Work Ex: Consultant(Energy) in one of the Big 4 consulting firms from June 2012 (Planning to apply for Fall 2014 - clocking in a little over 2 years of work exp)
- Currently spearheading projects in the fields of public policy centered on energy efficiency and renewable energy
- Active in CSR activities as well as intra office activities

Projects:
- conducted an energy audit of a petroleum refinery for 6 months, the observations and sugestions of which resulted in significant savings for the refinery. (Undergrad project)

Hi Varun,

You can target b-schools for 2014 intake whose GMAT range fall between 590-740 like: Haas, Duke, Darden, Ross, Cornell, McCombs, Booth, Kellogg, Tuck, Tepper, Kenan-Flagler , ISB and USC-Marshall. You can also try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool. Well you can mention about headship qualities, skills and professional achievements in your application essays & demonstrate the same during final interviews.

Let me know in case of other concerns you might have.

Cheers!!
Neha
Giving KUDOS is a decent way of saying thanks…
