Profile evaluation :: Consulting 3 years :: 720 GMAT [#permalink] New post 01 Apr 2013, 10:15
Hi, I am a 26 years old Indian with 3 years experience in management (Strategy & Operations) consulting. Having worked for 2 start-ups, I had the opportunity to lead several engagements independently. I also received a ‘partner commendation for outstanding contribution’ for one engagement.

My GMAT score isn’t all that great -720 (Q49, V40)

I pursued my undergrad in computer science engineering from the international campus of a top 10 engineering college in India (Bits – Pilani, Dubai). My Undergrad GPA is 3.1 (7.76/10).

No significant extracurricular activities at college level. However, I was part of the organizing team for our college sports fest. I am currently on the leadership team of our Alumni organization (Voluntary role). I play some tennis at club level (nothing spectacular though!)

I aspire to pursue my MBA from a top-10 B-school. I intend to apply during Round 1 for 2014 intake. Do I stand a chance?

Post my MBA I’d like to work for a large consulting firm for some time. I find this line of work to be very exciting and challenging. Although daunting at times, the work is very dynamic and the lifestyle is pretty fascinating.

My problem is that I haven’t really worked for any big names. All my work experience is at start-up firms, which handle small and medium clients. Will this be a setback for my candidature? Also, my present firm isn’t doing all that well. Consequently, I have been idling for quite some time now. 

So, where do I stand? Please Advise!

Thanks

Hi StrivingTurtle,

Thanks for posting. What is most important is that in your application you show progress, leadership capabilities, and that you present yourself as someone who is going to make an impact. These are the type of candidates that top MBA admissions programs are looking for.

For business school, are there any specific programs you are considering? What are your goals post-graduation?

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
