Hello maheshsrini, thanks for your question.

I have to admit that I am not familiar with the GMAT standards of those programs. I will say, though, that given that you come from a highly competitive demographic in the MBA applicant pool, your quants – GMAT and GPA – would not move the needle as much as they would otherwise. Look up the medians and means of those programs; you will aim to be north of those marks.

Generally, I would also advise differentiating yourself from your demographic. Computer Science doesn’t give you much latitude in this respect, but perhaps you could play up your volunteer work teaching kids.

Best of luck,

Brian Eng
Senior Consultant
