Hi there,

Thanks for your post. Schools are certainly always looking for qualified female applicants, though there is also generally a very large applicant pool of Indian IT applicants so it's important to work to differentiate for the average applicant in that group (for example, focusing on leadership and communication skills that may be less common among IT/engineers).

The schools you mentioned would likely be within reach, though the closer you are to the average GMAT the better. I would suggest considering taking it again if possible.. schools take the highest score, and if you think you can increase that score (which is usually easier to do with a 650 than a 680/700), then you can improve your acceptance chances greatly. For more on choosing your target schools, check out our free download at: http://info.mbamission.com/Selecting-Yo ... ram-E-Book.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Thanks a lot for the response. I will be giving GMAT again.
Also is there any standard tool through which I can calculate my GPA ?

No problem. As for the GPA, actually admissions offices generally interpret the academic work within the appropriate frameworks from your university and country, so it's not generally recommended that you attempt to translate, but it looks like respectable academic marks!

Thanks .
1 more query. Since I will give GMAT once more I may not be able to submit my application in the second round of applications in a particular B-school that I am actually targeting.
The school doesn't follow rolling admissions.
I am a little concerned that I will be applying to a reduced pool of seats given that the b-school would have offered admission to students who applied in October/November.
Will my chances of getting into that particular b-school decrease if I apply in the 3rd round ?

Hi there-- tough to answer fully without knowing the exact school, deadline, and GMAT date... but keep in mind most schools just require that you've TAKEN the exam by the deadline, as they get the scores electronically.... so perhaps you can still re-take before R2 deadlines?? Round 3 can be challenging, yes as most seats are taken... not entirely hopeless but definitely tough!
