Im santhosh,
I gave a GMAT on oct 26th
my score was
Overall: 580
Quants: 47
Verbal: 23

Working Experience:
Period: June 2011 till present
Company: IMS Learning Resources Pvt Ltd
Designation: Junior Executive – Marketing(from June 2011 to July 2012) / Senior Executive – Marketing (from August 2012 till present)
Some of my achievements are

1. Got Promotion from Junior Executive- Marketing to Senior Executive- Marketing within a year.
2. Implemented a new appreciated and successful project named as " The Known for the Unknown" . This project was started with a collaboration with TAHDCO, an organisation which is led by Tamil Nadu Government for SC/ST people. Though this project was undertaken during the year 2009-2010 was a fiasco , this year made new targets and new innovative ideas to make it a success with my team.
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.

During my school i was the school 4th rank during my final public examinations
Cut-off Score: 259.25/300
-> Was the school green house captain
-> Won 3rd prize in District level Quiz competition.
-> Won prize in Table Tennis.

My GPA according to INDIAN system is 6.1/10
->Won the "TCS Best project award of the year" for my successful project.
->was the placement representative during my 3rd year.
-> was placement Co-ordinator during my final year.

Special Interests:
-> Love to train people.
-> Was a part time faculty , teaching Quantitative ability for the students who wished to do CAT and MAT ( entrance exams in INDIA ) during my college final year.
-> Had a special interest in helping poor people attain their required education . So with the help of TAHDCO implemented a special project for the poor students who wished to carry out their Higher education.

My Negative is two things. My college marks , my total work experience years and Gmat score.
My positives are all the remaining.

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.
Please do guide me in choosing colleges. Im targeting colleges mostly in US.
If possible please do tel me the colleges in three possibilities
1. Clear shot colleges(which i can easily get a call):
2.Colleges which can give a call for my mark and profile:
3. Colleges which are difficult to get into with my score but can give a shot:

Thank you..

Hi Santhosh,

Thanks for reaching out. You seem very aware of your advantages and disadvantages in the application process, so now the next step is positioning you in the best way possible given these challenges. Fortunately for you, the most important factors in MBA admissions in the US are your application essays and recommendations (for example, I have actually worked with an applicant with excellent essays who was admitted to HBS with a 590). You will need to put together some really stellar essays in order to gain admissions to top/second tier schools in the US and ensure that your recommendations are equally superlative. The Stratus Prep team and I would be happy to collaborate with you on these facets of your application.

While you say that you do not want to retake the GMAT, I strongly recommend that you do so even if you can go up 30 or 40 points, (though a score above 650 would ideal). If you are able to commit to private tutoring for even a few weeks, you would likely see a significant change. You can overcome a low undergraduate GPA or a low GMAT score, but it is much more difficult to overcome both, as the schools then have little evidence that you will be able to handle the academic rigors of the MBA. In just ten hours of tutoring, the Stratus Prep team helped a client go from a 560 to a 700 and get into Columbia this year so you can improve significantly.

If you are not able to change your GMAT score, you are likely looking at schools outside the top 50 which I would not recommend as the return on investment may not be sufficient to justify the cost.

If you would like to talk more about GMAT tutoring or MBA Admissions Counseling, I would be happy to assist you. At Stratus Prep we offer one-on-one tutoring and MBA Admissions virtually, and we have clients all over the world, including many in India. Email me at for more information.
