Profile Evaluation, different profile [#permalink] New post 27 Feb 2013, 09:39
Hello,

I am a recent BS(Finance) graduate from Murray State University (2012) applying to MBA for Fall 2013. My GMAT score is 620 (Q:45, V:30) and have a undergraduate GPA of 3.54/4.00. I also hold a Diploma or Associates degree in Hotel Management from India and have 2 years work experience in hospitality industry after obtaining my associates degree. Since my graduation, I have been volunteering with a global non-profit organization based in Boston. I have been on the Dean's list a few times and have also volunteered at SIFE/Encartus during undergraduate studies. I was also a member of Beta Gamma Sigma and Beta Alpha Psi. Some of the schools I have been targeting are:

- Northeastern University
- Lehigh University
- University of Missouri
- UMass Amherst
- UMass Boston
- RIT
- North Carolina State University.

What are my chance of getting through in these colleges? Are there any other potential colleges I can target? Also, what is the possibility of getting any scholarship at these programs? I would really appreciate any feedback since my profile is slightly different from a normal applicant.

You should have a shot at your target schools and could likely expand to any school which strikes your fancy in the top 50. Two years work experience is really a minimum for FT b-school programs, so I would say if you work a little longer, and take on some leadership/management roles, you could aim even higher (UNC Keenan Flagler, Kelley school, UT Austin etc.)

Hi Ganesh--

Business Schools like engineering majors and with a Master's degree, your advanced education will add to the appeal of your profile. You did not provide a lot of detail, so it's difficult to say if you are a viable "top business school" candidate or not. Defining the top schools as the top 15 or so, which have essentially been the same schools for decades, I will say that two years of work experience is going to be on the lighter side. You have to remember that you are not competing against a list of requirements or standards, you are competing against actual people for the coveted and limited slots in these programs, which means there will be countless engineers just like you in the running, but with 3-6 years work experience instead of 2. For this reason, you must be prepared to speak to the extra measure of achievement, innovation, and leadership you have garnered in your two years which will outweigh these other applicants. If you are Indian, I can tell you the applicant pool is very deep, and actually contains the second most number of applicants behind white males from the US. A stellar GMAT score is a must in this category as is a clear and compelling vision for your post MBA career and why now is the ideal time to go back to school.
