Dear Consultant,

I recieved "Excellent" rating in first year review and am awarded CEO Kitty for exceptional performance in the first Year of service. I completed Post Graduate Diploma in Business management from XIME ( one of the top 30 B Schools in India ) with a CGPA of 5.31 / 8.0 I did Bachelor of Engineering from JNTU ( one of good universities in India ) with a percentage of 70.01.

It's like going into a grocery store that is stocked with all kinds of beverages, and telling the clerk that you're thirsty. The clerk asks you what you prefer to drink. And your response is that you like carbonated, non-carbonated, and bottled water so long as it's good. Which encompasses every drink in the store. I ask for regional preferences because that heavily dictates what schools you should be targeting. If you're hoping to work in the US, you should target US schools. If you're looking to work in Europe, then European schools should be your focus. If you're looking to work in Asia, then it should be local Asian schools primarily or top US/Euro schools. And "General Management/Strategic Management" isn't a job or company. It's an abstract concept. I ask for this because the kinds of jobs you want and the companies you're targeting also heavily dictate which schools you should target. If you're looking to work on Wall Street, then it's a specific set of schools you should be going for. If you're looking to work in finance in London, then that will dictate a certain set of schools. If you're looking to work in rotational programs in Europe, then that will dictate what schools to look for. I've given you some pointers here that should allow you to fish yourself (rather than me doing the fishing for you) -- and from there you should be able to narrow down the list of schools for yourself. And if you really don't have any preferences other than "get me a job so long as it's a good job in a good city" then no one can really suggest anything to you -- you might as well throw darts onto a list of schools and choose at random. _________________ Alex Chu alex@mbaapply.com http://www.mbaapply.com Intern Joined: 17 Dec 2009 Posts: 2 Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 0 [0], given: 0 Re: Profile Evaluation Engineer + PGDBM (HR ) [#permalink] 29 Jan 2010, 02:26 Dear Alex , Would you answer a quick question for me pls ? Do you think it is worth applying to Booth R3 ? Or they usually fill class through R1 and R2 ? Or would I have more chances at London BS , because its lower ranked and has a 4th Round. Profile below if you need. Thanks much 25 M/From Azerbaijan/ First time applying to BP/ No one else is applying from my workplace Graduated with honours from Azerbaijan Oil Academy, petroleum engineering, 4.9 GPA / on 5.0 scale 700 GMAT , 76Q/89V. Working in BP as Drilling engineer since 2006 , have spent 1 year working on offshore platform. Has an excellent recommendation from employer where he mentions my contribution which has saved BP$100.000

Cofounder of local Non Profit organization which conducts lectures , seminars for local students majored in engineering.

Semi professional football player, striker of my Cambridge college's graduate team.

Currently I am studying 1 year economics program at the University of Cambridge, UK. This is a special Diploma program for students with liitle or no economics at undergrad level. This should provide a smoother transition for me from petroleum engineering to MBA.

My goal is go for consulting job after graduation, so looking for management schools.
One important thing to mention, if this can be of any help: if I get an acceptance into one of those schools I will guarrantee a full scholarship from Azerbaijani government.

Based on your profile alone, you should be competitive for schools like Booth, Columbia, LBS, etc. assuming you applied in Rounds 1 or 2 (or Columbia's case - Early Decision).

Round 3 at Booth is simply a matter of numbers - most of the seats will have been filled with R1/R2 applicants, and it has less to do with how strong you are as an applicant; luck has a bigger role to play in R3. Same with LBS in Round 3 and 4 (like NYU and Berkeley, it's more competitive to get into than its reputation/ranking may suggest simply because it's located in a major business center that will attract a lot of highly accomplished "locals").

As for whether you should apply or not for Round 3 is a personal decision. If you are willing to spend the time to put in a great application with the expectation that it's going to be a crapshoot, then go for it. You can always reapply the following year as well - but since there's practically no real lapse of time between Round 3 decisions and the start of Round 1 (you get your Round 3 decisions in May or so, and Round 1 starts up again in June/July) - you may want to wait until Round 1 if you can (that would be my recommendation - not to mention the fact that at any US school, you may not get approved for a US immigration visa in time for the start of classes if you apply for Round 3).

Alex, thanks for a reply. I have applied for Stanford and HBS, but didnt have much time to write application for other schools in R2. Since those 2 schools are highly competitive I am looking for others where I could have more chances at R3.
Nice thing about Columbia is that its on rolling bases and am planning to submit app. in couple of days. So, I assume theres no point applying to Booth R3 and I'd rather try LBS.
I have been in UK (Cambridge) for 4months now and I truly like community here.
Btw LBS has a fourth round, does that mean that they're not filling the class through first 3 rounds ?
