Hello everyone,

I am new to GMAT club. And I hope I am posting at the right place. I want my profile to be evaluated for both MFin and MBA programs.

Any other info is needed?

- Please comment about the chances and which one would be better considering that I am a bit inclined towards Finance, Consulting would be my second choice.

Hi uttamkgulshan,

You're ultimately asking Admissions questions, so you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. There's a Forum full of those Experts here:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admissio ... tants-124/

Since you don't have an Official GMAT Score yet, the analysis that those Experts will provide might be a bit limited - since your actual GMAT Score might be different from what you expect (and a significant difference in that Score would likely impact how your application is assessed).

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

Hi uttamkgulshan,

I agree that since you are asking an admissions question, you should reach out to one of the many admissions consultants here on GMAT Club.

Also, since you do not have any GMAT scoring data, it may not be a bad idea to familiarize yourself with the GMAT and then take an official GMAT practice exam. The results of that exam will provide a bird’s-eye view of your general strengths and weaknesses and show you how far you are from your 720 score goal.

If you have any further questions, feel free to reach back out.

Good luck!

Hi Sudhanshu1405,

First off, a 730 is an outstanding Score, so depending on your Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores, you should be able to comfortably apply to any Business Schools that interest you. That having been said, there's more to the application than just a GMAT Score - and many Business Schools expect 2-5 years of quality Work Experience (with leadership examples) from each Applicant. If you have no Work Experience, then your options will likely be limited. That having been said, you're ultimately asking Admissions questions, so you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile and application plans. There's a Forum full of those Experts here:

Hi Shradhs0105,

To start, you will likely receive more of a response if you start your own new thread (that way the discussion can stay focused on your specific situation and not on a variety of different subjects in this thread).

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can take 2 for free at www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 3.5 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
