deepakv7, Hi Deepak, thanks for sharing your information. 1) Your age and the length of your experience is fine. Your GRE score isn’t really competitive for the schools you’ve mentioned. You want to be hitting a 332 or somewhere in that range, atleast for the schools that you’ve mentioned.

[quote=deepakv7, [/quote] Yale, Kellogg are good choices. There are many others that you could consider as well. However, I feel your long term goals should actually be your short and long term goals. The switch to strategy consulting doesn’t make sense to me. Just in case you cannot improve your GRE score, consider the Kellogg and Cornell 1 year MBA programs, or the Columbia Jan intake. Hope this helps!

apramay, I think your choice of schools should be linked to your post MBA goals and not just based on your profile. You seem to be on the younger side and perhaps could wait if need be to pursue an MBA. That said, do apply this year. USC Marshall is a great school and would suit your profile. You may find getting admission to Tepper or UNC challenging but that shouldn’t deter you from applying. GeorgiaTech would be a good safe option. It would help if I knew your goals or your budget and how you plan to fund your MBA. Hope this helps!

Hi Nikhil, I’m ready for the next two.

anusharajjj123, You’ve done a lot to build your profile! And you have shown diverse interests as well. While some brands on your CV would help, I think you’ve got a good shot at deferred MBA programs. Schools look for academic excellence, diverse interests and leadership potential. The two things that aren’t coming out from your brief write-up are your leadership potential and the impact that you’ve had on the organizations you’ve been a part of. Bring that out in your apps. And in case deferred admissions don’t work out for you, don’t worry, with a little bit of profile building and adding some brands to your resume, you would be a good candidate for these schools with 2-3 years experience. Hope this helps!

Tanmay1357, Tanmay, on the face of it, you should target schools that have an older profile of people. Perhaps if you have a restriction on your budget, target schools where you may have a better chance of getting a scholarship rather than taking a really huge loan OR consider pursuing a 1 year MBA in the UK vs a 2 year MBA in the US. Almost all schools provide employment assistance through their career management centers. In the UK, schools such as Warwick, Cranfield could be some you could consider. In the US, you may look at USC Marshall’s IBEAR program (1 year MBA). Hope this helps!
