Profile Evaluation - 7yrs work ex. [#permalink] New post 08 Dec 2011, 00:11
Dear Linda/Jennifer,
Kindly evaluate my profile.

Background: 29 Years Old/Male/Indian
GMAT- 650/5.0 (Quant: 48, Verbal: 32)

Undergrad: Bachelor of Technology, Electrical Engineer from a top engineering college in India. (Score: 75%). GPA: 3.75/4.00 (Calculated using WES GPA calculator)

Work Profile: I am a technology consultant in one of the Big three online travel agencies in the world and have more than 7 years of full time experience (close to 3 years of international experience in the US). I have been consistently promoted at work and have won several other accolades. I am also expecting very strong recommendations from my international clients.

Extracurricular Activities: I was a member of the student’s government during my undergrad. And have undertaken other administrative activities. One of the most prominent one was opening a club in an area of my interest and administering 120 interested members. I carried that interest forward during my work life. I have some non profit experience too which is also linked to my long term goal.

Goal: I plan to use my technical expertise and open an education based consultancy in India.

Here is my question: -
Schools I am considering to apply this year in the second round: Ross, Darden, Kellogg, Duke, McCombs, Kenan-Flagler.
I would appreciate if you can help me know my chances are for the above schools. Do you have any other suggestions?
Thanks,
RM

I can't tell from your description of your role as technology consultant just how much strategic leadership is involved in your work, so I can't comment on that element of your candidacy. However, I can tell you that your GMAT is low for the programs you mention here. All of these programs have GMAT averages much higher than yours (Ross 703, Darden 701, Kellogg 714, Duke 698, McCombs 692, and Kenan-Flagler 698), and typically Indian applicants (since there are so many of them) need to exceed those averages to be in the running.
