1) Brief description of full-time work experience. - Market Research Associate with 1 year of work (Background Engg) Wanted to get a head start in the marketing profile so started with this industry..Its a 5 year old startup..so no brand points either
2) GMAT- 760
3) College info: State University (India) , CGPA of 7.52, Civil Engg -2012
4) ECCA: Gaming (Strategic Multiplayer Team games)..have won several inter college or state level tournaments and online tournaments
5) Important certifications- None besides Courses in Data analytics and a few others on course era
6) Target program- Plan to apply for ROSS Michigan
7) Plan to apply- Fall 15 or 16
8) Your post-MBA goal- MR & Gaming media consulting...Preferably a combination of both

Is Ross a stretch?(Whats my best shot given that fall 16 is my deadline)
Can I ever have a profile good enough to be accepted at Ross ? (btw have joined up NGO's)
Where do I lag?

Thank You
J:L

Hello,

I’m happy to say that I believe you are a qualified candidate for Ross! Your academics are solid (assuming a decent grad record), your GMAT is relatively high for Ross, and your career goals are focused and differentiate you. They also build on your interests.

Your work experience being non-big-brand is fine – you must however clarify the type of organization and the breadth of your role. And discuss your reasons for joining this firm that you mention – desire to get more experience faster. Of course, your being qualified implies that you have a strong work track record of impact and leadership. If this is not the case, it weakens your chances.

To make your application stand out, really show your enthusiasm for your target field, and clarify how you will be a contributor and bring something special to this field.
