I am worried about my low GMAT score but it will be difficult to retake it again .The years of work experience is not as per the average of 3-5 years
but I personally feel spending 3.5 years as an article assistant and then working as an full time employee for 27 months in the same firm is sufficient .

I will appreciate if you could provide me with some B schools I can target. My preference is US .
I am confused regarding some colleges so I am providing you with the full list.

1.) UCLA
2.) Ross
3.) Darden
4.) Fuqua
5.) Cornell
6.) Tuck
7.) UC Davis
8.) Stern
9.) Tepper

Long list :-D Please let me know if I can aim for any other colleges.

Thank you for your time. appreciate it. :-D

Hello,

Sorry for the delayed response. Seems like you've done well but if I'm understanding correctly, you've been working in your family company from the start. This is ok, but may make you slightly less competitive than others. It's good that you are not coming from an IT background - that is an advantage! The challenge with CA careers is that you have less opportunity to lead/manage large scale teams/projects, which is something top schools like to see.

Academics are ok - your scores seem low from undergrad, but if that is first division for your program, then it should be ok. Your GMAT is decent, but would love to see it be slightly higher.

Looks like you are actively involved in the community and with your alumni association, so that is good.

I'd probably suggest taking Michigan, Duke and Tuck off your list - these are probably stretch schools. I might also add another safer program (similar to UC Davis) to your list - something like UT Austin or something like that.

Best of luck,
Mili
