Round 3 - worth it for me? [#permalink] New post 09 Jan 2006, 05:40
750 GMAT Q49 V42
99 %ile
5.5 AWA 88%ile

3.4 GPA from top20 school (business major, school is top 5 for ugrad business)

2.5 yrs workex at an IT Consulting firm
1 year at a Management Consulting firm

Solid extracurriculars - president of an organization for Indian Professionals, started a community service organization in ugrad

I REALLLY want to go to business school this year.

I've already applied to Kellogg (one-year progr) for round 2.

Based on my stats, I think I can aim for a top-tier business school...
Do you think it would be worth my time/money to apply for H/S/W this year? What programs have the best chance for round 3 admission?

None of these 3 programs have a good chance of acceptance round 3. It isn't impossible, but it is more difficult and less likely round 3 than earlier rounds.

You certainly have a competitive profile for Kellogg, but you don't have a guarantee of acceptance. If you really wan to start b-school this year, you should apply next round. And if you want to apply to H/S/W, then by all means do so, but also apply to excellent schools that aren't H/S/W and that do support your goals.

What do you want to do after you MBA?

Good luck!

Thank you Linda...

Right now, I work for a Healthcare Management Consulting organization. After MBA I want to work for a general Management Consulting firm.

What are some good schools to consider? I also am interested in Entrepreneurship and Real Estate.

For purposes of your application, choose one goal.

Consider Duke, Wharton, Tuck, Darden, Michigan and Haas.

Good luck!
