I just came across GMATclub & have been following it since some time.
I have been thinking & searching a lot about admissions though I need someone expert to review & suggest on my profile.
I wish to apply to Fall ' 2010. And, I have not appeared for GMAT yet. Planning to appear in August '09.Profile :
1) 23, Male, Indian.
2) Educational Background :
Undergrad - Bachelor of Engg. - Electronics & telecommunication.
From reputed college & university.
But, have frequently participated in other competitions.
Certificate in technical paper presentation.
Not so good academics. (have some personal reason). I don't know how to calculate GPA.
But my final year % = 62%.
3) Work Experience :
1 Year. 2 Year at matriculation. Role = Design Engineer. Industry = Electronics. Company = Honeywell.
I have got some analytical work, cost analysis & reduction. Can elaborate about analytical skills required & challenged, in essays. Plus technical work. Found some problems in existing product of company, solved those myself. Will be Six Sigma certified professional by August.
4) Extra curricular / Leadership / Community :
Pretty much stronger here. But don't have certificates.
Managed national level competition at Undergrad college.
After competing undergrad had taken a break for 10 months. Worked for local "Lions club" here. As it's a rural area, suggested & implemented some innovative ideas to raise money. Also working on one idea which will be implemented in this October. The amount raised through these functions is substantial. Worked on some big projects.
Can show a lot of 'Leadership skills' here. Also, should be able to get Recommendation letter from a person with whom I have worked in Lions Club.
Have won 'Avatar' competition on one of the forum, this year. So can elaborate on marketing skills & creativity.5) Goals :
Strategic Consulting & Entrepreneurship.
Company = McKinsey / Boston.
Focus on electronics industry.
I have a business plan ready & some business ideas. Did that myself. Can elaborate on that in essays.6) Schools :
Not finalised. A lot depends on GMAT score. I am eying 750+ score as I am targeting only Top 20. If I get a good GMAT score, will even apply to H & W.
I know they are out of reach but will apply just for the sake of it.
In any case, if I get less than 700 I don't think I will apply.
And, if you can ,please suggest school. I would like to enter a school (if I have a liberty to chose, that is
) which emphasizes more on exp. based learning & case study approach.
