Hello Friends:
Please allow me to introduce myself. I love GMAT.

Writing the GMAT turned out to be a defining moment in my life. I wouldn't be where I am if it weren't for this community.

The community helped me go from 650 to 710 and then on to 750.

My GMAT score got me a part time job as a quantitative aptitude instructor in a GMAT coaching institute. Few months into the job, I fell in love with teaching and training. I moved to Bangalore to pursue a full time career as a teacher/trainer. A year back, I quit that job and started my own training and development company in partnership with three others. In the last four years, I have interacted with over 30,000 students and those interactions helped me define my mission.

MISSION

Transform the way people learn

GUIDING BELIEF

No student must feel that he or she is not capable of learning what he or she wants

PURPOSE OF THIS THREAD

The purpose of this thread is to set, track, and achieve milestones along my application journey. I am applying for the first round of the Fall 2016 intake.

So join me in this journey to boldly go where I have never gone before.

Oh, and beer is on the house!

What I learned so far from the admission consultants on the GMAT Club:

1. I have a killer GMAT score and a non-typical profile that can be leveraged to create a strong application.

2. I am in a position to present myself as a strong candidate for any business school within the top 15 ranks.

3. There are three things that matter in a strong application: GOALS... GOALS... GOALS...

Action for today: Use the goal setting process I found on youtube to get clear on my post MBA goals

I'll post my learning later on. Have a nice day.

Hello there :)

I used a guided meditation audio on goal setting and the results were marvelous. I have a call with an admission consultant in the evening and I am preparing for the same.
Result:
1. Identified the industry I want to work in and they are as follows:
a) Instructional Design
b) Ed Tech
c) Human Performance Technology

2. Identified the function I'd perform in the organization and the reason why:
a) Short Term - Product Development Manager
b) Mid Term - Product Development Head
c) Long Term - CEO

3. Identified the country where I want to work and the reasons for the same
a) US because:
1. Most of the companies that I want to work in are headquartered in the US
2. Trends in the industry emerge in the US sooner than it does else where
3. Education specific venture capitalists are more accessible in the US
4. Education is a viable career option in the US and thus, I can acquire young people who can be mentored to assume leadership positions and carry on my work

4. Identified my strengths and they are as follows:
1. Creative and Innovative
2. Communicative
3. Patient and Persistent
4. Leadership

(Also wrote examples from my life to prove those claims and thought of people who will vouch for and corroborate the same.)

5. Achieved clarity on how my past experience in the education sector set me up to assume the role I chartered for my future.

All in all.. It was a real kick! 8-)

Awesome brand new day full of excitement :D

UPDATES:
I spoke to an international consultant yesterday. Here's the learning:
1. The lady I spoke to was pleasant
2. She was speaking more about her company rather than showing interest in my background or profile
3. The services are too expensive for me

As a result of that, I searched for admission consultants operating in India. I sent my resume to a couple and now I await their call.

Oh, and I spoke to a friend who is studying in UCLA who cautioned me against using an admission consultant.
I also spoke to my cousin who is studying the US. He told me to use a consultant for the paper work but do the college selection on your own.

UPDATES: MBA Admission Consultants

Experts' Global Training Service

Spoke to Mr. Mayank, founder of Experts Global consultancy. The call was professional, pleasant, and informative. Their processes makes sense to me and they have been very responsive so far. I have also discovered that a few members of the GMAT club have used their service and are pleased with it. I look forward to schedule a call to speak to the mentor I'd be working with if I choose to appoint them as my consultant. They have also provided two reference. I am establishing contact with them to learn more about end user experience.
