hello Everyone,

I would appreciate a profile evaluation. I am having hardtime assessing my chances and determining the schools that I can get in.

Ethinicity : Male Indian 28

Occupation : Software Programmer, 5.5 yrs exp . an individual contributor responsible for development of in-house enterprise reporting tool used by 30K users in a reputed tech company. can obtain letter of recommendation from my director of organisation.

Education : MS in CSE from top 30 university in USA 3.33 GPA
B.Tech (Information Technology) in India 75% from a non-descriptive univ.
Extra Curricular activities: nothing worth mentioning. regularly participated and organised local IT student chapter.

GMAT : 720 (Q 46 71%, V42 96%). (very unusual for an indian candidate to have good verbal score and bad quant score but I am hoping that my engg background will show that quant score is an aberration)

my aim is to do MBA in finance and my target schools are

1. Columbia (Dream)
2. Stern (Dream)
3. Booth (Dream)
4. LBS (Dream)
5. ISB (Reach, I think)
6. McCombs (Reach, I think)

as you can see my choice of schools are way too high in terms of ranking but I really want to get into these schools. my other option is to do MS in Financial Engg (yet to give my GRE) in these schools. My end target is to end up in investment firm either as a portfolio manager or an analyst.

I would appreciate your feedback very much.

Thanks.

Your profile is good in most areas: GPA, GMAT score, work experience. You are hoping to get good recommendations which is good, too. I am assuming you have international experience as well since you came to the US for your MS and are working here since then. Is that right?

Your choice of schools is good. However, you may want to add 1-2 safety schools instead of having 4 dream schools.

The rest depends on your career progression,work accomplishments, your personal and professional attributes ,and most importantly how effectively these are presented in your essays, recommendation letters , and resume.

I hope it helped.
