Hello Experts and everyone on the forum,

Must say you all a re doing a commendable job out here.

I request you all to please evaluate my profile and help me decide a school:

I scored a 650 In GMAT (Q-50,V-28)
AWA- 6.0 (Hope it compensates the low Verbal score)

I am targetting for ISB in India and some good schools in US (Havent decided on them yet)

I have a 3 years work experience in IT ; Certified in SAP technology.

Have held few reputable positions in my college in terms of fests, external affairs etc.

I am running pretty short on time as deadlines are fast approaching .

Appreciate your quick and insightful response to help me out here.

Cheers

Thanks much for your appreciative comments.

First, assuming you are Indian, I would consider ISB a very high reach given your GMAT, perhaps too high to be realistic.

Among US programs, reasonable-reach programs would be in the range of Vanderbilt’s Owen, University of Maryland’s Smith, and Rochester’s Simon. Examples of on-pars would be University of Iowa’s Tippie and Penn State’s Smeal. You may also consider excellent Canadian programs (e.g., Schulich) which tend to be less GMAT-centric.

I make this assessment with very scant info—e.g., how impressive are your career track record and undergrad record? It assumes a good-to-strong record in both areas.

I’ve put together a special report on how to evaluate your profile and develop a list of target schools accordingly, which may be helpful.

Hello Dear,
Welcome . and such a great future of you ..I think ISB provide you a great opportunity in this field...
If you want to settle down in abroad..then US is the most appropriate county as per your choice..and Stanford University is the best in one ..
so give your carrier a right direction.

Thanks for the comments... I would like to add up few things if these can help give a better info about me:

I have been managing a company alongside my engineering..it is a small scale heavy machinery company wherein I manage a team of about ten people under me and define the contracts and tenders of the company.

Secondly, during my engineering i used to conduct vocational classes for students in a charity school for 4 years wherein i was teaching english and mathematics.

I also have got a 3 months internship at a IT Company in Dubai during my undergrad and was the chief of external affairs of my college lastly.

But yes, My dad is not the minister of Finance.

Do the above points coupled with solid essays add fairly enough to my profile or u think it would be pure waste of time to even apply ?

Appreciate your quick response :)

The additional info does enhance your profile. I still think ISB would be a stretch, but slightly closer – I’d now consider it a reasonable (outer edge, but reasonable) reach, with a stellar application.
