Hi Team,

Can you please evaluate my profile and let me know my likelihood of getting into one of the B-Schools listed below.

I am a Petroleum Data Analyst from Petrolink International Ltd. I currently hold 3.5 years of experience, which will become 4+ before entering B School. Before Data Analyst, I worked as geologist in Focus Energy Ltd. There's an employment gap though, After completing about 2 year at Focus, I went for Master of Technology (2 year course) in Petroleum Technology and after passing out in 2015, I was not successful in getting placed for about a year. Therefore I used that year to work in a Charitable trust as trainer in petroleum engineering at Hyderabad meanwhile preparing for various exams like gate, gre and gmat. My Goal is to become a Operations Management Consultant or business Analyst and I am open to any culture and demographic.

My past Score:
720 July 2018

My Alma-mater:
Andhra University, Vishakapatnam - GPA - 8.9, Masters in Technology Petroleum Exploration and production
University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, Dehradun (Top 10 Earth Science Institure in Asia PAcific at the time of admission) - CGPA: 2.75/4, UG in Geo-Informatics Engineering.
Delhi Publis School : 78 %
St. Francis Convent School : 76%

My work experience include:
1 years 8 months as a Mud Logging Geologist - Worked to gather and analyse drilling data to make the whole exploration of hydrocarbon process safer and as detailed as possible. Because of this work exp I have developed a good understanding on exploration operation techniques
1 year 4 month as a Petroleum Data Analyst - Client's are Chevron, Hess, Shell and Saudi Aramco. Working as a support and Techno-functional role at client cite in drilling operations. As a Petroleum Data Analyst had to learn a complete new technology like Data Analytical tools (SAS, R , Python, Algorithm Building) to model and visualize terabytes of drilling data generated in real time.

Schools am aiming for:
ISB
INSEAD
Rotman
Jones Business School (Houston)
MIT (if possible)

please i do require a honest grading from ambitious to inside my strike zone. Can you please suggest some schools that are under my wing so that it can lay in line with my future goals and aid me in becoming a better Operations Manager or Business Analyst

Please note that: My nationality is Indian

Waiting with fingers crossed.
Thank you,
Best Regards
Suel

Hi there,

Thanks for your post. Assuming the work experience you do have does not include the 'gap' but is in addition, I think you can explain the gap and still be qualified for schools on your list like Jones & Rotman and similar caliber programs. MIT & INSEAD will be out of reach in my view. Keep looking around at other programs too; in the US outside the top 15 or so, and in Europe outside the top 5-8 or so for better chances if interested, or local programs too. Additional work experience may still serve you better if you aren't sure about applying yet; additional community involvement would be a plus too. Good luck on the process!

Assuming the work experience you do have does not include the 'gap' but is in addition... Can you please explain this?

Also I am planning to give gmat again in 2-3 months time, So what approximate score I should target for INSEAD and ISB Hyd ?

Hiya,
I just meant assuming the 3.5 years was NOT including gap time ;) (obvious statement hopefully but you never know).

Re: scores, certainly the higher the better and you can only do the best you can do.... but 740/750+ perhaps? Feel free to chime in after your test and let us know!
