Hello,
 

Kindly review my profile and share your valuable inputs. 

Profile: I completed my graduation in Fashion studies from one of the top 3 colleges in Asia in 2014 with a CGPA of 7.43. I have been working with the biggest apparel organization in the country since June 2014. Currently have a rich experience of 39 months.

 

Extra-curricular: I am a national level athlete and I am regularly involved in different sports.

Have also won national level quiz competitions. Have been involved with couple of NGOs during my college days.



I gave my third attempt of GMAT at the beginning of the week. Below are all my scores:
1st attempt : 680 (Q-50, V-30, IR-7, AWA - 4)
2nd attempt : 670 (Q-49, V-33, IR-7, AWA - 5)
3rd attempt : 700 (Q-50, V-34, IR-8, AWA- awaited).

Though i did manage to touch the psychological barrier of 700, I still feel I am 30 points shy of reaching my target score. I need your help in pursuing my MBA dreams. 

Below is the shortlist which I have done:

Location
1) US - Most preferred country for further education
2) Asia – ISB/NUS/NTU are the only preferred colleges for an Indian

Areas of interest : 1) General Management, 2) Marketing

I need your help in deciding which colleges I should apply.

 

I am targeting top 15 US B schools. So should I apply in Round 1 or give GMAT again and apply in Round 2 with a higher score?

As studying in my current job is becoming extremely tough, I am planning to switch my job and take a break of around a month between the jobs. 

 

Will it be okay if I plan my next GMAT attempt between a job switch?

Will a new job have any negative impact on my candidature?

I would retake your GMAT given you are targeting top 15, your 700 will limit your viability.

Will it be okay if I plan my next GMAT attempt between a job switch?
I think this should be fine, it is up to you and your prep so it is certainly possible to do both

Will a new job have any negative impact on my candidature?
Not necessarily, as long as it makes sense in your career trajectory it should not be an issue

Thanks a lot for your reply.

I do believe I can further take my score up to 730. Hopefully will be in a much better situation with a higher score. Work on application will remain same, irrespective of my score.

Can you suggest colleges which I should target keeping in mind my profile and my area of interest in general management/strategy?

Also with a 700 should I apply in any of the top colleges in R1 or should I wait for my next GMAT attempt attempt and target them in R2?

Will there be any negatives of applying in Round 2 ?

Also, as I have already done my under graduation in fashion, I don't want to confine myself when it comes to Masters. Hence looking for a more generalized field.

I would take a look at Ross, UVA, UNC, and Duke. No real negatives...more spots available in R1 but it is important to apply when your application is strongest

Thanks for your reply Dozie. I will concentrate on my next attempt of GMAT as of now. Will definitely get in touch with you around end of November when I am done with my exam. The list of colleges will definitely help me in deciding my target score.
