I need some help in evaluating my profile. Thanks a lot, in advance, for taking time to respond. Your input would be extremely valuable to me.

Here's my brief profile:

GMAT : 4 attempts {700(49q/35v), 700(50q,34v), 660(49q/32v), 710(48q,38v)}

Experience & Achievements:
Employed @ Sandisk Corporation in California, USA as a Engineering Manager.
Some significant achievements include:
- Led a 52 member team to recover operations in Japan post the 2011 earthquake & Tsunami
- Spearheaded the bring-up and ramp of the latest 8 billion USD production plant in Japan
- Significant international cross-functional experience - Work with international teams based in China, Japan and Israel for 80% of my time. Travel internationally as frequently as once every month.

Extra-curricula activities:

Post MBA goals:

Based on my above profile- what do you think are my chances of getting into a top MBA program. The schools that I am particularly interested in are:
MIT SLoan, Wharton, Kellogg, INSEAD, and LBS.
Would i have better chances if I re-take my GMAT? Please mind, I have already taken the test 4 times.
Also, please recommend some safe schools for me

Hi kailashbhat,

Thanks for posting. For your GMAT, you do have a strong score. Our thoughts are if you believe you can improve your score by 30+ points, it may be worth taking the test again, however your time may be better spent on other areas of your application.

For your candidacy, I recommend you read this case study of an Indian engineer who was accepted into a top MBA program. It should provide insight into your candidacy: http://www.stacyblackman.com/comprehens ... ies/case2/

If you'd like, we also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
