Hi All,
First and foremost I wanted to thank everyone here at GMAT Club for all their insight and helpful advice.
I have finally worked up the nerve to ask for a profile evaluation. I'm ready to receive my diagnosis (for better or worse) and am looking forward to hearing your opinions.

Nationality: Indian

Work Ex:
28 months of IT experience in top most MNC in India
Starting up a Non-profit organization for teaching children

Under Grad Education:
Computer Science Engg
cumulative gpa: 3.3

GMAT score: 630 Q47 V29

Decent HSc and SSc

Co Curricular
Starting up a non profit ngo for educating children
Active member of university event management
National level swimmer in school
Was a cadet in air force for 2 years


I have shortlisted few schools on my GMAT score

I am a bit skeptical writing my GMAT again. I wish to stay with this score as of now.
If, in any case, I don't get through with any of school. I'll be left with no other option writing GMAT again.

You might be wiser to wait a year and then apply so that you have one more year of work experience. But other than that I think you are choosing your schools realistically given your GPA and GMAT.

Best,
Linda

Hi Linda,

As computers have always been my area of interest. I'd like to be a computer analyst.
If not then an Investment Banker.

Ayush,

You really need a higher GMAT score if you want to get into investment banking.

Michigan State Broad -- competitive
Illinois Urbana Champaign -- stretch
Pennsylvania Smeal -- stretch
Purude Krannert -- competitive
Texas Mays -- stretch
Babson Olin -- safety
Wake Forest -- stretch
Iowa Tippie -- stretch

Best,
Linda
