Hello,

Please evaluate my profile and highlight some schools where I have a realistic chance of admission.

Indian Male, 25 Years

Undergrad Degree: B. Tech. Computer Science (IP University, Delhi)

Undergrad performance : 71.64%

Work Experience : 3 Years till date

Details about Work Experience
1) Started a venture that combined online marketing, search engine optimization and online promotion of businesses. The venture specializes in improving the online presence of offline businesses and products and consulting them. Encountered lots of challenges of a startup and managed the risks well.
2) The business grew well and flourished as we enhanced our services, domains and options.
3) The business is still going strong and we have around 80% international clients and 20% local clients.

Extracurricular
1) Have played hockey for 5 years in school, from 2000 to 2005. Have played at North India level (in 2002 and 2004) and placed third in 2004. Other than that, loads of achievements in city tournaments and interschool tournaments.
2) Most of my extracurricular activities in college revolved around competitive e-sports. Apart from winning lots of tournaments at city level and across different colleges, have lots of experience in organizing competitive e-sports tournaments. Have organized e-sports tournament in different colleges around the city.
3) Due to my passion for competitive e-sports, an upcoming field in India, I still mentor teams and guide them during tournaments. I also sponsor teams and help them achieve their potential in this field.

Post-MBA Plans: I would either want to work as a consultant for upcoming businesses and entrepreneurs (due to my experience) or engage in online marketing after MBA. I also wish to continue creating new businesses.

Thanks!

Hi, Tech3,

If your equivalent GPA is 3.5 or over, you are in the academic range for some top programs. At the same time you are under the average years of work experience for most programs. Starting your own venture, you will want to demonstrate your leadership and maturity through examples of what you did to found and grow the company. Make sure that you refine your career goals so you are clear on where you want to go in the short and long term. You want to have a foundation of experiences for this path to make sense and for your short term goals to flow into your long term. You also want to be clear why you need an MBA at this point in your career. You have some good extra-curricular activities, but make sure you are focusing only on ones from within three years of when you apply.

In terms of schools, I suggest you think about what you need to learn in an MBA program which will be based on where you want to go in your career. Then think of your other criteria (geography, program size, teaching style, etc) to find the right fit for you. You may also want to look at programs that typically accept younger candidates such as Kellogg.

Good luck,

Susan Kaplan
