Profile Evaluation - a 30yr+ Indian IT Male 730 (Q49/V40). [#permalink] New post 18 Sep 2013, 06:58
I am a prospective Class of 2016 applicant for the full-time program. I am interested in the Full-time program so i can switch my
career into strategy consulting. I fully understand how important an internship is for career-switchers.

Basics:
A 34 year young indian male working in ERP System Implementation(IT) in USA. (will be 35 @ matriculation & 37 at graduation).

GMAT: 730 (Q49, V40, AWA 4, IR 8) (3rd Attempt) 640 (Q47/V32) in both my earlier attempts.
GPA: 70% - Instrumentation Engineering. (From a non-IIT University)

Work Experience: 12+ yrs
Finance System Implementation lead in multiple projects with some highly recognizable companies in many sectors. (FMCG/Energy/Telecom/Leasing)
Led the finance IT team in merging two businesses of a Global FMCG Company.
Architecting the systems/process implementation for retail stores (US & UK) for branded items of a Global FMCG Company.
Offshored the application support operations (1.5M revenue from project) of a GE Capital leasing unit and led a team of 12 people.
Integrated the energy trading applications of global energy major with NYMEX for trade execution/settlement.

Extracurricular activities:
Manage a growing portfolio of single-family real estate properties for my family.
Volunteer for Habitat For Humanity.
A failed SaaS venture in the past.
Led a team of 10 students in the Literacy awareness campaigns during my undergrad. We imparted basic literacy skills to economically
underprivileged women who were working as daily agricultural labor. The training program was conducted in the evenings to ensure their
livelihood is not affected.

ST/LT Goals : Work in the strategy consulting for 2-4 years Post-MBA and transition into a general management role and grow in
the organization. Prefer to move to the south/south west after MBA. School location is not much of a concern. Support to young family is also a consideration. (Wife & a 15 months old son)

Target Schools:
Tuck (EA) - Love this school. Small class-size, in the woods, heavy General Management focus, and very strong into Consulting & Finance.
Duke (Rd1)
Ross (Rd1)
McCombs/Darden (Rd2)
Johnson (Rd2)

Also on the radar:
Wharton - i know this is an absolute stretch but you cant acheive what you cannot dream/try for.
McCombs/Tepper/Kenan-Flagler

Please evaluate my profile and any advise on the app strategy & school selection are highly appreciated.

Regards,
Adi
