Veritas,
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

Dear Aravind,
Yours is a very decent profile. I believe your GMAT score is very less, you certainly need to pump it up. Other than that you lack diversity in your profile, IT is very common applicant pool from India. So be aware of that factor as well.
Good Luck.
Maddy.

Thank you Maddy.

Hopefully this time I would get a good score.
I am aware of the fact that I represent a common applicant pool. But there is little I can do at this stage so trying to give my best.

Thanks
