Hi there,

You've got some really strong aspects to your profile but it's impossible to figure out your chances without a GMAT score. When in September do you take it? I'm deferring to after you have a score in hand because until then this is a purely hypothetical conversation.

Good luck prepping for it though and once you take it let us know how you did and we'll talk schools and chances!

Hi Bhavik,

I wrote GMAT last week and scored 730. This was my first attempt and I believe this is a decent score. Please share your opinion about my profile.

Hey there,

That's a GREAT score! Congratulations mate!

Ok, with that in, I think you've got a really good profile. You have all the necessary pieces. Your work experience is a little light in absolute terms but I think you have the scope and impact that would lend itself to some strong experiences. In your case, more than most, you'll need to showcase those years and experiences. Remember, you're going toe to toe against people who have more years and more responsibility. So it's a question of how do you look spectacular while still being honest.

You have a shot at most if not all those programs (to varying degrees). However, let me ask you this - what do you want to do with an MBA? The programs you've listed are pretty different and enable different goals. Is there something specific you'd like to do afterwards? Any particular industry? Any particular geography?

We can definitely go back and forth on the forum if you'd like or you can sign up for a consultation with us here. I handle all of them so it would just take our conversation offline which might be easier. But your call!

Chat soon!

Your extracurricular experience is very laudable.

You are very competitive for ISB, NUS, and NTU, competitive for INSEAD and stretching into Wharton. But why are you only looking to apply to Wharton in the U.S.? With more information, I can provide you with more guidance.
