Hi,

Request you to review my Profile.
I plan to apply for the 2009 session in the top 20 Univs. Please let me know which universities should i target.

Age 25, Female, Indian with 3 yrs experience as of now.

BTech in Mechanical Engineering with 1.9 GPA (ie 69.5%)
Have been working as a software engineer in an MNC. Have lead 2 teams to successful project completion. Have 3 months international experience in Finland.
GMAT Score : 720 (Q:49 V:39) AWA 5.0 (this was my 2nd attempt)

Have been associated with 2 NGO's since 8 yrs working with Physically Challenged and Mentally Retarded Children. Taught them dance for raising funds.

Have learnt classical dance for 10 yrs, and completed diploma for the same.

Participated in & won numerous zonal level competitions in Athletics and Swimming during school. Was the Games Captain for my School

Was associated with the cultural society in my college, and won many choreography and western dance competitions.

Have been a part of the organizing committee for the university festival for 2 yrs.

Have been a regular organizer for various activities at my workplace and have cleared a few professional certifications related to my technology, also am Six Sigma Green Belt certified.

Can i compensate the low GPA with numerous extracurricular activities I was associated with?

Please recommend which universities should I target.

Thanks

agrima,

GPA and GMAT speak to your ability to handle business school academically, so your GMAT will compensate for your GPA to some extent. Extracurriculars don't say much about your academic preparedness. Your extracurriculars look good. You didn't mention your post-MBA goals so it's difficult to suggest specific schools, but based on what you gave me and using Business Week's top 20 I think you have a chance at Carnegie Mellon, Indiana, UNC Kenan-Flagler, and Texas.

Hope this helps,
