Hello :)
Pl help me evaluate my profile.

GMAT score : 730 Q50 and V38
Well IR : 8
AWA : 4 :(

So heres my back-ground:
Female, Engineer, NON-IT, Indian, 23 years old
Under grad GPA : 9.1 (scale of 10)
Overall good academic performance. (High school : 85%, Secondary school: 92%)

I am in Automobile(Commercial vehicles) sales (as Deputy Manager) since two years and would have slightly less than 3 years by matriculation.I would spend the next year in Brand management.

Leadership experience:
In college,I was part of a small team that developed and ran an in-campus enterprise (food,travel desk,laundry etc.) for a year.During which span we handled head to toe of the whole business: Managing vendors,accounting, reducing tat for all services, quality control etc.
Other small-time college event organising experiences.
Work-wise: Handled two dealer operations and sales in a metro (Bangalore)

Others: Good management electives during college.Internship at ABB for 5 months.Certified artist.Classical dancer trained for 7 years.

Preferred future career: Short term- Corporate Strategy (preferably Automobile sector) , Long Term(say 10 years post MBA) : Enterprenuership

I wish to apply for Class of 2017.
And the wishlist is long and obvious: H/S/W and CBS, Kellogg, MIT,Booth.

Where do I have strong chances given my profile? Which other "safe" schools to which I should apply?
Too young is it a disadvantage?
:roll: Low GMAT score? Is the low IR a major cause of worry, it being the 21st percentile, I am quite shocked as I am good at writing, given my toefl score,high school english etc.

Thanks in advance!

you have several advantages in your profile. As a female international student but non-Indian, you are in a much smaller applicant pool, which is a clear advantage, especially when you add in the high GMAT (schools are mostly concerned with your quant score, and at 50 you are in great shape). Don't worry about IR or AWA--those scores do not really mean much yet to the adcoms--perhaps they will weigh in more substantially in the future? Being a manager is an advantage as well, and actually makes your youth more attractive. Schools do not have a bias against high achieving young folk, in fact, it's just the opposite. Recruiters like young MBAs, and therefore schools like young go-getters who will snag a job quickly after graduation. So many older applicants are trying to use the MBA to reset their career or to make up for some mis-steps and get them back on track, which schools frown upon. They would rather have a young, dynamic achiever from the outset. Maturity is always a concern for younger applicants, but in your case, with a solid vision for what you want to do after you graduate and also a vision which ties well into your prior experience, you will be perceived as mature and truly having something to offer. Let us know if we can help you pull it all together.
