Hello

I would really appreciate if the experts here can evaluate my profile, thanks.

I am Vaibhav, Indian male, an engineer by qualification but have never worked in IT or engineering related roles.
Below is the snapshot of my profile.

1.5 years - Earlier - Business Head for a retail company and helped them set up a retail sore network
Also worked in strategy consulting, sales and business development with same organisation
2- year full time teaching fellow with a leading NGO, taught full time in a school in a slum community in Mumbai
1.5 years - Global management trainee in worlds biggest sourcing and trading company, worked in India, Hong Kong and China

10th : 70%
12th : 75%
B.Teach : 71%

Companies : Two of them very well known, other 2 relatively unknown
Other work- consultant to another social enterprise, also founder of an international(South Asia) conference series - topic: Peace

Strength : Diverse experience, can actually show a need of academic degree, extensive work as a manager and in leadership positions, leadership initiatives, genuine work experience in non-profit sector

Weakness : Low GMAT score, bad academics
Kindly can you please suggest whether I should re appear for the GMAT and try to improve my score or should I go ahead with this score apply

Would appreciate help, also if I have breached posting rules or there is some other forum on which I should post please do let me know. Thanks.

Vaibhav,

Thanks for your post.

I can't comment on XLRI and the IIMs, but for INSEAD and ISB, you shoudl prepare again and retake the GMAT focusing on the verbal, or change your target schools.

Best,
Linda
