Hello,

Kindly review my profile and share your valuable inputs.

Profile: I completed my graduation in Computer Science Engineering from one of the top 10 colleges in India in 2014 with a CGPA of 8.75. I have been working with Bank of America since then, first as a Senior Technical Associate and then promoted to Senior Software Engineer in January 2017. I am joining an algorithmic trading firm in October 2017, as a Product Manager.

Extra-curricular: I am one of the co-founders of Teach for Vellore, a non profit initiative working on similar grounds as Teach for America or Teach for India.
In 2016, I had also co-founded 90percent.in, an initiative to promote financial awareness among the masses.
I am a Co-leader in an Adventure firm in Mumbai, India and have conducted over 8 treks with over 100 people.
I am an Environment ambassador in Bank of America and was Head of Critics, Toastmasters Chennai, Bank of America chapter.
I also have completed diploma in Fine Arts from a fine institute in my school days and was the School Head too.

I gave my GMAT last year, with the score of 710 (50 in Quant, 36 in verbal, 6 in AWA and 4 in IR)

Below is the shortlist which I have done:

Location
1) US - Cornell, Columbia, Booth, Wharton, Ross
2) Asia – ISB/NUS/NTU/HKUST/CUHK


Areas of interest : 1) General Management, 2) Finance

I need your help in deciding which colleges I should apply to.

I am targeting top 15 US B schools. So should I apply in Round 1 or give GMAT again and apply in Round 2 with a higher score?

Hi there,

You definitely have a good profile to apply for top US b schools. I see you getting in to your target Asian schools with that score. Cornell should be good to go too. Regarding the M7 schools, one can never be too sure. You have all the pieces of the puzzle and it will completely depend on how you present them. Yes, I know the argument of scoring above average GMAT score for typical Indian candidates such as yourself but I believe 710 is a decent score. If you can work both on improving your GMAT score, work on your applications and at the same time juggle your day-to-day work then I'd recommend applying to a 3-4 schools in R1 and leaving some for R2. Hope this helps. Good Luck !

Best,
