Determine Thanks for sharing your profile. You have a solid GMAT score and are in the range for your target programs in terms of work experience. To help offset your lower than average GPA, I would consider enrolling in some online business coursework (look at Coursera / Wharton or MBA Math). In terms of school selection, this is such a personal decision and is hard to advise you based on the limited info above. Read through the following post for the dimensions to think about: https://vantagepointmba.com/2017/02/14/ ... -to-apply/.

Thanks for Evaluating my profile.

How much GPA is my percentage in graduation considered as? I have seen different conversions online. Could you please help?

Determine, a few thoughts on your profile evaluation:
  1. The academic pedigree is decent overall and GMAT is good. Put together, this should present a broadly above average academic profile. It would be good to understand where did that 63% put you, relatively in the class and any details therein.
  2. The professional profile has been presented in a pretty technical manner. While the work is what it is, you have to bring that out in a business/english language. The other thing to bear in mind is that most good programs have an average in the 4-5 years range. Given this, it may not be a bad idea to explore waiting another year and further bolstering the profile.
  3. For reasons mentioned here, we don't speculate on school selection chances. Broadly though, the school list looks to be balanced.
  4. The ECs arc looks good and varied during college time. However, recency effect is quite crucial and it is here, that you seem to have a bit of a blind spot. Worth pondering over that too.

Hope this helps some. Do feel free to reach out for any further queries.

Cheers,

Hi Determine,

While your GPA is on the lower end of the spectrum, you do have a fine GMAT score to offset the same to a certain extent (if not entirely). Please address the low GPA in the optional essay for each school.

The leadership experience, as well as the awards, will be looked up as positives and you must present the same in an appropriate manner in your essays.

With regard to the schools, you would definitely have a strong chance at Kelley, Foster, Fisher, and UCLA. If all goes well, you could look forward to some scholarships, as well.

We would like to take this opportunity to offer you a free profile evaluation. Should you feel the need for the same, please do reach out to us.

Good luck!
