Hello,

Please find below my profile below. Request you to please evaluate this and I thank you in anticipation for your help!

Age – 26 years Male, Nationality – Indian

Education: B.E.(Hons) - Mechanical - BITS Pilani. CGPA - 6.9/10 (WES reqd???)
GMAT – 720 (Q49, V38, IR6), planning to apply to primarily US B schools, also thinking of HEC & Rotman (safe imo)

WE:
3 yrs - Worked in a startup (based out of Bangalore) which operated in the private company research space and provided boutique consulting to PE/IB clients. Joined as Analyst in 2014, got promoted twice in the first two years and moved on from the company as Lead analyst (was involved in managing a team of 10 analysts who were Indian MBA grads). I held multiple roles in the startup from investment research to product management to internal org strategy and helped in scaling the startup from 10 to ~300 employees.
1.5 yrs & present - Associate - II at PwC Advisory (Strategy consulting practice),got promoted in the first year at the firm - Have worked on organization strategy, customer research & GTM strategy projects for clients majorly based out of the US.

Extra curricular
1. Active member of the alumni organization at BITS - Pilani (called BITSAA). Have been volunteering there for the last 2 years majorly handling the scholarships team
2. Got a project recognition award in PwC after just 6 months into the firm
3. Some volunteering in NGO work here at PwC.
4. Have been part of the fest organizing body back in college and was also a core member of the Gaming club
5. Numerous academic accolades in school, 11&12th

Post MBA Goal – Management Consulting / Strategy Consulting specifically in the area of Org strategy & cost optimization

I am planning to apply for Tepper, Ross, Mccombs, Duke (these imo are moderate for me), Wharton, Booth, Stern (these imo are ambitious for me) - all in R2

I would like to understand your view on my profile (as to where I stand) and what are the things that I need to do in order to improve my profile.

Hi saiprajwal1992,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. I really like your professional background and community engagement. I think there is a compelling story there, especially as it relates to your professional goals. You are applying to a number of institutions, and each application will require time. That said, I recommend you retake the GMAT and increase your score before R2 applications are due, especially because of your demographic. There will be other equally qualified candidates with higher GMAT scores applying to these institutions, so how will you differentiate?

Happy to continue the conversation with a live, 30-minute free consultation to discuss your profile. If interested, click here to coordinate.

Good luck!

Hi Sai,

I agree with the feedback on GMAT. Its increasingly tough competition for Indian professional at any of these business schools, even the ones which you have mentioned as moderate. Moreover, your GPA is not great (and no, you will not require a conversion. Submit your original scores), so you'd definitely not want to miss out on the opportunity to convert business schools in Round 2.

In terms of profile improvement, maybe spruce up your extra curricular involvement?
