GMAT 760(99%), AWA 6 - Profile Evaluation Requested [#permalink] New post 18 Nov 2011, 02:12
Hi

Will be graduating from college next may(2012), and am planning to apply for HBS 2+2 and similar programs at Yale and Stanford.

Basic:
Age-21
Gender-Male
Country- India

GMAT- 760(99%), Q(50), V(42), AWA- 6

Education:
1.College: BITS,Pilani
Major: Electronics & Electrical Engineering
CGPA: 7/10( expected, i still have 1 semester left)

2.10th- 97% (CBSE)
3.12th- 89.6%(CBSE)
4. NTSE scholar( 3000 students are selected across the nation,over 500,000 students participate)

Work Experience(only internships till now)

1. Worked for 6 weeks in the Corporate Finance division of a top(worldwide) consulting firm. Had a project analysing the development of a particular industry sector in India, and also did a Comparable Company Analysis project in the Hotel industry

2.Worked for 6 months in the I-Banking section of a leading Indian Bank. Project included studying the performance of IPOs in the past 5 years.

Extracurriculars:

1. National Level Badminton player, represented my State(Maharashtra) at the National level twice, and also awarded National Level Sports Scholarship twice.

Have been vice-captain of the college badminton team and lead it to gold medal in the all india inter-collegiate sports meet, in BITS and a silver medal in IIT Roorkee

2. Core member of the committee incharge of organsiation of the various aspects of the cultural and technical festivals of the college - scheduling of events, prize money allocation, computing results and declaring winners. Was incharge of evaluating and judging events and also for scheduling of over 70 events.

Other Tests:

Am planning to appear for CFA Lv1 in December 2011, this way my results will be out before the Rd 2 deadlines

Schools:

Am currently looking to apply to HBS,Stanford and Yale for their 2+2 or similar programs( Yale has immediate admission). on the Msc front, am looking to apply to MIT and LSE(UK).

I currently feel that if i get into any of these, i would accept it and if none of them hit, then ill work for a few years and gain experience before i apply again. I wanted to know whether that is a good way of going about things,or should i apply to other colleges as well? And if others, which colleges should i apply to that offer 2+2 or similar courses?

I want to do an MBA in Finance or General Management. I am also considering the Masters in Finance courses in case i dont get into the 2+2 programs so that i can get a basic understanding in the field which will allow me to work in a relevant company before i apply for the MBA again.

I have a few questions:

1.I still want to know MBA wise, how good a chance do i stand(considering my college acads havent been top notch)
2. Is my profile competitive for the programs i have listed?
2. What other 2+2 or similar programs can i apply for?
3. I have had 9 months of work ex with internships, so can i take 2 recommendations from company execs or should i take one from a professor?


Thanks
Sid

While IESE (Young Talent Program) and Indian School of Business (Young Leaders Programme) also offer similar programs for young applicants to MBA programs, they (and HBS's 2+2 and Yale's Silver Scholars) do typically only accept applicants with high GPAs and GMATs. Your GMAT obviously fits that description, but your GPA is not among the top of your class, so it will be more difficult to prove that you are ready for the academics of these programs.
You should choose the recommendations that best highlight what makes you exceptional. If you made exceptional contributions to the companies in your internships, then it makes sense for you to seek recommendations from those. However, in your case, since your academic ability is slightly in question, it would make a lot of sense to submit a letter from a professor - but only if you performed exceptionally well in his/her class.

Hi

Thanks for the reply.

The way things stand now, i realize I'll have to try my best and draw the adcom's attention to stuff like my sports career and my internships rather than my education.

The idea is to apply to them now and hope for the best, i am assuming there is a slight chance of getting through. But if not, ill try again after working for a few years.

As far as reccos are concerned, i think i will go with one prof and one professional one

Thanks a lot
