Undergraduate: BTech.69 % (among top engineering coleges in India (non IIT))
work ex: 2 years 9 months with a US IT giant : worked as an IT Developer/Analyst and a team lead
9 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)
Total WE : 3 year 9 months
no international work ex..

Post MBA goal : join a top consulting firm as a Consultant

I want to apply to Booth - R3 and Columbia for 2011 admissions.
Please advice if it makes sense to apply in R3 ?? ( I am pretty desperate to get in this year :) )

Hi Zoran:
your question is more of a timing issue in less of a qualified background issue. To be honest, at this point, I would wait for round one at Booth and Columbia. You are only a few months away from Columbia's early decision - which usually falls in the first week of October. With Columbia's rolling admissions, it is very unlikely that there will be many spots left. Theoretically there should be some, but since you are from a very "oversubscribed" applicant group, your chances will be even less than normal.
If you decide to apply Early Decision to Columbia, your profile stands a better chance of grabbing the admissions committee's attention and holding it. Remember that Columbia is really trying to build a more cohesive community of MBA students, so your extracurricular experience is going to be very important that Columbia -- and Of Course Booth as well.
With respect to a consulting career and a prospective fit with Booth and Columbia, you need to take a look at the recent career center statistics. Traditionally, these programs have been less focused on consulting per se and more focused on finance. This is not to say that there are only a few graduates who choose to enter consulting. This is just to say that you need to make your case for the school and your intended major as clear as possible -- especially with Columbia -- a school fixated on your short-term goals and their feasibility.
Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
