Hi

Could you please suggest me schools where i can apply this year. Below is a brief history-


I'm a civil eng by degree (from one of the top 5 tech inst in india) but i'm working for a bank (mortgages) which involves a lot of understanding of the real estate sector and the eco conditions affecting it. I'm also consulting builders on how to increase sales and other strategies regarding construction problems. I gave my GMAT twice this year, i was disappointed with the scores 650, 640, even though i was scoring 700+ in my practice tests.

I have a 2 yr work ex. 1.5 with the bank and the previous 6 months with a civil consultant,as a structures designer.

My col GPA is very low- 6.3/10. But i have a lot of extra curric during that time. I was the president of a cultural club involving around 120 students,was actively involved in the organization of the col's annual cultural festival, was the vice captain of the col's basketball team. I also have a couple of business plans,which won prizes, though never started.

I have helped my alumni association in organizing the 1st global meet of our col.

Could you suggest me whether i should apply to schools this year, with that score ? And which schools should i focus on ?

Hey manky25,

Thanks for reaching out to me. I just wanted to give you a heads up. It's submission week for R1 this week. If I am a bit delayed in my analysis, I will get back to you as soon as I am able.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
