-I did my schooling from a small town and then prepared for my college for two years. How severally it will affect my application?
-I hope gap of 2-3 months gap between two jobs does not hurt ? Am I correct ?
-I am aiming college from 4th to 15th rank. How realistic is the aim?
- Any suggestions on the split of High/Medium/Low schools?
-I am thinking about targeting Cornell, Duke, Kellogg, Darden and Yale. Please comment on my chances there
-Coming from highly competitive Indian male engineer pool, should I apply to only 1 or 2 schools in R1 and then rewrite the GMAT before R2
- Though I was quite active in extra-curricular activities during my college days, but I have not done much since then (2007). Will the previous work will be counted or it's only the recent work that does?
Would be great if I could get some help.
Thanks in advance,
