Hi VeritasPrepDoozie! I see that you are very responsive to profile evaluation requests! I hope you spare some time for evaluating mine as well.

Nationality: Indian

Undergraduation: Mechanical Engineering from JNTU (top 10 universities, non-IIT), GPA: 3.90/5 ; Revived and headed the Literature club at college apart from active participation in Tech fests. Interned at Indian Railways, submitting 3 research projects based on Computational Fluid Dynamics and Design & Engineering; Also interned at a Small Scale Enterprise to submit an original project work as part of course curriculum (dealing with new moulding techniques for automobile parts).

Professional Work Experience: Business Analyst to Product Owner to Analytics Consulting in IT (4 years)- at Indian IT Majors- Infosys & Cognizant; R&D role in Computational Fluid Dynamics at Fiat Chrysler (2 years). I have pursued my career in line with my entrepreneurial interests-combining product/software development and Predictive Analytics for business decisions; leveraging software development and Agile practices and combining it with Automobile/Commuter systems for efficient design and development. Certifications include Scrum Certified Product Owner; ISTQB Foundation Level Certified Quality Analyst.

Leadership experience: Leading high performing teams at offshore to deliver on-time product increments in Agile/DevOps environments, by implementing DevOps and Shift-Left levers, leading to savings of 100k (pounds). Establishing TCOE at offshore through preparation of Test Strategy, Test and Resource Estimation, defining and measuring KPIs for automation projects, leading to 30% reduction in test times, 35% cost reduction and containing high severity defect leakage to 2%.

Extra Curriculars include being part of CSR initiatives and active contribution to newsletters at Fiat Chrysler; Being part of Toastmasters and ILI (infosys Leadership Institute) at Infosys; Active participation in Tech Hackathon and Innovation challenges at Cognizant.

MBA Target Schools: NYU Stern, CMU Tepper, Ross, Haas, Chicago Booth.

Post MBA Plans: To work with M/B/B as a Strategy and Leadership consultant for 3-5 years and then transition to leadership role or start up an own venture.

Please let me know my chances at intended schools, especially Booth and Stretch schools.

Thank You!

Thanks for sharing your profile. I think Tepper is the school that is most in range for you. Your GMAT, particularly as an Indian applicant will make some of the other schools on your list a bit tougher, none are completely out of the realm of possibility but certainly an uphill battle for you

Hi VeritasPrepDozie! Thank you for your quick response.

Thank you for the analysis. It does seem to confirm my worst suspicions that getting into target schools will be an uphill task.
