Hello stratus Prep,

Thank you for the time taken in evaluating my profile. I would request you suggest me some universities for pursuing my MBA in US or Canada for admission in the fall of 2013.

I am an Indian aged 24. I have two years of experience in the field of business development( Energy sector) from Essar group, one of the top conglomerates in India.

I have a gpa of 8.5 in Indian standard in Engineering ( Electrical and Electronics).Also have >90% in my school education.

I have given my GMAT and secured a score of 760( Quants 50 and verbal 42) in my first attempt. I am looking at a top institution which could also give me a decent enough grant or scholarship as otherwise education becomes so expensive.

Kindly suggest.

Hi pradeeptm,

Congratulations on your exceptional GMAT score! Quantitative factors are important in the application process, and your score puts you ahead from the start.

Where did you do your undergraduate work in India? The American MBA programs know the top schools in India well, so it matters if you have an 8.5 from a top school (e.g. an IIT) or a slightly lower tier school in India.

You are on the younger/slightly less experienced side of MBA applicants, but with your high GMAT and solid undergraduate grades, you will still likely be very competitive. Have you been promoted or received a significant raise or increase in responsibilities at your job? This would be very helpful in demonstrating that you have the experience that top MBA programs are seeking.

If you are looking for significant financial aid, you will either need to demonstrate financial need (and even then will likely have to take out a lot of loans), or apply to schools at which you are one of the more desirable applicants, thereby well positioning yourself for merit-based financial aid.
While Harvard and Stanford offer very little merit-based aid, the Stratus Prep team and I have helped students with GPAs as low as 3.0 earn significant merit-based aid at Wharton and other top schools. I would also recommend you apply to Booth, Columbia, Tuck, NYU, UNC, Duke, and Michigan. You should seriously consider working with an admissions counseling firm like Stratus Prep as, with our extensive experience, we can put you in the best possible position for a merit-based scholarship; thus, a relatively modest investment in our services may help you earn 10x or 20x more in merit scholarships.

I wish you all the best in your applications.
