Dear all,

I am Pradeep, managing consultant - Risk manager, and of coz MBA aspirant, for a bit too long now.
I tried GMAT in 2010, 2011 managed 640 - 620 - 660. Some were unfortunate situations some were poor preperations. Finally managed to study for 3 months, had a not so bad GMAT exam experience and managed a 700.

Which raises my hope and want to put it to test and seek independent validation.

Here below i have provided my profile - academic, professional, extracurricular etc. Much appreciate if you could help me evaluate my profile.

Target B-Schools : LBS, INSEAD, IMD

Firm : Wipro
Work : Risk management for BU covering $700 million USD, Strategic decision Support - Investment, geoentry, partnering etc, Negotiations, dispute resolution, litigation analysis, performance improvement. Total contracts negotiated / design of performance management worth $2.6 billion USD.
Career Progress : grew from business development executive to heading risk management in 6 years

Education :
B.Tech - 9.45/10 or 4/4 ( department topper 3, college topper 1)
PGPM - Finance - 3.1/4 ( top 15% in the class)

Student reperesentative - Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers
Head knowledge management project
Founder of project 360 - Balanced Scorecard for School Children. Developed and under discussion.

Others:
I have been involved in helping shape up entrepreneurial ventures for more than 3 years now. Met couple of VCs and since then have become more focused in getting myself involved in this space.Here are my experiences in this field :
*** 3 years ago advised an beleaguered Auto components manufacturing firm in discovering costing problems and why an merger with a Portuguese company wouldn't work, unless set right first.
***I have been working with a london based payments start up to evolve their product strategy and helped position the case to Rothschild.. the project has a green light and already in touch with other firms.
***I am working with an India based Sports goods retailer, in exchange for a minor stake, to improve their sales, bring structure & get funding.


Thanks much
Pradeep

Hi Balapradeep,

I am not an expert but here's my view on your profile.

> You have around 8 years of work experience, plus you have mentioned the fact that in 6 years you were promoted from the execution level to a managerial level. This seems to be a good work ex for your target schools.
> Your academics are really strong.
> Your work experience and the extra curricular activities show your versatility, which is what the b schools look for.
> GMAT score of 700 is good, but i don't know how will admission officials will look at it considering that it was on your fourth attempt. But personally, I don't think that this would be a problem for you.

> Your chances of getting into your target B schools really depends on how well you write your essays.

> My view is that considering your profile, you should apply to INSEAD, IMD, LBS. You stand a good chance provided you write your essays well.

Regards,
Harish
