A few points about your profile:

1. your GMAT score is very low. You should retake with an aim to get 700 plus.
2. School marks and achievements don't matter in international b-school applications. Indian b-schools ask for them, but not the international ones.
3. In the professional section, you must talk about the value you brought to the organization's/ client's business. What were your achievements that directly impacted your company/client's top/bottom line? Don't just mention what awards and accolades you won for yourself. This can be an important tip for you while building your resume.
4. What is your career goal and why MBA?

HI! Hoping for your help in evaluating my profile. Thanks!

Demographic
27 years old. Male from the Philippines.
Undergraduate Degree: BS Management Engineering (Honors Program), GPA 2.78
GMAT: 750 (50Q/42V)

Work Experience
5 years in the Oil & Gas Industry working for a “Big Oil” Company
- Completed the competitive “Big Oil” Graduate Program
- Assigned in various regions in the Philippines. Within the 5 years I’ve been with the company I have already held 6 different and challenging roles and have been promoted the equivalent of 4 times.
- Assigned as the terminal manager for one of “Big Oil’s” largest terminals in the country. Had 4 direct reports and over 50 contractors reporting to me. Historically, I was the youngest manager for the terminal I was assigned in.
- In my current role I responsible for the management of several contractors/haulers who deliver to the most significant delivery envelope in the Philippines (Metro Manila)
- I have led several large projects for the company that have provided millions of dollars in benefits. I have also been given significant responsibility by the company (e.g. Terminal Manager role) for the positions I’ve been in.
- I was recognized and awarded as one of the top outstanding employees In the company for my performance in 2018
- Awarded a certificate of appreciation from the Philippine Coast Guard for my contributions to the safety of the seafarers in one of my projects
- Every year we go through performance rankings, and I have consistently been ranked high against my peers and have been given excellent performance feedback.

Extra Curricular
Triathlete
- I’ve joined many triathlon’s including two 70.3 Ironman events.
- Currently I am training for my first full Ironman 140.6 which will be in 2020.
Volunteer Work
- I’ve participated in various coastal clean up activities across the Philippines thanks to the opportunities provided to me through my work

Reason for MBA (Still working/reflecting on this part)
- Seeing the “bigger picture”, I’ve been quite fortunate in having several roles across operations but I do not yet have experience in other areas of business such as finance, marketing, sales, etc. I plan on majoring in strategy so I can capitalize on the various classes provided by MBA’s schools to develop a more wholistic approach when it comes to solving business problems.
- Diverse culture and international student profile. Adapting the best practices and management styles of different people. Coming from an “asian” background I do tend to be shy and not vocal, this is something I hope I can work on by being exposed to the “western” side of the world.

Questions
- How strict is Rotman’s 3.0 final year GPA requirement? I do not meet it as my final year average is 2.97

Hi everyone.

I am looking at Rotman as a school I want to go to the coming year. Request your comments and any suggestions for schools other than IMD would be highly appreciated.

Nationality: Indian ( Male, 30 )

Undergrad: Nirma University, Ahmedabad, CGPA : 7.76, First Class with Distinction,

GMAT: 660 ( Q 48, V 33) - Less than Gmatprep mocks given so will be attempting once more

Work experience: Project management , 7 years of experience in development and delivery of
capital infrastructure(T&D) projects with Tata Power
• Have been part of core teams in developing energy assets( capex) acheiveing capitalisation ranging USD 5M to 75M.
and increasing installed transmission capacity upwards of 2000 MVA.
• Led project execution at site for major capex projects managing site team of OEMs, large contractors and local vendors( team size approx 150+)
• Have managed multidisciplinary engineering site activities for a major project transition from EPC to BOQ model( short close contract of major EPC player midway in the project led to change in execution philosophy).
• Have led department HSE activities as departmental coordinator for 6 months. Prepped HSE dashboard for senior management, analysed operational and audit data for multiple sites to help bring two important safety improvements that were showcased in company's annual innovation event.
• Worked on project sites with international teams of various OEMs for a consistent time frame. ( 5 years)

Community and others:

• While working for transmission line projects in Mumbai, I have been actively involved in regular programs where people living below high voltage transmission lines are sensitized on the dangers of EHV lines.
• I have worked also with a couple of tourist organisation in Goa for 2 months where I had been involved in sustainable cooking practices in a small village for a large tourist crowd.

Post MBA goals
• Post graduation I want to continue in the energy sector as my interests are strongly aligned with the renewable space. My short term goals include getting to work on the manufacturing side of the project supply chain ( Companies like ABB, Vestas, Siemens) as till now I have worked for a utility and client side. Long term goals are to work on large scale distributed energy sufficiency programs for developing economies.

Looking forward to your comments. Thanks.

Hello,

I would appreciate an honest profile evaluation. Thanks in advance.

Background and nationality
- Canadian, 25 Years old, Male

Undergrad Information
- University of Waterloo (Canada), Major in Mathematics, GPA 3.0 (could round to 3.3 if counting only 3rd and 4th-year level courses)

GMAT: 710~730

Work experience
- total of 1.5 years in co-op (mostly IT, data analytics roles) during undergrad (I'm aware only post-graduate experience is relevant; still planning on showing my co-op experience in resume)
- 2 years as an actuarial associate at an insurance corporation (largest provincial insurance board in Canada)
- 3 months+ as an operation analyst at the back office of one of the Big Five's investment bank divisions (current role)

Community and others
- youth mentor for underprivileged children in the GTA
- enjoy blogging; showcasing my writing/interests (investing, fin-tech, mental health, programming) through blogging

Post-MBA goals (multiple)
- short term: move into front-office at an investment bank (IB associate, corporate banking, equity research, sales and trading)
- long term: leadership role at a fin-tech company

Misc
- I enjoy working on side projects (programming an investment-management robo-advisor, designing and launching a marketing campaign for community volunteer work)

Thanks!



You have solid work experience with a great gmat score(for UofT). Would require potentially a 730+ for top schools in the states. UofT gmat usually has an average of 665-670. As long as it’s above that you have a shot. Yours is potentially 40 points higher which gives you an edge. Im sure you would be selected for an interview. As long as you nail the interview and focus on writing great essays with references to back you have your work cut out.

GPA could be held against you but being from Waterloo myself, math faculty is no joke so the GPA being on the lower side is understandable. If you have specific questions ask.

Cheers.

I wanted your advice on my profile and whether the mba programs i am targeting for the 2021 admit realistic and within my reach. (IE not in the dream school category).
My target schools are Columbia, Kellogg, Michigan ross, Berkeley haas and tuck.

I am a bachelors of commerce graduate with 6.4/7 cgpa from hr college in mumbai (Mumbai University) and a gmat score of 740.

I worked full time while in college , 2 years in an equity research and mutual fund sale firm and 1 year articleship as i was pursuing CA at that time. ( cleared 2 out of the three levels but finals are left which i will not give)

I am a US CFA charterholder and US CMA certificate holder. Have also completed US CPA and US CAIA (chartered alternative investment analyst).
I have been working past 3 years in a mid sized accountancy firm based in small city in rajasthan, india.
I had to shift to rajasthan due to severe family emergencies therefore started working there as my presence was required for family.
I left my job after two years as i found a wonderful opportunity in mineral and mining and have started my own venture in partnership.
Though it can be managed and is stagnant while in the state , i wanted to make it a wholly export unit and establish in strategic locations across couple of countries like in canada and portugal and run it as a more corporate and an organized business organisation, much different from how mining is run in this state.
Therefore i planned on pursuing an mba which will help me manage and organize my business in the manner i want to run it and expand it.
I am ready to invest and grill myself for a 2 year mba in order to take the maximum out of it. 

On the extra curricular activity note, i am a registered mumber of the heartfulness organisation (for meditation) for the past 4 years. Travelled all across the country and have organised various seminars and workshops, played a big part in the green initiative and planted by myself about 40 plus trees. Have also organised meditation sessions for army personnel in my state and have also successfully implemented heartfulness for kids in various schools wherein we are training teachers on how to plant this seed right from a very young age in students.
While in college, one of my most proudest moment was when i lead an NSS team ( national service scheme) and did something out of box by forming a union for the domestic help who were in very bad condition in mumbai so that the local police as well as the members themselves can protect the right of others and to make sure that they are not exploited, due to this the police area head and i had an exclusive coverage as well.
Despite my work experience, the thing i am concerned about is my international exposure in job. That is an area i lack.

My motivations for Rotman - Right in the centre of the Canadian financial services industry. Easy immigration policies of Canada. Top tier 2 year MBA in Canada. Have already attended a couple of classes by Rotman faculty at Hult, were impressive.

Hi @kansalharsh950206,

Rotman is a good pick when it comes to Consulting as a post-MBA goal. 10% of the class of 2019 went for consulting roles. And Toronoto is a great city for Entrepreneurs (since Entrepreneurship is your long-rem goal)

With a GMAT score of 700 (which is well above the average), I see a good chance for you to make it to Rotman. What’s going to matter most in your application is how you connect the experiential dots and build a great story to stand out from other applicants in the pool. Make sure you highlight diversity of experience in your application. You can easily use your startup experience to your advantage.

One quick question: Including your startup experience, what is the total no. of work experience that you'll have at the time of matriculation?

Cheers!

Hi premranjan002,

Your GMAT score of 690 is good enough. However, I'd need to learn more about your work experience in order to evaluate your chances better. It would be essential to understand your post-MBA goals as well.

Rotman highly values 'diversity' and 'business for social good'. Make sure you highlight these values in your application and connect them to your experience. It would also be useful to just introspect and come up with the gaps in your profile that you think an MBA from Rotman will help you. Once you have this sorted- What’s going to matter most in your application is how you connect the experiential dots and build a great story to stand out from other applicants in the pool.

Cheers!

[Hi @kansalharsh950206,

I get it :) I had a similar case when I was writing my application for b-schools. I ran my startup alongside my regular job for a few months too. And yes you can't mention it as additional work experience, but there are ways you can portray examples from both (job and startup) in your application, which would definitely count as additional experience (just not numerically), and that really gives you an edge over other applicants in the pool.

If you'd like, I am happy to hop on a call with you this weekend to discuss your profile further, feel free to url=https://www.mbaandbeyond.com/calendly?utm_source=gmatclub&utm_medium=signature&utm_campaign=jun10_1]Schedule a call[/url] as per your convenience.

Hello gmat1102,
You have a decent profile for Rotman. The following appeal to me about your profile:
- Decent academics
- International work experience
- Differentiated work experience among the pool you represent
However, do you have any extra-curricular beyond the collegiate level?
Also, you may want to push your GMAT score to 700 for a very real chance at Rotman, though nothing should stop you from applying even with your current mock scores.

All the best!!

Hi gmat1102,

Nice profile there! Rotman highly values 'diversity' and 'business for social good'. And I can see you can easily bring out these examples in your profile owing to your work experrience with MSMEs.

Although your average mock score is at par with the average GMAT score for Rotman, I'd still suggest you push for a 700. With that score and your work experience, I see a good chance for you to make it to Rotman. It would also be useful to just introspect and come up with the gaps in your profile that you think an MBA from Rotman will help you fill. Once you have this sorted- What’s going to matter most in your application is how you connect the experiential dots and build a great story to stand out from other applicants in the pool. Make sure you highlight diversity of experience in your application, something that Rotman hugely looks for while evaluating applications.

It would good to understand your post-MBA goals, in order to evaluate your profile better.
When are you appearing for your GMAT?

If you'd like, I am happy to hop on a call sometime this week to understand how you are tackling your situation and assess your chances in further detail for Rotman.
Feel free to book my calendar as per your convenience.
