Prashant13, are you sure this was mentioned on your degree? Bachelor of technology Marine Engineering is not offered by BITS Pilani as far as I know. I have graduated from the same college and I know this for a fact.

Maybe you graduated from the affiliated college from Pune? Mentioned in the second answer here. You might want to mention that to get a more accurate profile evaluation.

All the best!

Hi,
Tolani Maritime Institute was affiliated to BITS,Pilani till 2017 and candidates in TMI received their degrees from BITS.
Please check before commenting on a platform like GMAT Club Forum.

Also, instead of a quick search on Google and randomly putting an answer from Quora, try to check the facts on the official websites.

Hope you learnt something new.

Cheers..!!!

Yes. I have definitely learnt something new today. :-)

Also, I hope you do not misunderstand my intention to call out your post. I was only surprised to see marine engg. being offered by BITS which is situated in the middle of a desert :-D. So I tagged you to confirm and increase my vast knowledge further. Also, I did a quick search and did find out exactly what you replied with so my search was quick and effective. ;-)

As far as commenting on a platform as GMAT Club goes, it is all about information. And now, with the additional input about Tolani Maritime Institute being open to view by all, it will only help others who may have a similar profile like yours or similar doubts like mine to save their time.

Hope it makes things clear.

Best,

Hi manvivarma,

I would say in my view Fuqua is a reach for you with just 2 years of experience thus far (though would be 3 at matriculation) and a 3.3 GPA; that said sounds like you can make a strong case for the qualify of your experience outweighing the quantity which is great. The more examples of leadership you have, both inside and outside of work, the more that will help also, and recommendations could be key here to make a stronger case that you are ready for this step etc. Finally connecting well with Fuqua can help; showing you know the program well etc. I feel there could be a shot but it's less clear, tougher to predict, but worth trying if you are up for it. (Side note if happen to be female I would say that will help some). If you tried this year and it did not work out, then as a reapplicant next year with more experience and leadership I would be optimistic. If you start working asap you should have time for R2 deadlines. Good luck either way!

Intake Year: 2019

Pre-MBA Career: Public Relations and Communications
Post-MBA Career: Consumer Goods (Marketing and Brand Management)
GMAT: 710
GPA: 3.3
Years of Work Experience: 2

Notes: My GMAT score breakdown is: (710- Q: 49 and V: 38).

A brief on my background: I have worked for two years in a top-notch international PR and Communications agency (post my under-grad) in Mumbai and served a plethora of MNCs and large scale conglomerates across corporate and consumer verticals in those two years. I was among the youngest people at the agency and was promoted within a year of working there. I have also actively helped in crisis and reputation management for one of the largest corporate crisis in India during my stint at the agency, and truly believe that my quality of work experience has been great over the past two years.

I specialised in PR during my undergrad and carried out five internships successfully during the same time. Three at non-profit organizations and two at industry-specific agencies. Through school, college and work, I have always taken up roles of responsibility and leadership, actively looked out for and asked for opportunities and always showcased the urge to learn.

Additionally, I have always actively participated in extra-curriculars at school and college and performed extremely well academically. I would like to do an MBA with a major in marketing, from a top B-school in the US specifically, so as to add to my experience of PR and communications and achieve concentric growth around my core competencies. Furthermore, coming from a advertising and PR background, I have a fair understanding of the changing communication landscape and would like to deep dive into understanding brand management, disruptive marketing and ways to break through the current clutter to create an impact or spearhead behavioural change.

That aside, in the long run I would like to join the C-suite of an MNC, lead from the forefront and create a lasting impact on the society using my position. However, to get there, I do believe that it is important for me to venture out into relatively new territories for me, i.e. finance, accounting, sustainability, micro-economics and macroeconomics among the others. Hence the MBA.

Furthermore, why the MBA now? Well, because I want to make the switch from the agency side to the corporate side now, and no better way to bridge the gap than do an MBA that would provide me with a holistic understanding of the other side, before I step into it.

Starting today, I have about 50 days till the round 2 deadline to get my essays in place. Does Fuqua seem like a good option and what are my chances basis my profile?

You are asking for your profile to be evaluated for Fuqua and yet I do not see it in your prospective schools in your profile.

Haha, while that is true it is not a deterring factor for profile evaluation now, is it?
