Hello,

Greetings!

Degree:
I graduated as Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) in Civil Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay, which is a premier institute of technical education in India, with a GPA of 7.80/10 in August 2009.

Academic Project:
I carried out secondary research in the field of Disaster Management between December 2006 and April 2007 and compiled my findings in an article that was published in 'Disaster Education' journal produced by Buildings Research Institute and GRIPS, Japan in association with United Nations.

International Experience:
I did my summer internship in Transportation Engineering/Urban Planning at Switzerland's leading university, Ecole Polytechnique Federale De Lausanne (EPFL) between May and July, 2008.

Entrepreneurship:
Highly interested in entrepreneurial activities, I took part in two business plan (b-plans) competitions - an international one, in which my my idea stood among top-40 out of total 500 ideas received from across the globe and was selected for mentoring, and a national (India) one, in which my team emerged victorious.

Work experience:
I have been working with Russell Reynolds Associates, a global executive search firm, since March 2010. This stint has provided me several opportunities to get networked with a number of highly successful leaders across industries in India and understand decisions involved in building a strong top-management team.

Social Activities:
I hold a very strong belief in giving back to the community - I took an independent leadership in raising INR 116,000 for 'Anti-Child Sex Abuse' campaign that was held in 6 cities of Western India.
Secondly, as a part of the 'Anti-Child Labor Group' at Child Rights and You (CRY), an NGO, I motivated 10 families from an extremely remote locality to send their children to school, subsequently coordinated with several teachers and education officers at a school in the vicinity of the locality and finally succeeded in bringing about 20 children aged between 6 and 15 years into the mainstream education.

Target Colleges: HBS, Stanford GSB, Wharton, Kellogg, Columbia, Chicago Booth and MIT Sloan

Please evaluate my profile and suggest whether I should retake the GMAT?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Many thanks,

Best regards,
Yash Singh

Sorry I forgot to include my GMAT score in my earlier post. I took the GMAT in July 2009 and my score was 690.

Thanks,
Yash

Expert's post
Overall you seem to have a strong profile. You have a few points in your profile that you should really push to make yourself stand out among Indian candidates, especially having IIT as an Alma Mater, having worked in non technical industry (well highly technical, but not IT), and entrepreneurship and very nice community stuff. (although for the entrepreneurship what would be better even than winning a competition would be what you did with your idea).

So you have good stuff, but unfortunately your GMAT is a bit low, especially for a candidate coming from India. Unfortunately (or Fortunately) Indians are very clever ;) and score VERY well on their GMAT, which means that you will be going up "against" folks who have 720s, 740s, even 770s. And at this point you have time, so you need to get the most advantage you can. If you think you can reasonably score higher, I'd suggest retaking the GMAT. Because even 30 points higher can make a difference, and more would make even more of a difference.

Hope this helps!!!
