Hi all..guidance required [#permalink] New post 31 Jan 2013, 00:08
Hello Friends,
My self Akshay and I am from Patna.I am starting my prep for GMAT but before that I have some doubts and want honest clarification on that.

Please look into my profile and advice:

I have 5.5 yrs of work experience.A perfect IIM-Indian IT male :lol:
Currently working with Bank of America as senior software engineer.
worked 2.5 years for Cognizant then 1 yr for Headstrong.All IT experience no managerial.Working as Mainframe professional.banking and finance is my domain and all these years worked for banking projects only.

I completed my B.tech in computer science and engineering from NIT jalandhar in 2007 with CGPA of 7.4(out of 10).
the main problem and worry for me is I have 4 yrs of gap in between 12th and B.tech,all thanks to IIT prep and stupid careless nature :(

Now I want to go for GMAT and want to proceed in Financial field as that was always my area of interest.
But I am worried about my profile and not sure if even I score a decent marks I will be able to get into premier schools(like ISB and IIM,XLRI etc).

Need honest guidance here,
Is my profile is too bad for B-schools in India?
Do I need to score really high to get noticed in Indian schools...what do you think will be safe total for me?or based on my profile its a dream for me?

What all options I have..if not in India then outside

Please guide.
Thanks in advance :)

well, India or outside you will have massive trouble explaining the 4 years gap.

My suggestion will be to talk to a few admission consultants and seek their opinion. here: admission-consultants-124/?fl=menu
Honestly, if you have planned for an MBA, nothing should stop you. Though it will be much tougher as you move to the top tier schools.

Anyhow, you should be aiming for a 720+. IIM is super competitive.
