Hi Shashank,

Yes. The fact that you come from non IT domain will help you but you have to do a good job to spell that out in your essays and this should also come out well in your recos. Also, dont focus on the technical aspects otherwise your profile might not sound better off as compared from a regular IT profile.

Let us know if you have any other queries.

Shashank,
It will not really matter much if you are an IT engineer or a non-IT engineer. It will really depend on what kind of transferable skills/experiences you gained during your corporate experience. Moreover, it's a fact so I wouldn't fret about it and focus on what leadership stories you have to talk about in your application.

Your GMAT score and undergrad are decent. Your corporate experience might have some good potential stories especially with team leading, coordination and may be some kind of impact on the P&L of the company. What are your career goals? Which schools are you targeting at? This will really help to fine tune the realistic school list where you have a decent chance of getting an admit.

Ping us if you have more questions.

Hi Shashank,

Interesting question, being a non IT engineer will definitely add some value to your profile but it will not help much unless you focus on your application essays/recos. You should come up with strong application in order to diversify your profile from huge applicant pool, I am sure from your experience you have many good things to discuss and put them in application essays, but again its quite challenging to write convincing essays within 300-700 word limit. So I would suggest you to start your preparation at the earliest and your focus should be on application.

Let me know if you have any questions... Try tour chances for top b-schools visit http://goo.gl/JtxEn

Hi Everyone,

Thanks a lot for your feedback.
Would you be kind enough to let me know whether I stand a chance of getting admits with some decent scholarship(as w/o schl, an admit for me is as good as a reject) from the colleges that I've selected. My post MBA goal is to join a consultancy with job concentration in general management or operations or strategy analysis.

I agree that I'll have to make my profile sound less technical and I do have some interesting managerial and leadership stories to tell from my past work experience.

Thanks for the the advise.

Hi there, you probably have a better shot at a scholarship at Mays, Smith, or Sauder but even then it's not a guaranteed thing.

Keep in mind, the majority of merit based scholarship decisions take into significant consideration your GMAT. For your applicant pool, it's really just around average which puts you on par with the others.

After the GMAT, it really comes down to story. Are you interesting enough to warrant them paying you to attend?
