Hi everyone,

I am currently in working on my b-school application (giving GMAT in 3 weeks) and needed some feedback about the applicant pool I would be considered in.

I have a background in Engineering, did my UG from India (got 100% tuition scholarship)

However, my citizenship is Thai and I have worked in Thailand, Hong Kong and now in the US for the past two years. Additionally, my firm is sponsoring my green card and I should have that within the next few months. My overall experience is 5 years.

I have been having a hard time of narrowing down the applicant pool I would be compared to and how to make myself stand out from them.
A high GMAT score is one way, but what about the rest of the profile? Will it be competitive for M7 schools (Booth & Kellogg)? Will I be a diversity candidate?

If it helps, I am looking to use an M7 MBA to transition into energy consulting.

Any feedback is much appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi akrockheartz19,

Thank you for your post. You will be considered as a Thai applicant. In your applications, I would be sure to mention your diversity of experiences, especially for Kellogg. Top universities look at two macro-categories when evaluating a profile: the quantitative and qualitative. While there are qualitative components in the quantitative section, this category is where they look at your academics (university and GPA), GMAT, work experience (the type of work that you do), and extracurricular (your involvement in building community). The qualitative component takes into account the quantitative, acting as a web weaving your background and experiences to tell them who you are and where you are going. They look for leadership, outstanding achievement, quality of work experience, international exposure, etc.. They care that you not only succeed in the program but also add value to your cohort.

Happy to evaluate your profile further for the M7s. If interested, click here to coordinate a free 30-minute consultation.

Good luck!

I agree that you would be considered a Thai applicant in this case, which is good news for you. As for the strength of your profile besides that, I really don’t have enough information about you to be able to assess that. But you are welcome to send the ARINGO team your CV here: https://aringo.com/mba-process-registration/
for a free profile evaluation. If you have any additional information to add, such as extra curricular etc., please mention that as well.
