Hi,

I am taking one recommendation from my current supervisor.However,for the 2nd recommendation,i am thinking of taking it from the division governor of toastmasters club.I have worked closely with him ( I am the vice president of the club).However,most of the schools want the 2nd recommendation to be of professional nature.Should i take it from him or take it from a supervisor of my previous project(even he can provide a good recommendation).

Thanks,
Shreeraj

Lots of questions in there. Firstly, regarding Cornell, they have seen a meteoric rise in their rankings this year which will attract more applicants than in the past, so unfortunately for you, it will be a challenging spot to get in there with a 630. Additionally, as a reapplicant, you will need to demonstrate significant improvement in your profile so you can justify to the committee why this year has transformed you into a better candidate than you were last year.
In general, if you are aiming for top ten programs, you should be offering a top-tier profile and I think you have much of that squared alway alreaqy. AS for the recos, you should go with the person who can shed the broadest adn deepest insight into your background and work performance vs. someone with a specific title. Work performance does not have to mean professional either, so it's fine to use the gentleman you mentioned with whom you were involved at Toastmasters. The key is finding somone who is in your corner and can comment anecdotally on how you work individually and with teams.

Also to add,i am applying with a 630 score(Q39,V37) to cornell,NUS and emory by month end.I will be retaking GMAT and sending the updated scores by 1st week of feb(provided they are higher).I have 4.5 years of work ex as a SAP Energy consultant in Accenture.Won 2 international competitions and also have good extra curriculars.
I have spoken to the admissions team and they are ok with it.Am i acting too ambitious?
Do you think this is a good plan?Also,last year i had applied to cornell using gre score(now expired) but got rejected after interview.
Should i be changing everything in the essays and select new recommeders or stick to those recommenders and make few changes in essays?

Thanks,
Shreeraj
