I am in dire need of advice. A very bright student in school and college, I decided in the fourth year of my college that I want to do MBA. I gave my CAT and got 93 percentile. Though I could have applied for MBA colleges in India but I was aspiring for IIM's. I joined an IT company and again gave CAT. This time i got a percentile of 95. I got an interview from IIM Indore but was not shortlisted. At that time I was having 2 yrs of experience in hand. I decided to give GMAT. I gave my first GMAT in April 2011 and got a score of 640. I again gathered my strength and gave it a second time in December. This time I got a score of 690 which is a pretty decent score. I applied in the below colleges:
1)Duke fuqua(2nd round)
2)Texas -Mays(2 nd round)
3)NUS (first round)
I received not invited from all the three
I got really disheartened. I want to know where I went wrong . Should have I applied in first round ? Did I apply to wrong colleges? I want to do MBA but my pursuit is giving me hard time . Now I have three choices:
Again give GMAT to get a higher score : Though it would be risky but I am ready to put more hard work. But is it worth ??
I am currently a software engineer working in an IT company as a Senior system Engineer. I am performing a role of Team Lead.
I am thinking of changing my job . So in this case which profile I should apply for which will help me in MBA profile build up too?
Choice 3: I apply for Spring Admissions.
Seriously I am tired of looking for colleges on NET . Could you suggest me in which colleges I can apply?
Experience :2.8 years in IT.
Please let me know the answer for my questions and suggest me so that I am able to take decision.
For me MBA is my current priority.
