Being female is an advantage, but the Asian applicant pool is very competitive. For this reason, it sounds like from your situation that the best thing to do would be to get that extra year under your belt. The question I have is why is this year better for the work scholarship?

I appreciate the advice. So do the two minority statuses cancel out (Asian and female) or do I have a net advantage/disadvantage? This year is better for the scholarships because I'm very likely to meet the program requirements, whereas next year it will be much more difficult to fulfill the stipulations. I would however like to work another year before applying (just personally). If I were to gain acceptance but not attain the scholarship, would it be easy to defer my matriculation for one year? Many thanks.

If you can get your MBA paid if you apply now and go this Fall, I say go ahead and apply. I do believe that you will do better on your acceptances with more work experience under your belt, but if you do not get in this year you can always apply the following year again. Business school is expensive and the scholarship sounds like an enticing opportunity.

Deferring, from my experience, differs school to school.

The Asian/Female mix in my opinion is neither an advantage or disadvantage, but either way does not matter because you can not change it. Focus on what you can change, like maximizing your letters of recommendation, and making your essays as compelling as possible.

Good luck on your journey.

Hi,
Firstly, I would like to thank you for providing an oppurtunity to me of presenting my profile for evaluation to your goodself.
I am looking at following Business Schools to apply for Fall 2013 -

d) Work Exp - Total 7 Years 2 Months (Techno-Management role) in IT by the time Fall 2013 batch starts at all of schools listed above.

Some of the highlights -
a) Great adapatability - I have studied in 8 prestigious schools till my Senior Secondry Education (12th Class) across various
gepgraphical locations in India (owing to frequent location change in my father's govt job).Same applies to my
professional journey as well - first employer being Cognizant Technology Solutions (Typical IT Service
provider),then CGI (Canadian Organisation), and then RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland) - One of the biggie banks on
the planet.
b) Exposure to various domains during my professional stint - IT Services, Supply-Chain Management, Banking and Financial Domains,
Manufacturing.
c) Internship - Began from 2nd year onwards till end of my engineering during each summer break.
1) 2nd Year engineering - IBM Corporation, India - As a technical engineer, developed softwares on multiple languages.
2) 3rd Year engineering - Selected by Department of Atomic Energy, Govt of India for short research study on CPU

3) Final year engineering - Did my corporate internship at TISCO (renowned Tata Steel Corporations),India,I developed

d) Academic - 1) Scholar Batch for academic excellence in my Senior Secondry School,2) Book of Merit Award by a Central Govt
Organisation for academic excellence at High School.
e) Professional Awards - 1) RBS Group's Global Ovation Award for continued excellence in managing the delivery over years.In fact, my
team bought this laurel to my business division which didn;t get this award in last 5 years.
2) Silver Excellence Award (RBS India Level) - For excelling in delivering solutions to business.
I will keep away from writing usual awards which are on team level like 'Thank You' , I Appreciate,etc.

I would appreciate if I can have a profile evaluation done for my candidature for above mentioned schools, also I would welcome your
expert opinion on consideration of any other better schools (If I can !! depending upon above profile) !!

Thanks in advance,

I agree; I think I'm going to apply this Fall, and if I don't get in, I'll just apply next year. Thankfully, the letters of recommendation and essays shouldn't be an issue, but I'll be sure to focus most of my efforts on them.

Thanks again!
