Hi

Background & Nationality: Indian Female, Commerce graduate.

Undergraduate: 3GPA Bachelors in Commerce, from University of Delhi

GMAT: 710 V40Q47

Work Experience & Leadership:
2years of audit experience with one of the big fours. Will complete 3 years before beginning the session.

Community & Others:
Volunteered with an NGO for 5 months. Was at a leading post.
Interned with the HR Department of an MNC for a month
Worked with the French Trade Commission at the French Embassy in India
Volunteered for a month teaching underprivileged youth.
Served as the General Secretary (session 2014-15), Joint Secretary (session 2013-14) in College. My role required me to work with a team of 24 other members thereby leading them in organizing various events.

Post MBA Goals: Want to expand my family business, maybe get into a major Finance role.

What are my chances for Stern? Should I retake the GMAT? Should I wait another year before applying? What can I do in that one year to enhance my chances?

Thank you for all your help

Background and nationality: White, UK, Male, 25 (26 at matriculation)
Undergrad Information: 3.7 GPA equivalent in Political Science at top London University (think LSE or UCL)
GMAT: 720 (Q: 47, V: 42, IR: 7, AWA: 6)
Work experience and leadership: Big Four M&A Tax (first promotion after qualifying as CA - not possible to be promoted sooner). Hold a leadership role at work amongst junior staff. Rated highly in performance reviews and have been involved with a number of high-profile client events and internal projects relating to the implications of politics (especially recent UK politics) on our services/work.
Community and others: Have an entrepreneurial background - co-founded a start-up at university and was successful as an investor whilst there. Was also a well-regarded player of a particular skill-based game that resulted in prizes and coached others in this game. Today, I continue appraising investments with my brother and also help out to manage the family business. Community-wise: more politically active than a charity person.
Post MBA goals: Investment banking in New York
Anything else? Applying round 2. Expect to produce strong essays and to focus on finance as groundwork towards a long-term goal as a FTSE100 CFO

GMAT: 710 Great GPA and a GMAT that keeps you in contention
Work experience and leadership: 2 years of non-profit experience at small environmental organizations, PhD in environmental science from a top 5 school, currently working as a research scientist The PhD always makes things a bit tricky- really explain why the MBA makes sense for you
Community and others: ceramic artist, marathoner and triathlete
Post MBA goals: Renewable energy industry
Anything else? I have strong quantitative skills (statistical programming and big data analysis) and a deep interest in environmental issues. I have no business experience or coursework.I would do some talking to people with MBAs working in renewable energy so that it is clear to Stern that you understand the path you seek. Also do a deep dive into talking to Stern students so adcom knows this is a fully baked plan for you. For some tips on Stern's essays,

Beyond this, it may help to talk to a counseling firm to best position you given the PhD as you need to show you understand why the business degree fits- and for that reach out here for a free consult: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/

The GMAT being a tad under the bar- especially coming from India- I'd look for the work experience and the leadership to be OVER the bar in some way. Not sure it is for the 3 yrs of work- but the key here is what have you done in those 3 years? Have you progressed faster than those in similar circumstances? Has your leadership in community been more than one would typically expect to see in MBA applicants? These are the honest questions you should ask yourself- and that will give you an idea if you have enough to get to NYU. Also- being a bit more specific about what kind of venture and what kind of work you have done may also help you in your application- I understand if you don't want to state here- but you will really need to make sure you have a compelling story to overcome the GMAT deficit. Right now from what I see here- I just don't see it- but it could well be that you do have these things with work success and if so- be sure to highlight these in your essays!
