Hi all,

I had applied to two schools this year, Harvard and Ross. Got rejected by former and admitted by the latter. I had researched the top 15 schools over a year and spoke to current students, attended school webinars and went through previous years' threads on GMAT Club.

Because of my age, I did not apply to schools which accepted few older candidates (n my perception ). I finalised three schools (including Darden) but could not apply to one, for personal reasons.

I had scored 760 in GMAT in 2015. So GMAT was not a worry during the process. I took maternity leave and came to US. During this period, I cleared CFA level 1 and volunteered at two organisations for about four months. I spoke to several students and was amazed by the help extended by one of the Ross students. Some students didn't respond well and I rejected those schools.

I contemplated a lot on hiring a consultant and even got a free review of my profile from one. Finally , I decided to do everything by myself. My spouse reviewed my essays and pointed out any lack of clarity or use of jargon. The helpful Ross student I mentioned earlier, also reviewed my resume and essays. Ross application was simple and short.

I tried to bring out all the positive points of my work experience and covered them all in essays and resume. Resume showed impact of my work, in quantifiable terms. Finally I submitted the applications and got an interview call from Ross.

I was interviewed by an alumni who asked general questions. I could not attend the grippy exercise . Got admitted and am quite excited to go back to school.

Thanks to GMAT Club and all those who contribute here. Best wishes...
