Hi,

I am thinking of applying for US B Schools for fall 2013 admit. I started late and hence could not gather much info. Before its too late, I need some input so that I can apply before Jan deadline.

Here is my profile..

12th – 96% (Top 10 in the school)
Engineering – 75.4 (First Class with distinction)
GMAT – 690 – Q48 V37

Work Ex:
• I have been working with an Indian IT Services company for the past 6 years.
• In my Current role as SME, I am mentoring a team of 15-20 members across different geographies
• I have been a module lead
• Have a couple of awards at my workplace. One of the youngest to get star of the month award.
• Have an international experience of 11 months. Have interacted with people from different cultures throughout
• Have been recommended for client facing role by each of my managers

Extra Curricular:
• Passed the HSK Level 2 Listening and Reading (an internationally recognized Mandarin Language Certification). This is equivalent to A2 in CEFR for languages. Also passed HSK Beginner spoken test
• Have worked with an NGO. Was the Centre Head for a team of 20 volunteers and 25 students

2. What are my chances of scholarship at the schools mentioned above?
3. What are the other schools I should try?
4. If I improve my GMAT score in April/May, will these schools consider that for scholarship (after admission offer is made)?

Thanks.

Hi,

You have excellent academics and your professional background looks impressive. Apart from the schools you have short listed, you should also target good b-schools with high consultancy placement rate like: Duke, Cornell, McDonough, Darden, Tepper, Vanderbilt, Texas-Mays, Urbana-Champaign & Purdue-Krannert .The average GMAT Score for these B-Schools fall in between 570-760 range, you have good chances of being admitted for 2013 intake.

With 6 yrs. of work experience,which usually b-schools looks for,you are in perfect stage of your career. I would strongly suggest you to immediately start working on your essays & recommendations for these Business Schools. It would be prudent to seek aid from expertise consultants for direction on preparing application and get your essays & scholarship essays evaluated before sending it out along with your application.

Feel free to post any other query or concern that you might have. You can also PM me your number for selection of right b-schools.

Cheers!!
