The problem with Indian Male in IT [#permalink] New post 24 Feb 2008, 20:42
Hi Paul,
Have a few questions:
1) Is the problem more on Indian or the IT male or both? I am a Chinese IT male, am I going to face the same oversubscribed problem?

2) I immigrated to England when I was 15 (I am 26 now). Will schools treat me as a "Chinese" or "Britons"?

thanks

acwong,

The problem is the three qualities in combination: Indian + IT + male. An Indian woman whose career does focus on technology has very different prospects IMO an Indian male working as an IT consultant. Males who work in IT (regardless of culture) are an extremely common applicant pool, perhaps the most common of all. Chinese also apply to B-school in large numbers, so a "Chinese male IT" applicant is also going to have to work harder to stand out from the crowd. One of the ways you could do that is through nationality, so your British citizenship partially offsets the commonness of your profile. I therefore recommend that you make the most of it in your essays. If you have unusual interests, unusual community involvements, or unusual personal or international experiences they could also help you alot in standing out.

Good luck,
