Hi,

I gave my first Gmat exam in september and scored 600 [ Q48 and V28].

I decided to retake and took the exam again on 28th Dec and Scored 670 [ Q44 and V38].

Country : India

Graduation : Mechanical Engineering with 3.5 cgpa [ Converted, Actual: 70%]

Work Experience : 2.5 years in Honda 2 wheelers India in Quality Control taking care of testing, market claims, Government regulations [ Mostly all technical areas]

Work Responsibility : Testing of new models, Analysis of market claims, Analysis of market claim data identifying trends and forecasting for future, study and implementation of various new regulations being implemented.

Extra curricular :
Regular member of school and college football and cricket teams, won a couple of quizzes, member of team that won national design competition for designing a prototype of F1 car during college
Participated in annual Formula SAE competition in Fontana,California,USA with a prototype of F1 car and represented 1 of the only 2 indian teams present.Finished in top 50 from 100 participating teams.
Teaching village underprivileged children during free time in graduation

Goal : Basically a shift from technical to management work.To work as a top leader in a company.

Questions:
1. Which programs and schools suit my profile?
2. Is it too late to apply since most schools are done with R2 and R3 applications?[ Really worried about this]
3. Is there any possibility that i can get scholarship at any of the schools?

Nitish-

I am afraid you have waited a bit too late to apply for this season, since round three is widely considered the most challenging in which to gain admission. The reason is that not only are there very few seats left after R2, but you are also at this point competing against everyone on the waitlist in addition to those applying in round 3. In short, you need a very robust profile to be competitive at this point, and with only 2.5 years of WE and a GMAT which although good, is not great, will probably not get you there. I would keep logging the work experience, perhaps taking on some challenges which demonstrate leadership. Not sure if you can begin to take on more responsibilities which would be more like what you want to do in management, but anything you can do would go a long way in demonstrating you are ready to make the transition. You could also retake the GMAT--looks like you are able to improve dramatically with subsequent sittings, so go for a 700 and your doors will open even wider. The Indian applicant pool is quite competitive as you know, so like it or not, you will need to really turn up the credentials as much as you can.
