Hello,

With your target GMAT, you would be a viable and credible candidate for your target programs. Both, especially MIT, would be reasonable reaches.

To maximize your chances, make the most of your international experience and your strong professional growth in your essays. And clarify and elaborate on the business interface aspects of your work.

Final tip: make a vivid case for your goals; these goals build on interesting experience, so I believe the whole “story” would be compelling.

Your competition for admission will be tough, so in doing your applications, keep focused on answering the question, “Why should the adcom admit me over other accomplished applicants from my geographic region, industry, function?”

Hi,

Thanks for your evaluation. I have one more question.
I am working hard to get a GMAT score over 720 but at times I feel demotivated :( with people comments "it is almost impossible to get into top schools with low cgpa", what do you say about it? And what do you think about INSEAD match with my profile?

Thanks!

Regards,
Hamza

Hello Hamza,

I was interpreting the GPA similar to the Indian system – where the 72% would actually be very good often (not scaled to US system). If that's wrong and the GPA is simply that low, then it depends on the specifics. Was it upward trending (good) or downward trending (bad)? Did you get decent grades in core quant courses? Etc. the adcoms will view it holistically, not just look at the number. Also, your master’s somewhat mitigates it.

With your target GMAT, Insead would be a reasonable reach. (Keep motivated for that GMAT – it will be behind you soon – and it makes a BIG difference!)
