Hey can someone please provide their opinion of how good a chance I stand for Harvard, Wharton, Kellog, Booth or MIT Sloan?
GMAT- 730- Verbal 38, Quant-50

Indian Male with Undergrad from NIT Surat (Chemical Engg) (GPA 7.8/10)- Also have a Joint double degree from MDI Gurgaon (GPA-6.49) and ESCP Europe (France, course Master in Management) (14.6 ECTS/20)- All very respected colleges and good GPA's

Work Experience in detail- (June'11 to Aug'13) My role is Corporate Investment Banking in a Prominent Investment Bank in New Delhi- Key deals include raising 4 Billion $ for a Petrochemical Complex, Debt Restructuring of India's largest domestic Glass company (saving 500 jobs) and Project appraisals of a 5 star hotel, a large gas pipeline and Acquisition Advisory for Assets worth upto 1.2 Billion $ in the Shale Gas Domain in America (for an Indian Company). My work is dealing with Banks, Clients, Consultants, creating financial model and info report. I have also worked on Business development and got business worth over 100,000 $ for the company

I also work part time at an NGO teaching english to orphan kids (Since August'11)

I have good extra curriculars and was actively involved in Organizational activities and in Music.

Short term- I want to shift to a PE player abroad. My work is quite similar to what goes on in a PE (including M&A, syndication and Debt restructuring). I want a global environment and an international career. I would prefer to shift towards the equity side from the Debt side and will prefer exposure to other more consumer oriented sectors instead of Oil& Gas & Infra.

Long term goals: Would like to shift to a VC firm or explore opportunities in subsidiaries (where the parent PE or VC has invested). I will prefer to become an enterpreneur if I ever do get the opportunity.

My preference of area to settle - region wise- USA or any part of the developed world.

Please let me know whether I stand a good chance.

Hi Gautam,

Thanks for submitting your profile. I think it's quite strong. You've got a balanced profile - strong academics, strong professional experience and even consistent involvement in an NGO. I'd say you have a shot at the programs you've listed, but you'll want to spend some time thinking about how you're going to differentiate yourself from other IB candidates (who also have strong scores and some community service when applying). Can you weave a strong personal story into the application to complement it?

I'd also add some safer programs to the mix - maybe Michigan, NYU, and Duke?

Hope this helps,
