Hello,

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

Indian Male, 25 Years

GMAT Score: 700 (Q50 V34)

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!

Thanks for your post. In many ways, your background will seem similar to a large number of applicants, but you should be able to stand out enough to get attention from top tier (top 30) b-schools. I would focus on the middle of that range (10-20 rank) schools particularly ones who seem to have a challenge in recruiting international students (think Midwest USA). Your demonstrated entrepreneurial drive and high GMAT score communicates the proper message to adcoms that you have the right stuff. You also want to make sure you are good with any Visa issues since you plan to work in the US for a consulting firm. Employability is a hot topic these days, as no school wants to have students in the end who have trouble making the cut with recruiters. You might also consider reverse engineering your school selection process by targeting schools specifically who have a track record of hosting the individual corporate recruiting targets where you would ideally like to land post MBA. Let us know if we can be more helpful.

Hello,

Thanks for your reply!

What if I skip the US schools altogether and focus on other countries, would that be a smart decision?

This is actually a very big decision and should hinge mostly on your post MBA logistics. In general, it's best to go to school near where you plan to work. This does not always apply as a rule (example, some MBAs like HBS or Wharton have true international notoriety), but when considering where you want to go to school, its a good idea to think first about where you want to work afterwards. There is no way to appropriately value a solid network and reputation of your chosen school, so the only way I'd choose to do a second tier MBA in the US is if I planned to remain in and work in the US.
