Hi!

I am currently researching MBA programs in the US to apply for the fall '14 intake. I've spent 2+ years in the manufacturing domain in operations and I'm looking to move on to consulting or general management roles in the manufacturing sector after my MBA.

Profile:

Undergrad - Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from a top-ranked government engineering college in India. Graduated first-class with distinction (8.58/10).

Work experience - 26 months (3 years upon matriculation) with a Fortune 500 manufacturing company in its Indian plant. Was recruited for its 3-year leadership development program in manufacturing. Have worked in 3 different functions within the plant as a part of the rotational program. Currently heading a production team as a section manager. Have led quite a few projects and developmental initiatives at work.

GMAT - 730 (50/38) IR-7 AWA-4

Other Details - Decent extra-curriculars. Have volunteered for social service initiatives while in college. Have been involved in organizing symposia in college.
I'm an avid quizzer and I've had a successful stint in robot-building contests. Was the editor of a college magazine.

Some of the schools I have in mind are Ross, Anderson, Kelley, UIUC, Tuck and Tepper.

Would like to know more about my chances of admission into these schools. Are there other suitable schools that I should consider? Also, what are the chances of my getting a scholarship with the admit?

Hi there,

Everything seems to be under control at your side. I hope you can explain that you were among a selected few for the rotaion program, and that your growth has been more than the average peers.
Your b school selection is alright- eventually it will boil down to your fit at any of these b-schools. Therefore it will be crucial for you to demonstrate your knowledge about the programs/ and how will they help you in achieving your career objectives. Additionally, tell the adcom why you would be a valuable asset for the class.

Reach out to discuss further,
