Hello,

Request you to evaluate my profile. (planning to apply next year)

Indian, Male
Age : 28
Work Ex : 7.5 years (8.5 yrs at the time of application)
Undergrad in Mechanical Engg : 70 / 100 % (GPA roughly 3.49)
GMAT 1 : 520 (Q44 V 17 AWA 4 IR 6) (Mar 2013)
GMAT 2 : 530 (Q44 V 22 AWA 4.5 IR 6) (Oct 2013)
GMAT 3 : 710 (Q48 V 40 AWA 5 IR 2) (Jul 2017)


Work Experience :
I worked with L&T Hydrocarbon engineering, which is a EPC (Engineering Procurement Construction) contractor for Onshore, Offshore and Subsea Oil and Gas Projects.
Now working with a Greek Software development firm : BETA CAE SYSTEMS S.A. who wants to enter into O&G field.

L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering : Engineering and Design (5 years) :
- only graduate engineer in R&D department. Was selected based on my interest towards technical stuff (rest all are Masters and Phds from IITs )
- worked on problem solving, troubleshooting, root cause analysis and capability development for Oil and Gas domain (for eg : a 20000 Ton Jacket tilted in Indian ocean. Had to provide solutions to lift the jacket safely in 2 weeks. Performed such 6-7 assignments during the tenure) (Used mechanical design related software such assignements)
- awarded 3 awards ( intra company level )for exceptional work in some of the critical assignments, which otherwise would have lead to huge liquidity damage for company.
- lead team of 3-4 engineers

L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering : Proposal Management (2 years) :
- worked on international proposals (bid values : 200 million to 1 billion). I was looking after mechanical domain (5 to 15 million)

BETA CAE SYSTEMS S.A. : 6+ months (Company turn over : 100 M USD)
- Greece based company has varied product portfolio of softwares, specially build for Automobile and Aerospace companies
- The company wants to enter into Oil and Gas, Nuclear domain
- Working as Presales Manager and Technical Specialist (dual role) to expand business in mentioned domains
- Handling accounts of major automobile giants for technical support ( Tata Motors, mercedes India, Nissan India etc)
- Cracked deal with major O&G client (this will ensure revenue of value INR 1 Crore (150000 USD) per year)

Extra Curricular Activities :
Taught maths to underprivileged kids for 2 years ( all of my kids cleared 10th exam recently) and trained more than 20 volunteers

-Worked with NGO that arranges sky gazing shows and spreads knowledge about astronomy in India
POST MBA Goal : would like to work in Technology Consulting industry.

My biggest worry is low IR score. Kindly suggest if I should go ahead with current GMAT score or should give another try to improve IR.
Target Schools :
1. Indian School of Business
2. IIM A
3. Foster
4. McCombs
5. Mays
6. Kelley school of business
7. IIM B
8. IIM C

Thanks in advance,

Hi askul2389,
1) Overall good profile.
2) Though you have a Mech Engg UG, you still fall in the extremely competitive "Indian Male" category, and I would have liked to see your GMAT touch closer to 740.
3) Within your targets, ISB interviews grill an immense lot, and would require a deeper analysis before I can say whether you should take the risk, I believe Foster & Mays form safety schools.
4) Along with Kelley & McCombs, I would also encourage you to include Tepper & Rotman.
5) Within IIMs (A, B & C), you have a decent chance. The strength of your story however, will matter immensely, as will your interviewing.

Please feel free to contact for further details. PM me your resume and let me know the times you are available.
