Profile evaluation request - GMAT 730 with employment gap. [#permalink] New post 18 Sep 2010, 18:41
Hi,

I'm an applicant from India.

I worked with a top electronics manufacturer (globally and not just in India) for just under 3 years. I quit my job to take some time to prepare for GMAT as well as a well needed break - my past 2 years were spent shuttling between India and another country. Living 2 years in-and-out of hotels is enough to dis-illusion anyone. :|

Also, I took this opportunity to change my field. I'm employed again, but with a gap (which it took to find employment in a new field).

My under-graduate degree is in engineering from a very reputed institute in India and I have very good extra-curriculars.

My academics were not brilliant, but always remained above average. :)

I understand that an employment gap looks bad, but with a decent score like 730 and an almost 4 year work experience ( a lot of it international) before admission - what colleges should I try for and what realistic chance do I have in them ?

I cant really comment on the colleges that you need to apply to. But what i can say is if your essays are convincing and if you explain the gap in your work exp well enough, I dont think there should be any big issues.

your GMAT is competitive enough. ATB
