Hi,

Please help me understand if i have a realistic chance of making it to a Top 5 US school(with scholarship of around 30-40%) or a Top 20 Global school with my profile. My experience is on the higher side and I am also concerned about fit in some of these programs.

GMAT - 740 Q-48 V-42 IR-7 AWA-4.

I am quite disapointed with AWA 4 since I am usually a good writer but that's what i have for now and I understand that retaking for AWA is not a good use of my time. If an AWA of 5.5 can help my application then I can go ahead and retake but i have read that 4 and above is ok.

Education - BTech - 71.32% Kerala University Computer Science.
CBSE 10- 85% CBSE - 12 - 87%

Work Ex - 8 years of IT experience. Team lead for a 10 member team working on a Niche technology called WCS. All experience is in infosys. Current responsibilities include team utilization, performance management for the team, reporting to the client and higher management and ownership of key deliverables. Technical guidance/direction is given to the team on a need basis and I also get involved in complex technical issues which have a direct impact on the site sales.

International Work Ex - I was in New york for 3 years(2007-2010) working on a trade processing application for a Top US bank in their office . Recent short trips to US for KT related activities/connecting with clients etc.

EC - Part of a spiritual organization as a volunteer. Involved in Organizing exhibitions/fund raising etc for this organization.

Thanks,
Vishnu

Vishnu,

You have a reasonable chance of acceptance in US top schools; the likelihood of a scholarship is harder to assess. Your chances of acceptance + scholarship are greater the lower down you go.

I don't recommend retaking the GMAT.

Best,
Linda
