anantrajgupta,

Nothing especially distinctive about this profile, but then she is not aiming especially high either. I think she will be competitive at all the schools you listed since her GMAT is near their average and schools cut female applicants a little slack on the GMAT score. Given her goals, she might want to consider the following schools, where she probably will have a decent shot: Michigan State, Arizona State, Ohio State.

Good luck to her,

Hi Paul,

Thanks a lot for the encouraging words.
Have a couple of more queries from her side.
1. How do you rate MSHRM and MS in Logistics (MLOG). Are these programs competitive in terms of job prospects and future growth.
2. What would you suggest for a candidate with her kind of profile. An MBA or an MSHRM/MLOG considering financial constraints as getting scholarship with her kind of profile seems less probable.

Thanks in Advance

anantrajgupta,

Sorry for the delayed reply; I've been traveling. If your friend's goal is a career in Operations or Supply Chain then I don't see the relevance of a master's in human resources development. A master's in logistics would be an excellent way to get into the Operations or Supply Chain sector. The MBA offers the advantage of being a more versatile degree and might help her more if her ultimate goal is management. But she could always use the MLOG to break into the industry and then perhaps earn an MBA later if she discovers that she needs it to advance into management.

Hope this helps,
