Hi Rainbows,

Thank you for your note. It would be great if you could share more information. What is your gender? Why are you pursuing an MBA? What are your post-MBA goals?

Thanks,
Greg

Dear all,
Request you to review my profile

Gender: Female
GMAT (New format): 690 Q50 V34 AWA4 IR7
Work experience :3 years in Accenture (Technology) as a Software Engineer.
Extra curricular: Council member in School (Magazine editor). Played in the college Throw ball team.

Academics :
X 91% (2009)
XII 81 % (2011)
BE (Computers) from Mumbai University (2011-2015) 80%
Career goals: I want to widen my knowledge , breaking into a new industry. For a few years I would want to work in sales and marketing, gradually going on to lead branch level and region level within the organization. Here onwards, I would either continue with the growth or would have gained enough expertise to start something of my own. Not very clear between these two at the moment.

With your experience, could you please suggest the colleges within my reach?

Thanks

Thank you, Rainbows. You'll generally want to look at the U.S. top 25 to 50. The front of that range will be a reach, and even outside of that, no acceptance is easy.

The specificity surrounding your career goals, rationale for MBA, and rationale for each program will need to be significantly developed, as will the narrative of how who you are and what you've done to this point -- plus the MBA -- equals or leads to your very specific short- and long-term goals. What knowledge, skills, and experience do you already have that are relevant? What knowledge, skills, and experience are you missing and therefore need to acquire via the MBA? How will you acquire those at each MBA program? Which courses, clubs, extracurriculars? What about each program's culture, community, or career opportunities make it right for you? How exactly will you contribute? What unique perspective can you bring to a given class? You will need to be highly specific and have a compelling, coherent, and credible story. You can read more about these things here: https://www.avantiprep.com/blog/the-mos ... on-process

Within the aforementioned range, you should begin to research programs in context of your career interests (are they strong in that field?), where they're located, where they send their graduates, whether they're big or small, size / strength / dispersion of alumni network, and many other variables. Once you've whittled down the list, you can then think more strategically about how you want to develop your school strategy. That often means applying to a couple of reach programs, a couple of more aligned programs, and a couple of safer programs (though I hesitate to ever use the word "safe," because no matter what, you need to execute very well across the parameters outlined above). Your Quant score is strong, so if you think you can boost your Verbal while maintaining your Quant, that can bode well for your overall score and potentially open things up a little more for you. The Indian software engineer field is quite crowded (more so for males than females), so additional GMAT score points definitely help.

You should take a look at this GMAT Club study for added context: https://gmatclub.com/forum/mba-admissio ... 39142.html Indian applicants with a 680 or 690 GMAT score have only a 13% acceptance rate to the U.S. top 21 to 50. That rate jumps to 23% when you boost your score to a 700 or 710, and even further from there.

Please feel free to reach out if I can ever be of formal assistance with your School Selection process, applications, resume, essays, or anything else! https://www.avantiprep.com/free-consultation.html

Best Regards,
Greg

I didn't comment specifically on your extracurriculars, but there doesn't appear to be anything for you there post-college. That will be a weak spot in your candidacy. The field is extremely crowded, so finding areas of differentiation -- leadership, impact, engaged community citizenship, reflection of values outside of work, personal story, what makes you unique, etc. -- is important. (This takes a longer time to develop and wouldn't be feasible for this year's applications. But it's definitely something to build if you apply in a future year.)
