Hi,

ZS is a great company to work for, especially if you are applying for MBA, its well recognized.

I am a little concerned about your GMAT score, because Indians tend to have 700+ GMAT scores even for Kelley. Never these less, don't let this be a show stopper- take your chance (unless you are applying to several schools and can retake GMAt for R2 deadlines). The application will have to be top notch.

Are you doing IT stuff at ZS or you are in consulting (chance to differentiate yourself)

Hi Rahul,

You have a good profile. The GMAT at 750 is excellent and will be valued by Kelley.
Your have not given much details about your work experience, so you will have to tell me how has your career progress been? what impact have you made? Have you led teams?

You will be among the older applicants so addressing clear career goals, why they need an MBA and why is now the right time will be super important for a successful application.Kelley asks for an alternate career goal, should your first choice not materialize. For an older applicant, this question is all the more important, as the admissions would like to see flexibility in your career goals.

Also, you have mentioned that you are yet to take the TOEFL. If you meet this criterion, you will qualify for a waiver: applicants who have earned an undergraduate or post-graduate degree from an institution in which English was the language of instruction.
