Hi Linda

The following is more profile and shortlisted schools. Do you think I should target more schools or my list is decent enough?

Profile:
GMAT: 640 (Q48,V31)
Nationality: India
Undergrad: GPA 3.3 (Equiv) Mechanical Engr (Bombay)
Grad GPA: GPA 3.82 Industrial Engr (State Univ. of NY)
Experience: 5+ years of Manufacturing and Plant Floor Control systems integration with GM. Six Sigma Black Belt.
Other: Active member of several professional bodies and semi-active with some non-professional organizations.

B-School: I'm considering a consulting program with focus on Operations Management and/or Technology management (with Manufacturing as the core)

Shortlist:
Sloan/MIT-LFM- Dream program but may be a long shot
Ross/UMich - MBA-TMI (Tauber)
Krannert/Purdue - MTM Program (Manufacturing and Technology Managment)
Tepper/CMU - Operations Management
IU-Kelley - Consulting (Core) with Strategy (Minor)

I've been researching the above schools extensively and I strongly believe each in its own right is an excellent match as far as my long term goals are concerned.

How would you rate my profile for these schools and would you recommend any other programs that I should consider?

Regards,
Vikram

Vikram,

You've done your research well. Those schools are excellent considering your goals. Your GMAT however is really going to hurt you at MIT and Michigan. Even CMU is a stretch. If you think you can raise it, I suggest you retake.

BTW, Accepted.com is hosting chats over the next two weeks with the admissions directors of CMU, Michigan, and MIT. Please check the MBA admissions chat schedule.

Thanks for your quick response.

Will seriously consider a retake. I guess my only concern is timing. LFM deadling is Dec 15 and I don't know if 4 weeks is enough to improve my verbal score.

What about Purdue and IU?

They're good, especially Purdue.
