Profile Evaluation for Masters in Management Programmes [#permalink] New post 20 Aug 2011, 20:37
I wish to apply for the elite masters in management programs, which require no work experience.

My profile:

Age - 21
Nationality - Indian
Undergrad - Bachelors in Management Studies from Mumbai University. Graduated with 82% aggregate score - top 1% of class.
Work Experience - 2 internships of 2 months each, at startups.
GMAT - 670 Q48 V35 (Was expecting 720-730)

Others- Ample amount of team work experience.
Core committee member of the organizing committees of 3 different events of my college for 3 successive years.

I feel that my stint at the startup and my experience with the events was really amazing and I can effectively market them through my essays.

I plan to apply for LBS MiM, Duke MMS, LSE MiM-CEMS and St.Gallen MA.SIM. Are my chances still dim, considering that these programs are difficult to get into, as far as I have heard ? Do I need to retake the GMAT ?

As per their websites my GMAT score is a tad more than the average/median scores. I was targeting a scholarship but that seems next to impossible now. Do you think my chances of admission are dim ?

Everything else in your profile seems great, but I would recommend retaking the GMAT to boost the score to at least 700, preferably 720+. If you do not reach that score though, I do encourage you to apply anyway. Your GPA and activities do count as well, and they might prove strong enough to overcome the GMAT.
