Hello everybody,

My name is Bob, and I have been an active user of the GMAT club and have enjoyed the ride a lot. Thanks to all, especially bb and Bunuel you have been great help guys!

I was wondering which schools to choose to apply that would give me the highest chances of winning a scholarship.

My profile:

Male 26 y.o. - Uzbekistan, Tashkent
GPA: 4 (I suppose, I received a first class honors degree in Banking and Finance from Bangor University at a campus in Tashkent)
GMAT: 680-720 (on average) plan to take it this Months to apply for the second round.
WE: 1.5 years as an Executive Director at a consulting and trainning school with a focus on IELTS (personal score 8.0, 2012) - will be two years by the time I get into school (hopefully)

*** I have done a whole gamut of jobs ranging from cooking to sales for varying periods of time but primarily have been busy with Teaching English and Instructing students on IELTS. I have had to teach English as it provided the most flexibility for me to be able to study and work.

I was a Leader of Student Council at my University and in addition to this chaired the education sector where we accomplished a lot of things.
I was the captain of Debate team, innitiated the drama club and many other things.
Speak: Uzbek, Russian, English, Spanish (intermediate)

As for my age, I entered University two years later than I was supposed to on account of the fact that I entered only to "Contract" basis and wasnt able to pay for my education, preppared for two years and finally won a grant. The situation is similar now, I will not be able to pay for my education but nonetheless want to get into a good school hoping to make up for my shortcomings with my academics, I have been preparing for GMAT for almost half a year, clearly, not as properly as I could. I started with a very weak quant, and only recently started paying attention to the verbal part - huge mistake.

my recent mock results from Global Experts (great jobs guys!):


650 - Q46 V34 (october 17)
730 - Q47 V42
650 - Q46 V34
620 - Q46 V29
720 - Q49 V38
710 - Q48 V40
740 - Q48 V42
690 - Q48 V36
710 - Q45 V42
680 - Q46 V37
710 - Q48 V39 (November 19)


Please advice on which schools I can target, so that I dont spend any extra money on registration fees and dont waste my time preparing for them. (locations - primarily US, Canada)

What have you done professionally that merits an advanced degree in management? There is nothing coherent with your path that you highlighted above, and unfortunately, that matters as much or more than anything else in your profile.

I think you need more time to gain work experience, gain a promotion or two, set a clear goal and then apply. You can certainly take the gmat soon as it is good for 5 years, but I don't think an MBA is right for you just yet.

So many factors go into securing a scholarship in b-school. So would be tough to really get an accurate answer here. I would say the way to think about it is, your profile needs to feel superiors to the avg admitted student, so not only would the school admit you but would give you money to attend. So as your putting together your list look at programs where Your GMAT / GPA / credentials exceed the averages listed by the school
