Agreed.
Too many engineers score high on the gmat so instead of swallowing your GMAT score the adcoms will go for someone with a similar profile and a high gmat score(considering you have not done something that can be classified as an extra ordinary). Trust me the competition is intense and Indian male engineer is the most competitive pool to be in.

Yes this is a harsh truth. But I would not go so far and say nothing will compensate for GMAT. Things are a bit different across schools. Top 3/M7/T15/T30 or 50.

Good thing about Vanderbilt is they even accept GRE and EA. So that is a great workaround for the GMAT score. The averages for the other two scores are not so brutal as GMAT and you may getaway with a good profile

Especially the EA

Just craft your narrative in a way that's unique to you.


Dude, just apply. You're not only a GMAT score, or the IT profession, or your nationality. While you might face some competition, I bet something (just need one thing) about your WE or extracurriculars stands out. If not, work on the art of storytelling. Find insightful lessons from mundane experiences and present them in a way that no other similar candidate from your demographic will be able to replicate. Use examples of critical thinking, self-accountability/humbleness, and innovative thinking. Also, don't just apply based on rankings. Business School is a business at the end of the day. They are looking at how EMPLOYABLE you'll be once you graduate based on your background, previous WE, and post-MBA goals. That's why test scores are just one factor in admissions. Hope this helps, and good luck!
