Hi,
Thank you for reviewing my profile. Any advice you have would be much appreciated

Age: 29 years
Nationality : Indian
Undergrad: Computer Science Engineering, CGPA: 7.18/10
Post Grad: MBA for a very good institute ,
Work Ex - 4 years as an Sales Manager in an IT Company. Good Performance but nothing exceptional.
Extracurriculars: Not very impressive. did some community work and organized quite a few events in college but nothing after that.
GMAT: 770
Others: Cleared all three levels of CFA and both levels of FRM

I am looking for a career in Finance and Banking Industry.

Questions :
1. Considering my high GMAT Score and low GPA, Please suggest a few colleges which would give high weightage to my GMAT Score.
2. Do I stand a chance at H/S/W?
3. What are my chances in other top 20 b-schools ?
4. Which schools to target?
5. Since I already have an MBA degree, will it make my acceptance tougher than usual?
6. Could you suggest a few schools as safe choices ?

Thanks in advance for reviewing my profile and providing much needed guidance.

Hi thinkpadr,

Thanks for posting. Regarding your questions, some MBA programs will take into account that you already have pursued an MBA. I recommend you read this case study of a candidate who pursued a 2nd MBA at MIT Sloan:

Congratulations on your excellent GMAT score. Your numbers indicate that you have the intellect and focus to thrive in a top tier MBA program. Nothing about your story makes me think there is any reason why you cannot be admitted, but nothing stands out telling me why you should be admitted. All of the reasons why a top program would admit you are in the details of your work experience, personal experiences, personality, values and overall story.

I recommend you read this case study of an Indian engineer who was accepted into a top MBA program: http://www.stacyblackman.com/comprehens ... ies/case2/

Regarding recommended programs, are there any programs you are particularly interested in and what are your goals post-graduation?

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
