Hello !

Thank you for your response.

I am planning to retake but I am not sure if the score will increase as my last test was 6 months back.

Also, I am looking at an admit with scholarship, how do I know the amount of scholarship given by various schools for the purposes of school selection.


There are other threads about other schools. For Yale, it is merit-based and can cover up to full tuition and fees. It is highly competitive so you really need to increase your GMAT score to have a chance at those.

Please review my profile:

I am an Indian by nationality and completed my bachelor's in Computer Science Engineering from a State University (Punjab Technical University) with 74.93 %(Top 3% of my batch) and post which I worked for 13 months in a digital education startup. Fascinated by the Start-up world, and in order to learn the business side, I completed my MBA with Marketing majors from Symbiosis International University, which is a renowned Indian University. During my MBA I started two Startups, got angel funding of $75k which I used to scale those to a good level, but because of the shortage of personal funds had to sell those off. After that, I joined a durables start-up company in India and worked as a brand manager for 2 years. Right now I am working with a uber-luxury real estate brand, which is again a new well-funded startup, as a Brand Strategy lead.

Overall Work ex: 5 years(By Aug 2020)
Function of Work: Startup Strategy/ Marketing/ Brand Management
Industry: Durables/ Real Estate/ Education
GMAT score: 710 Q49 V 38
Why second MBA: To gain international exposure in the Start-up ecosystem which I couldn't get till now, preferably in Finance and join strategy/ Startup consulting. 10 years down the line I want to set up my own VC firm.
Undergrad Score: 74.93%(Top 3% of my batch)
Post Grad Score: 3.14/4( Top 2% of my batch)
Extra-Curricular:
1. Winner of 10 National level B Plan and Startup Accelerator competitions.Finalist in 5 competitions.
2. Founder of National Level NGO which is working towards women empowerment. Sponsored Study of 4k female children since 2010, in remote villages of north India.

Hey There,
I'm glad to see some very competent people on this thread! I hope I can get my profile evaluated too.

Age - 25
Nationality - Indian

Education - Bachelor's Degree Holder in Business Administration from an A-Grade Autonomous Commerce & Sciences College affiliated with Bangalore University. With a GPA equivalent to 3.0.

Extra-Curriculars -
- ex-LAMP Fellow 2016 - LAMP stands for Legislative Assistant to Member of Parliament. It is a prestigious fellowship that only a select, few bright young individuals attain in India. Under this fellowship, I was mentored by an Honourable Member of Parliament in the Lower house of the Indian Parliament- The Lok Sabha. Under this fellowship, I handled and prepared parliamentarian intervention and discussions in the lower house for my Mentor MP. I also conducted research and briefings on various national and international issues for conferences, media interactions, elections, constituency visits, and Indian representation meets at WTO, WEF, etc. (I also managed to attain a LOR in 2016 from my mentor MP, I need to know if that is alright if I apply in 2020)
- International Speech Contest District Finalist 2018, conducted by Toastmasters International.
-Active Volunteering and Fundraising work (2017-Present) at Non-Profits in Disaster Relief, Humanitarian aid, and Community development.

Professional Profile -

-Joined the same Tech Start-Up after nearly a year at the LAMP Fellowship as a full-time Business Development Partner. Helped the company see Series A and Series B funding. (1 year 6 months)
- Joined a top Consulting firm after realizing a career in consulting fits my passion. Joined as an Associate and worked in strategic minority investments and have been a top performer and in line for a promotion. (8 months and counting)

Before I apply next year (or maybe even in 2021) I want to see myself get promoted to ensure that I can show progress.

GMAT - 760 (December 2016) ( I also want to know if I can apply in round 1 and round 2 in 2021 given my GMAT score date)
My primary choices are Yale, Columbia, and Tuck. Slightly in favor of a 2 year MBA so INSEAD & other EU Schools are next priority.

Career Objective-
To have a great career in Management Consulting, in firms such as MBB. Eventually, work my way up to a Senior Partner Level and move to General Management positions at Fortune 500 companies/Go after my Entrepreneurial dream (if the situation allows me to)

Why Yale?
Consulting Emphasis. A Tightly knit Alumni network. The Ivy League brand value. Most importantly, the relatively smaller size of the class compared to Harvard/Stanford/Wharton and the obvious advantages that come along with it.

Kindly evaluate my profile and suggest a few places I can improve upon candidature for Yale.

I am an Indian male.

Background: Civil Engineering
Undergrad Information: 8.9/10 CGPA, Department Topper for Civil Engineering, Continuous 100% scholarship for all 4 years based on previous years performance.
The college is ranked 37 according to the government of India but it is one of the Top 5 private colleges in India. I chose it because of the scholarship and distance from my home.
GMAT: 710 (Q49 V38 AWA5 IR8) first attempt(was sick that day) and 770 (Q50 V45 AWA5 IR8) on the second attempt
WE: no full-time work experience as I am applying for the Silver Scholars programme
Leadership: Have been actively involved in numeorus activities on campus. Most notably I have worked for three years organising the annual Model United Nations Conference where I worked my way up to the position of Director-General with over 100 people working under me. I am also the president of the Entrepreneurship Club of the University and have organised multiple one of a kind events and interactions on campus. Also involved in the Student Chapters of multiple organizations in various capacities. I am one of two the elected class representatives for my batch.

Outside of campus, I have also been involved in social work. I have worked for two years with an NGO working for the rights of women and children in mainly an editorial role but contributing on the ground as and when required.
I have completed my certifications in Lean Management and Lean Six Sigma from the British Standards Institute as well as many certifications in Data Presentation and Project Management from Coursera.

Post MBA Goals: Finance has always been of great interest to me. I want to get into Venture Capital (maybe Impact Investing in particular) as I have always been interested in entrepreneurship and I like meeting new people and listening to new ideas. India is a great growth market for VC and I want to come back to India and contribute to the growth story here.

I plan to work in an early stage startup or a VC fund in the two year after graduating and start my CFA.

I wanted your advice on my profile and whether the mba programs i am targeting for the 2021 admit realistic and within my reach. (IE not in the dream school category).
My target schools are Columbia, Kellogg, Michigan ross, Berkeley haas and tuck.

I am a bachelors of commerce graduate with 6.4/7 cgpa from hr college in mumbai (Mumbai University) and a gmat score of 740.

I worked full time while in college , 2 years in an equity research and mutual fund sale firm and 1 year articleship as i was pursuing CA at that time. ( cleared 2 out of the three levels but finals are left which i will not give)

I am a US CFA charterholder and US CMA certificate holder. Have also completed US CPA and US CAIA (chartered alternative investment analyst).
I have been working past 3 years in a mid sized accountancy firm based in small city in rajasthan, india.
I had to shift to rajasthan due to severe family emergencies therefore started working there as my presence was required for family.
I left my job after two years as i found a wonderful opportunity in mineral and mining and have started my own venture in partnership.
Though it can be managed and is stagnant while in the state , i wanted to make it a wholly export unit and establish in strategic locations across couple of countries like in canada and portugal and run it as a more corporate and an organized business organisation, much different from how mining is run in this state.
Therefore i planned on pursuing an mba which will help me manage and organize my business in the manner i want to run it and expand it.
I am ready to invest and grill myself for a 2 year mba in order to take the maximum out of it. 

On the extra curricular activity note, i am a registered mumber of the heartfulness organisation (for meditation) for the past 4 years. Travelled all across the country and have organised various seminars and workshops, played a big part in the green initiative and planted by myself about 40 plus trees. Have also organised meditation sessions for army personnel in my state and have also successfully implemented heartfulness for kids in various schools wherein we are training teachers on how to plant this seed right from a very young age in students.
While in college, one of my most proudest moment was when i lead an NSS team ( national service scheme) and did something out of box by forming a union for the domestic help who were in very bad condition in mumbai so that the local police as well as the members themselves can protect the right of others and to make sure that they are not exploited, due to this the police area head and i had an exclusive coverage as well.
Despite my work experience, the thing i am concerned about is my international exposure in job. That is an area i lack.

Looks possible, your stats are a bit under the class average; what kind of undergrad?

https://som.yale.edu/programs/mba/admissions/class-profile

Hard major so that might help. Promotion is good. would need a more holistic picture to assess. Provide more info about leadership, contribution, international shiz, any diversity in terms of back story. How will you speak to the mission of preparing leaders for business and society? Any social orientation? Idea for commitment essay?

Hi gayatrisk1994

Solid profile there, with strong ECAs, a great GMAT score, decent CGPA, and some cutting-edge work + some good international experience.

The IT aspect of your profile, though, does put you in a competitive category. This does not put you out of contention, but it does mean that a greater focus on school selection should be there. In any case, you would now be applying in R1 in the Fall this year. What are your post-MBA goals?
