Hi!

I am planning on applying to the MIM Programs at some of the top 10 B-Schools. My profile is as follows.

I have a 8.0 GPA in my Bachelor's degree. I completed my Bachelor's in Botany, Chemistry, and Zoology. At College I also held leadership positions and worked on managing events and cultural fests. I headed the student club of the Botany department and was the editor in chief of the newsletter.

Following that, I worked for 14 months at an MNC in the healthcare industry.

At this time, I wanted to pursue business opportunities and learn more about that field, so I pursued a gap year during which time I completed a course in Digital Marketing and Social Media Marketing. In addition, I worked for two months abroad as a business development executive. I have continued to work as a freelance digital marketer and am also going to complete the basic French Proficiency Test.

I have volunteer and internship experience from the past including but not limited to the business and the healthcare domains.

I will be attempting my GMAT next month and would like to evaluate my chances based on my profile, considering I do well on the GMAT.

Hi swethachodavarpu,
Assuming you can hit at least a 700 on the GMAT (and the higher the better) you will have a good shot at these schools! You're getting a little bit on the upper end of work experience since you've got more than a year, but given your non-traditional background you still be able to make a strong argument for why you need the MiM. When you have too much experience they start to worry that you no longer need the degree. Good luck to you!

Hi aartisaboo,
I'm assuming you're talking about MiM programs rather than MBA programs? For MBA programs, you'll need 3-5 years of work experience to be considered. If you're targeting MiMs, unfortunately it's going to be quite tough to get into a top program with only a 650 GMAT, especially if you by chance are an Indian male (which is an overrepresented demographic among applicants & also one that tends to have high GMAT scores). Ideally you'll want to hit at least a 700 to be competitive at a top school & a 720 would be ideal if you are an Indian male. Any chance you can do some additional studying & improve that GMAT score?
