Profile Evaluation: India / Female / 29 / Marketing [#permalink] New post 06 Sep 2011, 19:54
Hi,

I had applied to a few schools for Fall 2011 but got dinged by most and was on the waitlist at Tepper. Feedback from Tepper was that I need to tie in my current profile with my short term goals (transferable skills). I am seriously considering reapplying to a few of these schools and to some new ones as I am keen on joining an MBA programme by Fall 2011. My profile is as given below:

Demographics: Indian, Female, 29 years
Gmat: 740, Q49, V 42, AWA 6
Education: Undergraduate - Engineering from Visveswaraiah Inst of Technology - university rank holder, 86%
Graduate: Post graduate diploma in Business from Tier 2 MBA college in India, graduated top of class
Extra curriculars - during school and college, dance & debates, organizing college fests (all years)
Work experience: 2 years in FMCG company (sales role & marketing role). Helped launch a new & successful programme; 3 years in a B2B company but working on category building (3 years in advertising & marketing communication); Just promoted and started on a new role in developing the category
Community service: Been teaching kids of construction workers through an NGO
Recommendations: From senior colleagues at both places of work
Post MBA goals: Move to Management consulting, for the consumer goods sector
Additional Info: I would be applying with my husband

Target schools: Wharton, Insead, Tuck, Kellogg
Am wondering whether I should apply to Booth too.
Am considering applying to Tepper and Darden in Round 2.

Please advise on fit for these colleges and how I could improve my candidacy.
