GMAT-730. Please help me select b-schools to apply this year [#permalink] New post 18 Sep 2011, 03:12
Hello,
I gave GMAT last month and scored a decent 730(51/38) with 4.0 in AWA. Here is my profile in short:
22 year Indian male. Am a computer engineering graduate (from a very renowned college in India, with a 70% aggregate) working as a software developer in a very well known MNC. I have decent projects from my college time, have a good coding experience and I think I can manage a couple of recommendations, one from my current program manager and another from a college professor of mine.
The main issue that I see with applying for an MBA for batches starting in 2012 is that I do not have a very big work-experience. I have been working from 31st august, 2010- that was about 1 year ago. Which are the top-25 b-schools where I should apply where I have a decent chance of getting in? I really need help on this as application deadlines are nearing very soon.
Any help will be highly appreciated.

For this special category of less than 2 years of work experience, we need to have more detailed information.

Career goals, leadership experience, and extracurriculars.

Also, if your work is very isolated, meaning coding specific features for applications and interacting primarily with other programmers, then you're in trouble in terms of work experience.

On the other hand, if you're someone who acts as a project manager, and you work hand in hand with your customers, defining objectives, drafting solutions, then that's a much richer experience base for MBA programs.

Yes, my work involves mostly coding and interaction with only the other developers in my team :(
I am inclining towards waiting another year and then apply with a better profile.
