Profile Review Please- 730 GMAT [#permalink] New post 01 Nov 2012, 09:47
Hey can someone please provide their opinion of how good a chance I stand for Harvard, Wharton, Kellog, Booth or MIT Sloan?
GMAT- 730- Verbal 38, Quant-50
Undergrad from NIT Surat (GPA 7.8/10)- Also have a Joint double degree from MDI Gurgaon (GPA-6.49) and ESCP Europe (France, course Master in Management) (14.6 ECTS/20)- All very respected colleges
Work Experience in detail- (June'11 to Aug'13) My role is Corporate Investment Banking in a Prominent Investment Bank in New Delhi- Key deals include raising 4 Billion $ for a Petrochemical Complex, Debt Restructuring of India's largest domestic Glass company (saving 500 jobs) and Project appraisals of a 5 star hotel, a large gas pipeline and Acquisition Advisory for Assets worth upto 1.2 Billion $ in the Shale Gas Domain in America (for an Indian Company). My work is dealing with Banks, Clients, Consultants, creating financial model and info report. I have also worked on Business development and got business worth over 100,000 $ for the company

I also work part time at an NGO teaching english to orphan kids (Since August'11)

I have good extra curriculars and was actively involved in Organizational activities and in Music.

Short term- I want to shift to a PE player abroad. My work is quite similar to what goes on in a PE (including M&A, syndication and Debt restructuring). I want a global environment and an international career. I would prefer to shift towards the equity side from the Debt side and will prefer exposure to other more consumer oriented sectors instead of Oil& Gas & Infra.


Long term goals: Would like to shift to a VC firm or explore opportunities in subsidiaries (where the parent PE or VC has invested). I will prefer to become an enterpreneur if I ever do get the opportunity.

My preference of area to settle - region wise- USA or any part of the developed world.


Please let me know whether I stand a good chance.

I think that you have a good profile and some great goals. Your work experience is impressive and the community service and extra-curricular activities are an added bonus. I think that you have a competitive profile for Booth/Kellogg/MIT.

However, you will only have 2 years of work experience and the average at most of these schools is closer to 5. Are you planning on applying next year, right? I think that your chances will greatly increase if you wait another year or two and continue to gain experience.

Best of luck.

You have a good profile and I like how focused your goals are. You sound like you've accomplished a lot in your relatively young career. If you can show the committees that you have accelerated faster than your peers and that can be supported in your recommendation letters, then I see no reason why you shouldn't apply now or next year.

However, as you know, you come from an over represented demographic. So you'll just need to make sure that you write good essays and show the schools why you want to go there.
