Hi,

Thanks for the effort you guys have put in here to help people out with the ever complicated MBA admissions parameters.
My profile is thus:
27 yr male Indian
Have a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering with CGPA of 6.9/10
5 yrs WE – split across 3 companies

Built and ran a Startup focused on Event Management while doing Undergraduate studies in college. Had to shut it down shortly after graduation due to lack of interest from the partners and failure to see a long term scalability without offsetting the risks.

The last 2 companies where I have worked/working are:
Snapdeal -E-Commerce startup in India, direct competitor of Amazon in the country.
I was a Key Account Manager(seller management and growth),handling two South Indian States. Won many accolades for performance along the way.

OYO -largest hotel chain in India, operates in upto 5 countries, not so dissimilar to how UBER operates; direct competitor of AirBnB in the country.
Joined in an IC role to launch one of the Southern states of India from scratch. Moved up to City head within a year and is currently handling a team size > 10, overseeing business growth and also PnL. The company is on its way to being a Unicorn from India (within this year).

Extra currilcuars:
Coordinator for 3 separate TEDx Events in the State – One of them was the first ever to happen in the State
Core member of an NGO (while in college – 2.5 yrs) contributing to girl child education
Was in various coordination committees (academic and otherwise) right from school through college.
GMAT score of 650 (Q47,V33,IR6,AWA5.5).
The idea behind doing an MBA is to rotate my verticals to Operations Management (maybe even SCM) and to get placed internationally to gain enough experience of the markets to maybe start something of my own in the future.

The desire is to get into one of the top MBA colleges in Canada, seeing that US is out of the equation with the low GMAT (or is it?). Im a bit deflated with the GMAT being this low, but it is too late to write again to see a significant change in the result and still make it for R1s for ’19.
Colleges on the wishlist:
Rotman
HEC Montreal
CEIBS
HKUST
NUS, Nanyang

Kindly evaluate my profile for the same. TIA.

Hi there - thanks for writing! Looks like you have some great work experience and good extracurriculars.

Regarding GMAT - I do think it would significantly improve your chances if you got to 700+. Given how very competitive things are for Indian applicants at all well-known programs, it's worth another try, even if that means applying in R2 instead. Hope that helps!

Hi,
Thanks a lot for the response Nisha.
Regarding the GMAT, I was normally trending at 630-650 while taking mocks and to be honest with all the chaos of test day I was not expecting this score.
I have a feeling that to improve my score to 700, Ill need to do a lot of work and time.
But I hear you and will work towards ways to fastback improvement.

Thank you!
