Dear Linda,
Hi! I am a prospective applicant for Fall 2005. I am an Asian (Citizen of India) living in US since past 4 years. I am given to understand that most of the applicants compete within their ethnic / demographic backgrounds. To maintain the diversity in each class MBA schools try to choose the best out of each category of applicants.

Recently I have got approved for Immigration to Canada. I want to know whether indicating, on my application, that I am permanent resident of Canada will add to my advantage or work against me.

I understand that the number of applicants from India and China are far more than any other Asian country. I wonder by differentiating myself from Asian community of applicants on the basis of my permanent residence shall bring any significant advantage in seeking admission.

Looking forward for a response.

Thanks and regards,

Mohit

I don't see your immigration/visa status making a significant difference because itdoesn't change the essence of who you are. It is a legal designation. It means you won't have to get a work permit in Canada, which might help you slightly at Canadian schools. But it isn't going to change the fact that you are coming from a crowded field: Indians applying to business school.

For suggestions on how to distinguish yourself, please see "MBA Admissions: Advice for Indian Applicants."

Good luck!
