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.

I am an India, age 26.

PG: MBA in Finance (Minor in Operations), FMS, University of Delhi, 75.44% (Rank 4, Top 2% of the batch)

Yes, I am targetting a second MBA or an MS in Finance (yet to decide and I am inclined towards Finance)

Positions of Responsibility

Any other info is needed?

- I took CAT (an exam similar to GMAT in India) 2016 - Secured 99.87 percentile in CAT
- I have not taken GMAT yet (expecting 720+ )
- 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,
Rich

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!
