Hi Guleeka,

I think overall your profile is in line with Tepper. Whether to retake / wait really depends on whether you think you could score higher. Were you practicing higher on mock exams? Your score puts you in a good position for Tepper, but of course a higher score would improve your chances. The other advantage to waiting is that you could build up more work experience (since 2 years is a little low), perhaps secure a promotion (?), and at least gain some more leadership experience. So I don't think waiting a year would hurt you.

Otherwise, the Big 4 experience is great, and the community involvement too. I also think the family business angle to your goals will be interesting and is less common, so definitely highlight that.

Best of luck!
Kate

Hey,
I am a first year student at Tepper. I can give you my two cents!

The strong points in your profile:
You are an engineer who has worked in business roles.
Start-up experience
Weak points:
Your GMAT - I am not what is the breakup like but I would suggest that if the quant is low you go ahead and take it again. If not, make the other areas of your application real strong. Gmat is just one of the many application components!

I would suggest you try and highlight the following points in your application-

How you impacted the P&L- what was your specific role- $$?
Talk about the strategies you implemented to generate the revenue?

Also, make sure that your resume is in Tepper format. Highlight the transferable skills such as analytical thinking, out the box thinking etc in your resume.

Do let me know if you need some more help.

Hey,
I am a student at Tepper. According to me you have a good profile. The strongest part of your profile is experience with one of the Big4s.

If I were in your place I would give it another try. I see you have a real good score and a well balanced one too! Given the fact that you have just 2-3 years of work ex. you can actually take the exam once again this year and apply next year.

Anything above 740 would increase your chances exponentially!

Good luck and do let me know if you want to know something else.

Hey,
I suggest you retake the gmat. Anything above 740 would increase your admission chances. 'Indian Male' is a real difficult category and therefore I would not bank too much on the scholarship.
If you choose to go ahead with this score, i would suggest you highlight your entrepreneurial venture in your application. Emphasis on the good piece- you should the courage to risk it all and that is a big thing- Tepper values it alot!!
Tepper is an analytics/quants heavy school- You should def highlights projects in which you applied your analytical skills and generated results.

Also, I am not sure why you changed the industry so many times but if at all you can show that in a positive light it would help your cause!

Let me know if you need any further advice.

Female in a quant heavy world - is the only highlight here.
I'd not discourage you on GMAT or such (I had made it with 690). But if you can / are going to re-take, do it and convey that intention to AdCom.
By the way, what is electronical engineering?
I am not doubting your commitment or success, but too many promotions in a very short time!! Who does that start up belong to? If you are a co-founder, I may think that you promoted yourself!! Make it a story for each promotion - pretty much. Like, I achieved this and resulted in a promotion - or something similar.
And finally, your community service etc. Seems you are out of college for 4 and you had couple of years of post college service record - do I assume 2? Some times, it is not length but the impact that matters. Did you have an impact? What were your drivers? Do they still push you in certain direction? These reflections would be backbone of your essays / application.
You are successful, no doubt. Is it enough to get into Tepper based on personal success? Probably not. What else? Any hobby, any passion? Don't come across as a solely career focused soul - that won't take you far - even with improved GMAT.

OOF!! No offense...but you should really work on your constructive criticism...its pretty rude to tell someone that their "only highlight" is that they are a "female in a quant heavy world"

OP...please wait for one of gmatclub's many helpful consultants to respond to your profil evaluation. They are the experts and will give you the best tips on how to present your profile and any steps to take to address weaknesses before you apply. Good luck!

I meant no offence - if it felt / perceived that way, here I am apologizing at first opportunity.
I felt that the information provided by her had no other details. So, when I said 'only highlight' was only in regards to what she put there. And if you read my post further, you'd have seen that I asked about hobbies, passions and such.
Did I ever say You have no ohter qualities at all? If I look again at the sentence, it included word 'here' in it and that is what I meant.

Oh well, those were my words and what I meant. How you (Future PM) or others interpret is something I can't control - but by no means, I meant any offence.

Hello,
Indian Male Engineer working as Mechanical Unit In-Charge for one of the seven units of Haldia Petrochemicals Limited, the third largest petrochemical company in India that has annual turnover of $3Bn.

Undergaduate : Bengal Engineering & Science University (CGPA : 7.8)
GMAT - 710(Q50V35)

I joined the organization in 2012 and have been escalated to the role Unit In-Charge with three promotions in 5 years. My job is to ensure smooth operation of the plant (the unit that I'm responsible for), develop strategic procurement of spare parts, and lead the team of 5 engineers and 18 support staffs. I have successfully managed to deliver a 98% availability of the plant, reduce breakdown with quantifiable benefits for the company, and develop leaner operation practices and better procurement strategies.
I am presently having the post of Joint Secretary for the social club of our organization that fosters the development of all employees and their families through organizing various cultural, social, recreational, athletic, and professional events.
I want to apply for Tepper's operations management course, but belonging to the most competitive pool of Indian Male Engineer, I am really not sure about this decision. Even if I apply, how much chance do i have to secure a scholarship?

Sayak,

Your work experience sounds quite strong.

I'd be a little concerned about your GMAT score, which is low for an Indian applicant applying to Tepper. Nevertheless, if you really have your heart set on the b-school, go ahead and apply and present a very strong application. You already have an admit, so you have nothing to lose. From my past experience, I'd doubt a scholarship.

I'd recommend you also apply to some other b-schools which are traditionally strong in operations and you have a stronger chance of an admit. See this: https://www.usnews.com/best-graduate-sc ... s-rankings

Thanks for the evaluation. I am going to write the GMAT exam again on 11th Feb. However, the recommended deadline for international candidate is on January. Will it yield any result if I apply in the third round, and in that case could I hope for any scholarship?

I have successfully managed to deliver a 98% availability of the plant, reduce breakdown with quantifiable benefits for the company, and develop leaner operation practices and better procurement strategies.
I am presently having the post of Joint Secretary for the social club of our organization that fosters the development of all employees and their families through organizing various cultural, social, recreational, athletic, and professional events.
I want to apply for Tepper's operations management course, but belonging to the most competitive pool of Indian Male Engineer, I am really not sure about this decision. Even if I apply, how much chance do i have to secure a scholarship?


Sayak,

Your work experience sounds quite strong.

I'd be a little concerned about your GMAT score, which is low for an Indian applicant applying to Tepper. Nevertheless, if you really have your heart set on the b-school, go ahead and apply and present a very strong application. You already have an admit, so you have nothing to lose. From my past experience, I'd doubt a scholarship.

I'd recommend you also apply to some other b-schools which are traditionally strong in operations and you have a stronger chance of an admit. See this: https://www.usnews.com/best-graduate-sc ... s-rankings


Thanks for the evaluation. I am going to write the GMAT exam again on 11th Feb. However, the recommended deadline for international candidate is on January. Will it yield any result if I apply in the third round, and in that case could I hope for any scholarship?



In that case apply next year in R1. Chances of a scholarship in R3 are next to none :)

Hi mnelakuditi, Sorry it's been awhile :oops: since your original post, but wanted to get back to you with feedback on your profile.

I think your work experience is really strong, not just being a female applicant from a technical field, but also the mix of big & small company experience you have provides an interesting perspective. Plus the quick promotions are impressive (and make sense since startups typically have more flexibility to promote star performers quickly). Your management experience is also a plus, not as many applicants have formal management experience as you might expect, so definitely highlight that. Your GMAT is strong too, especially quant. Make sure your written materials are well executed and you (plus your recommenders) show your strong communication (and other soft skills) to balance that out.

Your community involvement seems light compared to other applicants, though maybe you've not included all the details here. Use the application to showcase your personal interests and passions outside of work, since Tepper looks for individuals who are not just smart and accomplished, but also ones who will contribute to and be actively involved in the school community.

Best of luck!
Kate

Hi alphaAbhishek123!
I remember seeing your profile on our Ask mbaMission thread last year. I'm glad you've narrowed in on Tepper, as I think that's a good choice for you.

The global project experience is wonderful, and it's great to see some involvement in extracurriculars too. I think overall you have strong chances for Tepper!

Only concern is still that you are on the low end of experience level (average at Tepper is about 5 years), so make sure you present clear reasons for why you want to get your MBA now, and showcase your leadership experience whenever possible.

Best of luck!
Kate

Hello All,
I would like to have my profile evaluated. I just took the GMAT in June and am ready to apply for business school in Fall 2019. Here is my information:
GMAT: 710 (50Q/34V/6 IR) Have not received my AWA score yet
GPA: ~ 3.37 (over a 3.5 my last year)
Degree: BA Economics, UCLA. Transfer GPA - 3.8
Experience: 2 years as an analyst at a real estate investment company(1 year at current firm). Work in both acquisitions (acquired 3 hotels for $150mm since I started) and asset management (6 of our current hotels, and 135 hotels for a third party). Had previous internship experience in PWM.
Extracurricular: Over 700 hours working as a volunteer at the local hospital, as a tutor, and as a coach for middle school children. No experience in professional leadership/managerial roles. Was a member of Ski and Snowboard team in college. Mentor a student at UCLA. High School Valedictorian.
Background: Indian (born and raised in California). 25 years old. Typical middle class story for a kid in Orange County.
What I want from business school: First, I would like to work in finance, either in real estate acquisitions, PWM, or VC/PE. I would like to gain both the professional and personal skills that business school can provide. Finally, I need a change in my life.
Letters of Rec: Plan on asking my CIO and an Associate at my current company for my two recommendations. I also have my previous employer in case. Do not have a professor at UCLA I can ask since I did not spend a lot of time in office hours.
Other: The one issue which will make things difficult is that I was accused of cheating in college. I received academic probation and I'm sure I will have to discuss what happened. I would like some feedback whether this is a automatic red flag. It was a mistake and I've grown from it, but I am sure it will leave a mark.

Thank You,
GMAT Club Bot
