Hello Harshita1993

While the silhouette of your profile looks good in terms of past acads, expected GMAT and the academic brand on the CV, to be successful at your list of schools you will need to stand out in your professional work experience and extracurricular activities too.
Unlike academic scores, strength in work ex/extracurricular is not easy to measure through a few bullet points.
Depth of your work ex, career progress, key accomplishments, impact on the business of your organization/clients it hat will set you apart from the tough competition that you will face.
Good part is that you have started early- spend the next few months brainstorming and fleshing out these stories.

Hello Harshita1993


Nobody can evaluate your profile, when you don't know your GMAT score, at least in ballpark from mock scores.

What you aim doesn't count much :) I am sure that is obvious.

Anyway, 730 on GMAT will be enough to place you in Ivy schools, since that is their average score.

John Hopkins is not an Ivy, still a good school, NYU and Stanford are top, but they are not Ivy.


Being a female is going to be your advantage from diversification point of view.

Your working experience is relevant, and GPA with addition to being top of the class is certainly commendable. :clap:

Extra curricular activities in mental health and human trafficking are particularly interesting and that is going to be your strength in application, that will stand out, and can serve as "bait" for admission committee, to grant you an interview.


All in all, if you do well on GMAT (around 730) you really have good chance at all schools above mentioned.


Good Luck with application and consulting career ! :cool:

The Ivy's are just 8 in number:

1/ Brown university
2/ Yale
3/ Harvard
4/ Dartmouth
5/ Princeton
6/ Cornell
7/ University of Pennsylvania
8/ Columbia

Hi expert,
May I know:
Why people tend to study in Ivy-league?
What's the special thing the Ivy authority offer?
What's is the chance to get a good scholarship in Ivy? Is it too much easy to get scholarship in Ivy?

Thanks__

Hello Harshita1993,

Thanks for your query.

On the face it, you seem to have a good profile, though, you have not shared any details pertaining to your achievements at work.

A GMAT score of 750+ looks promising.

Having said the above, the essays will be crucial and you will need to pay extra attention towards portraying your candidature in a way that sets it apart from the rest. The essays will indeed have a huge role to play in determining your chances. Thus, we strongly recommend that you get done with your GMAT as early as possible and spend the remaining time focusing on your applications.

All the best!
