I took the GMAT recently and got 700 ( Q51(98%) , V 31( 60%)). The AWA sore is 5.5 and IR score is 7.

My profile summary is as follows:


I have done my engineering from IIT Bombay which is one of the premiere technical institutes in the world. I have a B.TECH. + M.TECH. degree from IIT . I also topped my batch receiving a silver medal at graduation in 2011 with a CGPA of 9.59/10. My other academics, 10th and 12th standard are decent enough in the 85% range.


I got placed in American Express India from campus in its Risk Management division as Business Analyst. Though I was not in a managerial role, I was part of a team that built financial models for company's US and International Markets. I was in American Express for 21 months. I left the job to take up a different role in a mildly large business firm where I work today as assistant to the MD.The company is primary involved in processing and trading Agro based commodities. I assist the MD in all the decision making such as in acquiring a new company or setting a new show room for the company's furniture division.

I am applying for 2014 entry into b-school. I will have some 3 years of work-ex by then.

Extra-curricular activities:

I have been and am also currently involved with various non-profit organizations and NGOs that do social work. I assist in their education and women empowerment related initiatives. In my new job, I have been able to particularly involve myself more with these activities which I have a passion for.
In school as well as college, I was involved in many social and cultural activities.


I like writing about my experiences. Occasionally, read mystery novels and play cricket . I am an avid cricket fan. I pay and watch the sport.


1) I am thinking of applying to top US b schools(Harvard, Stanford,Wharton,etc) and LBS. I have heard that these b-schools have a mild guideline of 80/80 split in verbal and quant. But, can a good AWA score of 5.5 and other factors like strong academics make up for the low verbal score? Should I apply to these top schools or there is a no chance of getting in with these scores?

2) Which school/schools might be more suitable to my profile?

3) I will be applying in Round 2. Is there a significant disadvantage compared to Round 1?

4) Does the GMAT score play a role in getting scholarships/loans for the MBA program? Does the score play a role in placements too?

I would really like to hear from your side. Thanks.
