Hi
Please find my profile below:

work ex: 2 years 9 months with a US IT giant : worked as an IT Developer/Analyst and a team lead
3 months at a top consulting firm as an Associate , it recruits from many top Bschools(by the time I join the MBA I will have 1 year experience at this firm)
no international work ex..
extracurriculars : average..
I am concerned about my low GPA....will it be compensated by my GMAT score?
is the GPA viewed separately or the GPA and GMAt viewed collectively ?
Post MBA goal : join a top consulting firm as a Consultant

Your grade percentage is a little low, but your GMATdoes compensate quite well.

Tier 1: Stanfordand Columbia
Tier 2: CMU, Duke, Darden
Safety: Emory, UT.

Best,
Linda

You have a chance at all, but the Tier 1 schools are less likely acceptances, and certainly unlikely to provide you with a scholarship. Your chances of acceptance improve at the Tier 2 schools but I am still not optimistic about scholarship money, although it is possible. Your chances of acceptance and scholarship money are strongest at the safety schools. I can't quantify your chances for any of them.

Best,
Linda
