No clue what is going wrong.... (Profile Eval) [#permalink] New post 19 Feb 2011, 22:34
Hello,

I am a 25 yr old from India. I work in the (no points for guessing) IT sector as a Business Analyst.(3 yrs in Jun)
I have a GMAT score of 780 (5.0). A GPA of 7.3/10.0 @ a top engineering institute, which translates to 2.3 on the GMAT scale (while I think it deserves more).

In the 2010 season, I applied to Booth and Ross in R2. Booth handed me an interview invite. I was denied admission to both.
In the 2011 season, I applied to Columbia, Haas and Kellogg in R2. Ding w/o interview at Columbia. Waiting on Haas and Kellogg - pretty late now.

The real question I want to pose to you guys is : Am I aiming too high? If so, what can I do with my profile to more align with these schools?

While the schools would love to accept you for that high GMAT, it just isn't enough if you cannot prove that you have interpersonal and leadership skills. You'll need to demonstrate that you can make an impact beyond your IT team. Find ways to make strategic impacts on the company and the community to prove that you are ready for the MBA.

High GMAT score isn't enough to get into top B-schools, particularly for an Indian male with Engineering background.
THere are hundreds of applicants with a similar profile looking for an admit at these schools. Some thing exceptional is needed to set you apart from these tons of other applicants with a similar profile.
Your less than 3 years expereince is also a negative.
CMU, Goetza and Darden probably value high GMAT scores a lot more than many other schools.
