BOOKMARKED
Hi,
Please evaluate my profile and suggest colleges which can offer good scholarship as per this profile. I am from India.

GMAT - 680(M-49,V-33)
College : B.Tech in ECE from NIT Kurukshetra, CGPA - 8.2
10th - 87%
12th - 85%
Got 800 AIR in AIEEE 2004(all india engineering entrance exam) which puts me in the top percentile achievers in that year
Work Exp - 4 years(IT industry) with a leading software company in finance domain.
Onsite Exp - 1.5 months(USA)

Got value in performance (VIP) award and shining star team award in organisation and many client appreciation emails.

Presently working as senior software engineer: my role includes training new resources on the product as well as software development.

During my tenure ,i have had some exciting opportunities:

1) Gave technical walk through for the POC of a business intelligence tool to the VP at client side which was very successful. I was the only one responsible for that project.
2) In 2010, I went to US for the kick-off of a new project. This was an unique opportunity. I along with my project lead had to prove our potential at the customer side and we were successful. After coming back from US, i mentored a team of around 10 people on the new project.

Extra-curricular:
1) Decent social work
2) Captain of house in school. A number of prizes won in exhibition, essays, quizzes, sports etc.
3) A few prizes and participation certificates at college level.
4) Decent participation in organizational extra-curriculars like organizing independence day celebration, skits, Open house etc. I don't have certificates for these but i can get them mentioned in my recos.

I am targetting MBA in IT consulting right now.

Please suggest.

Thanks and Regards

I think you are competitive at these schools with your current score. Obviously, you also need to write good essays and interview well.

Best,
Linda

Hi Linda,

Do you think with my score and profile, i have a realistic chance at ISB ( indian school of business), NUS and NTU?
With NUS and NTU, i will look to target strategy management program.
Actually i want to keep my industry same i.e information technology but i am flexible regarding the functions(open to marketing and strategy based on school).
Please suggest.

Thanks and Regards

I don't believe you have a competitive GMAT for ISB. You are more competitive for NUS and NTU.

Best,
Linda

Thanks Linda.
Do you think i will be safe to get an interview call from NUS with 680 GMAT?
My AWA is 5 and IR-7/8.
Although i will try to give GMAT again but still i want to keep the faith alive that even with 680 some good colleges like NUS/NTU are convertible.

Will 720 fetch me a call at ISB?

I believe you have a good chance of getting a interview invitation at NUS with your current GMAT score.

A 720 GMAT certainly improves your chances of getting an interview invitation at ISB. But there is no GMAT score that will guarantee you an interview invitation.

Best,
Linda

Congratulations!

Also consider CMU Tepper, Duke, UNC, and Cornell.

Yes your chance of scholarship at the first set of schools has increased with your score.

Best,
Linda
