Hello,

 

Kindly review my profile and share your valuable inputs. 

Profile: I completed my graduation in Fashion studies from one of the top 3 colleges in Asia in 2014 with a CGPA of 7.43. I have been working with the biggest apparel organization in the country since June 2014. Currently have a rich experience of 39 months.

 

Extra-curricular: I am a national level athlete and I am regularly involved in different sports.

Have also won national level quiz competitions. Have been involved with couple of NGOs during my college days.



I gave my third attempt of GMAT at the beginning of the week. Below are all my scores:
1st attempt : 680 (Q-50, V-30, IR-7, AWA - 4)
2nd attempt : 670 (Q-49, V-33, IR-7, AWA - 5)
3rd attempt : 700 (Q-50, V-34, IR-8, AWA- awaited).

Though i did manage to touch the psychological barrier of 700, I still feel I am 30 points shy of reaching my target score. I need your help in pursuing my MBA dreams. 

Below is the shortlist which I have done:

Location
1) US - Most preferred country for further education
2) Asia – ISB/NUS/NTU are the only preferred colleges for an Indian

Areas of interest : 1) General Management, 2) Marketing

I need your help in deciding which colleges I should apply.

 

I am targeting top 15 US B schools. So should I apply in Round 1 or give GMAT again and apply in Round 2 with a higher score?

As studying in my current job is becoming extremely tough, I am planning to switch my job and take a break of around a month between the jobs. 

 

Will it be okay if I plan my next GMAT attempt between a job switch?

Will a new job have any negative impact on my candidature?

Hello,

 Hi Yashkumar, I feel we are old friends now after being on the GMAT chat! Thanks for being on there today- let me look again below but we may have covered most of this already!

2) Asia – ISB/NUS/NTU are the only preferred colleges for an Indian

Areas of interest : 1) General Management, 2) Marketing

I need your help in deciding which colleges I should apply.
For the US in general management with marketing focus, I like Fuqua, Haas, Ross, UNC Kenan-Flagler, UT Austin, Wisconsin, maybe Foster
for stretch Wharton and Kellogg and Booth and GSB

 

I am targeting top 15 US B schools. So should I apply in Round 1 or give GMAT again and apply in Round 2 with a higher score? I think for most top 15 programs you are too close to R1 deadline to do it justice so I would retake and plan to do awesome job Round2 on overall application. And again for a great counseling firm look us up for a free consult: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/

As studying in my current job is becoming extremely tough, I am planning to switch my job and take a break of around a month between the jobs. I caution switching companies in the midst of applying. If you can switch roles ok

 

Will it be okay if I plan my next GMAT attempt between a job switch?

Will a new job have any negative impact on my candidature?

Thanks for your reply Donna. It was really nice getting in touch with you through the forum. I will concentrate on my next attempt of GMAT as of now. Will definitely get in touch with you around end of November when I am done with my exam. In the meantime I will start searching for a job which will fall in line with my overall plan.
