Hey gautam124
Thanks for getting in touch. With 12 years out of school, you are much more experienced than the average MBA candidate. My suggestion given your level of experience is that you focus on executive programs or that you focus on lower-ranked programs, where your 12 years of experience and 650 will not harm you overmuch. I think you've done the right thing already by reaching out to schools directly and seeing what they say. I'm glad you have already received some positive feedback from a few schools. Rotman and Ivey are probably going to be tough -- and it sounds like Ivey has already told you this -- because of your level of experience and your GMAT. You'll also find that scholarships are hard to get at the top school level so if money is what you are after, go outside the top 20. I hope that helps!

My best,
Krista

Hi srishti201996
Thanks for getting in touch! To be fair, we focus more on MBA applicants than Masters of Management applicants but it still sounds like you have some good things going for you. I do worry that your GMAT is on the lower side for your demographic. If you've only taken the exam once, for the best shot at this process, I recommend taking the exam again and trying to get yourself up over 700. Look at the average GMAT scores for the MiM programs you are interested in, and then add at least 30 points to get to the score you want to target.
Also, for your goals, definitely flesh them out a bit. Start your own business doing what? Make sure that's clear to the AdComs. You should also look at their employment reports and understand what typical career paths look like. If entrepreneurship isn't a big feature of the program, you may want to make that more a long-term goal and go with something the school is well-positioned to help you with in the short-term.
I hope that helps!
Krista

Hi Apawar91
Thanks for getting in touch. This can be a tough process and your demographic is very competitive in two ways: Indian engineer by degree and then banker by profession. To be successful and stand out, I'd really want to see 750+. (Get a private tutor to just work on what YOU need. Also, while the AWA isn't likely the reason you were dinged, the 4 is a bit of a red-flag to me and makes me wonder what your essays looked like so please try to get that score up too.) It can also be challenging to crack some schools without IIT on your CV, but obviously there's not much you can change there. I do think you'd be a more interesting applicant if you were London-based. Not many people get selected for an international transfer, so if GS is offering that to you, it says a lot about you. (Although I am a little worried about 3 banks in 3 years.) Non-profit is hard to comment on without knowing more, and at this stage, you'd only have about 6 months there before applying to b-school and you've already switched employers three times...so staying put is my gut reaction, but opting for the international transfer if you can swing it.

For your reapplications, I highly recommend getting everything in in R1. Also, look around at GS and any recent former colleagues who have gotten into top b-schools. Where have they gone? What did their profiles look like? What were their stats? Who wrote their recs? Gathering this information will give you more insight into what might be possible.

I also recommend a much broader swath of schools and I would encourage you to think beyond the M7, especially if you can't break 730 on the GMAT. I know that may not be what you want to do, but this is a highly competitive process and there are no shortage of male investment bankers applying, particularly ones educated in India.

Krista

Hi!! Can you please evaluate my profile?

Indian Male
Class 10 : 95.6%
Class 12 : 95.2%
UnderGrad(2015) : 8.25/10
GMAT : 660(Q-43;V-38)
Planning to apply for 2019 intake.

Work Experience:
1. 24 months - a leading IT service provider; currently part of a 3 member team.
2. A couple of months in a state owned enterprise.

Have organized a number of events in college; involved in the complete build-up of events right from brainstorming names for the event to distribution of awards. Also have designed posters, banners and certificates as part of the events.
Community service : Few and far between; but planning on improving on this in the days to come.

I am planning on making a switch to a marketing career, specifically in the consumer goods sector and I feel that an MBA would help my cause. I plan on taking up the GMAT one more time. What are my chances of being admitted into some of the top(top 20 -30) programs.
Also would it be beneficial if I get some part time(say internship) experience in the marketing domain before I start my MBA? Or would an internship after a few years of full-time work be considered a negative?
