Hello Everyone,

Indian, Male here. I just took my GMAT recently and scored a 740 -> Q48, V42, Still awaiting my AWA scores. :)

Acads/WorkEx:
CBSE school -> 88% in 10th, 84%in 12th
Engineer (Tier 1 college not named IIT/NIT) -> 7.1 CGPA
Currently working as an analytics consultant in a company that provides analytics services. Since my client is a Fortune 500 tech MNC, I interact with people from US,UK and AU on a regular basis. My role has a great mix of Business, Engineering and Data science where I act as a bridge between these 3 while providing actionable insights to improve the business (Similiar to a PM role,This is a big part of why i want to pursue an MBA). Although i've only worked for ~3 years, i act as the team lead which has allowed me to demonstrate leadership. Also, won employee of the year award once.

Extra curriculars:
School - Pupil leader, Basketball team captain (Have certificate proof)
University level Basketball player, Competed at inter-zones, which is similiar to NCAA in the USA albeit being a way less competitive league (No certificate proof)
Also, aspiring powerlifter and track athlete (High jump)

I'm looking to apply for the programs at ISB, NUS and NTU. Can someone tell me if these are realistic targets ? and If not, what I lack in my profile ?
Also, opinions on applying to some B-schools in the UK like Oxford Said, Cambridge Judge, HEC Paris, ESADE, IESE ? Are these feasible targets if i get a solid SOP/LOR ?

P.S: I'm new here. Any advice on improving my posts are appreciated :)

Thanks !

Hello Gauthamkailash

Most of the schools on your list seem feasible from a 'profile stats' point of view.
What that means is your quantitative credentials are good for these schools. What are these 'stats'? GMAT, Role, Years of Work ex UnderGrad school, GPA etc. (things that are easy to measure)
But admissions is not just 'quantitative', is it?
Feasibility will also depend on the depth of your work ex (namely career progress and achievements), involvement in extracurricular activities (enhances your diversity) and clear career goals (that should fit your profile as well as the profile of the B School.)
See if reading here and here helps.

Gautham,

Most of these schools- you are not ruled out. You will have 4 years of work experience by the time you join them, and your GMAT Score is on the good side as well. I think you should have a fair chance.

Please send your resume to Jatin@pythagurus.com , and let me have a closer look at your progression, and your extracurriculars .

You have not picked up any US Schools. Is it Uncle Trump? :) I think you can do better schools as well Gautham. Worst case scenario- you will get rejected. Go get rejected. That is okay. But I strongly believe that you can do better.

Share your resume. Let me see before I give a strong opinion.


Thanks, Jatin

Thanks for the responses.
And about not applying for US schools, it's due to personal reasons mainly. But yeah, shelling out a huge amount is a risk i can't afford to take, when things under the Trump admin have an added layer of uncertainty.

Hi Gautham,

Your profile looks good man! The GMAT is definitely good, the GPA looks average and the work experience - as you have explained- sounds competitive. We'll understand better if we see the details.

Your b-school selection is good. But its never my advise to apply to so many. I'd recommend you look deeper into each of these programs- specifically the curriculum, employment and the student composition. Select 5-7 b-schools based on the ones you like and see a fit and apply there. Build solid applications for fewer schools.

Feel free to share your resume with us. I'd e happy to answer your questions.
