Profile Evaluation Request- THANK YOU SO MUCH! :) [#permalink] New post 16 Aug 2011, 04:32
Hello friends :)

If you could please give me some guidance and advice on my chances based on my statistics:

Age: 24, American Indian male

GPA: 3.5 (University of Texas Austin - triple majored - received B.B.A., B.S., and B.A. in four years) - Degrees were Business Marketing, Radio-Television-Film, Asian Cultures and Languages

GMAT: 710 (44V 44M) (this was my second try)

Work Experience: will have completed 2 years with Teach For India, also worked as a full time screenwriter for Bollywood soaps, and started up and founded a 501c3 non-profit organization

College Activities: Started a nationally competing Bollywood dance team, interned with a Texas representative, and was part of a philanthropy fraternity

What would you say would be my chances with:

Harvard/Stanford
Rice
University of Texas
Carnegie Mellon
Cornell/Columbia

Thanks so much for all of the incredible help!

phdprospect,

I would say that according to the information you have posted:
Harvard/Stanford/Columbia will be stretch schools
Texas/CMU/Cornell are fair shots
Rice seems to be fairly safe

Hello

Looking at the 2012 class profile at Columbia the students scored in the range of 680-760 in their GMAT. Looking at the 2012 class profile at Harvard the students scored in the range of 550-790 in their GMAT and the median GMAT score was 730. Hence a GMAT score of 700 plus is advisable if you are aiming for top institutes abroad. If you wish to apply to top business schools then one of the prerequisites is having significant work experience. Generally candidates have around 4-5 years of full time experience in spite of several term time projects or jobs; so you may be competing with other candidates who have 4-5 years of full time experience and have started significant initiatives at college.

Hence, we would advise you to gain some full time work experience before you decide to apply for an MBA. If you don’t wish to do so them, you could look at the HBS 2+2 program or the Yale Silver Scholars program.
