Hello Everyone,

I need a frank opinion on whether should I apply for the top 15 univs in US. My profile :

GMAT : 1st attempt in October 2011 : 680; Q 48, V35
2nd attempt in June 2012 : 740; Q 49, V42

Work Ex : 5 yrs experience with Siemens Power Engg Ltd. as a Mechanical Turbine design engineer. I can show a decent (not extravagant) progress and professional achievements. But I do not have any international professional experience or exposure.

Education (Weakest area of my profile) : B.Tech : CGPA : 6.03 on 10. I can show plenty of extracurricular in college.
12 th : 72%; 10th : 70.2%

Other achievements : Member of winning team of the Space settlement design competition at Kennedy Space Centre, Florida in 2004.
Cleared CFA Level-1 in June 2011.
I've filed for a patent.

Pls let me know your frank opinion regarding my chances at the top 15 American univs. Also I would appreciate any suggestions on some good univs across the globe within my reach. I will also be trying for ISB and any suggestions from you guys for ISB would be most appreciated.

Thanks !

Hello,

You surely stand a good chance for the programs mentioned by you. A few points :

1) The schools mentioned by you are too competitive (especially considering your academic background), so you are bound to face a stiff competition. You must be able to present your candidature UNIQUE from rest of the peer group with the same academic background. One good point that will help you to differentiate is your team leading role. You should surely share some great team leading stories and believe me, you will come out to be unique.

Second aspect where i see you differentiating yourself is your exposure to entrepreneurship. Do highlight the same, and its good to see that your short term goal is in tandem with your experience.

2) Are you still involved with the EC that you have mentioned ? if not then, i think you have fair chance here to improve your profile. Get involved with an EC that can help you develop some leadership skills, and can also help you share some unique stories.

All applicants who apply to b-schools are smart, but those who PROVE that they are smart get in. So, PROVE that you are SMARTER than others in your stories of essays.

Hope this helps, sorry for delay in my reply

All the BEst
