Profile evaluation (4 yrs of experience, no GMAT but GRE) [#permalink] New post 06 Apr 2013, 02:43
Hello Team,

I am totally lost in the forums and not sure if I am posting at the right place for profile evaluation. I am only planning to apply to INSEAD for now.

Profile:


4 years of experience: 3 years with McKinsey in India as Analyst, 1 yr in business development with Halliburton Energy Services (oil and gas) in UK.

Currently based in UK.

Age: 26 yrs
GRE score: 1420/1600 ( Long back I had thought I ll go for MS and had given GRE, the score is still valid).
Nationality : Indian
Education: Computer Science Engineering from one of the top 15 colleges in India but not an IIT.


I am not inclined to go back to consulting and would like to move to a senior BD role in Oil&Gas industry. Quite confused if I should go ahead for January 2014 intake or for July 2014.

Is the GRE score good enough? I know its good for US universities for MS but not sure about its acceptance in MBA courses. Atleast 6 people from my team in McKinsey have already got into INSEAD in last 2 yrs but they went with more experience.


Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Cheers!

Hey there and thanks for dropping a line!

So first of all, I cant tell you exactly if your GRE is good enough without knowing the breakdown, but what is its official equivalent? Something like 690 in the GMAT I guess??

I think that coming from McKinsey you can get into INSEAD with that score, esp. if you have a return job offer. What I would probably do in your place (and of course this is open to debate because I don't yet know enough about your professional or personal circumstances), is apply to INSEAD January. Because anyhow coming from McKinsey and so on, you will have a shot. And if it doesn't work out, then I would think about taking the GMAT and doing a full-on 6+ school application some September.
