Hi
Here is my profile in brief
male, indian engineer from NIT with a CGPA of 7.4/10, level 2 CFA cleared, GMAT SCORE OF 720, Working in an MNC for past 5.5 years in finance industry, have been mentoring batches in my company, also running a business on my own for past 3 years in hospitality industry have grown it to a turnover of more than a million INR, and employ close to 25 people. Have ventured into other businesses also in the same industry recently. A fitness freak, like travelling and have traveled quite a lot.

I plan to be in the consulting or finance industry(leaning towards consulting) in future.
my target colleges are: Chicago Booth, ISB, NUS, INSEAD, NYU Stern

I would really appreciate any feedback on the profile. would also appreciate if you can comment on the choice of schools or if should add any other
Thanks again


Hi Gautam,

I quite like your profile- specifically the mix of entrepreneurship and a regular job.

I think your b-school choice is fine- Booth and Stern are aspirational schools , so I would suggest you apply to only one among them and replace the other with a safer choice such as UNC Kenan Flagler, which is also a finance/consulting school.

INSEAD places huge emphasis on international experience, so if you lack in that department, consider applying to another program.

Eventually your career goals will need more clarity. You will need to figure out whether it will be finance or consulting.

Whenever you ask a question make sure to show that you have done your homework before. Asking such general questions will not help you.

Agree with that comment- being a consultant myself. You need to find your "fit" with the consultant you are working with. Talk to them and take an informed decision.

Hey everyone, I need a little help here. I'm taking my GMAT next week and i'm still dwindling with my thoughts on the colleges I need to apply.

I don't want to go all out and apply to all of the top ones because just the applications are a pretty serious dent on the pocket. So it would be great if i could gather your thoughts here.

Based on the GMAT Prep mocks and Kaplan tests i've given I'm expecting ~720 which (+/- 20). [Got a 740 in GMAT Prep]. I am a Chartered accountant having been in the auto industry with Cummins for just above 36 months now. Strong academics (~88% in 10th & 12th | secured an AIR 26 in CA finals)/ not that much too boast on the extra-curricular's except a few institute level debates but I do take pride on my analytical skills.
Basically i'm looking for a sector change post MBA from finance & want to divulge into the world of consulting post an MBA. (the likes of BCG, McK, Bain etc.)

Having all this in mind here's my list of what what i think i can apply. SUGGESTIONS PLZ ::

1. ISB ; 2. Northwestern Univ: Kellog ; 3. Yale ; 4. NYU Stern ; 5. Duke : Fuqua ; 6. Oxford : Said (????) 7. HEC Paris

Chicago Booth , Haas, MIT Sloan
follow but not sure if i'm getting too optimistic here ???

Hi All

I am planning for a MBA somewhere in 2017. Considering my age and current salary I am wondering if it is worth going for an MBA after all.

A brief bio about me:

1. Male, currently 35 years old and a Canadian Immigrant at present.
2. BE from Bangalore with terrible grades, MSc from UK with average grades.
3. About 9 years of IT experience at present will be about 11 years when I plan to apply.
4. Developer and Team lead experience in Wipro, IBM, Accenture and HCL (in India). Also worked for IBM Canada (onsite) and currently working for a Canadian company.
5. By the time I apply it will be almost 5 years of international experience and 6 year experience in India.

I am planning for the following (in descending importance):

1. Wharton
2. Chicago Booth
3. Stanford GSB

Now the question is on ROI. Though I will be able to take a student loan in Canada to finance the major part of my expenses, this is how they stack up:

$200k MBA expense + $200k (loss of income for these 2 years considering that I earn around $100k/year) = $400k and even if I get the almost highest non-immigrant base salary of $130k it will be almost 3+ years post MBA before I actually start earning.

So I have the following questions:

1. Is it worth taking the plunge at this age (I am enthusiastic though not convinced)?
2. Am I a fit for these B Schools (considering my experience and an average 680-700 ish GMAT score)?

Thanks in Advance


Hi Pinaki,

I am 41, my score is 780 and I suggest that you take a look at my following posts:

Kellogg, Stern, Booth, Haas and MIT are going to be tough with a score of 720. Your 10th/12th academics don't matter in the US/ European programs. And if you have not mentioned your Undergrad results, I will assume that you did it by correspondence, which a lot of the CAs do. I don't think that will help much either.

Suggest that you make a realistic decision on your choice of b-schools once you have your GMAT score

You have a nice profile Pritha! Although your experience is on the lower side, I think you are doing good with the startup and the extra curricular activities, which gives you a chance to show leadership outside work.

You could apply to programs from top 15-30 - Bloomberg ranking (http://www.bloomberg.com/features/2015- ... s-schools/), based upon the programs you like and identify with.

Reach out if you'd like to discuss further.

How will you rate my profile for ISB?
Which Schools abroad I should target?


Hi Cadaver,

(feels devilish to say that :twisted: )

Yes, you do have a good profile for ISB- submit a great application which involves: demonstrating career growth, leadership, and goals clarity.
You can also apply to other b-schools- I can suggest a few names but would need to know your career goals and preferences for b-school- geography/ program focus/ any other.

Do feel free to share your resume with me at contact@mbadecoder.com

Hi Aveek,

Very attractive profile you have. As you may have already found out, GMAT score is not the only criterion to get an admission to a good school. However you will get the details of GMAT range and median score in FT website.

How are you placed on financing your MBA studies? In addition to the colleges you mentioned, you may consider German MBA colleges as your destination. Coming from a hardcore mechanical and chemical engineering background, your decision to come here could be a very prudent one, as this country is the hub of these fields of engineering. I have very similar experience as yours (Jadavpur University, mechanical engineering industry, Oil and gas sector in middle-east), and I have already received an internship offer (within 4 months of joining) with an indication of conversion to a fixed position. My job is in operations. Feel free to send me a msg if you would like to discuss in details about the German option; I would be happy to discuss [you are my college-junior after all :) ]. You may also take a look at my post below about the college I am studying in:

Hello everyone.

Applying for FT MBA 2016 intake as well. Here's my profile -

Gmat : 640 2 years ago, 710 (49, 35) recently, in December 2015. Slightly disappointed with this score as I was aiming for 730+, was averaging ~40 on my verbal section during prep tests.
Work ex : 3+ years upon matriculation. Worked in business developement at a local organization which exports technical and educational equipment globally. Couple of promotions, territory manager currently. Along with that launched an entrepreneurial venture last year as well in a nascent field. Was pretty successful, got substantial funding and several large MNC partners.
Undergrad : BBA at an average college. Horrible grades (49%).

Aim : MBA in strategy. Would probably enter entrepreneurship again in the future, want to work for a major management consultancy in the short term.

Schools applied to :
Boston University - Interview done
UNC - Haven't heard back
Mcdonough - Interview done
Simon - Haven't heard back
Olin - Haven't heard back
Katz - Rejected.

Also considering some european schools, primarily UK ones (Cranfield and Manchester). Want to apply to the German and Dutch ones as well.

I did the stupid thing and did not waive my right to view recommendations for any application. I wasn't aware that it could impact my profile negatively. Though I'm aware that I've received some stellar LORs.

Also, I'm 23. I am not sure if this will help my profile or be a deterrent. One of my counsellors did say that I should probably wait a year or two before applying.

Any advice on which schools should I consider? I wanted to apply to some more ambitious ones (like Kellogg, LBS et al) but I feel it's just money down the drain.
