Hi

Thank you in advance for taking out time and helping me in reviewing my applications. :)

I scored a 690(V35, Q49) on my first attempt at GMAT. Writing again in a month, targeting 730+. Even if my score do not improve I have decided to apply this year.

Profile:
Indian Male
Age 25

Education
- 7.7 GPA
- Bachelors in Computer Science from Tier-1 college - Was in top 1% of the students who appeared for engineering exam across India
- Graduation Year: 2014

Work Experience:
- 3 years work ex, 4 years at the time of starting of the course

Got placed in Samsung R&D as Software Developer from college.
- Worked on Tizen OS
- Worked on samsung smart TVs
- Got promoted within 8 months.

Left Samsung after 1 year and started my own startup. Worked on it for 2 years, before shutting it down.
- Raised funding which we eventually returned after we decided to shut down the company

Currently working as Assistant Marketing Manager at a Series B funded ecommerce startup

Post MBA goals
Work in marketing with top consumer companies for 4-5 years. Start my own company. (writing my essays around pursuing entrepreneurship as the eventual goal after gaining sufficient experience. The same reason why I joined a startup.)

It would be great if you could gauge my chances at school such as Sloan MIT and Stanford, which encourage entrepreneurship. What other school can I target to have a fair chance to pursue marketing courses? :?:

Thanks for sharing your profile. With your current profile those schools are out of reach for you. I would really focus on the GMAT if those schools are your goal. Your career interests seem petty clear, I would focus on Why MBA and Why Now particularly given your age

Thank you so much for replying. I am writing the exam again in a couple of weeks. I understand a good GMAT score is a must for such schools. Again thanks a lot for replying to my query.

Hi VeritasPrepDozie,

I wrote my GMAT today and got a 730(V49, Q40, IR7). I am targeting Stanford, Stern and MIT in the first round. Do you think this score makes my profile competitive? What are the areas you would suggest I work on?
