This is Sathya. This is my first post in this forum. I need your help in evaluating my profile.

I am from India. I took GMAT last month and scored a 730
Score - 730 (Q - 49 V - 41)
AWA - 4
IR - 5

I know that the AWA and the IR score are slightly on the lower side. But still I just want to go ahead and apply for colleges with this score. I am looking for Fall 2014 entry and am planning on applying in the early action so that I might have better chances of landing a scholarship.


10th grade - 91%
12th grade - 96%
UG CGPA - 8.5 (in scale of 4 - 3.5)

Sony India (1+ years)
Will complete 3 years by the time I get into a b-school.


1) Have been playing football and represented college.
2) Have been an active member of Youth Red Cross during my college days.
3) Have organized many events in college and in office.

Am currently working for Sony as a software engineer( I know am competing with a larger pool of candidates!!)

Please let me know where do i exactly stand among the competing group. Let me know what are my chances of getting into a top b - school. Also , please provide me the list of colleges that I could apply for.

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Thanks for the posting.

First of all, let me reiterate that you are in a very competitive demographic with many more qualified candidates than there are spaces allocated. This means that you have to work extra hard to distinguish yourself from this very talented and competitive group.

Based on your basic facts, you do have a decent chance of being admitted to a competitive program, however, I recommend
(a) retaking the GMAT to improve the AWA and IR scores (these are reasons enough to reject you)
(b) start performing some innovative community service
(c) start researching schools that you would consider attending -- and attending information sessions, meeting with alumni and speaking with current students.

Good luck.
