Please Evaluate my Profile: GRE | 2 Year Work Experience [#permalink] New post 02 Sep 2013, 09:20
Hi,
I am 23 year old Indian, working at one of the top semiconductor companies in a technical position. I am planning to apply for Fall 2014 MBA programs.
I intend to work at my current position until July next year, earning myself 2 years of work experience before I attend any program. My work deals with design of semiconductor products which later go into consumer products. Apart from full time experience, I have couple of internships to add to.
I have scored 324 in GRE (equivalent to 710 GMAT). I have CGPA of 8.45/10 (relative grading) from a non-IIT college. I have achieved 87.4% in my 10th and 84.3% in my 12th.
Extra-curricular activities: I started a tech blog along with my classmate which we continue to maintain even now. I was on executive council of our college IEEE Student Branch and continue to be part of IEEE. I was also part of the college quiz club. I continue to be part of the quizzing team at my workplace.

Reason for MBA: Career change. I want to shift towards family business in realty sector.
Area of interest: General Management/ Entrepreneurship & Family Business

Applying to: Sloan, Kellogg, Ross, Kenan-Flagler, Tepper, Carey(ASU).

Please comment on my profile and point towards areas to improve in my application. Also, suggest if any schools need to be added or dropped.
Thank you.

Hi Jayadeep,

Your profile looks decent but low work ex might be compensated with stellar application essays and especially recommendations so start working on your essays and if you manage to get strong recommendations then you have fair chances for shortlisted b-schools. Your list of b-schools looks a bit ambitious so try to add some realistic and safe schools like Babson College - Olin, USC marshall, Tulane - Freeman which are known for entrepreneurship and similarly for general management you can target Darden, Tuck, Duke. Let me know if you have any questions...

You can also try your chances for top b-schools by using this tool - http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool
