Hi Team:

Please evaluate my profile and provide me with critical feedback.
Work experience: 4 years, of which 6 months in consulting (erstwhile Monitor) and rest in Test & Measurement B2B Sales (business development role with a revenue target)
GMAT: 750 (Q:50, V:41), AWA: 4, IR: 8, TOEFL: 112
Extra curricular: very active in the start-up circle: regular interactions with technology start-ups, guiding tech start-ups to break-even
Education: B.E. from a top-10 engineering institution in India (non IIT)...scholarship and diverse volunteer experience, CGPA aroung 3.6-3.7

My target schools are: Tuck, Kellogg, Duke, Cornell, Yale, Darden

A nagging query I have is: as a non-native speaker how do I mitigate this AWA score? should I give GMAT again? and whether this score is a deal-breaker at my target schools. This is a riding concern as I received a Fuqua ding earlier and have been evaluating/introspecting the reasons for that ding.

Your thoughts/insights would be really appreciated

thanks and regards

Hey Ghorkalyug

I got good news and bad news for you and they are one and the same: It's probably not the AMA. Which is good cuse it mean you don't have to think about taking the GMAT again, but maybe bad, cause you still need to figure out what went wrong.

Your profile, from the brief few lines you wrote here seems pretty good. So the question is: What happened with Fuqua? And proably before you move foward you should try and identify the weak points/ problems in your profile and last application. Get someone (preferably a professional, but a freind is fantastic too) to review your essays and give you feedback.

And just keep on trucking! With those great stats you will make it in!
