Hi John @ Admissionado! I see that you are very responsive to profile evaluation requests! I hope you spare some time for evaluating mine as well.

Nationality: Indian
Age: 29
Female
GMAT: 700 (Q-43, V-42, IR-7, AWA-6.0)

Undergraduation: Mechanical Engineering from JNTU (top 10 universities, non-IIT), GPA: 3.90/5 ; Revived and headed the Literature club at college apart from active participation in Tech fests. Interned at Indian Railways, submitting 3 research projects based on Computational Fluid Dynamics and Design & Engineering; Also interned at a Small Scale Enterprise to submit an original project work as part of course curriculum (dealing with new moulding techniques for automobile parts).

Professional Work Experience: Business Analyst to Product Owner to Analytics Consulting in IT (4 years)- at Indian IT Majors- Infosys & Cognizant; R&D role in Computational Fluid Dynamics at Fiat Chrysler (2 years). I have pursued my career in line with my entrepreneurial interests-combining product/software development and Predictive Analytics for business decisions; leveraging software development and Agile practices and combining it with Automobile/Commuter systems for efficient design and development. Certifications include Scrum Certified Product Owner; ISTQB Foundation Level Certified Quality Analyst.

Leadership experience: Leading high performing teams at offshore to deliver on-time product increments in Agile/DevOps environments, by implementing DevOps and Shift-Left levers, leading to savings of 100k (pounds). Establishing TCOE at offshore through preparation of Test Strategy, Test and Resource Estimation, defining and measuring KPIs for automation projects, leading to 30% reduction in test times, 35% cost reduction and containing high severity defect leakage to 2%.

Extra Curriculars include being part of CSR initiatives and active contribution to newsletters at Fiat Chrysler; Being part of Toastmasters and ILI (infosys Leadership Institute) at Infosys; Active participation in Tech Hackathon and Innovation challenges at Cognizant.

MBA Target Schools: NYU Stern, CMU Tepper, Ross, Haas, Chicago Booth.
Stretch Schools: MIT LGO, Cornell, Columbia, Tuck.

Post MBA Plans: To work with M/B/B as a Strategy and Leadership consultant for 3-5 years and then transition to leadership role or start up an own venture.

Please let me know my chances at intended schools, especially Booth and Stretch schools.

Thank You!

Ok miss!
My pleasure!
But we're going to have to hunker down and get ready for a reality check. Your target schools are more or less way out range for you. (Sorry! I hate to tell people this, but better to know how it is now).

What are the negs in your profile that would hold you back:
- GMAT way too low. Your GMAT as an Indian needs to be 30 points ABOVE the average (due to huge competition) whereas yours is 20 points below in many of your schools
- Non IIT + So-so GPA
- Standard work experience at big Indian firms (from which there will be much competition.

Now, please don't let this get you down! Your profile is good. And you have some interesting work experience. But for Top 10 it just won't cut it. My suggestions:
- Retake the GMAT if you believe you can get 20 points higher or more. To give you some insights and logic to what your GMAT should look like as an Indian applicant have a look here:

- Apply to the 10-30 Range (if you can boost your GMAT score by 20 points) or the 20-40 range with your current score.


Please let me know if you have any follow up questions,
Best,

I agree. So I have revised my schools to: Tepper, UNC Kenan Flgaler, Ross, Duke, Georgia Tech,UCLA Anderson, UV Darden. Stretch Schools: NYU Stern, Cornell. Does this target list have any sure shot chances...since this has to be my only attempt to get into a bchool..there's no going back now or retaking the gmat..or taking up a job which I am not interested in.

Even if I do retake gmat, the increase in points wouldn't change my profile..my profile/work exp would remain the same. I am seeing no point in giving the exam again. Besides, hitting a 96 percentile in verbal again together with Q 48/50 would mean considerable effort again...I'd rather put the effort in my essays. Correct me if I am wrong here

Please let me know if you have any follow up questions,
