Hello,

Please evaluate my profile.

From India an Software Engineer by profession .

Age : 27

GMAT Score : Preparing and planning to apply in R2

Education : B.Sc Computers - 88% ; MS Software Engineering : 6.2/10 GPA

Experience: 7years in IT firm , worked in 9 different projects with Banking and Finance,MEDIA,Retail,Insurance sectors.

Target Schools :Harvard,Stanford,Booth,LBS,ISB/INSEAD/HEC Paris

WHY MBA and WHY AT THIS MOMENT : From my childhood I have interest & passion in business related topics or discussions and ,I want to attend the GMAT this year since with my research understood that work experience is consider an add-on to land in Top Business Schools .

Am I eligible to apply to the target schools since i have done B.SC(Normally the latest or the highest graduation is consider right ?) .

Conside the following points henryford:
  1. From a purely eligibility point of view, I don't see an issue given that you've also done your MS.
  2. For reasons mentioned here, we don't speculate on school selection. However, it might be worth doing a deeper look into your target list which appears very aggressive.
  3. Yes, work experience helps. The 'sweet' spot is actually 4-5 years.
  4. Think more about your work and how you will differentiate. You haven't mentioned anything really about the nature of your work, undegrad/professional brands you've been associated with, career acceleration etc. All these matter, and more. Time's running short on R2 so speed things up and put in your best effort.

Hope this helps some.

Hi MG4MBACrystalBall

Thanks for the reply , and i have few doubts

2.For reasons mentioned here, we don't speculate on school selection. However, it might be worth doing a deeper look into your target list which appears very aggressive.

Can you please say why the selected schools aggressive

3.Yes, work experience helps. The 'sweet' spot is actually 4-5 years.
. Does my experience is not fine :( and i was in process of getting MS so that i will be eligible for further studies so it took sometime long :( .

4.Think more about your work and how you will differentiate. You haven't mentioned anything really about the nature of your work, undegrad/professional brands you've been associated with, career acceleration etc. All these matter, and more.

. Am currently in team lead position in one of the top IT indian firm ,am leading a team of 12 and previously 22 number team and completed the deliveribles and got best team award once . I haveworked with multiple clients around the world but never a direct collaboration has happened .

I may have not achived in my current career is because am totally not intrested and not happy with work am doing , since i was always having the intrest in pursue my dream , which even helped me start a part time e commerce website after one year of hardwork it was a complete failure and greatest lesson in mylife which made me to think i need to do MBA to pursue my dream so after 1 year of research i have determined to pursue it but having so many hurdles to achieve it .

This is the reason my profile doesn't look that much glittering . So is there a chance for. my profile .



Time's running short on R2 so speed things up and put in your best effort
.

Am trying my level best, before taking the R2 in december i will try to understand my score in November mocks and based on the score then i will decide to go in R2 or R3 or next Year R1 .So is that a good plan ?


Please help me out. :angel:

Well the reason for the comment is primarily because you are in a very competitive applicant pool of IT applicants. By your own submission, it appears that you may not have a lot to differentiate upfront. But instead of speculating, I would recommend you do a lot of extensive research on school selection and fitment. The article here may help some.

R3 is not recommended in general since there are hardly seats left and even if you get in, there might be visa issues.
