Are there any Average Joe Indian Applicants here?
Feeling flustered with being the only guy with a GRE score in this cruel 770 GMAT zone

Anyone applying to schools in the range 20-50?
No?


My profile outside my GMAT is pretty average. I'm applying for the first time this year, if I reapply next year, I might aim for some 20-50 progs

Where you intend to go to does NOT make a difference.

The feasibility and clarity of your Goals do.

Man the schools in the 20-50 range would dig that 770!
I too am applying for the first time in R2 this month.
My first application. Weird (bitter sweet) experience.

Excited to see what's in store for me this year :cool:

With all due regards for whatever research you have done, and all your modesty, MBA apps are the last place to be humble.

Please share your profile, and details...
It may help many future applicants to discuss what (apart from a 770) brought Fin Aid, and Admits...

Yes, but wouldn't returning to India help avoid any potential visa issues? That would address the feasibility issue, in a sense, no? For example, aiming for a MBB role in the US vs in India wouldn't the latter seem more plausible?

Apologies if this is a bad/obvious question - I'm in the process of familiarizing myself with the visa process

I understand, I wouldn't state I was average on an application.

A quick overview of my profile (happy to share more):
Education: Engineering in NUS (Singapore) w 2.88 GPA
Work Experience: 2.5 years in consulting, 1.5 in investment management (but operations role there)
Extracurriculars: nothing much really, but started a small investment club with friends and some start-up consulting
MBA goal: transition to MBB focusing on fintech

How many here got an invite from Stanford? I just saw one. This year saw unbelievably low reports from people or could be less number of invites.


So very true,
Stanford Admissions this year have been almost unpredictable, and extremely tough.
An Indian Female Engineer got a ding at Stanford, but a Full Tuition (PLUS living expenses) from Wharton.

The School admissions process is completely separated from the Visa process. As long as the work Visa is a valid, legit process, a goal is looked at in the light of other things.

Feel free to connect for details.

A seemingly important one.
For the people who claim to be reapplying,
Did you get rejected the first time with those scores and profile?
[FLUSHED FACE][DIZZY FACE][SEE-NO-EVIL MONKEY]
770 n decent profiles and still rejection?


Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using GMAT Club Forum mobile app


770 and a decent profile means nothing unless post MBA goal are sound and well researched. Lets assume a marketing analyst with 3 years of ex from an Ecom applies to a school with a 750 claiming a post MBA short term goal to be a consultant at the big four. Now though he is an analyst working for the marketing department, his role would mainly be collecting and identifying trends in data. He is not interpreting the data nor creating strategies around them. Now if his UG is not a Management course he would be looking into strategies for the first time thus expecting to grow into a consultant right after an MBA in not logical


Jedimaster is so right, s/he may actually be an Ad Com member prowling the GmatClub space.. :grin: :grin: :grin:
