I'd be grateful if someone can kindly evaluate my profile. My gmat score are 610,640 and 660(latest) AWA 6.0 (disappointing considering I scored higher in GMAT Prep tests). My profile is as follows:
Std 10: 82%
Std 12: 77%
Graduation: Btech in ECE with Distinction 82%
1 year teaching experience.
4+ years of work experience in one of India's leading IT firms.
lead POC for CSR activities in office.
Considering my low GMAT score, I have virtually eliminated applying in any of the tier 1 Universities such as Duke[Fuqua School of Business], Johnson Cornell University, etc.
I intend to apply to the following Universities:
May's Business School
Ernest Scheller College of Business [Georgia Tech]
Pennsylvania state university(Smeal)
W.P. Carey school of business(Arizona)
Is that a good decision? Also let me know if I should also look out for any other universities apart from the ones given above. My GMAT score threw me out of gear, so I really need all the help that I can get.
I am looking for some sort of scholarship too.
Is there any chance that i will be able to make in any of these schools with around 50 % scholarship.
Given your GMAT results, you are being realistic. If these schools support your goals, then it makes sense for you to apply. I can't comment on scholarship chances.
