Hi,

Could you please evaluate my profile and gauge my chances at Melbourne Business School? I am also looking for some information on how the scholarships work at MBS and what are the chances of securing an interview with top Management Consulting firms with my GMAT score.

I understand that the big consulting firms do not consider candidates with a GMAT score <700. Is this true? I am planning to give another exam next month and my target score is 700+.

Profile:
Female, Age 32, Mother of 2 (3yr & 1yr old)
Australian Citizen (India born)

Education:
10th – 79.5%
12th - Diploma/Polytechnic – 76.27%
Graduation – B.E in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering from AMIETE – 6.56 GPA
GMAT – 670 (Q45,V37,IR6,AWA5)

Work Experience:
14 years of extensive experience in managing IT Infrastructure. I have attached my LinkedIn URL for your reference - http://www.linkedin.com/in/aparnarallabhandi

Extra- Curricular:
Worked as a teacher and a helper for a non-profit school for 7 years from 2005-2012.

Post MBA goals:
I want to join Management Consulting preferably Technology Management Consulting (given my experience in the IT) after completing my MBA.

Thank you in advance for all your help!

Cheers,
Aparna

Hi Aparna,

You have a good overall profile. I think it's a tough journey you've signed on for. It will be a challenge for you to pursue an MBA with a family. It is good that you have chosen Melbourne Business School as it is a 1 year course. But MBS is a tough one to get in. It's average GMAT score is 705. Now you may get some concessions for gender diversity, being a local and no.of years of work ex. So you may be able to get in but if you want to be sure get a 700.
I have heard that Mckinsey does look at your GMAT scores but this theory is unsubstantiated. It will be better if you approach current/ past students of MBS to ask them of the recruitment process of consulting firms. I hope this helps. Let me know if you need any other help.

Best,

Hi Deep,

Thank you for your reply.

I am trying to reach out to MBS Alumini and gather more information on how the recruitment process works with regards to consulting firms. I hope I don't have to sit for another attempt :-). I will do the exam again if I have to, but if my concern is unfounded, I can better apply my time in preparing the application and the interview call.

Cheers,
Aparna

True. And you can also look at AGSM or Monash.
