Lots of GC members praised Alex as a consultant and requested he be invited over here --now that's what I call a quick delivery, Praet!

Thanks to you for bringing another high-profile consultant here and to Alex for joining us.

I have a solid under grad GPA 3.5 from an engineering program, but a very average, 590 on the GMAT. I had started to study again and focus more on the basics. But I recieved a packet of info from Darden. I had resigned myself to apply for the 2012 program to raise my GMAt score, but I was wondering if I should role the dice and apply to Darden. It would be the only school I will apply to this time, because all of the other schools that I want to go to, have much higher AVG GMAT scores. Suggestions?

Regards,

Shawn

What if someone at the age of 25years with no relevant work ex wants to make it into the ivy league. He is an Artist and has done theater shows(Stage/Street acting) from past 4 years. MBA with this profile looks impossible and stupid. So he started preparing for GMAT and got 720+ in mocks, he wants to take GMAT but still thinking to pay around 15k INR for the exam is it worth to take a shot?

He also dosent have good grades in graduation(44% out of 100) and has done it through distance learning, moreover he belongs to a below middle class family where people need good and extra ordinary reasons to study . Reason for MBA- Has learned to work hard in those 4 years and wants to get a good job and settle down.Now what should he do? Has anyone converted any top US bschool with this kind of background??

10th= 50%
12th= 66%
Graduation= 44% Bachelor in commerce Pass( Two reasons for doing grad. through distance learning one poor score so unable to make a cut in good government colleges, had no money to study in Private universities).

From school days he acted on number of street shows,so even after graduation he persuaded the same profession.But day by day its becoming difficult to survive as the per month income is too low.

Any suggestion/guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks
