Age - 26 years
Indian Male
B.Com, Mumbai University - 82%
Chartered Accountant, Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (All exams in the first attempt)

36 Months Internship as a part of the CA course in India (24 Months post B.Com degree) with Deloitte (Audit). Lead an engagement in the final 12 months.

39 Months (till the time I join Business School) - Deloitte, Strategy and Operations in India. Promoted to Senior Consultant. I received the highest annual rating at work. Will be able to get recommendations from a Partner and Senior Manager with whom I have worked directly on various engagements.

GMAT: 680 (Q49, V32) AWA - 5.5 - Retaking the GMAT and aiming for 720+

Schools that I plan to apply to -
• Wharton
• Columbia
• Darden
• Stern
• Ross
• Fuqua
• Anderson
• Johnson (Cornell)

Extracurriculars
• Member of the “Fun at Work” Team in office
• Volunteering (One day volunteering but as I was a lead, this involved months of work)
• Lead a team of 70 coworkers to volunteer at an orphanage. I was responsible for planning the overall program that involved painting walls, storytelling,etc
• Lead a team of 40 coworkers to collect close to 3000 books from others in the firm and then organize different activities (book reading sessions, importance of books for children, encourage students to organize book drives, etc. I was responsible for the overall program right from planning to execution. This was the first time something like this was done in the firm

I have been able to considerably overcome (90-95%) my stuttering after years of speech therapy and struggle. This is the most important achievement for me. I would mention this in my application. I do have a story around this.

Do you think I have a profile that is competent for the schools that I have mentioned above? Please provide feedback and suggestions. Thanks.

Hi, gmatprep2011,

Thanks for your post. Yes, you will want to aim for at least 700 overall on the GMAT with at least 80th percentile on each section to put you in a better range for these programs. You should have some interesting strengths you could highlight in your application. I encourage you to demonstrate your leadership experiences professionally and through community service. Also, you personal story about overcoming stuttering could be a great way to get across your character and lessons learned. You don’t mention future career goals, but make sure you clearly articulate them to the admissions committee. You will also want to highlight examples from your career to date that demonstrate skills and experiences that serve as a foundation for this path.

Good luck,

Susan Kaplan
