I was an avid reader of Gmatclub and gmatclub helped me keep my sanity over ups and downs during and after the admit! So, some gratuitious homily. Please bear with me :)

Currently I am attending Tuck. During application., I had done decent research about schools, their likings/dislikings and fit ( esp from the perspective of an Indian applying from India).

I understand, fit is kind of ambiguous and especially so when you are located in a remote country and all you have are information from websites. But I planned to attend school with my family and hence fit was of paramount importance to me. I was fortunate enough to visit some campus before applying, which kind of helped me to zero in on schools where my family will be able to fit in. If you do not have some specific career goal, which can be met only in a certain school, I highly encourage you to give good thought on fit ( because in traditional MBA jobs all the good schools will give you more or less same opportunity, I believe).

If any of you have specific questions/ confusions on issues like how to manage/ relocate family as an applicant/student etc , I'd be happy to chip in with my thoughts.

I am planning to apply for Ross. Still need to give my GMAT. I have few questions here. I am from Biotechnology background. I did my MSc Biotech in Andhra University - University Topper.(I was always a topper and have good grades through out my acads.) Later got a good opportunity in IT. I have 5 years experience as a Business analyst. Right now working in a Health Insurance company as a Financial Analyst in Risk Mgmt team. I have done some volunteer work in college and have been raising funds for Old people and orphan kids. Can volunteering in a local Indian temple be counted?

What are my chances for Ross?
How much GMAT is needed?
Will my diversity (Masters in Biotech and career in IT)be a jeopardy?

Thanks,
Vannu.

Fuqua and Ross have a good brand name here. Lot of alum presence too.
Not sure about the other two.

I hate to sound like a broken record...but here i go -

can you share your thoughts on placements/internships for desi's. Also, what has TUCK done to address the concerns of international i.e H1b saga.

First, i am not sure if academic supremacy is the right way of putting it.

I will try to answer in brief.

1. Some schools tend to accept 12 + 3 + CA = 12+4
You will have to goto the individual schools and dig out the info. But the top tier schools do accept it as 12+4 , if those are the schools you are looking at.
2. CFA - This has nothing to do with 12+4. At best, it will be a good value add in your essays.
3. CA Articleship - Not considered as workex in most schools but again it is school specific.

Hope this helps.

I know what CA is, thanks. If, you are one, pls get your spelling of CA right.

Are you a ranker by any chance? That will help. Also, a good GMAT score is needed to show your academic proficiency.

Profile looks good enough for LBS/Wharton. bit of a reach @ Harvard. That being said, no one can predict the execution quality of your application. If you have an ISB admit, I dont think following the similar approach to essays would yield bad results for you. Go for it. Harvard/ wharton dont admit demi gods. They admit humans with extra ordinary execution of their applications.
