Hi,

It would be great if someone can help in evaluating my profile.
Have written the GMAT once in June 2018.
My GMAT score:740 (Q50 V40 AWA 4 IR3)


Academics:
Graduation in Civil Engineering. GPA of 7.96/10
10th : 92.4 %
12th: 81.2%

I am 25 years male from India.
I am working in State bank of India (Ranked 277 in Fortune 500, Ranked 55 in list of banks in terms of asset size) as Deputy Manager in area of Commercial lending, documentary credit and foreign exchange. I am currently handling credit exposure portfolio of approx Rs. 250 Crs (USD 38 Million) for the bank. Besides I also have exposure in the field of Rural developmental banking and have worked in Rural-Semi Urban areas in India particularly dealing in agricultural credit and developmental schemes.
I have 3.5 years working experience with SBI (my only employer) and in this period I have got one promotion and consistently been rated AAA(highest) in my annual appraisals.
I have worked on lending in various sectors like manufacturing (papers industry, textile industry, food processing industry etc) as well as trading sectors. Along with this I handle entire Foreign Exchange business of Category B branch (Highest level in standalone level) in FOREX.
I have also completed 6 certifications from NISM_SEBI in field of Currency derivatives, equity derivatives, interest derivatives, Investment adviser, Security markets as well as 5 different certifications from IIBF pertaining to commercial lending, AML_KYC, Documentary Credit, Foreign Exchange, SME etc.
I am currently undergoing Certification in commercial credit from Moody's Analytics which is slated to be completed by end of July 2018.
I Will be appearing CFA Level 1 in december 2018.

In graduation college I was treasurer of college technical body and was active member of college NGO (which dealt in providing free education to children belonging to poor community around college campus).

What are the chances for Round 1 this year considering finance will be my main concentraion?
Please advise.

Thanks,
Kishlay

Hi kishlaykirty,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. You have an impressive profile that, from a quantitative perspective, hits all the right marks for top b-schools. The only area I would like to understand better is your community involvement post-graduation. Have you been involved in your community (NGO, a local organization, at work, etc.) post-college?

Like other top programs, Yale looks for more than quantitative data points when evaluating a candidate's profile. An aspect of their evaluation, of course, will be assessing your ability to handle the rigor of graduate school (the rigor of Yale). In the evaluation process, they also want to know if you will fit in with the rest of your class and what sort of contributions you will be making during and post graduation. What do you bring to the table that goes beyond metrics? An aspect that matters to Yale is your ability and willingness to build community. There are additional qualitative elements that they consider when evaluating a candidate. You must be sure that your application itself is strong - your SOP, LOR, interview, etc.--metrics alone will not get you in. I recommend you spend the remainder of the time (between now and R1) to work on your profile.

If you are interested to continue the conversation, please feel free to reach out and schedule a free consultation (contact detail in signature).

Good luck!
