Hi,

I wrote my second gmat and got a score of 720 ( Q49, Verbal 38, IR 8, AWA - 4.5)

10th - 90.2 ( 3rd rank in class )
12th - 88.8 ( class topper )
BTech - Computer Science ( BIT Mesra, 2011-15, GPA: 8.2/10)

Work Exp: Developer Analyst in Goldman Sachs ( 2015 june - present ) - almost 2.5 years as of now.
>> I have been working on business side facing teams but my work mostly involved software development.
>> Lead a team of 30 employees for a day to organize an event at an NGO.
>> Rated 'Outstanding' for two consecutive years by peers.
>> Organised training for juniors.

International Exposure: Was part of a 2 months training program in New York HQ of Goldman Sachs where I interacted with senior people and colleagues from different region like London, Singapore, Tokyo, etc.
Extra Curriculum:
>> Collected more than Rs. 80,000 for Oxfam (Charity organisation) and will walk 100kms in 30 hours for it.
>> Reached finals of Impact fund where I pitched for my chosen NGO infront of a panel of MDs. If won, my NGO will get a grant of (20,000$-50,000$$)
>> Marathon runner ( ran 21km marathon in 1 hours 30 mins)
>> Singer (my song was viewed 1Lakh times on youtube)
>> Won intern school tennis competition once.
>> Won a free style Ganga Marathon, where one had to swim 3kms in Ganga river.
>> Part of SEEDS asia ( volunteer work )

I am still thinking if I should apply to US bschools because of the H1-B VISA problem and the risks involved. But if I apply, I would like to apply to these bschools next year:

1) Harvard,
2) Wharton,
3) Chicago Booth,
4) Yale,
5) NYU Stern
6) Cornell,
7) Tuck
8) Darden,
9) Ross,

Europe
10) INSEAD,
11) HEC Paris,

I have some time till I apply next year. I want to pursue career in consulting/finance. Being an IT Male engineer, I was thinking if I should focus on writing gmat once again or I should work on things which will help me later in career like (switching to some consult, Writing exams like CFA, FRM)??

Thanks for sharing your profile. You have a list of some of the top schools in the US. With that comes tons of competition. Your current profile will keep you of range for your top 5 programs and potentially the others as well. I would aim for at least a 740 to get in the discussion at schools on your list given their competitiveness and that of your overrepresented profile
