Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Undergrad - Engineering from an average college in India MBA from one of the IIMs (0 pre-MBA work experience)
Age: 30 (when I apply next year)
4 Years in Sales and Marketing with a tech MNC 2.5 years of entrepreneurship experience in the Training and Media sector
GMAT - 740 GPA - ~ 3.6 in UG and ~ 3.4 in PG (converted and not normalized) - My score * Topper's Score / 4. Crude, yes.
Strong Extra-curricular activities and leadership roles.
I wish to learn, network and grow more into the Marketing/Big Data areas and right now will salivate at a PE role within the Tech sector. I realize the need to build a good, logical and convincing story, which I *think* I possess/ My story isn't about 'I got bored with X. Therefore, I need to do Y'
I believe that I can write very good essays. I can get good (!) letter of recommendations from people who have worked with me and people whom I have reported to.
Queries: 1. Is a honest story like this convincing enough? 2. I am looking at the Top Schools but the question is whether they will be interested in someone with a profile like mine? 3. I know which ones strictly knock second MBA aspirants out of the park (Haas, Tuck, Duke, Cornell, UCLA..) Any suggestions on schools to focus?
If you have any other observations / impressions / suggestions that will help me consider / reconsider / mull over, it will be very helpful!
Thanks for posting. I recommend you read this case study of a candidate who was accepted into MIT Sloan for his second MBA. There are unique challenges you will face, and hopefully the below will help you address some of this: http://www.stacyblackman.com/2011/08/25 ... econd-mba/
