670 Quant 49 and Verbal 31 AWA 3.5 and IR 5

I have a total work experience of 3 years and I am currently in US for last 1.5 years.
I work in IT industry and did my under-graduation from Mumbai University in India with 74% ( considered on a higher side). I was actively involved in extra curricular activities during my graduation: Technical head of college,head of entrepreneurship cell. I would want to pursue a course in general management or entrepreneurship.

Though I am not in direct managerial role but have a good hands on handling project delivery end to end and coordinating among different teams.I am in a direct client facing role and most of my job profile is to do consultation work for client in my related technology and then drive the project to its end both from technical as well as management perspective. I can list out numerous example where in I got to show the leadership skills and that has made a difference to the over all delivery of my company in a positive way. All my projects our client facing and I have regular Knowledge Transition and presentation for clients.

I was promoted with the top ranking among my peers and that is the reason I got the opportunity to be on an onsite role in the first year of my job after graduating which is unusual in our company.I have won awards for best performer among my peer groups.

With regards to my international experience. My role shifted from more technical to managing projects, handling client requirements, provide consultation for the technology I work in, Drive initiatives that makes the existing process efficient and handle end to end delivery and help bring in more work for my company. I was lucky enough to get the opportunities to show my leadership skill at and early stage in my career and have been doing so on regular basis. The driving factor for me be on an client facing role is I managed and delivered a particular project that was long due from our company. That project required to co-ordinate among various team and my work was highly appreciated both by client and our internal leadership. Since then I have delivered many projects.

During my stay here is US I have also enrolled in community services. There is a program called Meals on Wheels. We deliver food to old people once in a week.

Also during my undergraduate course I received scholarship from JRD Tata trust based on my academic performance. I was Technical head for my college and represented college at National Tech Festivals.
I was also the co-founder of Entrepreneurship Cell in my college.

While in high school, I was awarded the Student of the Year award in my 10th Standard for my overall academic results and conduct in school.

Can someone please suggest some top universities for which I might stand a chance for full-time?


Thanks,
Lucky

Hi Lucky,

It sounds like you are a top performer within your organization, and that is great. That said, you fall into the "Indian Male IT professional" category and the bar for admissions in a top program is higher than for candidates outside this demographic. Within this demographic, your professional experience is strong - the client facing role is great, and steady promotions and leadership experience is also great. Academically, you are on the lower side - is there any option to retake the GMAT and improve your score? If so, I would do so. Finally, your extracurricular and community activities are quite weak, which is very common for this demographic. I would suggest you target programs such as Tepper, Fisher, Kelley, Boston University. If you are really interested in entrepreneurship, you could check out Babson. You might consider part time programs at schools like UCLA and UC Berkeley as options as well.

Hope this helps,
Mili

HI Mili,

Thanks for responding.

I dont mind taking the GMAT again to boost my applications but considering I am already late in the game I would like to focus on the applications. What do you suggest ? Can I submit my updated GMAT score post app deadlines ?

Thanks,
Lucky

You can definitely try that approach. It's tough when it's this late, but it's still possible to retake the GMAT and still apply in R2. You'd have to work super hard, but it's possible! You'll have to make the call for yourself as to where and how you spend your time/energy.

All the best,
Mili
