Hi,

I am not too sure whether I'll apply for 2014 or 2015. I want to apply this year but probably 2015 would be much better idea as I really want scholarship.
Here is gist of my profile:

Gender: Female
GMAT: 650
GPA= I never calculated my GPA .. really how to convert it??
Anyways, I completed my B.E (IT) from Staffordshire University, UK with First Class Honours. Total Grads=360

Total Work Exp=39 months(July, 2010 to Present)
Accenture Services Pvt Ltd.
Working as a Business Analyst with French Telecom client.
I had exposure to Energy and Gas domain as well.
I have won 2 Awards with Accenture

Extra Curricula Activities and Achievement:
1)Lead CSR activities in Accenture
2) Core member of Vajra - an association for freshers with Accenture
3) Handle Accenture's Avanade Newsletter- design the templates, write and edit the content of the Newsletter
3)Among top 1% students of the University during Graduation
4)Awarded 'ELITE STUDENT' during Graduation
5) Awarded 'Best Student of the school' for 6 years
6) Won Elocution Competitions in the school


I want to apply for top 20 universities. What are the chances for the same?

Hey there.. first of all, it's fantastic that you are thinking about this so far ahead. It will help you a lot in the long run.

So the first two obvious steps if you really want to aim for Top 20 universities:
1. Get at least a 700 on your GMAT (a 720+ is better)
2. Get at least a 105 n your TOEFL

The next important things are to aim for:
1. Leadership
2. Promotions
3. a leadership extra-curricular or volunteer work.

That should keep you busy for a while :)

As for the GPA calculation, you can check out the WES site, but basically when you send in your grades, you send in your Indian grades to the equivalence is really for your own purposes.

Hi, I really really really need to know what is the probability I will end up in an ivy league college?? Here is my score card:

Quant: 48 -- 76 percentile
Verbal: 41 -- 93 percentile
Total: 730 -- 96 percentile

AWA: 4 -- 21 percentile
IR: 4 -- 37 percentile

Would I be handicapped because of this scorecard....

I am a Bachelor of Commerce (H) from Delhi University, Masters in Finance from Department of Financial Studies, Delhi University, Chartered Financial Analyst (USA), Financial Risk Manager (USA) and have five years experience in financial industry..

I am interested only in ivy league and do not want to pursue mba anywhere else..

Will I be able to that with the above scorecard and profile??

I am male from India..

Well, with a 650, Top 10 schools are going to be very challenging. But since you only want to go to top 10 schools, actually your strategy is quite simple - you apply to the top 10 schools that you like, regardless of chances, and if you get in, fantastic! and if you not, you carry on in your industry (in which I assume you are doing well in anyhow).
:)

Not tooooooo bad....
