Hello!

When you're building your resume, be sure to highlight specific achievements in your banking positions. Business schools are more concerned with what you've accomplished than what your responsibilities are, and it's important to address your overall skills rather than just your technical abilities. Focus on your leadership capacity, examples of team coordination, project completion, to show that you can operate in different situations effectively.

Your GMAT score is good, and your Quant score is great. If you feel you can benefit from preparing for the verbal section and that will raise your score, look at your timing to see what you could achieve before application deadlines.

Extracurricular - this is great. It shows that you're concerned about the community and global concerns, and you have a profesional network outside of school and work.

Future plans - also good. You can develop this more in your essays.

I'd recommend broadening your school selection. Tuck and Booth are both great schools, and you want to make sure your search is broad enough, especially since these will be very competitive programs to get in to.

We'd love to talk more about your profile. Let us know what you think!

Hi

Thanks for the reply , I m planning to apply to two colleges only - Tuck and booth this year due to low GMAT score. I am hopeful to retake GMAT and get a higher score but that would mean that I will miss the second deadlines for the colleges.

I just want to know whether it is possible to switch over to PE directly from corporate lending domain after MBA or I need to have a PE experience

I want to work in a PE firm with focus on Infrastructure financing , gain experience in the developed market both in respect of the products/ structuring and the way they operate

In long Term I want to use this experience and networking to start my own NBFC company (also arrange funds) for financing Infrastructure projects in India

I m working with state bank of India for past 5 yrs promoted twice , handled a portfolio of around USD 500 mn , have a team handling experience of about a year and a half before that I use to work in Merchant navy , left it due to future prospects


thanks

Good, that you have a plan for the GMAT and b-school in general given that you feel you could do better and the second round is approaching quickly.

As for moving into PE, that's entirely up to you. You should focus on the programs that have shown the ability to land its students with PE roles after graduation, of course, but many people use the MBA as a means to change career paths. If you know you want to work in PE, then you can select an internship and network with professionals in that field to start building a network while you're still in school. Of course it takes a bit more effort, but there's absolutely no reason you can't take the general experience you've gained from institutional lending (client interaction, team building, analytical skills, etc.) and apply them in a different industry.
