Hey Veritas Prep,

So here is my profile :

I'm a 24 y/o Indian working as a Risk Analyst at a Big4 firm in India

1) Past Education - Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering ( GPA 3.5/4) from a top tier Engineering College in India.
Extra curriculars in college - College tennis team captain and active volunteer at tech fests/social service organization. Won a technical competition at college and published 1 research paper.

2) Work Experience :2 years by enrollment. Been working as a risk analyst at a Big 4 firm in India since 08/2016.The work so far has entrusted project management qualities at a very early part in my career. Have handled a risk analysis project for a telecom giant in India for the eastern market ( The responsibilities entrusted have been due to the small team size at my location) . Supervising work of 2 junior analysts at the firm .

3) Extra curricular activities- Formed my own NGO working towards improving living standards of slum dwellers in India. Active part of Round table and Rotary ( Social organizations) for the last 5 years.
Continued playing tennis at City level
( P.S- The consulting profile doesn't give me much time to devote towards extra curriculars)

4) GMAT score- Took the GMAT in march and scored a 680 ( Q 47, V 35) - Quant was a little lower than expected ,but have scored A+ in all mathematic courses during under graduation

5) Recommendation Letters- 2 recommendation letters being given from my performance manager and associate director at the firm . I've worked closely with both of them over the last year.

6) Target Schools - R1 - Emory, Michigan Ross, ASU -Carey
R2- Berkley Haas, texas Mccombs , Georgetown ( Mcdonough) ,Notre Dam -Mendoza


Kindly review my chances of getting into the following schools.
I have a couple of questions
1) Should i retake the gmat ( If you suggest that should i apply to all schools in R2 then as R1 deadlines are in a month and ive been out of touch with GMAT since march)
2) Is it worth giving a shot this year to these schools
3) Incase I decide to wait should i change my job? ( Currently im working in the IT risk consulting Industry which doesn't align with the kind of work and doesn't interest me )
4) Apart from the schools mentioned above, could you kindly suggest a few competitive colleges i can target with 680 incase I'm unable to take the gmat in time for this years deadline.
Thanking you for your assistance.

Regards,

1) Should i retake the gmat ( If you suggest that should i apply to all schools in R2 then as R1 deadlines are in a month and ive been out of touch with GMAT since march)
I WOULD RETAKE IT, YOU ARE COMING FROM A TOUGH DEMO AND ARE BELOW SOME OF THE AVG SCORES AT YOUR TARGET SCHOOLS
2) Is it worth giving a shot this year to these schools
I WOULD NOT APPLY THIS YEAR, LOOKS LIKE YOU CAN USE MORE EXPERIENCE AS YOU ARE A VERY YOUNG CANDIDATE. ALSO THIS WOULD GIVE YOU MORE TIME TO TAKE THE GMAT. NOT A BAD LIST, A FEW REACH SCHOOLS IN THERE, YOU WILL STRUGGLE TO BREAK THROUGH AT THE HIGHER RANKED PROGRAMS ON YOUR LIST
3) Incase I decide to wait should i change my job? ( Currently im working in the IT risk consulting Industry which doesn't align with the kind of work and doesn't interest me )
YOU SHOULD PURSUE THE CAREER PATH THAT MAKES SENSE FOR WHAT YOU WANT TO DO AND GETS YOU CLOSER TO YOUR GOALS WITH OR WITHOUT AN MBA
4) Apart from the schools mentioned above, could you kindly suggest a few competitive colleges i can target with 680 incase I'm unable to take the gmat in time for this years deadline.
I WOULD ALSO TAKE A LOOK AT KELLEY
