Hi all,
I am in a very much confused state regarding my application to B schools.Let me say about my profile first :

GMAT SCORE:720

GPA-7/10 -->from a top 10 institution in india

Work exp:Indian IT industry.work experience will be 3 years during the date of joining in college

Started a company named Returnwealth financial services-independent equity resarch firm for last 2 years and been rated as one of the very wel growing companies in my place ..

Goal: to wor in an investment firm for few years and start a own company and to project it to a world class level.

So planning to pursue MBA in finance

Been awarded as champion at work in a very ample amount of time when i joined the company

Been Placement co-ordinator and IEEE chairman in my college

District level cricket player and been represented as captain of my college team

Active volunteer of NSS during the college level



I want experts to advise me on the following things

1) Which colleges do i get good chance to get into.Really confused on this because of my very low work experience.

2)My very low work experience say 3 years while joining will that impact much and which colleges prefer these kind of people?

3)If i retake and get 750 in GMAT will that be more helpfull stil?

Really will be very thankful for your advises

Well, I'm missing one big and very important piece of information here - and that is detail regarding your company, it's size, success and potential, as this will be the primary thing that your profile will be judged on. so let's hold on till we get more info before passing judgement. Two years is usually a bit on the low side for entering Bschool, but if you have been pretty successful and can show a real need, it may not make a difference in your case. Feel free to drop us a line directly or share your info here.

In that case, things look pretty good. You gotta make a good case to the school for your personal potential as a leader, and for the growth of your company. also, do what you can to show that NOW is the moment for you to apply (and not later) and I think you will have a good shot at Top 10 schools. (I assume you will be applying next year R1??? As it's already pretty late to think about R2).

since your focus is in Finance, I'd look at HBS, Columbia, Wharton, Tuck, Sloan, booth, NYU, Duke, and Johnson as a safe school for starters.

And regarding your GMAT - well a 750 is much better than a 720. you don't need to retake but if you think you have a good chance of getting higher, it can''t hurt. On the other hand if you feel a 720 is near your max, don't bother killing yourself. A 720 is higher than all schools' averages anyhow...
