GMAT - 710. Please evaluate my profile [#permalink] New post 20 Jun 2012, 05:02
Hi Brian/Susan,

Please suggest the universities I should apply to based on my profile.

Graduation: Bachelors in Engineering (Information Technology) from Pune University, India. First Class Result.

Work Ex: Working with Ernst & Young in IT Risk and Advisory team for more than 1.5 years. Should be almost 2 years by the time I apply.

GMAT 1: 660 (Q 47, V 34, AW 4.5)

GMAT 2: 710 (Q 47, V 41, AW 5)

I know that with only two years of experience, it is very difficult to get into the top 10 colleges. I am interested in doing MBA in Information Systems( from a good college). Otherwise, I am open to MBA in Finance/Marketing/International Business if I get any of these in a better school.

My location preference is US, Singapore or India.

I want to apply to 6 B Schools at least. Please suggest and bifurcate them into "Dream", "Reach" and "Safe".

Really appreciate any advice from you!

Thanks,
KB

Hello kunalbh19, thanks for your question.

Congrats on raising your GMAT score! Of course, as you probably are already aware, your 710 would not move the needle as much as it would otherwise, given that you come from a highly competitive demographic in the MBA applicant pool.

Your GMAT score will likely open doors at most programs, but it’s your essays that will get you in. As you say, you’re on the light side of experience. Hence, I think your competitiveness will come down to the quality of your leadership experience in and out of work. Can you draw upon “moments” when you truly led: influenced individuals and organizations, drove results, took initiative? If so, you can mitigate your age/level of experience. If not, you may decide to wait a year or two more before applying.

School choice is an incredibly personal decision. I tend to avoid telling candidates where to apply simply because it’s an intensely personal choice that you should make. You will know best which program has:
• Resources that best meets your career needs
• A culture that resonates with your personal style
• Students whom you respect, can relate to, and have fun with!

I encourage all applicants to pound the pavement and talk to students and alumni from your target programs to find the best fit. It’s not easy, I know, but the effort will be worth it in the end, I assure you.

I hope this helps!

Best of luck,
Brian
