Dear fellows,

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you) Best of luck in your exams and applications in 2018.

Guys, especially admissions experts, I need your insight into my profile and how can I improve it. Taking into account of the following credentials from which universities I can get a fully funded scholarship?

- 25 year-old male from Azerbaijan
- Bachelors in Industrial Engineering and Management (courses were heavily on economics and management rather than technical) from a Top 5 university in Azerbaijan.
- GPA 82/100
- GMAT 730
- IELTS 8.0
- WE: 3 months internship at Central Bank during undergrad, 5 months of international experience (Central Europe) as a trading and operations consultant at a brokerage firm, and its been 2 years that I've been working at Central Bank as a risk management specialist.
-extra curricular and leadership: I don't know whether it can be considered as an extra curricular-1 year of military service. During this period I've been promoted to unit commander position, I had a couple of soldiers in my unit. I thought it can be critical considering Azerbaijan is in harsh military situation. Also, I've conducted a project single-handedly which encompassed several departments at the Central Bank.(I think it can be counted as a leadership experience as well)
- No community service. But I have a reason, I didn't have a such a luxury and time to work for free because at the age of 19 I lost my father, so I had to take care of my family and my studies.
-My goal is to switch to management consultancy.

I'd appreciate any feedback on my profile.

Thanks:)

You have a great profile. When it comes to a scholarship you have many of the right aspects in your profile given you come from an underrepresented country with a strong profile. Just know the more competitive programs have a lot of top candidates so it’s more difficult to stand out there for scholarships.

Can’t make school reccs without knowing career goals. But i would look at schools between 10-20 to maximize your odds for a scholarship. These are hard to get for even the most qualified because it is simply hard to get into school let alone get a scholarship

Hi

Wishing you a superb year ahead!

I was wondering if you could help in assessing my profile for the top 20 schools.

I am a 28 Year Old Indian Male,
Graduation: Economics Honours (CGPA 6.7 / 65%) from a top tier college in India. The marking system is pretty stringent here.

School: CIE A levels, GPA 3.5

Work:
Started up an education company in 2012, we currently train over 600 students a year and I employ around 25 people with a revenue structure upwards of 1.5 crores (INR)

Worked as a fixed income trader for about 6 months in 2014. Traded short sterling futures and UK Bonds in LIFFE (the exchange). Resigned from here because my startup needed active involvement from my side at the time

Started up a HR recruitment company in 2013, generated decent revenue in the first year but shut it down.

Hobbies:

I played professional jazz piano, and have performed with International artists such as Manu Koch, Harvey Whirt, Prasanna and have also opened concerts for Victor Wooten and Herbie Hancock.
I've played basketball and table tennis representing my college
Headed the committee of our Annual Economic Conference hosted by my alma mater for 2 consecutive years.
Actively participated in social awareness drives.
Started a foundation which educates the girl child in remote inaccessible villages in Bengal (my Home State)
Was an active debater in school and college


Awards: Awarded the Erasmus Mundus scholarship in 2014. Didn't take it up since i decided against doing a masters in Economics in Europe.
Shortlisted for the commonwealth scholarship and invited for an interview (couldn't make it due to health)

I needed to find out the scope of getting admitted into the top 15. Also, will I be too old for the batch when I apply i 2018 (re: 2019 admit, will be 30 then)

Thanks in advance,

Best

Great profile Mehemmed,
I believe schools will look quite favorably at your candidature, with high chances for fin Aid as well.
The Key here will be:
1) Shape your career goals VERY VERY WELL
2) Also required is a STRONG story that connects you as its central theme throughout. I think that is quite doable given the details you wrote.
3) Personally however, I would suggest other than the 10-20 schools for you.
Please pm me for more details.

Hi,
1) GMAT?
2) Just confirming if your bachelors is 3 years (in which case you will need a 16th year of education for many schools)
3) Great GPA.
4) 30 is NOT too old for top 15
5) Goals are not clear.

For a detailed profile eval, please pm your resume
