Hi Guys, Please evaluate my profile

Indian Male, 29 years
UG: Bachelor of Fashion Technology (specialisation in Fashion & Apparel Production) - National Institute of Fashion Technology, New Delhi (consistently ranks top in Asia among its Peer colleges)
GPA: 6.9/10, among the top 25% of the batch (4 as per mba.com conversion table)
PG: MA in HRM with CGPA 6.5/10 (Among top Universities for graduate studies in India)
GMAT: 720 (Q49, V39)

Additional Coursework:
- Business Analytics Specialisation (4courses + 1 capstone project), Wharton Online
- Business Stats with R, Duke University online
- Product Management Foundation - Darden University online

Work Experience: 4 years
Industry: Indian Conglomerate -Aditya Birla Group (1.5 years, worked in HR & Project Management as part of management rotation program across Fashion Retail and Manufacturing) + Entrepreneurship (2.5 years)
*My graduate rotation experience Aditya Birla was sort of internal consultancy experience as each rotation would start with a problem statement for a given sector/business unit, and involve problem diagnosis, creating and deploying solutions. While each rotation (or project) differed in complexity and area of concern, they all were strategic and of high impact in nature. Also got an opportunity to work on a global assignment in US.
*Entrepreneurship: I always had entrepreneurial bug, so when an opportunity to join the startup in space of fashion accessories came up (as Co-founder) 2 years ago, I immediately made the jump. For the last two years, I have dabbled across operations and marketing. Managed launch of 3 product categories, reworked marketing strategy to increase reach by 3.5X, took care of inventory planning and vendor management beside taking care of talent management. It has been a great learning curve until now, however, at times I found myself lacking in knowledge/expertise in taking things forward.

Extra-curricular Activities:
- Adventure Sports, have done multiple treks, hope to conquer the Himalayas someday.
- Huge comics nerd, and have been involved in comics strip design in college days
- Actively participated in sports, winning few medals at the university level.
- Was part of various clubs like the Social and Editorial club in leadership roles.

Community Service:
- Have been involved in multiple NGOs throughout my career in space of education. Presently involved (as an advisor) with a leading organization working to improve livelihood access to the young marginalised girls.

Post MBA Goals: Looking to get into strategy consultancy/Technology (Product) Firm/Consumer Tech side of Retail
Long-Term vision: I'm passionate about tech, and want to build a business at the intersection of fashion and technology.

Thanks in Advance

I'm targetting Wharton, Haas, MIT and Chicago beside Ross. Should I target other colleges as well? (to be on the safer side), thinking about giving GMAT, 740/750 seems possible.

Hi, and thanks for writing! Your high GMAT score will help offset your GPA somewhat - however, Ross is very competitive so I would also suggest taking a supplemental quant course (stats, calc, microecon, accounting) in person or online and getting an A to show the AdCom your academic commitment to the program. I think your work experience is on the lower end though (agerage is 4-6 years), so I suggest waiting a year to apply to give yourself time for this course, potentially to increase your leadership involvement within your extracurricular activities, and to gain more responsibilities at work. Hope that helps!

Hi - I see that you posted on the Stern board as well. Same advice applies here (except that in this case, in the short essays is where you'll want to showcase your personal attributes/accomplishments).

White male, US
GPA: 2.87, West Point
GMAT: 730
Work experience: 6 years in army prior to matriculation, field artillery branch, 1 combat deployment.
Post MBA goals: Work in investment banking for 3-5 years prior to starting a hedge fund (based on my success and knowledge of investments, not sure if adcom will bite), start an real estate investment/development company in ~10 years, eventually acquire an NFL team.

I figure its a crap shoot at best with my poor GPA. Considered listing career goals that more align with my experience but decided against it. Nothing to do now but hope for the best. I also applied to McCombs. Thoughts?

Hi, and thanks for writing! Your GMAT score is solid, but the GPA is a concern - hopefully you addressed it in the optional essay and have other mitigating factors (such as supplemental coursework). Regarding your goals - there's quite a bit going on with your longer-term goals. Ross asks only about your short-term goals in the career essay, but if interviewed you'll want to explain what the motivations are behind your short and long-term ambitions, so think about your story and presenting an ambitious BUT realistic path. For example, why do you want to start your own hedge fund instead of just entering one? What interests you in investments in the first place? And, why a real estate investment/development company and NFL team? Best to pick one long-term path that stems from your personal/professional experiences and short-term goals.

Hope that helps a bit - best of luck!

I will be applying through the Consortium in round 2, I would like to know if I have a legitimate chance at Ross.

Background:
29 year old Hispanic male from a low-income household.
Enlisted U.S military prior to attending undergrad, graduating in spring 2019.
Neither parent attended college with one parent not completing high school.

Undergrad:
Big 12 Public school in Texas, not UT (Hometown university)
2.9 GPA (Economics major, minor in Chinese)
GPA will likely be my biggest hurdle. I come from a family, both immediate and extended, with no post-secondary education. After my time in the military, I wanted to change that trend. Early academic struggles were due to my unfamiliarity with college academics while balancing working 30 hours a week. I still work the same amount per week, but much better time management.

My GPA is weighed down from "C's" and "D's" in introductory courses like Pre-Calculus, Intro to Anthropology, and freshman English.
After learning how to approach college academics I saw a significant improvement in my performance.

I have made "A's" and "B's" in:
Managerial Economics
Intermediate and Advanced Chinese
Intermediate Macroeconomics/Microeconomics
Calculus
and most of the other Economic courses I have taken.

GMAT: 620(cannot recall split)
This was a testing of the waters, going in I fully intended on retaking a second time. I have been using TTP for quant and MGMAT for verbal. I scored a 660 on my most recent practice exam. I have another 5 weeks of extensive studying before I sit in mid-December. I am fully invested in making up for my GPA though the GMAT exam.

Work Experience and Leadership:
I feel this is the strength of my application. Early in my career I began to seperate myself from my peers. I was given a waiver to attend an enlisted leadership academy, I was too junior in rank and only 19 years old. I made the most of the opportunity and was 1 of only 4 honor graduates in a class of about 240. A year later, while deployed to Afghanistan, I was selected to instruct courses to Afghan police officers. Using an interpreter, I taught classes in marksmanship, first aid, and basic law enforcement tactics. While in Afghanistan I was nominated and approved for promotion to Sergeant, ahead of several peers senior to myself. I received multiple awards for accomplishments in leadership positions towards the backend of my career.

Post MBA goals:
Transition into consulting to develop expertise in a specific field, then transition into a management role after a few years.

I have my mind set on attending a T15 business school. I am applying to 5 of these programs this year, knowing there is a legitimate possibility I can strike out at all five. Should that happen, I will stay at my current university for a 2nd major in Chinese and reapply next year. If I do need to reapply I will target T15 again, but add a few programs like McCombs and Jones(Rice).

I am targeting schools that have a reputation of being military friendly, with the exception of Yale. I understand Yale is likely out of my league, but I feel culturally it is the best fit for me. I am applying to Kellogg, Yale, Tuck, Ross, and Johnson. Any advice would be appreciated!



Considering you have not graduated yet. I would recommend two programs for you that will provide support before your MBA and after. The first is MLT (Management Leadership for Tomorrow) who can help you prepare for your MBA applications. They have considerable resources and a proven track record of placing applicants into top B-schools with scholarships. They have a few different programs but the one I recommend is their one-year MBA prep where they help you prepare your essays, improve GMAT scores, network with skills, prepare for interviews and many other valuable resources that help you be a stand-out candidate.
The second program is the Consortium for Graduate Studies of Management that allows you to apply to six business schools at a significantly reduced cost. There is a common application for all of them which also greatly simplifies the process. Finally, they offer a fellowship to many of the participants which covers full tuition.

Waiting an extra year could make a huge difference in the quality of school you matriculate to and the amount of scholarships you receive. Best wishes.
