Profile Evaluation Request [#permalink] New post 23 Jul 2011, 20:21
Hi,

I like to have an evaluation of my profile.

I am an Indian national and a Computer Science graduate from a non-IIT school.

GMAT: 710 (Q49 - 85% and V38 -83%) awaiting AWA
Bachelors - In Computer Science with 79% - From India
Masters - In Computer Science with 2 on a scale of 4, 1 being the highest - From Germany

Initiatives:
1) Though I am currently residing in the US, I am a Co-Founder and a Director at an India based start up which is in Computer Graphics/Animation business. I am active in making the management decisions and participate in weekly meetings (I am not a sleeping partner). This business is currently breaking even, expected to turn profitable soon.
2) Took some business related courses on Strategy, Leadership, Entrepreneurship in a continuing studies evening school

Extra Curricular Activities:
I have been managing a Cricket Team for the last 1.5 years. This team plays as a part of 70 team league. Maintain team's web site and forum as the web master.

I have 6 years of work experience as a Software Engineer/Developer and am 31 years old.

Targeted schools:
Looking to get into one of these schools for FT MBA
Booth, Wharton, Kellogg, Haas, Ross, Tuck, Anderson

Thanks for your time and help.

Thanks and Regards,
Krishna Pisupat

Expert's post
You have many core essentials for a good application, and despite the fact your targeted school list is aspirational for any applicant, you seem to have enough of the "right stuff" to get you into a top 10 school. What I like about your profile is that you have several areas in which you could potentially stand out in the crowd, a very critical hurdle for anyone from India with an IT or Technology background. Your Master's degree you achieved in Germany and the fact that you currently work in the US will help differentiate you from others whose experience is more localized. Most applicants with a similar profile to yours are either on a Crickett team or manage one, so focus on the things you do that are different (such as the website you mentioned and the size of the league). Schools are going to want to see how you are involved in the community outside of recreation as well, and I can tell you that many Indians have NGO experience. You probably have been involved somewhere that you simply did not list, so make sure you demonstrate that you give back to your community in a philanthropic or civic way. The additional courses you took in business will demonstrate you are serious and it sounds like an interesting story about the animation company--definitlely not they typical kind of company one hears about, so leverage the uniqueness of this experience to weave a story which will tie into your short and long term MBA vision. Let us know if we can be helpful in pulling everything together.
