Hi,

Profile:

Indian male - 23 yrs old
Mechanical Engineering - Manipal University (Batch of 2016) - 9.12 CGPA
12th standard - CBSE - 93.2 %
10th standard - ICSE - 82.7 %
1 yr work ex at Bosch Ltd. as Graduate Apprentice in manufacturing process planning and process improvement
6 months work ex at an eMobility startup as Design Engineer
Decent extra-curricular profile

I have had the opportunity to work on a number of technical projects at Bosch. The projects were mostly focused towards process improvement activities. I was the project owner of a couple of projects while others were part of a bigger project being driven by an experienced manager. Work at Bosch has helped me grow professionally by exposing me to the best practices in business and engineering.

At the startup, I led the mechanical design work by setting the direction for the product, building and testing prototypes. Work encompassed technical work as well as vendor negotiation(techno-commercial).

I've had the opportunity to lead a team of 5 for a technical project in college, organized, took part and won events in college.

Aiming for 720+ GMAT and targeting fall 2019 MiM session. Will be applying most probably in 2nd round.

Kindly help answer the following questions:

1) What are my chances of securing admission to a top MiM program?
2) What are the colleges I should target at?
3) What are the chances of scholarship with this profile?

Eagerly waiting for help in this regard.

I can't guarantee your submission but with that experience and target GMAT score I would say it's fairly secure.
What is your CGPA out of though? Is it a 10 point scale?

Kudos are appreciated~

eka27 I'd say with those schools thats definitely possible! Amazing GPA by the way you weren't kidding. But are the question marks next to those schools signifying that you don't know if you'll apply to them?

kudos are appreciated~

Thanks! :-)

It's rather I'm not sure if I'd have a chance there//

I'm also worried about GMAT// is it better to apply in R1 with 700, or in R2 with (potentially) higher (not sure if I could do >720 without taking a vacation to prepare to be honest)

eka27 i'm sure you could get your score to a 720! Even with a busy schedule it's possible. Most cut offs are 700 but if your work exp is good and with that stellar gpa it should be good enough!

gaganpreet94 that's great! I see nothing wrong with targetting some good schools, especially if you hit that 720. What schools are you currently considering?

I'm looking at HEC Paris, ESCP, ESSEC and some backup schools in Canada like Queens, Toronto, York and Mcgill.
Can you help with the school selection?

Please review my profile, I'll be applying to schools starting in 2019:

I am 24 years old, Indian female. I am targeting schools in Europe and Canada mostly.

X- 94.4%
XII- 94.8%
B.E in Chemical Engineering- 9.01/10 CGPA from M.S Ramaiah Institute of Technology
GMAT - 660 (not too pleased with the score, might go for a re-take)

Work-Ex- 36 months with a leading multi-national insurance firm. I work in the loss prevention and risk management domain for various commercial and energy enterprises. My job involves a fair bit of travelling and client consulting in various parts of the world, I perform property audits to improve the quality of risk and at the same time assist the company in deciding if we should be writing this business or not.

I like what I am doing right now and I believe than an MBA will widen my opportunities and give me an outlook that can make a bigger impact in the market.

Extra Curricular- I have been training in classical dance since I was seven, I have even taken it up professionally while I was in college performing with various troupes in events such as BRICS summit, Kyoto to Kashi etc. Additionally, I was the dance team head in college.

I was a part of a youth group which consisted of individuals from various colleges across the city, we organised events to raise awareness towards social issues.

I am passionate about public speaking and actively associated with the Toastmasters Club at my work place, currently the Associate President of the Club.

Lastly, I like writing - I have an online blog that I started earlier this year as well as Newsletter that I am editor of at my work place. Other active interests include yoga, fitness and literature.

Awards - Employee of the Quarter, Triple Crown Award (Toastmasters Org.), Best Final Project (College, IIChe)

Papers - 2 published papers while I was completing my undergrad.

My major concern with respect to the application is my GMAT score (My target score was 700-730 while prepping). I want to attempt it again and hopefully cross the 700 mark. :?
What would be my prospects like if I apply with my current score?
Is there anything that would strengthen my application further especially with respect to scholarship options?

I am personally biased towards York and Toronto in Canada. Queens is a good second and I'm not sure Mcgill is really that good a candidate but could make a good backup.
I'm not too familiar with European schools but I've heard good things about ESSEC
