Hello Stacy,

Request you to please provide your feedback about my profile:

Demographic: Male, 28, India

Educational Background: B.Tech. Mechanical Engineering, GPA 3.3

GMAT - 660(81%) - Quant 49 , Verbal 31.

Work experience: I have 6 years of work experience including 3 years of experience working as a SAP BI consultant where I grew into the role of a teamlead managing a team of 80 consultants. The reminder as an entrepreneur as the CEO of an Engineering Manufacturing Plant with end to end responisbilties of supervision of procurement of raw materials, production of finished products, financial management, marketing and Human resources management. I am also serving as a Director and share holder in a Ferro Alloys Manufacturing Unit in India for the last 2 years.

Recommendations: I am planning to submit the following recommendations:
* My supervisor from my time as SAP BI consultant
* Managing Director of the company I am serving as a director.
* Head of the mechanical department of my undergrad institute.

Extracurriculars: I am an active Volunteer to an Non-government Organisation(NGO) in India and work as the managing administrator of an Industrial Training Institute run by the NGO. This institute in rural part of India provides industrial training to poor and underpriviged students. Such training enables the kids to have much better job opportunities as the part of a skilled work force and work as machine operators, electrician etc.

Goals: My goal is to continue learning and make myself better at problem solving, leadership, and decision making. I want to get into an instute which can provide me the fundamentals to become the best person I can be and contribute to my company and society to the best of my abilities.

Schools: I am interested in the fields of Finance, Entrepreneurship and International Trade preferably in the top 25 B-schools in the US. I am open to suggestion regarding the schools which would be best suited for me.I would prefer the schools in the south east region of the United States but will be willing to move elswhere for a good college.

Here are the schools I'm considering:
* Duke University (Fuqua) ,
* University of Virginia (Darden) ,
* Emory University (Goizueta)
* University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (Kenan-Flagler)
* Havard ( not sure this is a good idea with my GMAT score though)

But I am looking for thoughts if I can get into the top 20 schools with my GMAT score and profile or if I need to improve my GMAT score. Also I need advice about the school I should be applying and how I should go about it.

Thank you

Hi jit007,

I recommend that you take the GMAT test again if you are very interested in attending the business schools you listed or other top programs. The reason is, for example with Chicago Booth, the 80% GMAT score range is 660-760. This means that with your score, you would be applying in the bottom 10th percentile. Although this does not mean you would not be accepted, it is not a preferable position to be in.

Regarding schools you would be interested in, are more interested in entrepreneurship, finance, or international trade? Some schools put more focus into some of these areas than others. Columbia is well regarded for its finance program, but it has also been focused on its entrepreneurship program more recently.

I hope this was of help.
