My profile has been one with extreme ups and downs so i would just like to know if i should even apply for colleges. My aim is top 15-18 European colleges.
Age 29
Nationality Indian

My profile is as follows
Class 10- 85%
Class 12- 65%
Studied Engineering at a top NIT for 3 years before dropping out to pursue my Gaming career tried to make my hobby a career but Failed in the said gaming career. Did my graduation in Economics and Accounting passed with 50% marks.
Got at job at a nationalized Bank. Handled corporate finance for my branch with around $0.5 Billion worth of loans. Also worked for a bit in Forex Department handling import section. Total work Ex 2 years. Have some diplomas in Banking and Finance from Indian institute of Banking and Finance.
Switched jobs and got a job in the premier investigative agency of India where i have been working for 3 years now working as an investigator, investigating financial crimes. Worked on some high profile Financial crimes while being here.
Gave GMAT last year and scored 740. I can increase the score more if it can increase my chances of landing a good college.
The reason i want to pursue MBA is to get a more rewarding job. The present one is extremely stressful with almost 15 days of traveling, sometimes to extremely small places no fixed schedule and no rewards neither financial nor career related.

Hi coolcows,

Thanks for sharing your profile. Your academic background will be a weak point on your applications, but fortunately since the application evaluation is holistic, it will not be an immediate deal breaker. You need to demonstrate you've matured since college, are committed to your career, and have the academic abilities to do well in the MBA program. Your 3 year tenure in your current role will help a lot to show your growth and commitment, and even though it sounds like a challenging/demanding schedule, it also sounds like very interesting work (and quite different from most other MBA applicants). So I think that should help you a lot in this process. As far as proving your academic abilities, and to counteract your low marks in college, GMAT is your best bet. You have an excellent score already, but if you feel you could score higher without a ton of effort, give it another shot! It would definitely improve your chances.

I think overall that if you're smart about which schools you target, and you apply to a range of schools from stretch to safety, you should have some good options. Of course, execution of the essays will be important for you to demonstrate why you want your MBA and the qualities I mentioned above.

Good luck!
Kate
