I am looking forward to pursue MBA from top 10 schools. Presently I am working with Big4 Consulting in New Delhi, India as Principal Consultant/Manager and will be taking GMAT in September 2011.I am sharing a brief about my profile and I am looking for the feedback and GMAT score range which will help me in getting a shot at Ivy League.Target schools are LBS,INSEAD,Harvard,Stanford,Columbia and Tuck.

I have done B.Tech from NIT Trichy (CGPA 6.71/10) and worked with IBM Global Business Services before joining PwC Consulting. With close to 6 years of work experience, I have led several teams in IBM as well as PwC Consulting to deliver some of the complex assignments in India, USA, Kurdistan, Oman and Bangladesh.

As part my responsibilities, in the very beginning of my career itself I got an opportunity to work with senior leadership team of IBM Global Business Services to deliver a project from scratch which is helping in efficient management of more than 80000 employees.

In PwC Consulting I have been awarded two out of turn promotions and I am one of the youngest Managers working in the organization. Reporting directly to the Partner and global leader of Government transformation team I have traveled across India and some other developing countries to support senior most officials in high impact initiatives.

As a student I was co-founder of a technical festival which is one of the largest festivals in India as on date and has got a mention in Guinness Book of World Records as well. As a core team member of alumni association I am part of founding team of two big regional chapters of association and have organized several events. I did get recommendation letter from Director of Institute to pursue higher studies in management in 2005 when i graduated.

Hello meauhere, thanks for your question.

I think your GPA, which equates to about a 2.7 might be a challenge for top programs. Was there an extenuating circumstance that accounts for that? If so, I would recommend explaining that in the optional essay or, better yet, referencing a better analogue for your academic potential.

Your work experience seems strong. If you can speak to moments where you truly led – influenced people and organizations, drove results, took initiative – that could move the needle.

In terms of extracurriculars, I think only your post-college experience would matter much – unless it is truly extraordinary.

You’ve not mentioned post-MBA goals. You will need to paint a logical picture that ties together your past and current experience with your future goals. And, to the degree that your desired future path requires an MBA, the better!

In terms of the GMAT, you come from an overrepresented demographic that scores disproportionately high on the exam. Typically, scoring a 700 with more than 80% on verbal and quantitative is sufficient for applicants, but obtaining even that score would not do as much for you as it would otherwise. With your lower GPA, I think you’ll have to shoot higher than that.

Best of luck,

Brian Eng
