Please evaluate my profile. Here's a summary:

Nationality: Indian
Gender: Male
Age: 29

Institution: BITS Pilani, India
GPA: 6.87/10

GMAT: 720
Q: 49 | V: 38 | IR: 6 | AWA: NA yet

Work experience:
WE: 86 months
Industry: Marketing & Advertising
I have been working towards building my career in digital marketing.
I started my career with a digital marketing agency catering to some of the biggest clients across India and I was handling some of their larger portfolios. Spent about 4 years there, handled a team of 7-8 individuals at any point of time and advertising spends of $10mn+ monthly and scooped up 3 promotions during my time there.
Spent a year at a travel experience aggregator with operations across US, EU & Middle East. Led their digital marketing team and build and improved revenue streams across these regions. Got promoted once during my time there.
Moved to one of the largest OTT Video platform in India to lead their digital marketing efforts and have been working with them for the past 2 years. Have consistently been crucial to the growth of the platforms and part of the core marketing team. Lined up for promotion this year.
Awarded by org twice for internal accomplishments.
During my tenure at all 3 firms, I have directly worked with Business Heads and CEOs. Will have LORs from the relevant folks to back up for it.

Extracurricular activities (highlight notable undergraduate and post-undergraduate ones):
UG: Was involved organizing core events at college level sports and cultural fests
Avid Swimmer and Tennis player
Haven’t been involved in much beyond the above.

Post-MBA goals:
I have been in the marketing domain for the past 7 years and wish to continue doing so. The need for MBA arises to give a bump up to my career path and move to senior leadership roles. Wish to work for global firms and gain international exposure.

Target schools: INSEAD(FR/S), NYU Stern, Cornell, Judge, HEC, NUS, NTU, IE Spain.

What are my chances at the above schools?
I understand that my GPA is on the lower side. How would you suggest I make up for it?
Any other schools that you’d recommend I look at?

Thank you!

Hi tanuj20,

Thank you very much for your post. Given that we are in the midst of Round 1 deadline season (Sep 3 to Oct 15), we would be able to cover your questions more efficiently, more effectively, and with greater nuance and specificity by way of a Free Consultation.

(Even outside of deadline season, a Free Consultation is much more detailed and helpful than a static response. We can cover a lot more ground that way and have a back-and-forth conversation, during which you'd have the chance to ask all sorts of follow-up questions.)

I would be more than happy to chat with you in the coming days. If that sounds appealing to you, please feel free to sign up for a Free Consultation via this link: I hope we have the opportunity to speak soon!

Best Regards,
Greg Guglielmo

For serious inquiries, I am happy to connect you with former clients so you can hear about their experiences.
