Hello,

I am done with my GMAT and planing to apply this fall. My target schools are these 3 European schools. LBS, IMD, INSEAD. If I do plan to apply to some US schools do you suggest any?

1. GMAT 730, Q 50, V 39, AWA 5.5, IR 5 : I missed 2 question in IR and ended up with a 5.

2. Masters degree from Duke Univ (MEM):

3. Undergrad from NIT India: GPA 7.5/10

3. 4 years of work ex as of today (all in the US)
1st year worked in a power-system startup. Took up leadership work roles during my stint there.
Last 3 years working in the telecom industry. Have been promoted twice. Undertake a lot of client facing and leadership roles.

4. I am quite passionate about language learning. Speak conversational French/Arabic. Contribute a lot on peer-language learning websites. But I dont have any volunteering experiences.

Thank you for your feedback/advice.

Washi-

In a way it's a shame you are not more involved in your community outside work or with volunteering, since it seems to be the only thing missing from an otherwise great profile. Schools will count your work experience all the way up to matriculation for tabulation purposes, so you will be applying with five years of experience on the record. Of course they can only evaluate you on what you have achieved already, so it's good you have leadership experience, and international exposure. Duke is a shadow ivy school, so it will play very well with adcoms from any school in the top 10. I would encourage you to do some research and then visit and chat with alumni in your target schools before deciding which in the US you might apply to. Ultimately it's advisable to go to school in a region where you are planning to work and build a career, since b-school networks can sometimes be pretty close to the school itself. THis rule of thumb of course would be trumped by the super elite schools, who have far-flung alumni the world over. Let us know if we can help you draw out your story. We provide free profile assessments on the phone as well, so I hope you will take advantage of that by giving us a call. We promise not to give you the hard sell!
