30 year Indian Male
GMAT: 760 (51Q, 41V)
GPA: Undergraduate - 61.5% from a leading Indian Engineering school (non-IIT)
Post-grad - 2.7/4 from MICA, Asia's leading Communications school

Work Experience:
-Currently employed in a Strategy role by one of India's largest media networks, managing a team of 4 people. Promoted to the Senior Manager level in three months ago (July 2017).
-Was previous employed in a strategy role for one of India's leading General Entertainment Channels, the Indian arm of a multi-national American media giant

-Theatre - Director for grad college theatre group. Directed a two-hour, ticketed English play at the prestigious Natrani Theatre in Ahmedabad
-Writing - Founder of college magazine in undergrad. Have written numerous short stories and currently working on my first novel
-Headed the Media & PR verticals for the annual brand management festival at grad school.

My career goal is to head the Asia Pacific business for a Tech/Media company such as Amazon, Netflix, Google etc.

Short term goal would be to work in the Strategy/Business Development/Partnerships team for such an organisation in UK/US.

Schools (no order):
Cambridge Judge
Oxford Said
UCLA Anderson
NYU Stern

Questions - My GPA in both my undergrad and Masters is comparatively low, especially for an Indian student, but I do have an above-average GMAT. Compared to the average Indian applicant, my work experience is different, both in terms of role and industry, but with a strong presence of quant work and working closely with senior management. Also, I have a good extra-curricular record, although slightly tilted to the creative side and mostly during post-graduation.

Given the above, do I have a realistic chance at the schools I'm targetting? Should I be considering other schools given my profile?

Thanks for reaching out to us! We're happy to help you start your MBA journey. However, we are in the process of relaunching our forum with a new format and will not be able to respond to requests until that process is completed. We will no longer be providing straight profile reviews because at the end of the day, your competitiveness at different schools relies on more than just a few stats or data points; we think a conversation is a much better way to provide that feedback and help you think through your strengths and development areas. We provide a free 30 minute consultation for that reason. As such, our new forum will focus more on the specific and burning questions that you may have for our expert team that can help you as well as others who are reading these posts. More detail to come.

If you reached out for the 2017-2018 application season and we did not get to your question, we sincerely apologize. Due to overwhelming demand, we reached full capacity and completely sold-out well in advance of the deadlines and stopped taking new consultations or profile evaluation requests so that we could focus on ensuring that our clients had the best possible support during the process. We're hopeful that your questions were answered elsewhere on the site, and we wish you best of luck for application success!
