Hello there!
Could you evaluate my profile?
I am a re-applicant having first applied in 2017. I will re-apply in 2018.
I will be 28 years old in 2018.
730 GMAT; 50 Quant, 40 Verbal, 5.5 AWA, 5 (52%) Integrated Reasoning
3.9 GPA in Masters from a Top 5 engineering schools in the US
8.x/10 GPA from a Top 10 engineering school in India
5 years Work Experience as an engineer: 4 years at a Tier-II company like Walmart/Etsy/eBay, and currently at a Tier-I: Microsoft
Volunteer Teacher ( 10 + hrs/week the past 4 years)
Yet another Brown Male
Future Goals: Transition into a Product Management role at one of the tech companies.

A) Do I stand any chance at the M-7(HBS, GSB, Wharton, Booth, Kellogg, Sloan)?
B) Should I re-take the GMAT?730 seems to be the norm these days and that 5 on IR isn't too helpful. :(
C) Anything else I can do to increase my chances

Thanks very much!

Hey there,
Great to hear from you!

So first of all, normally a 730 is good. Now for you, it might be a bit different, being "Yet another brown male" plus the fact of the expectation of an improvement since the last application. Will you have a shot at M7 with your current score? Yes. Will you have a better one with a higher score? Yes. :) Now you have to decide when and how and how much...

Now to really dig deep into your profile and chances I need a LOT more info from you! (and I invite you to fill out a form for a Free Consultation here: http://admissionado.com/free-consultati ... n=mba_blog)

But the short of it from what I can see with my current information is that you have a great profile, but a common one.
Which means:
- Apply to more schools
- Expand your range to Top20
- Write an amazing passionate and original application.

Do that, and you will get the best results possible.

And probably a good place to start is to send in your prior applications for a Ding review.

Best,
Jon

Thank you, Jon! Sucks to have to retake GMAT when you have already scored 730 :(
