Hi Team:

Please provide me critical feedback on my profile and my chances at my target school.

Work experience: 4 years, of which 6 months in consulting (erstwhile Monitor) and rest in Test & Measurement B2B Sales (business development role with a revenue target)
GMAT: 750 (Q:50, V:41), AWA: 4, IR: 8, TOEFL: 112
Extra curricular: very active in the start-up circle: regular interactions with technology start-ups, guiding tech start-ups to break-even
Education: B.E. from a top-10 engineering institution in India (non IIT)...scholarship and diverse volunteer experience, CGPA aroung 3.6-3.7

My target schools are: Tuck, Kellogg, Duke, Cornell, Yale, Darden
Post MBA goal: Product management-Technology

A nagging query I have is: as a non-native speaker how do I mitigate this AWA score? should I give GMAT again? and whether this score is a deal-breaker at my target schools. This is a riding concern as I received a Fuqua ding earlier and have been evaluating/introspecting the reasons for that ding.

Your thoughts/insights would be really appreciated

thanks and regards

Hi,

Thanks for writing here.

I like your name, seems you have mythological views to express :).

Your profile sounds ok with respect to criteria such as GMAT and work ex.

Good news is that your work experience and post MBA goals are related, but you have to ensure that this story is best reflected in the essays.

The schools mentioned you have tough compeition for indian applicants, but you have unique profile, so I would suggest that shoot a killer app.

There is no point in retaking GMAT for AWA score, prove your skills in your essays and interview.

The ding you received may not necessarily for the AWA, did you ask the school to give feedback ? Fuqua is positive in giving feedback.

Hope this helps, good luck

Thanks, a lot, OasisGC...as regards to my name, just expressing the situation we have in this uber-competitive space :(

I needed your opinion. What if I get an all-dinger season (a highly likely scenario) should I go ahead with ISB (got a convert) or wait another year and then re-apply (would I be competitive again next year, as I won't have made drastic new achievements by then). This catch-22 situation is really giving me a headache :(

Looking forward to your reply.

Very perturbed

Hello,

Thanks for your revert.

A few points

1) Choosing a school ISB or wait is purely a personal decision. If i were you, i would first decide where I want to settle post MBA. If you want to settle in India, go for ISB. If you want to explore other markets, go for the specific region school.

2) I will be fake if i comment on your chances of being accepted in the next cycle because I am not aware when did you apply ? whether your essays were framed rightly ? did you bring the right skills to the table that the school wanted ? did you apply at the right time ?

If you answer all above questions, you will be able to decide if you stand a chance next time or not.

I suggest you do this exercise on your own first. Later, if you think you need help, send the answers of all above questions and essays to me (discretionary) and we can have a few min discussion on the same.

Good luck for your future.

Thanks
