Hi Shalabh,

You have an impressive profile. Target for a score above 740 and half the work of getting an admission into one of the top schools will be done. However you will have to understand the you are among many who are applying to these top schools. You should be working hard toward submitting the best applications essays possible. Do not worry too much about your grades in your project, try getting the best GMAT score possible. If you have already taken the mock tests, you may try out this tool to analyze the chances of B-Schools: http://goo.gl/RZg44t

All the best!!

Thanks a ton for the review. I am quite skeptical about my profile initially, although I am targeting the score of around 740, but since I am starting everything from scratch, there are lots of distractions, given I am a full time employee. I would like to know what else do I need to stress upon apart GMAT scores, towards making it to one of the top B-schools and what all scholarships based on my profile are available? Part or Full? Assume I perform good at GMAT say above 700 on the safer side.

I am planning to attmept my GMAT in mid October, as I am considering ISB and other top Indian B0schools as well given their deadlines are over by November.

Appreciate your inputs, infact elaborative inputs !! :)

Hi Shalabh,

If you are able to get a 740+ score, then the whole application process will be much easier. However exceptional scholarship and optional essays will also give a good chance of getting considered for the scholarship. A detailed profile evaluation would help to shortlist the B-Schools for your profile. Its more about doing the thing you are best at and excelling in the same. This will always give an upper edge to your application and profile. Not to forget, put the essential things in your essays and in an effective manner to the admissions committee. You may analyse the schools here: http://goo.gl/RZg44t

All the best!!
