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?
Also, what other schools can i keep in my options in case I dont retake. I am an Indian, female, engineer.
Should I mention this new job that I am taking up in October in my application?

Hi, and thanks for writing! IT sounds like you have a strong academic background, progressive work experience, and good extracurriculars. Since you're coming from a competitive demographic, a higher GMAT would help, though a 710 certainly is solid. I think in addition to the Asian schools you named, for Cornell and Ross (and perhaps a couple of others schools in the top 15, such as Fuqua and Darden) applying R1 with a 710 could be feasible; however, for CBS/Booth/Wharton, I'd target a higher score and apply Round 2 (additionally, for the fact that the Booth and Wharton R1 deadlines are in less than 2 weeks).

For any schools you do apply to, be sure to make a strong case for why that program is a strong fit for you (based on its resources, culture, etc.).

Hope that helps! :)
