Request to evaluate profile - GMAT 690 (Indian, IT, Male) [#permalink] New post 01 Aug 2013, 06:52
Hi,

I would really appreciate it if you could spare a few minutes to evaluate my profile. I am planning to join an MBA program in 2014.

Academics:
[*]School: 86% in both my 10th and 12th Grades.
[*]UG: 68% (I'm among the top 20% in the class), Computer Science and Engineering, Non - IIT
[*]GMAT: 690 (Q48, V35) Have not received the AWA and IR scores, but I've done them quite well.

Work Experience:

[*]I work as an application developer.
[*]Will have 4+ years of experience in a leading IT company by the time I plan to join the MBA program (in 2014).
[*]Got promoted within 2 years of getting confirmed in the company.
[*]Have received a number of certificates and appreciations from clients for my performance in various development projects.
[*]Have led a team of 3.

Extra-curriculars and Interests:
[*]Have represented my school at the national level in Table Tennis
[*]Part of my company's Table Tennis team, which has won a national level inter-corporate tournament.
[*]I read a lot, and play most sports.

Short-Term Goal:
To work with a reputed consulting firm.

Target Schools: Duke, Emory, Cornell, Tepper, Kelley

Am I looking at the correct schools or do I need to go higher (or lower)?
As for retaking the GMAT, I don't think I can get more than a 710 - would a 710 improve my chances?

Thanks for your time and advice in advance.
Regards,
Sam.

Duke, Tepper, and Cornell are stretch programs.
You have a competitive profile for Emory and Kelley.

You may also want to consider UNC and Vanderbilt.

A 710 would improve your chances somewhat, but I'm not sure it's worth the retake.

Best,
Linda
