Hi,
Please find my profile below:

I am a 26 year old software engineer with 2+ years of experience in IT. I work for a well known MNC in India.I am originally from Nepal and hold a Nepalese citizenship.I have been in banking domain since I joined the company. After early training period,even though I was designated as Software Engineer,due to the frequent changes in Lead positions I got great exposure and experience. I had to take responsibility to manage whole database for an electronic banking web application right from development to production. I was directly contacted for any database issues and got the opportunity to handle the clients for different requirement and reviews. My basic role is the maintenance of database for a certain electronic banking web application and development of different new features and requirements which needs to be incorporated in the application.

GMAT 1st attempt 640(Q 48, V 30) 2nd attempt 640 (Q47 , V 31) after not improving the second time really hesitant to attempt anymore

I completed B.tech in Electronics and Communication Engineering for NIT, Warangal with 7.6(/10) pointer in 2011

Extracurricular : Part of different people engagement teams at Work, Working as a Volunteer for a NGO,Involved in national tech fests and cultural fests at college, lots and lots of activities during high school

Looking at:
i) Indiana Kelley - MBA
ii) NUS -MBA (singapore)
iii) NTU- MBA (singapore)
iv) Texas A and M mays - MBA
v) Brigham young university Marriot- MBA
vi) University of wisconsin Madison-MBA
vii) Georgia Tech schellar- MBA
viii) tippie (IOWA)- MBA
xi) university of georgia Terry-MBA
x)university at illinois- urbana-champaign- MBA
xi)Smeal- MBA

Will be choosing among them!



Please provide a evaluation of my profile. Also kindly let me know my chances at those colleges above or any tips in which all colleges from above I should apply to. Is there any higher ranked colleges (than above mentioned)which I have a decent chance at.

As I come from a economically week background, do you think at any of those colleges I can hope for some scholarship?

Thank you a lot in advance!

Thank you for your posting.

There are tow major concerns with your candidacy: the first is that you come from a very competitive demographic and the second is that your GMAT scores are on the low side for many schools. I would really encourage you to improve your scores -- as the higher your scores the better your chances of getting into your target programs.

See my comments below on your chances at each of the schools listed:

i) Indiana Kelley - MBA -- YOU NEED HIGHER GMAT SCORES TO BE COMPETITIVE
ii) NUS -MBA (singapore) -- YOU NEED HIGHER GMAT SCORES TO BE COMPETITIVE
iii) NTU- MBA (singapore) - YOUR CHANCES ARE DECENT
iv) Texas A and M mays - MBA -- YOU WILL NEED HIGHER GMAT SCORES
v) Brigham young university Marriot- MBA - WHY ARE YOU APPLYING HERE? IT IS A RELIGIOUS SCHOOL.
vi) University of wisconsin Madison-MBA -- YOU NEED MUCH HIGHER GMAT SCORES
vii) Georgia Tech schellar- MBA -- YOU SHOULD BE COMPETITIVE
viii) tippie (IOWA)- MBA -- YOU SHOULD BE COMPETITIVE
xi) university of georgia Terry-MBA -- YOU SHOULD BE COMPETITIVE
x)university at illinois- urbana-champaign- MBA -- YOU SHOULD BE COMPETITIVE
xi)Smeal- MBA -- YOU SHOULD BE COMPETITIVE

Thanx for such a detailed evaluation.I took the advise of retaking the GMAT and got a score of 730 (q 50 v 39).I m hoping this score will help my chances at ranked schools.So I scrapped my rough list of school I made last time. Could you please provide some top schools name where I will have good chances with this profile. Also, could you provide some schools(even lower ranked) were I can hope substantial scholarships. I am mainly looking at American business schools.
