Hello,

Please find my comments on individual components of application process

1) GMAT : Your GMAT is on lower side for almost all the schools mentioned by you. You are a part of the most competitive pool (indian engineering male), so you have to pay the price and i think with 670, your chances for the schools are not good. Aim for 720+ (or at least touch 700 mark).

2) Work Ex - Your work ex has a career progression that is good, but you must exhibit in your essay as to how you have been better then the others. Every year hundreds of students with similar background to you apply at these schools, the challenge for you is to prove as to how you are different from the rest of the peers (whether you had some SUPER leadership exposure ? or Whether you grew much faster than rest of the peers at work etc etc )

3) EC - Highlight leadership aspect of your EC in your essays.

4) Schools - If you think that you do not want to take GMAT now, you may take internal test of IE.

Hope this helps

Hmmmm...thought as much.

So what schools do you suggest I apply to? I guess hkust and ie in that list can be retained. Apart from these 2 what other descent schools should I consider (assuming I do not want to give the GMAT again).

Also could you throw more light on the IE internal test?

Hello,

Apart from those mentioned, i can suggest

Asia - HKU, give a try to Nanyang, CEIBS (stretch, but you may try) === Almost all asian b-schools (except ISB and Insead) have limited no of seats. I do not see any school where indian applicants would not be applying :), and when we talk about indian applicants what comes to my mind immediately is -- Engineer and High GMAT score.

I am not disappointing you to apply, but if you apply to the schools, you have to prove that why the school should take you with 670 even if a similar profile applicant has 700+, and you can prove this with your essays.

US - You will have a good chance fo 15-20 (without scholarship), and you may take your chance for schools between (10-15).

IE test - PM me, and i will send you a document for the same.

Hope this helps
