School Selection Assistance needed: Indian IT Male GMAT 720 [#permalink] New post 05 Nov 2013, 08:34
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 (Happy Students, 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. Do i need to add a few more reach schools ?

Please do let me know if you require more info.

Hey there avenger,
First of all fantastic GMAT! Second great that you have REAL leadership! this will be very valuable and is a big selling point for you.

Third, I don't have enough info about your job to REALLY evaluate you (responsibilities, achievements, promotions)... but I'll do what I can.

On your list Duke and ISB are toughest. Some of the others a bit easier (McDonough and Kelly), so if your work experience is very good+ with this list you should have a shot.

You WILL have to hurry up though! :)

One more VERY important thing - BE UNIQUE... You are coming from a very very very tough pool, where many applicants seem similar, and what's worse, write similarly... so THINK first about your unique proposition BEFORE you tackle your essays!

And of course - Good luck.
