I see Indian tech applicants dominating the indian pool here (generalising on a small sample) but I was just curious to know, whether someone outside the tech space, say someone like me with an economics background from a super reputed college in India, will be considered along with the same tech Indian pool?

bb would you like to throw some light on this?

Welcome to the MBA forum. You said you are taking GMAT next Saturday whereas I already see a GMAT score added to your profile. Is it a mock test score?


Thank you so much!. The previously stated GMAT score was my Target and previously taken practice exam but almost 3 years ago. I took the exam last Saturday and scored a very horrific score of 490. I am on a mission of extensive prep to reach at least a score of 720 in one month.

Hi Murty,
Congrats on the score. I think you are one of the few applicants of my age. I am 34 . An entrepreneur for the last 10 years.

Where did you practice verbal from ? Any particular forums on GMAT that you followed?

Which other schools are you applying to ? Which admission expert have you finalised on?

Regards

Nationality / Age - Indian, 28, M

GMAT - 670 (V32/Q49/ IR3/ AWA5.5)

Undergraduate : Computer Engineering (2012)

Work Experience - Doing enterprise product management with my start-up which creates SaaS products (CRM, ERP) for small businesses. Have more than 150 clients. From to start to end - coding to customer support, doing almost everything.

Why MBA? - So far so good. Fulfilling experience. But I feel have plateaued out. Seeking scale. To learn how to achieve growth and scale by being surrounded by bright people.

Post-MBA goals - Enterprise product management with a bigger company (like Salesforce, KEAP, HubSpot etc)

Program Selection : *Confusion*
May I get some help with school selection?

On this score, I received a rejection from :

    Foster
    ASU
    Carlson
    Mendoza
    Georgia Tech
    Rotman

Tried to improve my score but couldn't.

I'm not sure, given my score, profile and post-MBA goals, where can I apply. Help?
