I am a south-asian male, working here in Chicago for the past 4 years. I'd like to make round 3 deadlines for Booth's FT MBA. Would greatly appreciate if you could evaluate my profile:

GMAT: 760
MS in Electrical & Computer Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette (3.75/4 GPA)
Activities: President, Indian Classical Music Association of Purdue

Undergrad: Electronics and Communication Engineering, Anna University, India (4/4 GPA), Ranked: 2 out of 133 students

WorkEx: Close to 4 years in a HF Trading firm, as an algorithms/applications developer

Extra-Curricular activities: Performing musician, performed all across India and over 10 cities in the US
--------

Would be very thankful if you could provide some feedback. Thanks!



I'm assuming you had high grades in college too. Everything you write above would make you a highly competitive applicant at Booth. The fly in the ointment obviously is the round 3 aspect of it. Go for it. They do accept people round 3, but the more common the profile the less likely the acceptance. Can you great qualifications overcome the fairly common profile, there's only one way to find out.

Please let us know if you would like help with your application.
Best,
Linda

Linda,

Thanks for the evaluation, appreciate it. From your experience, is it a long shot for applicants in round 3 to get in, with a profile such as this? I want to get in this year so I don't have to wait another year hunting leather. Would you rather wait for a year; I don't think I will add too much to my profile except for 12 months more of work experience. Thanks!

It is definitely harder to get accepted round 3 than round 1 or 2, but Booth doesn't have a Round 3 in order to reject everyone, as their recent blog post on this subject explained. You have a strong profile. If you were applying R1 or R2, I would be optimistic about your chances, but R3 is less predictable. I think it's worth your while to apply. There is no downside other than the time and cost involved. Please see http://blog.accepted.com/2013/01/13/sho ... next-year/ for more on this topic.

Best,
Linda
