Profile evaluation. Interview tips [#permalink] New post 11 Nov 2009, 14:05
Profile:

Female, Indian

My GMAT is 700
TOEFL-120 on internet based
GPA of 3.8 in Under grad and 3.6 in Grad ( Master's in Biological sciences)-
Both from very average colleges
2 years of experience as an executive recruiter.

Now the problem area- Been unemployed since 2007. Basically moved to Boston on a visa that does not allow me to work. I have been volunteering as an English as a second language tutor since december 2008.

Target schools are

Boston University
Boston College
Babson

Babson and BU would be my top choice. Babson for the entrepreneurship program and BU because of the health sector management. I think that would allow me to integrate my academics with career aspirations

I have already made the round 1 admissions and have interviews scheduled with Boston college and BU and I hope to do well.

I want to know what are my chances of getting into Babson or Boston univ. What can be the problem areas.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Those schools are no extremely competitive so with your GPA/GMAT is may get you buy. With Babson, since it's so entrepren focused, maybe you can talk about any thing you've done outside of work. Not working for 2 years is gonna be diffficult.

Will do that. My EAD/Work permit should come through by that time. Also it is easier to get a company to sponsor a H1 (visa that allows you to work) if you have pursued a full time course here.

Thank you for your comment. I am hopeful and optimistic. I have a lot to offer, so I think it might pan out after all. :)
