Positives:
1) Well rounded profile
2) Impressive work ex, Internships and Language Skills

Negatives:
1) Why GRE? : If all else is equal, ADCOMs prefer GMAT over the GRE. Having said that, if you are familiar with GRE format, no harm in pursuing it. Most of M7 accept it. ACE IT to offset the below par GPA
2) GPA is on the lower end of the spectrum.

Your target school list is appropriate and you have a good chance at most of them.

Hello there,
It is impossible to say where you can apply to without knowing a lot more about your work experience and other details too.

Where did you work? what did you do? How much did you advance? what were your titles? What did you learn? what were your biggest achievements? etc. etc. etc. :)

Also, is the 3-month stint your only volunteer work? or do you have more? And what about extra curricular activities?

Please send me more info, and I will be able to advise you further!

Best,
JF

And feel free to drop us a line for a more full-on Free Consultation: http://bit.ly/mbafcGC

To be quite honest with you it's not helpful to do a profile evaluation if we don't have a test score that's fairly final. However your profile looks interesting and diverse, and I do think that your profile is interesting and diverse, and for those schools interested in international students yes you would be a viable Contender. However that is on the condition that you receive a pretty fantastic test score to mitigate the quite worrying GPA. Do you have any kind of major excuse or anything that you could include in the optional information? Consider that you might want to do MBA math.com as well to establish your ability to do the work. It is an online 20-hour program that you can do at your own pace but considered to be good evidence of your ability to do the work. Imported to know more about your goals and how they connect with your current work but I would say that the list of schools it is within reason given the information provided, if the scores that you put down come through for you.

Hi there,

You have an interesting profile. The only weak spot is your academics - namely your GPA and your GRE. These will make application to Darden and Duke difficult. I would still encourage an application though.

The rest should be on par.

Please feel free to reach out to us through the schedule a profile evaluation link below, if you want to discuss over skype.

Regards,
Karthik

Definitely recommend that you do MBA math.com to show quant & academic aptitude and it will also provide a little bit of a secondary transcript for you. If you had time I would recommend hbx core for you to the same point on getting an alternative transcript. But if you are definite about applying in second round at least you MBA math. It's a 20-hour self-paced math program and they send the transcripts directly to the schools.
