MBA after Architecture. Please review my profile. [#permalink] New post 26 Aug 2013, 23:09
Hi!

Would be great if you can evaluate my profile.

Indian Male
Age – 28yrs.
GMAT – yet to be given.
Currently filling online application forms and writing application essays.

Education –
Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) from Sir J.J. College of Architecture.
Batch of 2008. GPA – 3.5 – First Class

Master of Architecture (M.Arch) from Texas A&M University.
Batch of 2011. GPA – 3.8

Work Experience –
Full Time – 3.5 yrs
Part Time – 1.25 yrs (although some schools don’t consider this)

Currently working in a well established Architecture firm in Mumbai, for the past 1 year.

Certifications –
LEED Green Associate – certified by The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI).
Licensed Architect – certified by the Council of Architecture (COA), India.

I am looking for a one year full time MBA program, with primary concentration in Entrepreneurship and secondary concentration in Leadership.

Schools that I am planning to apply –
1. INSEAD
2. Cornell Johnson (Dual Degree)
3. IMD
4. ISB
5. Kellogg
6. Ivey
7. London Business School.

I am aware that the deadlines are very near and if I don’t achieve a good score I might have to apply for Round 2.

1. Does applying to Round 2 affect my chances of getting an admit?
2. How much score should I aim?
3. I am studying from the Official guide and Manhattan SC. Which other books do you recommend?
4. Any other schools, you recommend, which have one year MBA program?

Thank you for evaluating my profile.

Hey Deepen!

Thanks for dropping by, and sorry for the slight delay there! (I was on the road for two weeks).

Anyhow, let's just jump straight into our business, and get to your questions:

1. Does applying to Round 2 affect my chances of getting an admit?
Yes, a bit. It's a bit easier in R1 in general. plus when you apply R2 you lost eh advantage of having a second round afterwards.

2. How much score should I aim?
Basically as high as you can, but for your school list (which I will write more about later) a 720+

3. I am studying from the Official guide and Manhattan SC. Which other books do you recommend?
I like Manhattan, and so do many others because the tests can often be harder than the actual GMAT.

4. Any other schools, you recommend, which have one year MBA program?
Well, most European programs have one-year programs, so you have many more schools in Europe that you could choose from (Oxford, Cambridge, HEC, IE, etc. ) In the US you have already hit the two schools with the most prestigious one-year programs. You can also look at Marshall, Goizueta and Babson.

For the moment it's a bit hard to evaluate your profile entirely as you do not have your GMAT yet, but let me say that even if you do hit a 720+ your school list might be a bit ambitious - IMD, INSEAD, ISB, LBS might all remain stretches even with a fantastic GMAT (I write might because I don't feel like I fully know your profile - I am esp. missing some detail about your work experience and your goals). So think about that in the meanwhile.... but not too much!!!

Because first you have your GMAT to ace! So go to that, and good luck,

JF
