GRE = 325
GPA = 2.5
UG = BBA
Work ex = 4.5 years
10th = 92.5% (ICSE India)
12th = 70% (ICSE India)
Course of choice: MBA

Kindly advice on schools that I can realistically target. I am not sure if I would/would not make it to T-20. Thanks!

Radhika46 hi,
My name is Shimri Winters from ARINGO MBA Admissions Consulting
Thanks for sending us your profile. unfortunately, we are missing so much information that it is hard to estimate your chances. specifically, I would like to know:

Work experience - where, what, for how long, how many promotions, leadership experiences, international exposure, client interaction, etc
Academics - Where did you study? what did you specialize in? Your GPA sounds low. what's your place in class? Were you involved in student-led activities? other info?
Extra Curricular activities- hoobies? volunteering?
Other - Family, origin, gender, special interests, special story, etc.


Once you send us all this info we can do a profile analysis. feel free to share it here or send it to me all over email at shimriw@ARINGO.com
GOOD LUCK!

­Requesting profile evaluation

29F, dual citizen (SE Asia + Canada) residing in Canada

GMAT 710 (Q46, V41, IR8, AWA6)
-I was getting 740-770 in mocks but I have severe test anxiety; debating retake but would need to study new materials for focus?

GPA 3.0 (73%), accounting major from a T10 university in Canada

7 YOE in luxury residential real estate on a top 1% performing team, now managing new home sales division

Extracurriculars: I just started getting involved with organizing a running event in fall for a large charity, also managing several teams as director of the event. Growing interest in fitness and running, having ran several events ranging from 5K to half marathon.
Otherwise, I was extremely active in ECs back in uni to the point of winning an award for student leadership. Held executive positions in 3 clubs ranging from political science to student mentorship.

Target schools (draft to be narrowed down):
UofT Rotman & Western Ivey for Canada
Columbia, NYU, Yale, Dartmouth, Cornell for USA
INSEAD, LBS, Oxford, Cambridge for Europe

Ultimate goal: change careers into tech PM, proven passion in tech since childhood (computer building/tinkering, programmed a tool with 1k+ daily users, UG exchange semester studying comp sci)

Hi whomstmd,

Thanks for sharing your details and MBA aspirations. I am Priyanka, Client Manager at ARINGO.

About your profile: 
  • Academics: Your GPA seems fine and 710 is a good score for most MBA programs.
  • Work experience: 7 years of experience, especially on a top-performing team, is impressive. Leading a new division demonstrates strong leadership potential.
  • Extracurricular activities: Getting involved in organizing a charity event showcases your leadership, organization, and teamwork skills.
  • Proven passion for Tech: Your childhood interest in tech, building a tool with daily users, and studying computer science all demonstrate a strong foundation for a career shift into tech PM.
  • Dual Citizenship (Canada + Southeast Asia): This adds diversity to your application.
Areas for Improvement:
  • GMAT retake (Optional): If you're confident you can improve your score by studying new materials for focus, a retake could be beneficial, especially for reaching schools like Columbia, NYU, and Yale. However, a 710 is a fine score too.
  • GPA: We would like to know your class percentile and college details.
  • Professional Experience: We would like to know more about your promotions, the impact of your work, etc. 
Recommendations:
  • Target Schools:
    1. Canada: UofT Rotman & Western Ivey are good choices.
    2. USA: Out of Columbia, NYU, Yale, Dartmouth, Cornell, select 2-3 schools that best fit your profile and career goals. Consider schools with strong alumni networks in the tech industry or known for their tech PM programs.
    3. Europe: Consider narrowing down to 1-2 schools in Europe.
Focus on your career goals: In your application essays, clearly articulate your passion for tech and how your MBA will help you transition into a tech PM role. Highlight relevant skills and experiences from your current role that would be valuable for a PM position.

Highlight your leadership skills: Quantify the impact of your past and current leadership roles in your extracurricular activities.

Overall, your profile is strong for an MBA application. If you can share the above details along with your CV with me at priyankak@ARINGO.com, I would love to connect you with our CEO and work on some amazing applications. 

All the best :)­
