Hello,

It would be great if someone could take the time out to review my profile below:

Background:
- Indian, Female, 28
- Working in the market research industry as an Innovation Consultant with Kantar
- Bachelor in Product Design and Masters in Strategic Design Management from Top Design Schools in India

Work Experience
- Total experience - 3 Years
- 1.5 years of setting up a Not for Profit that aims at bringing creativity to public school classrooms. The program I designed is running in 100+ public schools
- Have been selected as a finalist for Commonwealth Youth Worker Award from Asia
- 1.5 years of experience as an innovation consultant helping businesses conduct user research and design new products and services


Goal
- To continue working in the innovation industry - products and technology
- Get a business know-how to be able to implement my role as a consultant better


What is the score I should aim for to get into the top 20 B schools?



Thanks!

You've got a unique background & some awesome experience! In terms of scores, you ideally want to at least hit a school's average. If you are below it they tend to place more weight on other aspects of your application. So your target GMAT is going to depend on what average scores look like at the schools you want to target. Generally speaking for top 20 you want to hit 700 (~720 for some top 5-10 schools) & if you can get a higher score than that it will be a factor that will help differentiate your app. That said, you have a unique background like I said so if you are slightly below the average (`20 points) it will not be a huge deal assuming the rest of your application is really strong.
