Pl help me evaluate my profile.
GMAT score : 730 Q50 and V38
Well IR : 8
AWA : 4
So heres my back-ground:
Female, Engineer, NON-IT, Indian, 23 years old
Under grad GPA : 9.1 (scale of 10)
Overall good academic performance. (High school : 85%, Secondary school: 92%)
I am in Automobile(Commercial vehicles) sales (as Deputy Manager) since two years and would have slightly less than 3 years by matriculation.I would spend the next year in Brand management.
In college,I was part of a small team that developed and ran an in-campus enterprise (food,travel desk,laundry etc.) for a year.During which span we handled head to toe of the whole business: Managing vendors,accounting, reducing tat for all services, quality control etc.
Other small-time college event organising experiences.
Work-wise: Handled two dealer operations and sales in a metro (Bangalore)
Others: Good management electives during college.Internship at ABB for 5 months.Certified artist.Classical dancer trained for 7 years.
Preferred future career: Short term- Corporate Strategy (preferably Automobile sector) , Long Term(say 10 years post MBA) : Enterprenuership
I wish to apply for Class of 2017.
And the wishlist is long and obvious: H/S/W and CBS, Kellogg, MIT,Booth.
Where do I have strong chances given my profile? Which other "safe" schools to which I should apply?
Too young is it a disadvantage?
Low GMAT score? Is the low IR a major cause of worry, it being the 21st percentile, I am quite shocked as I am good at writing, given my toefl score,high school english etc.
Thanks in advance!
