• Is my experience of 8 years a major challenge? NOT AT ALL. AS LONG AS YOU ARE UNDER 35 YEARS OF AGE, THEN IT SHOULD NOT BE AN ISSUE.
• Can you please let me know whether my target schools are actually on target based on my profile. FOR THE MOST PART THEY ARE. I WOULD RE-EVALUATE YOUR REACH SCHOOLS AND BE HONST WTIH YOURSELF IF THEY ARE REALISTIC ESPECIALLY SINCE YOUR CANDIDACY WAS NOT WELL RECEIVED. HOWEVER, I HAVE A FEELING THAT IT HAD TO DO WTIH THE QUALITY OF YOUR APPLICATION RATHER THAN THE QUALITY OF YOUR CANDIDACY.
• Should I reapply to Haas? Considering that, it’s tough to get in and they have already rejected me? I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND IT. THE ACCEPTANCE RATE TO HAAS IS EXTREMELY HOW -- AND FOR INDIAN CANDIDATES IT IS EVEN LOWER. YOU COME FROM A COMPETITIVE DEMOGRAPHIC.
• Are there any other schools that I need to consider? JOHNSON AND MARSHALL.

GOOD LUCK.

Hi Kimberly,

Thanks for your feedback! I would surely approach an admission consultant this time to put together a stronger application.

However, the experience about Pre-sales/Consulting and also the Project Management is added only in the past two years, after my previous application attempts. Before that, I feel that my profile was quite ordinary (not that its extra-ordinary now :) ). I feel I have made quite a progress in the past two years, which I would like to highlight in the apps this time around.

Even I feel that I should not be applying to Haas again based on the reasons suggested by you.

Thanks a lot for your time!
