I'm an Indian male with a Masters in Financial Engineering at a prestigious US School. Out of school, I've been working at a bulge bracket US bank as a risk analyst, first in the US, now in Asia Pacific - leading a team of 7 members. I've been promoted three times in four years, set up my function in a new office, doubled the number of people I manage. I've had experiences dealing with problems in operations, managment, strategy as a manager and I've realized that these are problems I like solving more than dealing with risk reports. I'm now looking to transition into strategy consulting because I am interested in an idea-driven role than a process driven role and consulting will give me that venue. I'm fairly comfortable dealing with numbers and I'm looking for a school which helps me get better in aspects of leadership, management, presentation and networking.

I'm looking to apply in R1 to five schools: Harvard, Wharton, Kellogg, Chicago Booth, Columbia.

(Some basic demographics)

Demographic - Indian male
Age - 29
GMAT score - 750 (50 V 41 Q)
Masters Financial Engineering (US) - 3.3 GPA
Bachelor of Engineering (India) - 3.7 GPA - non IIT
Work Experience -
IT consulting (9 months) - India - pre Masters
Banking and Investment Management - 4 years (in multiple locations) - 2.5 years in management

What are my chances?

Hi quantumdots,

Thanks for posting. You have a strong candidacy. Your numbers indicate that you have the intellect and focus to thrive in a top tier MBA program. Nothing about your story makes me think there is any reason why you cannot be admitted, but nothing stands out telling me why you should be admitted. All of the reasons why a top program would admit you are in the details of your work experience, personal experiences, personality, values and overall story.

I recommend you read this case study of an Indian engineer who was accepted into a top MBA program. It should provide insight into your application: ... ies/case2/
