What do you want to do after your MBA and where do you want to do it? Do you have any idea what your GMAT score will be?

HI,

I am planning on two things right now:

1. i plan to move back to software industry after my MBA and get into greater management roles.

2. i can go in for a not-so-famous school if schoarships are available.

3. i certainly have no idea what my GMAT would be. However, as per my scores in similar exams (maths olympiads, talent search exams)...i hope it will be competetive.

Assuming you have a GMAT score at or above the following schools' average for accepted students, consider CMU, MIT, Michigan, Duke, UT, Haas. There are transcripts of MBA admissions chatsif you click on the link.

In terms of extras, the schools value initiative, leadership, and teamwork. So you want to make sure that your profile includes those qualities. IN addition, the schools like people who are well-rounded, contribute to their communities, and don't just work. So make sure you have a hobby or two and do contribute to your community. Certainly a foreign language and international experience are also valued, but don't forget about community service or non-professional interests.

I sense that you are planning to apply next fall and you might be interested in our ebook Best Practices for 2005 MBA Admission.

Good luck!
