GMAT : 710 :) || Quant:50-90%ile || Verbal 35--74%ile :( [#permalink] New post 29 Dec 2012, 20:39
Hi ,
I gave my GMAT on the 27th of December 2012 [Friday]. I scored 710 and was pleasantly surprised to get this score.
In my mock tests, I would score either in the 680s or the 690s and was glad that i got more in the GMAT.
By March of 2013, I will complete 4 years of work experience in Tata Consultancy Services.

I am interested in a full time 2 year general MBA . Can the members here please help me / advise me on where my chances are good ?

I am under no illusions and know that I probably do not stand a chance in the top 15(USA) . Besides, I do not have the money required
to join the top 15 anyways.

I was wondering what my chances would be for admissions in good B schools in USA (&/or India, Singapore) as well as possibility for scholarships / assistantships etc ?

How do you think I would fare in , say, McCombs, Scheller, Darden, Carlson or Kenan Flagler ? (I agree it is pretty ambitious... but please help nonetheless). Moreover, I was speaking to one colleague of mine who said that after finishing MBA in US, getting a job is very difficult and the greatest risk is that you take a loan for studies in the US and then are forced to return back to your home country and struggle to repay that dollar loan. I remember him talking about something called as S-T-E-M jobs..and how Management was not a part of this... was not clear what this meant though.. Can anyone throw light on this ?

Regards,
Karan

You may ask this in the Ask Admissions Consultants forum, though your question is very shallow and lacks details.

Your score is fine for HBS or Stanford, frankly. It is about your profile at this point. The score is a pass/fail. It wont' prevent you nor will it keep you.

There are people with 710 who get dinged from a sub-20 school and people with 690 who get into HBS.... the application is key.

According to me, you have a good mix of reach and safe schools in that list.

As suggested by BB, you may want to have a profile review by the admissions consultants, here: ask-admission-consultants-124/?fl=menu

this is the STEM jobs your colleague was talking about: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/STEM_fields
