Profile Evaluation - 10+ years experience [#permalink] New post 02 Jul 2011, 11:28
Hello Linda/Jennifer
Kindly provide me 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 (Cox,A&M,Notre Dame & 2 other schools) 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

Hi, Aravind. Since you graduated so long ago, the school/college sports involvement is going to be less relevant. You will need to demonstrate more recent active involvement. If you can demonstrate that you have significant management roles - with large teams and budgets - then you may be able to earn a place in the few full-time one-year programs in the US: Stanford Sloan Masters and MIT Sloan Fellows. If your profile does not reflect that significant level of influence, then you still may stand a chance at USC's IBEAR program. Since yes, your age and years of experience do not make you a good fit with the traditional MBA programs (like Cox, A&M, ND, etc.), then your chances of acceptance there are low. However, part-time programs may be a good fit if you are placed in the US for your work.
