Profile evaluation for my target schools [#permalink] New post 04 Aug 2013, 19:12

I'm 27/M with around 4 yrs of industry experience by the time the program starts. Here is my profile.

1) Currently working in India as a Management Consultant in one of the big 4 in the public sector domain.

2) Previously worked with an Online Marketing and Research Start-up for two years. Got promoted to a Manager position in the second year and managed a team of 5-7 people. I've been involved with various high responsibility roles throughout the small organisation and secured them a multitude of new clients.

3)GMAT 670(Q 44, V 38). Should I retake? I don't have much time left before the applications.

4)Graduated from a private college in the US with a BSC in Computer Engineering.

5)I have been running a small support group with an NGO which teaches entrepreneurial skills to rural households. I started working with the NGO in 2004 i.e even before I started college. Discontinued when I left for college for six years and started working with them again in 2010 when I returned. It's now been over 3 years.

5) Prince2 certified.

6)Target Programs:- University of Hong Kong, HEC Paris, HKUST, NUS, NTU, ISB.

7) Move out from public sector consulting in to deeper management consulting and become involved in mergers and acquisitions, risk analysis, management restructuring etc.

My # 1 choice is ISB. I am not sure how the admissions committe at ISB is going to look at my GMAT score.

You have strong profile with good amount of work experience, if you feel like retaking the GMAT then best option would be to start with application parallel to your GMAT preparation also you should focus on your application essays and recommendations for any top b-school. B-schools will never judge you based on only GMAT score so try to work hard on your application and ISB looks for diversity, leadership abilities so focus on these aspects in your essays.
