Hope all of you are having a good time.

I need help to choose my MBA school and scholarships/Graduate Assistant or any other financial support. So, below you will find some highlights of my profile along with the constraints I am facing.


Education Plans
Interested in - MBA (Full Time)
Countries in which I am interested - USA, UK & Australia


Profile Highlights

Class X - 82.9%
Class XII - 82.9%
Professional Education - B.E. Mechanical Engineering (4-Years) - University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore, Pakistan
CGPA - 3.78
Work Experience - 3 years to date at Management Positions
Organizations worked at - Unilever (1.25 years) & British American Tobacco (1.75 years)
GMAT Score - 550
International Representation - Have represented Pakistan twice at Leadership Training Conference held on the platform of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) at USA


Constraints

Financial Issues - Need a scholarship in order to pursue an expensive program like MBA
Low GMAT Score - Although it can be improved, as this was my first attempt for GMAT. However, I would like to only improve if you would suggest me keeping in view as a necessary requirement for scholarship


So, summarizing, in view of the above information, I would be seeking for your advice to get admission in one of the good business schools with a fully funded scholarship. I know, that my GMAT score is less but it can be overcome with my GPA and management work experience with leading multi-nationals of the world at good management positions.

Looking forward to your reply & advice.

Schools do not guarantee scholarships.
However, your odds increase as you become a higher caliber applicant (not even sure if that's the right terminology) than average.... meaning you are less likely to attend a school.

As an easy way, I would recommend focusing on schools with 50-100 points of Average GMAT Score below your score...

Hi Farhan,

Undoubtedly you must write GMAT again and aim for 690+ to be able to apply in good b-school(s). You must also showcase headship skills, achievements in or outside work place and maturity while writing application essays and demonstrate professionalism & ability to work with others during the final interviews. Your scholarship chances will also depend on well you position yourself in essays and interviews. You may try your chances in b-school(s) by clicking http://www.apphelp.co.in/b-school-selector.php

Let me know in case of further queries. You may PM your details for discussion in length.

Regards
Erina
