end applying with that 540 score, it is going to hurt your application, a lot, no matter which program you apply to. My advice is, re-take the GMAT, two or more times until you are clear of the 670 hurdle. I say this because, although the adcoms etc say the GMAT is just part of the application, the truth is that it is everything to some schools. With my 630 last cycle, i got burnt . Which is why i'm open to taking the GMAT five times this cycle.

Hey. Thank you for your feedback. Can you please provide me with insights of Babson and Thunderbird.Personally I have time constraints for GMAT preparation as I am loaded with work for most of the time. I would appreciate if you could assist me in working more on the essays which would portray more about my work and less about my score. Would be glad if you could do that

Of course we can help you with your essays! But I do want to be straightforward with you. Babson's average GMAT is 630 and Thunderbird's is 600, so that makes you a long-shot at both schools. If you are STILL determined to apply against the odds, sure why not? It's a brave thing. But still, a higher GMAT might open a LOT more doors for you.
