Hi, I'm Karthik! Here are my stats, would really appreciate an evaluation:

Nationality: Indian
GMAT: 750 (Q50, V42)
Undergrad: Non-IIT, Top 25 engineering school
Undergraduate GPA: 3.6
Current work ex: 48 months - Consulting (19 months), Pharma (29 months)

I worked in a leading multinational pharma consulting firm as an associate for 19 months. International work ex was limited to working with American clients and colleagues - no travel. President of the toastmasters club and launched training programs for new hires. Not much to write about work, I'd left before getting promoted. Received an award for gamifying the toastmasters program
I then moved to one of the largest multinational pharmacos in a commercial excellence role (SFE). Managed multiple projects across functions: sales force rationalization, strategy roadmaps, capability building roadmaps, gamification, restructuring businesses, implementing innovative business models, go to market implementation - many of these have had business impact in $MM or equivalent. Have been awarded 3 times in the last 2 years for 3 different projects. Youngest member of team, colleagues are MBAs and received a fast track promotion in 2y against firm average of 3y.

Extra Curriculars:
President of Toastmasters club
Watch a lot of movies (>300 last year alone)
Travelling - have traveled to ~10 countries, and to multiple altitude regions of the Himalayas in the last 3 years
One helluva storyteller :)

Target Schools: Kellogg, Booth, Wharton, INSEAD

Short term goal: Top tier consulting firm

Can't wait to hear!

Hi karthikeyanchellappa, thanks for reaching out Karthik and I will address your profile below.

Current work ex: 48 months - Consulting (19 months), Pharma (29 months)Very impressive stats Karthik! Kudos just for your hard work and great profile just from this!

I worked in a leading multinational pharma consulting firm as an associate for 19 months. International work ex was limited to working with American clients and colleagues - no travel. President of the toastmasters club and launched training programs for new hires. Not much to write about work, I'd left before getting promoted. Received an award for gamifying the toastmasters programas you frame "why" you left- focus on the new opportunity- would have been nice to be promoted here- but water under the bridge- just state why you left in a positive light regardless of what happened as you present best in this light of moving to look forward to new opportunities- not leaving something "bad" which just never comes out well
I then moved to one of the largest multinational pharmacos in a commercial excellence role (SFE). Managed multiple projects across functions: sales force rationalization, strategy roadmaps, capability building roadmaps, gamification, restructuring businesses, implementing innovative business models, go to market implementation - many of these have had business impact in $MM or equivalent.

Youngest member of team, colleagues are MBAs and received a fast track promotion in 2y against firm average of 3y.great to see the promotion here! That is helpful.

One helluva storyteller :) That may come out in how well you approach essays!

Target Schools: Kellogg, Booth, Wharton, INSEAD I think all these are great schools for you to look at-
all are competitive so hard to say any are "targets" for anyone- but I think you have good odds there- we do have some great counselors with experience helping people get into all these programs and I think you having some guidance in this process could really help you do your best work on the applications and that could really help. We'd love to do a free consult with you to explain how we can help- link for that is here:https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com/admissions/business-school-admissions-consulting-gmat-club-visitor/

and also would like you give you some free resources from our newsletter and you can sign up for that here: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... dmissions/

And also for some tips on the school essays- here are some links: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... mba-essay/
