Some of my achievements are

This project was started with a collaboration with TAHDCO, an organisation which is led by Tamil Nadu Government for SC/ST people.

3. Got the most honorary award of our company "IMS best employee of the year 2011-2012" during October 2012 for the success in the project which was mentioned above and also for manipulating and making the team as an organized and as a successful team.

My Negative is two things. My college marks , my total work experience years and Gmat score.

I know the best thing to do now is to prepare for GMAT again and give it another shot. But i dont want to. i need to go for my MBA b sept 2013 becoz of some family issues.

Hi,

Thanks for writing here.

I suggest you retake GMAT. As an Indian applicant and your profile, it will be a big challenge.'

Hope this helps

Hi santhosh!

I know you said you don't want to retake the GMAT at this point, but I agree with OasisGC's recommendation.

A weak GMAT score will not help your cause, especially given the fact that you only seem to have a little over a year of work experience and your undergraduate grades, as you pointed out, are not that strong.

You do seem to be doing quite well in your job. I would suggest you stick it out for a few more years and gain relevant experience with increasing responsibility/accountability to strengthen your candidacy.

You mentioned you need to start schooling by fall 2013 due to family problems -- now I'm not sure that's the best reason to get an MBA... Most schools will ask "Why get an MBA? Why now? And why this school?" I'm not sure how you could go about answering those questions given your current motivation.

Hi Santhosh,

You have an avg. profile & GPA/GMAT. Although wiehtage given to GMAT is no more than 20% on the entire application, but you should have an avg. cut-off range (670-720), so that you are in a position to apply in b-schools. You definitely need to write your GMAT again. I would also suggest you to start your application essays parallel to the GMAT, so that you have enough time for comprehensive preparation. You can try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool

Your negative points can surely make up by submitting a strong application & working hard on the application essays/interviews. I would also suggest you to seek the advice of professional consultants to convert your chances of you application to admission.

Let me know if you have any other concerns. You can even PM me your number to discuss on your profile or selecting b-schools for you.

Cheers!!
Neha
Giving Kudos is a decent way of saying thanks...
