Hi,

Can you please evaluate my profile for class of 2020. I know it's quite early. 

I am a Marine engineer by profession, working with professionals of different nationalities onboard the ship, and have a work experience of 2.5 years as of now. I graduated from BITS PILANI with a CGPA of 8.8. I took my GMAT in Dec 2017 and scored 690(V40,Q44). Currently, I work with one of the biggest company in the shipping industry. ( fortune 500)

10th marks - 87.8%
(CBSE) 
12th marks - 87.8%
(CBSE) 

Extra curriculars-
1) State level cricket for Rajasthan ( twice) 
2) Was house captain at junior and senior level
3) Lot of prizes in debate and other intra house sports ( cricket, badminton, basketball, swimming. ) 
4) Got "Good Samaritan award" during graduation. 

College level - 
5) Had leadership roles in college for all the years ( was House Cadet Captain - managing around 300 cadets) 
6) Got scholarship for every semester ranging from Rs 30,000 to Rs 10,000 
7) Got "Spirited performance award" upon graduation. 

Current role-

Includes watch keeping as full incharge of main engine and boiler, inventory management, performance analysis of engines, compressors, purifiers, fuel management (worth of hundred thousands of dollars), part of emergency team. 

Promotion - Obtained MEO class 4 from Govt. Of India. Based on which, I was promoted to next rank. I also write for one of the famous maritime websites as freelance writer. 

Special mention - I was involved in rescue operation of more than 300 refugees from Sudan and Somalia who were trapped in Libya. 

Post MBA goals - I want to work in operations sector specifically SCM. I think my experience of inventory and fuel management will come handy. 

Target school: ISB , IIM-Udaipur PGPX, SP Jain PGDM

Also, can you please suggest me whether it will be a wise decision to do lean six sigma green belt course to make my profile stand out ( given the fact that lot of senior rank mariners also apply to ISB)

Suraj,

How much of this experience is full time work experience after you completed your graduation? ISB will consider only that as your experience, no other.
TFI is great experience to have on your resume, especially if you worked in their 2 year program with schools. However, I am unable to get a complete picture of your work experience from the way you have listed it here, so do elaborate on it.

I'd strongly recommend retaking the GMAT/GRE. You have an otherwise competitive profile, but both your GMAT and GRE are way below the class average, which will certainly put you at a disadvantage.

Gmat score does matter but its not the decisive factor. And also more than the numbers, its the industry and the relevance that maters more and your growth.
