Hi Dreaming,

I think you have a good profile and a few other things work for you (non-IT, Female etc.).

The other factor to consider here is the course fee range to be lower than $100,000. That rules out a majority of top private MBA programs in the US & Europe. You can consider courses in Canada - Rotman, McGills, Queens - or you can also consider NUS/NTU in Singapore. In US you can try state universities such as Washington State University, University of Florida etc. They are cheaper and also offer better chances of getting scholarships.

I hope the information was useful. Feel free to reach out in case you want a more focussed discussion.

Regards,

Anshul

Hi,

You have a good GMAT and a decent CGPA score. ECs look fine. However, if you can position well in application essays and showcase ability to work with others, potential as a leader, maturity, achievements at work place, how an MBA from ABC b-school will help you to achieve your dreams, contribution to the b-school society and professionalism during final interviews, then you will stand a chance in b-school(s). Even your scholarship chances will enhance by submitting strong application essays. Try your chances in b-school(s) by clicking, http://www.apphelp.co.in/Bschool-selection.htm.

To get some more clarity on b-school application process and inputs from top b-school grads, kindly attend the webinar conducted by b-school alumnus. For more information and to register your name, click http://www.apphelp.co.in/apphelp-alumni-sessions.php

Let me know in case of further queries. You may PM your detais for school selection or profile evaluation in length.

Regards
Erina
