Dear Team,

Request you to please evaluate my profile. Thanks for your time :)

Demographics:
Male 27 years old from India
GMAT: 760 Q50 V44; IR 7; AWA - 6.0

Academics:
Bachelors in Technology (Computer Engineering) from a top college in India - GPA 6.8/10 (%age conversion as per college guidelines 61.2%)

Work Experience:

IMS Health Consulting - September 2012 to Present
Work in the role of Associate Consultant primarily in healthcare analytics and consulting. Lead of team for outsourcing of Switzerland consulting projects to India. Have traveled to Europe for setting up processes for my team and executing some complex projects.

ZS Associates - Jun 2010 to March 2012
Worked in the role of Business Associate primarily in healthcare analytics and consulting. Have worked on wide domain of healthcare projects ranging from segmentation & targeting, call planning, forecasting, impact analysis to pipeline analysis and tracking new product launches. Was brand owner and lead for tracking a new product of the company in a major market for Top 10 pharmaceutical firm, providing analysis and suggestions on optimizing call plan for reps and tracking physician movements in product prescriptions in the initial stages.

Accenture Services Pvt. Ltd. - September 2009 to May 2010
Worked in the software development domain with Accenture for a short time. I shifted from Accenture after just 8 months, as I wanted to move into management consulting industry.

Extracurricular:
I used to play in a band during college days. Have performed at various local cultural fests. Have actively participated in dramatics club as well.
Chief Editor of a self-sustained college magazine. We used to seek out sponsorship for the magazine from various sources, and the magazine was distributed quarterly free of cost to around 1000 students across the college.
Actively played a part in organizing relief funds in my current organization for a natural calamity, organizing blood donation banks and various cultural events in office.

Target Programs:
Priority: Booth, Tuck
Fallback Options: Duke, Darden, Rotman

Kellog was in my priority list, but I had to let it go as there is no co-signer program available. 
I am planning to apply in 2013-14 R2. I decided on doing an MBA pretty late and, hence, missed out on R1 applications.

Post MBA Goals:
I want to move into strategy consulting. I have worked in healthcare consulting/analytics for close to 4 years now, and absolutely love this industry. I would preferably love to continue in healthcare consulting industry but move from the present – more data intensive analytics role – to a more strategic consulting role.
Your advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Yuvraj

You should certainly be competitive at your target schools as long as you interview well. The Indian applicant pool is indeed deep, but your credentials and international experience should differentiate you from the pack, and the fact you work in healthcare consulting for some marquee firms will help separate you from the stereotypical IT background which is common from India of course. One very strong attribute is what you bring to the table with your healthcare experience. As you know, Healthcare is a tough industry to break into and you will have classmates looking for insight into how to crack the code ,which you can provide. This makes you a desirable classmate.

One curious thing is the movement in your career from firm to firm, so make sure you explain why you left each time so it doesn't raise flags. They seem to be lateral moves, but if they were promotions, all the better to explain the movement. Hopefully getting recommendations won't be an issue. it's generally easier the longer you are with a firm to get good recos. Let us know if we can help you pull your story together. We have specialists who graduated from your target schools and can provide insight.
