Hi all,

I am currently preparing for GMAT which I intend to take in May end. I plan to start writing essays in the summer of 2010 for the academic year starting fall 2011.Could you please advise what my are my chances to get into Top 15 MBA Schools.

1) Basic demographic info: Nationality/age/gender,
Indian citizen working in the US/29/Male (will be 30 when I apply)

2) Educational Background: undergrad major, GPA, GMAT score, any grad work you've done

BE, Electrical Engineering 2002: 68%, Rank: 7 out of 33 students
MS, EEE 2006: GPA: 2.98/4
GMAT: planning to give GMAT in May 2010. Hoping to get greater than 700

3) Work experience: what is your current role? Have you had any promotions? What industry do you work in? For how long have you worked?
Employer: I am currently working for a Consulting Company as a Software Developer with System Analyst role Lately I started my interest's in and about business,Consulting with Entreprener Concentration.

4) Extracurriculars: do you participate in any extra-curricular activities? What is your role there? For how long have you been involved?
Other than work, I enjoy giving Review's about Technology Products among my Collegues; say in My Office all the Peers i know there was not anyone who has not Asked me about Product Reviews ranging from Computer to Electronics, hometheatre setup )Cooking, playing Cricket,Volleyball,PingPong.I do Philanthropic Work I always Believe every (every living thing) one in this world should not go to sleep with out having atleast one meal for the day and I Support any organization in this regard.But I do not Want myself being Pompous about it and doing community work just for getting admission into a B-school does not make sense.
5) Short/Long term goals:
After My MBA I would like to work for any Venture Capital Firms or Consulting firms in theTechnology sector,say I would like to grow as a Strategic Consultant to grow businesses.Eventually founding a Successful Organization..

6) Which schools have you considered already? Any on your initial short list?
I am definitely considering any of the top 15 B schools,in the Process of finding more info about these Schools and their Departments.
I want to group my Application Process as
2 Dream bet ( top 5)
3 best bet (top 10)
3 Safe bet (top 15)


Thank you very much to neeravbm ,

First of all,you don't need to give out so much of your personal details.Edit your post to remove the company names.

Your Masters GPA is way too low and your UG is average.You should get atleast 740 to remain competitive considering that you fall in the Indian/IT/Male pool.

It is better if you take some online classes and get A grades.Not mandatory though.

Coming to your work,you just listed out company names without telling what you did and what leadership experiences you had.

ECs are useful to show a different dimension in an applicant.You are already in the tech sector.So providing tech reviews doesn't show anything new about you to the adcom.The issue about your other activity is,you need to pick one org and grab leadership roles.Supporting every other org doesn't add any value to the b-school app.

Bottomline:
Get good GMAT score.
Grab leadership roles at work and outside.

You can try UCLA Extension or UC Berkeley online classes.

Look at basic accounting and finance classes.

Taking classes is not really necessary now.Priority should be placed on getting a good GMAT score and getting leadership roles.

Where you take the classes is upto you.But online classes would be convenient for working people

Hei Class2012,
"Happy New Year hope you get the dream School of your choice my Best wishes for that.."

One more Question you said leadership roles.
I am a Software Contractor, it is not possible that Contractors will be awarded any leadership Roles at my client Place.. but all i can say is i started as Programmer Analyst. Now i am a Senior Software Analyst that is only valid with my Employer not at my Client. What should i do at this Situation.

Leadership doesn't mean just having titles.It is about taking responsibility.Mentoring,taking initiative too count as leadership.

Try grabbing some leadership roles outside of work too.
