School suggestion and profile evaluation, gmat 770, business [#permalink] New post 12 Aug 2011, 14:00
Hi All,

I posted here about a month ago but I just retook the gmat and scored a 770 q49 v46. Would be great to know what schools come to your mind when you read through my profile.

I am Indian, Male. will be 26 at matriculation next year
I graduated from Purdue University, West Lafayette in electrical engineering with a GPA of 3.62 in 2007
At purdue I was involved in a cancer research project for over an year. I also interned with Motorola in chicago over the summer before my senior year.

Upon graduation I worked with Lutron Electronics in PA for 6 months as a "project electrical engineer" where I designed and executed automated testing equipment for several lutron products. At Lutron I was also involved in leading two outsourcing projects to vendors in India and Mexico.

While I was enjoying my work at Lutron, An opportunity came my way to take up a big project in my family business (real estate development in India), my entrepreneurial instincts took over and I decided to move back to India and join the family business. For the first 2.5 years I was responsible for leasing out commercial space in our shopping mall to national and international retail brands. I was managing a team of 3 sales executives for the project and was supervised by the leasing division vice president.

For the past 1.5 years I have been managing my own luxury residential construction projects in Delhi which are funded by our investors. I interact with my team of vendors, engineers, architects, contractors, investors and government authorities as required to ensure smooth functioning of the project. These projects are luxury residences which I construct and each villa is valued over 3 mill.

Also for the past three years I have been an active participant and volunteer for the Art of Living foundation and have organized cleaning drives, rallies to promote bicycle riding against global warming, given intro talks about the foundation and participated in advance courses. I am also looking to become a teacher for the organization in the next year so that I can further take courses to teach people about meditation/ yoga/ community service

Through my MBA I am looking to enhance my general management skills, interact and network with peers and professionals from the real estate and finance sectors, convert the construction of these luxury residences into a self–sustainable model and then enter affordable housing market (more for social entrepreneurial reasons than the money) through at least two large-scale projects in India, in the first three years post my MBA.

I really appreciate your advice.

Thanks,

I think you have some very interesting stories that you can share with the adcoms, as well as with the rest of your new classmates. Your GPA and GMAT (wow!) will help you here big time. AdComs won't have any doubt about your intellectual ability, but rather, you need to shine in your essays and the subsequent interviews. You have a shot at the top b-schools and while I can't really name schools that will fit with the goal you mentioned, I can say that top 15 b-schools shouldn't be a problem. It will rest upon how well you execute your applications and how much luck you have as well. H/S/W will be a hard for anyone and most people have stellar GPA and GMAT. So you're going to have to bring something else to the table here. But I do think you have a shot at any of the top schools.
