Hello Sir/Ma'am,
Hi @MBAaspirant1993, I am assuming maybe you were born in 1993... and I actually got my MBA from Kellogg in 1993 so we share that year- and maybe it is your destiny to get that MBA! Good for you for reaching out early! Let me review below.

GPA: 63.3% on a percentage scale Is this first class? and any idea of your rank within the class?

Work Experience: ~3.5 years (4+ years at the time of applying)

1. Analyst, Ernst and Young in Gurgaon (India)
Duration: June 2014 – June 2016 (2 years)

-Member of the Ethics and Integrity Due Diligence Team - worked on 70+ due diligence engagements spanning across various sectors over 2 yearsThe E&Y name is a known entity and will reflect well for you.

2. Co-Founder, Garment Manufacturing Company excellent entrepreneurial side experience

I would be highly grateful if you could guide me with the following queries:

1. Please evaluate my candidature for top 20 US schools as well as top 5 schools in Europe.I see all the top 20 and top 5 Europe as potential options. The key is now learning more about each program- what do you want to do post MBA? Where do you want to work? Focus on schools that offer the best resources for what you want to do. Some tips for getting to know schools from afar are here: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... ram-india/

2. Please suggest areas where I can improve my profile over the next year before I apply to schools in September 2018.The best thing to do- and of course since I am consultant I realize that I am biased- but I see that the clients I have that are willing to invest time PRE application- as it sounds like you are- can really present well by looking at their profile now. We offer an early advantage program where we do an audit of your profile- looking at where you are NOW on each metric and what you can do between now and applications to be stronger. It is about 5 hours of counselor time spread throughout the year- and my clients who did this in advance of applying STOOD out with more thoughtful insights in their career goals and submitted stronger applications. I'd love to explain more about this to you- reach out to us for a free consult at this link and ask to speak to Donna and I can explain more how it works. https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/
From what I see here- you have the building blocks - but I don't know how you present yourself in person- we assess this through skype and mock interview practice- and so I would say make sure you present professionally and communicate well and also do research now on WHAT is your post MBA goal- which schools have the strong recruiting relationships to help you get there?Best wishes and kudos to you for being on the ball to think about this ahead of time!
Thank you very much!
