Thanks for trying our essay evaluation service! Please try registering again. I think it's working:
http://www.mbagameplan.com/registration_member.asp

I think you have a pretty good list of schools there, but what do you want to do after business school? That will be a big part of determining which schools are the best fit for you.

Hmm... Sorry... I think it should work. Try again...

I encourage you to think more about your career goals post-MBA. If you're looking to stay in technology, tehn why do you need an MBA? (You don't need to convince me, but you do need to convince adcomms that you have good reasons!)

Hi Scot

While submitting the data on the registration page gives me " HTTP 500 - Internal server error Internet Explorer " :cry:

Goals:
Short Term Goal: I want to work for a big consulting firm preferrably IT consulting firm. Here i can add the learning and experience of B-schools to my work experience. But i am also open to other consulting fields such as strategies.
I want to shift to IT consulting.. I dont have any experience in consulting projects and its almost impossible to shift to a consulting firm without a MBA :( isnt?

Long Term Goal:
I want to start my own consulting firm in India ten years from now. After 10 years India will be leading the world in IT and consulting will be hugely in demand.

It's hard to get into management consulting (McKinsey, Bain, etc.) without an MBA, but you should be able to get into IT consulting without one.

My only other caution is that your background and goals sound VERY similar to those of other Indian applicants (heavy IT, "I want to start a tech consulting company," etc.). For Indian applicants, their toughest challenge is usually standing out from the pack. You'll need to put a lot of emphasis on your leadership experiences, community involvement, hobbies... Basically, everything that shows that you're more than just a techie! This will help a lot.

I'm sorry about the site... I still can't replicate the problem. I've successfully registered a couple of accounts on my own. Contact me directly and I'll try to help you.
