Profile Evaluation - 10 years Experience [#permalink] New post 02 Jul 2011, 11:14
Hello Alex,

Kindly provide your valuable opinion on my profile.

35 / Male / Indian
Work Exp : Over 11 years of experience in IT (6+ years in project management) and currently working as a Project manager (PMP certified). Also have extensive international exposure of over 6 years in US
GMAT : 570 (AWA 5.0, V 33/66%, Q 36/43%). Will be retaking the exam in Sept & aiming for 700+
TOEFL : Test taken
UG : From top engineering college in India (3.5 GPA)
Extra Curricular : Active voulunteer in helping NGO's and have also led efforts for the same, participated & won in sports events at school/college
Certifications : PMP (Proj mangement) and a number of technical certifications
Interested in : General management/Strategy
Post MBA goal : Business development/Strategy consulting and eventually become an entrepreuner.

I had applied for 5 universities for Fall 2011 & all were rejected. Part of it could be that I applied too late (May - June timeframe) or it could probably have to do with my profile.

I would like to pursue a 1 year or 18 months MBA (not EMBA). So would like to know your valuable suggestions/inputs on,
- Is my age an issue for getting admissions into the schools?
- which US schools do you think I have a realistic chance of gaining admission, asssuming I score 700+ in GMAT

Thanks,
Aravind

You're going to have a tough time getting into any top b-school because of your level of experience -- at your stage in career, a lot of b-schools will be encouraging you to apply to their executive programs, not full-time programs.

In any case, focus on the GMAT first. The score you're aiming for is a huge jump from you last score, so it's not a trivial thing to assume -- your entire attention should be on GMAT prep at this point.

Thank you Alex for your inputs.

I understand that the GMAT score I am aiming for is more but I just studied for 3 weeks with my 1st attempt.
So I know the preparation was not anywhere close to where it has to be. I will plan to invest more time so I get a good score this time around.

Not happy to know that B schools do not favor me for Full time. :-(

Thanks,
Aravind
