Hi Daivat,

In my opinion, your GMAT score will be on the lower side for Kelley, but it would be a good score for Rice. Your work experience will also be more relevant at Rice ( i see you have posted your profile on the Rice thread as well).

feel free to reach out for a more indepth profile evaluation. you have put a great deal of emphasis here on your extra curricular achievements and slightly lesser on the work related achievements. We think the latter are more relevant from a b-school perspective and would therefore want to know more about them.

Hi alphacentria

Hello again. Healthcare and Analytics go well together at Kelley, and your profile is quite suitable. However, please target a GMAT of 700+ (720+ if possible) as competition at Kelley is fierce from international IT applicants.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed or to get in touch directly for a chat.

Hello again Sid5050

MBB opportunities would be somewhat limited, but they are certainly there at Kelley. Review your background vis-a-vis your goals and refine a bit. Your profile apart from that is pretty strong. Go ahead.

Looks quite decent for Kelley. You would need to scope out your goal a bit more, as it similar to what you are currently doing.
