I am an Indian female with an engineering background. I will be applying to B schools in US this year for a two year MBA program. I am looking for a profile evaluation so that I can find the best fit and shortlist schools that I have a chance of getting into. I hope to specialize in Operations/Supply Chain/Consulting. Please evaluate my profile for Rice.
GMAT: 720 (49Q/40V)
GPA: 3.63 (9.08/10)
Degree: B.Tech(Information Technology) from VIT University,Vellore
Experience: 2 years in an IT firm as a software developer ( 3 years till I join)
Extracurricular: I have some experience working as a volunteer for various events in college , serving as an NSS volunteer, etc. But I don't have any experience in leadership/managerial roles. Some experience in managing office events and display of good leadership qualities within the team.

Please evaluate my profile so I know if I should try for Rice or there is no chance of getting an admit at all ?

Your Profile is excellent, although Rice prefers IIT'ians i feel VIT should be right up there. Experience might be an issue but I'm sure your essays are gonna be strong..good luck!

You have a couple of things going for you
- A have a good GMAT score (more than the average at Rice)
- A good undergraduate GPA with a good college.
- Also the fact that although you belong to the IT group but being a female your chances of shining out become better.

Some things that you can improve on before applying.
- Rice really appreciates people who not only have shone in academics but in other aspects of life as well. Dive deep inside your life and pick out instances where you have done things apart from your academics. You still have a couple of months to go before the application cycle begins so try and do something in this time.
- Aim for a higher GMAT score to boost your chances of scholarship. Rice has historically been very generous on giving scholarships and if you want one try and get a 20-30 point rise in your score.
- Apply in R1 only - this year almost all internationals who have been admitted to Rice were picked in R1 only. In R2 hardly any international candidate was picked. Put your best foot forward in R1 only.
- Reach out to alumini and talk to them about your goals and whether Rice is a good fit for you. There are some very good schools in Supply change management that you also might want to consider besides Rice. (Infact Rice is not really that renowned for Supply/Chain)

Good luck with your application process !!!
