Hi,

My name is CHARAN. I am writing to you for your valuable advice, as I plan to apply for my MBA later this year for 2019 intake.

My profile:

Current Job: Analyst (Telecom sector) in a multi-national Market research & Advisory company

WE: 48 months ( mostly in Market Research & product development domains in Education, Risk & Due diligence, Background verification and Telecom Industries)

Aim: To pursue career in Management consulting

My main motivation to pursue MBA:

Need a transition from market research industry to strategy consulting. I love solving business problems and implementing strategies more than just writing writing reports, analysing trends or suggesting recommendations.

Education: UG: Chemical Engineering, NIT Bhopal (premier institution), India

GPA: 7.4/10

GMAT: 710

Target colleges: Ross, Haas, Stern, kellog, Tepper, Goizueta, McCombs, Mays, Kelly.

Please evaluate my profile and tell me whether I am headed in the right direction.

Do you think my profile is way too diverse or is it appealing enough for my aspirations to be a Generalist consultant post MBA?

Do I stand a chance in the above mentioned colleges?

Thank you!

With the 710 GMAT from India-- Ross, Haas, Kellogg, Stern, McCombs will be tougher. I think you could have a shot at Kelley, Goizueta and Tepper. But just saying this without really understanding more is not enough to say you are a slam dunk at any of these. In terms of your profile-- you have some interesting work and you may be able to leverage your research background or your telecom industry expertise to make a transition to consulting. Don't overlook how important it is to get to know the programs well-- and you can do this even from afar--https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com/5-tips-connecting-dream-mba-program-india/
And also if you want more specific guidance on your profile-- set up a consult with us at this link: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/ and if you have any trouble getting that scheduled reach out to me via private message and I will help you get connected.

Do you think my profile is way too diverse or is it appealing enough for my aspirations to be a Generalist consultant post MBA?

Do I stand a chance in the above mentioned colleges?

Thank you!
