Hey ramaswamibalaji,

Thanks for reaching out to me. So you want to know "what are my chances?" At a high-level, admissions committee are looking to see how you address this simple equation: Your Work Experience + Your Personal Passions + MBA Program + MBA Skill Set = Your Career Goals. Admissions committees evaluate this qualitative equation in conjunction with quantitative measures such as GMAT and GPA. How each variable is weighted is up to each admissions committee. Thus, the components above are what make up the "bar". How well an applicant addresses this equation will determine acceptance or denial.

All the above being said, what are your goals? It would really help shed light on the whole equation I stated above. I always like to say that an MBA is a bridge to your future goals - so what are your short and longer term goals? Remember that your current experiences need to (in some way) support these goals (along with an MBA.)

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
