School Selection Assistance needed: Indian IT Male GMAT 720 [#permalink] New post 03 Nov 2013, 23:26
Hi,

My GMAT score is 720(Q49/V40).
Engineering - 78.2% from non-IIT, non-REC institute.

I would like to apply to a full time MBA program for FALL 2014.


A few more details about my profile:-

I will have close to 5yrs of experience as an IT Business Analyst (Big 4) by the time i start the MBA program. I lead a team of 4 and will be promoted in 6-8 months to the level of Assistant Manager. Quite a few professional awards. No certifications.

I have some leadership experience in NGOs in Hyderabad. I have also won awards at national level technical competitions during engineering.

Why MBA - I want to get into the Management/Strategy consulting line. B-schools which have tie ups with BCG, Bain, McKinsey, etc will help me achieve this. Or, if a B-school is located in a city with good consulting companies, that would do too. IT consulting would be my backup option.

My current list of schools:

Darden, UVA (Gen Management, Consulting)
Fuqua, Duke University (Consulting)
National Univ of Singapore (Singapore Location)
Goizueta, Emory University (Consulting, Career Services)
Indian School of Business, Hyderabad (At Home :))
McDonough, Georgetown Univ (DC location)
Kelley, Indiana Univ (Alum Network)



It would be great if you can let me know which of these institutes are reach/achievable. I would also appreciate it if you could recommend any other schools.

Please do let me know if you require more info.

At first blush, your profile may seem fairly typical for your applicant pool, but if you can weave a compelling narrative in your application, one that emphasizes your big four experience and team leadership, you should have a shot at your target list. It's really all in how you couch your story and how you demonstrate you have the right experience to position yourself for your post MBA consulting career. Lots of folks will have a similar profile to yours so you need to keep it very personal and explain what you have done in a way which is unique to you. Let us know if we can help.

Thank you for your inputs Bryant :)
I will try to differentiate myself from the applicant pool through my leadership/mentoring experiences.
