Hi,

I am a 29 year old Indian female (will turn 30 this August) looking to join a full time MBA program in the US.

Educational history:
B.Tech & M.Tech (Dual degree) from one of the top IITs in 2008
Major: Biochemical Engineering & Biotechnology
GPA: 3.3/4.0
Placed in top 5 in department class

CBSE Grade 12th: 88%
CBSE Grade 10th: 93%


GMAT Test Scores:
Yet to appear. The following are my Unofficial GMAT Scores from GMAT Test Prep software:

IR 8/92%
Quant 50/90%
Verbal 41/93%
Total 760

I think I should score between 720 and 760 in the real thing.


Extra-curriculars:
Worked closely with 2 NGOs for teaching under-privileged kids at IIT. This experience has hugely affected my choice of career as well.
Trained Indian Classical singer (4 years diploma holder). Captain of the Music Team at IIT hostel. Represented my state at All India Singing Contests three times.
Captain of the Table Tennis women's team at IIT.


Work history:
In 2008, I founded and set up a non-profit K-12 school in a rural setting near Delhi. I now manage a staff of 80+ including some educators more than 30 years older than I am. Current student strength is 800+ and growing.
All required affiliations and systems are in place and the term loan is paid off.

Now I'm looking to do an MBA either to switch into consulting for the non-profit/ education sector or to build another start-up in the technology for education sector and scale it up to reach rural schools all across India and other developing countries.
I think a full time MBA will help me to consolidate what I have learned so far.


Schools I'm thinking about:
Since I'm 30 already, my strategy is to apply at 2 stretch, 2 target and 1 safety schools. I would appreciate if you could suggest which ones I have the best chances with.
Right now I'm thinking about Stanford, Columbia, Kellogg, UCLA, Haas & ISB Hyderabad (Safety).


Since my work history is unconventional for IIT graduates, it would be a great help if I could get an evaluation.

Thanks
Admission Consultant

Hi there -
Thanks for reaching out for a free evaluation. In lieu of writing a lengthy reply, I'd rather we connect via Skype so we may have a real dialogue and you can ask me questions as I give you an assessment. Additionally, I will be able to offer you a much more robust assessment if I am able to ask you more questions. Just for starters, in your list of schools you have only one realistic program - Anderson. All the other programs in the US are reach/stretch programs. That said, I think your profile is very interesting and certainly unlike most Indian applicants. If do a free consult via skype interests you. please contact me directly at kathrynlucas@squareoneprep.com.

I look forward to hearing from and speaking with you soon. Thanks again for reaching out.
