Dear nice-folk of gmatclub, Here are my stats, would really appreciate an evaluation:

Age: 26
Nationality: Indian
GMAT: 750 (Q50, V42)
Undergrad: Non-IIT, Top 25 engineering school
Undergraduate GPA: 3.6
Current work ex: 48 months - Consulting (19 months), Pharma (29 months)

I worked in a leading multinational pharma consulting firm as an associate for 19 months. International work ex was limited to working with American clients and colleagues - no travel. President of the toastmasters club and launched training programs for new hires. Not much to write about work, I'd left before getting promoted. Received an award for gamifying the toastmasters program
I then moved to one of the largest multinational pharmacos in a commercial excellence role (SFE). Managed multiple projects across functions: sales force rationalization, strategy roadmaps, capability building roadmaps, gamification, restructuring businesses, implementing innovative business models, go to market implementation - many of these have had business impact in $MM or equivalent. Have been awarded 3 times in the last 2 years for 3 different projects. Youngest member of team, colleagues are MBAs and received a fast track promotion in 2y against firm average of 3y.

Extra Curriculars:
President of Toastmasters club
Watch a lot of movies (>300 last year alone)
Travelling - have traveled to ~10 countries, and to multiple altitude regions of the Himalayas in the last 3 years
One helluva storyteller :)

Short term goal: Top tier consulting firm

Hey Karthik thanks for sharing your profile. I really like your background, a bit more unique than the avg indian applicant so it will be your responsibility to make sure the Ad Comm recognizes this and your achievements are properly highlighted.

Your stats are strong and will be a fit for Kellogg, now its up to you to translate all of this into an admit. Your story at this point will be super critical in your ability to create a successful application

Thanks so much for your response! I'm targeting applying in R2, do you think that I may be disadvantaged by not targeting R1?

I always prefer pushing for R1, there are more spots available and it gives you more flexibility when setting your R2 strategy, especially if you get dinged by your R1 schools. Also, do you don't have to apply to all of your schools R1 so look at your school deadlines and figure out the strategy that works for you
