Given your background, you could put more efforts on future planning like which industry you would like to work in (e.g. finance, banking, VC/PE, marketing, consulting, engineering, NGO, or your own start-ups?), which region is suitable for you or attracts you (North America, Asia Pacific, Greater China or back to India?), and you could also think about your advantages and disadvantages, what kind of life you wanna live in 5 years.

MBA is not just about study :)

Hi,

Candidates aren't satisfied till they achieve 800 score!!

You have pretty decent scores to apply in top b-schools globally. Rather than focusing on GMAT preparations, I would suggest you to concentrate on application essays and interviews which are integral elements in b-school selection. You need to showcase some good stories on team work, leadership, achievements in or outside work place and other aptitudes. You must stay focus on short/long term goals and post-MBA career. Prepare yourself to answer that how MBA from ABC school will help you to achieve your goals.

You may try your chance sin b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/bschool-selector

Feel free to post any other concern you might have or PM your details to have a detail discussion on your profile and selection of b-schools.

Cheers!!
Neha

Hi,

What are your big dreams? You should focus on long term goals and then apply to b-schools. This is very common question which most of the b-school adcoms seek for. Rather than writing GMAT again, I would suggest to strengthen your profile by heading a team and awards/achievements at work place. You may gauge your chances in business schools on http://www.apphelp.co.in/b-school-selector.php

Let me know in case of further queries. You may PM your details for school selection and discussion in length.

Regards
Erina
