There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I am an Indian female, aged 26 with 5 years experience at an oil and gas multi-national with work experience spanning areas of project management including lead roles, design and engg and operations support in three different countries (NL/IN/PH). I gave GMAT recently and scored a 700 Q48/V38. I have an undergrad GPA of 3.6 from a reputed institute in India in Chemical engg. Which schools should I aim for and which ones would be a stretch? I'd really appreciate your feedback!
Thanks for your swift response. I'd really like to target the top 10 B schools but I am not quite sure if it's a realistic target given my GMAT score and nationality (higher competition). I'm quite okay with any location as long as the school is reputed. A few other points that I succinctly mentioned in my previous post about myself: I've been in project management roles of CAPEX intensive projects in uncommon (high risk in terms of security) countries, my other main credentials include a summer research internship in India (chosen among thousands of other candidates) and a leadership based selection program for the oil and gas major I now work for, for which I was among 47 candidates selected from all countries in Asia Pacific. I am also a classical vocalist (I have given a few concerts). My goal post graduation would be to be part of the strategy department of big players in the energy industry. I have always been good at seeing things from a broader perspective and at steering work processes towards a goal that both makes sense and proves beneficial, hence I think I will do a good job at strategy/planning.
