Hi there,

I am male from India working in an IT firm.

PFB my profile:

Achievements: Organised a technical fest in my college,

I am planning to give GMAT this month(June) and targetting around 700.I am targetting ISB in India as well as colleges abroad.


Additional information:
I am working as an owner of medical shop dealing in wholesale marketing to distributors.My work is to keep track of the stock of medicines and contact appropriate distributor in the state when respective product is out of stock.
I am also planning to quit IT sector because I have gained corporate experience here but now i want to gain real time business exposure and want to devote my time in activities of shop only.

I request you to kindly share your views over this approach, whether i am on the right track or if missing something?

Expert's post
I believe the idea to leave IT and focus on running the medical shop will enhance your profile.  If you spend another two years successfully developing the busienss it can demonstrate your leadership abilities, ability to innovate and  initiate change.  Plus, it is unique and will set you apart from your peers that are applying.  Something different is always well received.  

What I do not see in your profile is:  "Why an MBA?" and "Why now?."  These are important points to make clear and compelling.  In addition what is your post MBA goal?  You need to answer these questions prior to applying.

I agree that you should target a 700 or above on  the GMAT.  I am not sure how your gpa translates to the US gpa, but best to be in the top 10% of your college class.  

The other area I want to see you enhance is during and since college, what volunteer organizations have you been involved in, promoting what social agenda?  This should be an area to develop to round out your profile.

Best of Luck-
