Hi All - bb/Jonaddmissionado/ Manhattanreview/ evryone,
OK, so i will try n be concise and give a clear, honest to heart picture...but to start with, let me thank all you guys in advance, Appreciate ur efforts so so so much
I gave my GMAT on 14th mar,13 and gt 690(Q48,V37) score. I'll highlight the imp stuff and focus on my strength's and weaknesses.
born and brought up in New Delhi , India.
Secondary and senior secondary School: xth and xii th standard - 86% and 82%
undergrad - B.tech in computer sciences frm Delhi - 4yrs - first div
Hold a PMP (Project mgmt professional - PMI) , A couple more certification.
For past 3 yrs , have been working in HP singapore(earlier in Ericsson/ HCL tech) as a senior consultant and earning a 100k+ (n hv saved up some money for my MBA
) . I have about 7 yrs of exp, decent international exp.
worked in US/Hongkong/Singapore/India, and can show achievements\ progress made in my career.
Job profile - IT Consulting/ pre sales/ CRM / Project management ...handled big multi million $ project , worked for Singapore govt/ Hongkong Hotel and casino company/ 2 US fortune 500 companies etc.
Also I have worked extensively in multi cultural work env with people from different backgrounds and geographies.
I am v passionate about educating myself, Although I come from a humble background, and money\big office n all that jazz is not my objective for doin an MBA.
I was fortunate enough to work with some great people and they have a strong influence on me, and therefore I would like to make a substantial difference for all the under privileged in my home state. I have a plan and a solid MBA from one of top schools is a step in that plan.
I think I can do good in the interview, have always been a people person, communication is not a problem for me. I plan to major in Strategic planning\Sales\marketing.
Weakness is that my undergrad is NOT from a TOP univ, Its an avg\above avg state univ. Although i have tried to get industry level certifications like PMP \other mgmt certification, to mitigate this.
I am listing down 2 sets of schools ( preference wise), I need ur help in evaluating whether I have a possible chance in getting through and it would be great if u could quantify my chances too.1st Preference:
Oxford - Said
GMATPrep 1: 670
GMATPrep 2 : 710
