Advice Needed Urgently/ Deadline apporaching  [#permalink]

Hello all,

I am a final year student in one of the reputed colleges in India(NIT Kurukshetra,India) with an aggregate GPA of 8.201/10(Branch: Electronics and Communication; Absolute Marking). My GMAT score is 690. I am secretary of a Students' Club, state level basketball player( runner up at ALL INDIA INTER NIT Basketball tournament too;not sure if that qualifies as nationals according to international standards), part of the university dance crew(won at many cultural fests pan India) and have a placement offer from Goldman Sachs as an analyst.

I was looking forward to applying at HBS. However, my test day was pretty disappointing. I plan onto appearing for the examination again in June and am pretty confident that I will be able to score within the range of 730-760. However the deadline to apply for the 2+2 program will have expired by then.

Is my profile along with the current GMAT score good enough for Yale Silver Scholars program, or should I leave the entire thing and give the GMAT again and apply after another 2 years or so?

I want to work with Goldman Sachs for atleast 2 years before moving forward with my MBA.

Hi
In my opinion, it would be a better idea to work for 2 years, get some quality experience and then apply for admission to MBA college. Although I don't know much about the Yale silver scholars program, I think 690 is a good score, but if you can score a 730 or 740 in the Gmat, it will definitely improve your chances more. Also, you do have good extra-curricular activities. Continue doing these, even if you join Goldman Sachs.

Hello,

I would definitely recommend working first, it is exactly what I have done and I couldn't be happier. I have changed my interests a lot and I strongly believe everyone would, including you.
MBA is an important step in your life, not only because of the investment but also because of the time it takes.

You look like you have a good profile and can reach high!

Good luck on everything you undertake ;)

Your current profile although good will still probably keep you out of range for the Yale Silver Scholars Program. Your GMAT isn't currently strong enough to allow you to breakthrough here. Also, GS is a great company so a few years of work experience plus a stronger GMAT will allow you to apply to FT programs more confidently in the future
