Thank you Narenn for the initiative, here's a snapshot of my profile:

1. I'm 30 years old, male, Indian.
2. I've secured 630 in GMAT, planing to retake it in the next few months.
3. I graduated from a private engineering college in 2011, (CGPA- 7.32). Studied Electronics & Communication Engineering.
4. Post MBA I'd like to join a development consulting firms.
5. I'm targeting mostly Indian Business Schools programs (full time one year MBA).
6. Professional Experience- Worked as a software developer for two years, then joined a social sector fellowship program as an educator. After completing the two years fellowship, I joined a not-for-profit firm. It has been three years since then.

I wish all the 2020-intake MBA applicants a great time ahead ~ "Future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams".

Great opening! Thanks for posting your profiles guys. Look forward to see more such amazing profiles.

My only suggestion would be to keep the intro short. Try to follow the template shown in the first post.

That's a great initiative for all 2020 applicants Narenn. Let me be the first (I guess not) one to share some of my details :)

Hello Dear members of the GMATClub / Influencers/ Leaders/ Aspiring Entrepreneurs/ Many more management related nouns (with or without adjectives/preposition phrases),
My name is Aalekh and I am from India. I am a 25 year old male.

Academics:
  • GMAT - Yet to write
  • CGPA's(Out of 10) 6.64
  • Enrolled myself in International School of Entrepreneurial Leadership (iSOEL) : Duration 6 months. 3 cohorts of 21 days.

Work Experience :
  • 3 years as a Product and Project Manager in IT firms that deal in fantasy sports solutions (think Dream 11, DraftKings, FanDuel) and mobile application developments. Have worked in 3 companies to date.
  • 3 years in my startup that I co-founded when I was 19. This was during graduation so it won't count in total work ex.

Reasons for pursuing MBA I want to switch into the consumer products industry with a general management perspective. Though I initially started out as a project manager, I later realized that I have some inclination towards building great products. I am the kind of person who would't want to keep any stone unturned until an amazing product with an amazing brand appearance is out in the market. I also have long term plans in the F&B sector in India, which is yet to be explored. I would like to share more details on this later on.

Schools that I am targeting - Darden (Why? Case Studies!), Ross(Why? MAP. Go Blue!), and ISB(Why? Feels close to home) in R1. I have other reasons as well. I am still figuring out my other schools, but I have written McCombs, Marshall, Fuqua, and Tepper as my other choices. I'll be writing my GMAT very soon.

Anything else? - I am active President and Manager of Royal Vikings Football Club (R.V.F.C) registered in District Football Association, Indore, Madhya Pradesh.

Life is unpredictable and I have learned from a legend on GMATClub that "The best test taker or in general the best in any field is the one who embraces the uncertainty".
Let's see where we all end up, doing great things and making this world a better place. All the best! [Edited Post]
