Hi saikiran1003,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. I like that you published a research paper and have been recognized as a top performer. I see that you have also retaken the GMAT, and improved your score significantly. The challenges you will face with target schools, however, are your lower than average GPA and GMAT. Most of the schools on your list are reach schools. Goergia Tech's class profile, for example, has a median 3.6 GPA and GMAT Quant is in the 94th percentile range while verbal is in the 90th percentile range. UCLA's MS in Business Analytics class averages in the 92nd percentile overall GMAT and 3.5 GPA. A similar case is for the European schools.

That said, you have a competitive profile for HEC+Grande Ecole - Data Science and ESSEC+CentraleSupelec - Business Analytics. Be sure to spend some time developing your story and the reasons for a MAster's in Data Science and Business Analytics, respectively. While a data science degree, communicating your ambitions and goals is key in the application process. Be sure to spend some time there so you increase your chances.

Happy to continue the conversation. If interested, please click here to coordinate a free consultation.

Good luck!

Hi Sahapamela.

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. Overall, your profile looks in line with UCLA Anderson's class averages. That said, you should aim at a higher GMAT score. Securing admission to UCLA Anderson, however, will require more than average data points. You will need to be able to reflect on your accomplishments, have a clear post MSBA goal, and clearly outline how UCLA Anderson will help you reach that goal. It's not clear to me what your goal are, so you will need to spend some time developing a plan of action if you haven't done so already.

If you would like to continue the conversation, please reach out.

Good luck!
