Hi there, and thanks for writing! What is your post-MBA goal and geography? This will help you narrow your target schools.

A couple of points to start:

- If I'm interpreting the below info correctly, it looks like you'd have about 8 years of total work experience pre-MBA? The average is about 3-7 years, so in that case you'll need to explain at the point of applying why NOW is the right time for an MBA. For candidates with a high number of work experience, AdComs question whether these applicants still need a full-time MBA, why they've waited, and are also concerned about recruiters (who tend to want to recruit those within a certain range of experience)
- While your work experience and community involvement seems solid, a higher GMAT could help your chances given that you're applying from such a heavily represented pool (and will offset your somewhat lower GPA, though the CFA certainly will boost your academic profile)

Hope that helps! :)

Hey,

I live in India
So I am only 25 years old.
Started working when I was 18, and it is mandatory for a student becoming a chartered accountant to intern under one for 3 years
so from 18 to 21, 3 years Audit experience is internship
The reason for my low gpa is that i was doing CA & CFA at the same time as my graduation. Can that be used in my essay?
The Indian Chartered Accountancy Course has a passing rate of only 7% per year, so needed my focus there too

Also similar to CFA, will me also being a CA boost my academic profile?

Post MBA goal would be to get into Strategy Consulting or IB
