Request for Profile Evaluation [#permalink] New post 01 May 2013, 18:53
Hi

I would request to please evaluate my profile and please suggest me wahether the schools i have mentioned are at par and what could be other schools where i could apply. my profile is as follows

GMAT 700(Q49,V35)
GPA 79% Computer Science Engineering
WE 4.5 years in IT(TCS) with diverse experience given below
worked in research and development team , technologies such as RFID and presently working in Insurance domain.

in research and development had the experience of working in some innovative projects such as TV Audience Measurement in real time and Context Aware Recommender System ,both these projects started of as mere ideas (trying to capitalise on stuff which had not been explored as of yet ) and became full projects which were presented in front of client , the Trp project was presented infront of ACNeilson(a big advertisment company) which helped my company win a big bid with the company and they also agreed to colaborate with us on future R&D endevours .Also from each of these 2 projects i have under my name 2 publications in well known international conferences and 2 patents filed, we have our papers published on IEEEExplore and a mere search is enough to find us there.
I was also a part of not only the development and testing of these projects but also mots of the customer interaction as well , i was assigned form my project with the added role of presenting /demonstrating in front, getting their feedback etc of the client due to my good communication skills .We also one the best team award for the Trp project and got certificates for the same.

After that i have been working as a performance test engineer in Insurance domain and have been looking at the performance aspect of our solution for not only my project but also the various projects using the same product , i have also worked on development, customization and also functional testing to some extent .
I have also been an active member of some clubs which affiliate in communication,debate etc and have a few certificates .
I have been working with some important people in my organization and as i move ahead to oversee a lot more project i am sure that an mba degree will certainly help to not only hone my skills in areas such as leadership,consulting etc but also increase the knowledge required to take on bigger roles in organizations.

I am applying in R1 this year and want to know my chances in the following schools

1 ISB
2 NUS
3 Dardon
4 Johnson
5 Tepper
6 Ross
7 Hass
8 NTU

please advise whether these schools are ok to apply to considering my profile my chances ,and what could be other good schools to apply to other than these , also any suggestions on how to improve my profile , also please suggest whether i need to join some NGO for applying to US schools and how important can certifications be .Also is it mandatory to give TOFEL.

Thanks for the help in advance
Awaiting replies eagerly

Sidd,


Thanks for your post.

ISB, Darden, Johnson, Ross, and Haas are stretch schools you have a competitive profile for the other schools on your list.

While your technical experience is impressive, you will need to work to show the business application and relevance of your work. Not only the relevance, but that you had responsibility for or were at least interested in the business implications of the technical solutions you developed.

I can't recommend schools without knowing what you want to do after your MBA.
Best,
Linda
