Dear All,

I am a new member to the GMAT club. I started preparing for GMAT last month and planning to book the date in September month end. My GMAT target score is 700+ (currently scoring around 650 (Q-47, V -35)).

I am an Indian male and have around 12 years of experience in IT (Location: India, UK and Singapore), mainly in banks. I am also a CFA Charterholder. I am planning to apply in one year top tier MBA courses in India, USA and Canada (classes starting in 2018). I want to get into Finance or consulting jobs.

I have a few questions and will be grateful if other members can help me on the same. Are there some other good schools that are I can target? Will I be able to get scholarship? In case yes, which are those colleges where the probability is more?

In addition I feel, my experience is on higher side, will that be a problem?

Thanks & Regards,
Gannuswami

Hi Gannuswami,

Welcome to the GMAT club. I understand the sea of questions that must be running on your mind. We will be happy to talk to you and answer all your queries in one go.

However let me give a brief insight on what I think about your profile.

GMAT - If you are around the 650 score in mocks, you would need to make much more efforts to get a 700+ score in the actual exam. Factoring for exam environment etc. you can easily go 20 marks either ways from your mocks

Though IT is the most competitive pool of applicants, your profile may stand out on account of your international experience. Having said that, most MBA colleges prefer younger candidates and after having more than 12 years of experience, changing sectors after MBA is tough (if you want to do so). Scholarships are far and few but not entirely impossible especially for Indian schools.

Are you only looking at general MBAs or are you also considering an Executive MBA?

Will be happy to talk further. You can connect with me at connect@taterways.com

Thanks for your reply.

For now, my target is one year regular MBA. I understand I need to put more efforts to get 700+. In case I am not close the target score, I will postpone my exam date. I heard your GMAT score is just one of the criteria to get into the college, hence I thought score around 700 would be good with my experience. Will the lower score be a problem in IT pool as it is quite competitive?

In addition, I am not looking for changing sector after MBA. I am looking for some good leadership roles in Finance, Technology or Consulting fields.

Thanks,
Gannuswami
