Hi,

I have recently taken GMAT and after 4 unsuccessful attempts to crack 700, I was finally able to do so. I finally got 710 (Q50, V38, IR 5). I am 33 yrs old and have 9 yrs of technology consulting experience in top Multinational firms and I am looking to bend my future career goals towards Management Consulting. I am targeting Fall of 2018 session and hence I am in for R2. I am interested in Full Time MBA from any of the prestigious colleges across the world. I am open for any geography (US, UK, APAC), but preferentially, I am looking at top 20 US colleges.

I am attaching my resume which describes my profile and career achievements briefly. I would like to have my profile evaluated and get a general high-level sense on my chances and guidance on how to better my submissions for R2.

I am eagerly looking for earnest responses here as I feel if I couldn't break through this year in an FT-MBA course, I would have to dump my plans for a full-time MBA and look into Executive MBA course offered by colleges, as my experience is tending towards higher range of average work experience of these colleges. I don't want to do an executive MBA as I don't feel an Executive MBA would get me the right depth and breadth that I am looking to achieve from an FT-MBA course.


P.S: Since I belong to a very competitive applicant pool (~ Technology Consulting, India ), do experts feel that I should retake GMAT and better my score or is the current score along with my profile present a strong case for selection at these schools?

Being an older applicant, you need to present a strong case for why you need a full-time MBA at this stage. You can read more on this here. Your GMAT score is a tad lower for your applicant pool, considering you’re applying to top-20 programs. It’s definitely not low, but then you’re competing with many others with similar background. Irrespective of whether you improve the score or not, write strong applications, thinking of ways in which your profile could be different from other applicants with similar backgrounds.

Hi,

You will find it difficult to break into the top-20 US at the current GMAT score level (as an Indian applicant).

You could attempt a few good European schools, and/or lower ranked American schools in R2. If you wish to discuss more, please get in touch with us through the link below. Also, please read throught his article on the application process for older applicants: http://mbaadmissions.augustacademy.in/mba-over-30/

Regards,
Karthik
